2021 Ford Explorer | Phoenix, AZ

The Ford Explorer is an American icon, and for good reason. The all-time bestselling SUV in the United States, the Explorer has a reputation for delivering when it comes to power, presence, and versatility. With the new and improved Ford Explorer, available now at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Ford takes its rugged icon and makes it even more robust.

Under the hood

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes with four engine options, offering impressive performance for a wide range of needs. Great for saving on fuel, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine delivers a vigorous 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Ford offers two powerful versions of its twin-turbocharged3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6. With the Explorer Platinum, you’ll get 365 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. With the incredibly powerful Explorer ST, the stakes are raised and output is boosted to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

If you’re looking to cut your carbon footprint, the 3.3-liter Hybrid engine doesn’t make you compromise, delivering 318 net system horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque.


The Explorer is built to be versatile and functional. This fun-to-drive SUV comes with available Intelligent 4WD, which optimizes handling on harsh terrain and lets you enjoy the ride as you please. Perfect for an active lifestyle, the Explorer also lets you tow up to 5,600 pounds when properly equipped — making it ideal for hauling small boats, ATVs, and more. You can also cut loose thanks to the Terrain Management System™, which lets you choose between various driving modes, while a MacPherson® strut front suspension creates a comfortable ride wherever you go.

Interior features

You won’t want to leave the driver’s seat of the Explorer thanks to its wide range of amenities. Part of the excitement that surrounds the Explorer is due to its striking design inside and out, which includes available perforated leather, accented stitching, and aluminum accents. This model seats seven comfortably, which means everyone in the family has space.

You can also find an available B&O premium sound system, which is great for music lovers, while the family-friendly interior has an impressive 87.8 cubic feet of total cargo room behind the first row. Plus, the optional twin-panel moonroof creates an open-air atmosphere as you drive.


The value of the Explorer doesn’t just stop with its refined materials, as this model also comes with several high-tech features. Every 2021 Ford Explorer features SYNC® 3 infotainment, which includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. With available SYNC® 3 AppLink®, you can tap into handy features like Waze navigation and Ford+Alexa. And with a built-in FordPass Connect™ Wi-Fi hotspot, up to 10 devices can connect to high-speed internet on the go.

Exterior highlights

The Explorer breaks away from the competition when it comes to engineering and design, which drivers will notice at first glance. The striking exterior design comes with sweeping contours, and athletic stance, and a distinguished front fascia. You can upgrade to the Explorer ST for a particularly sporty ride, which comes with Adaptive LED lighting and available LED fog lamps to improve visibility, while aluminum accents and a liftgate spoiler add an air of sportiness to the look.

You can also opt for several exterior features, such as rain-sensing wipers, an alloy-finished grille, a roof rack, or power-folding mirrors. Plus, an available hands-free power liftgate makes loading and unloading cargo easier.

Safety features

This includes Auto High-Beam Headlamps, which turn on and off depending on traffic and visibility, a Rear-View Camera to make reversing easier, and a Lane-Keeping System to prevent you from drifting out of your lane.
