Choose Your Engine

Explorer helps you make the most of your next big adventure with a rear-wheel-drive platform and your choice of four powerful engines.

Enhanced 3.0L EcoBoost V6

Specially tuned by engineers at Ford Performance to deliver best-in-class V6 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque, the enhanced 3.0L EcoBoost V6 gives you the commanding performance you’re looking for. Comes standard on the Explorer ST.

3.0L EcoBoost V6

Twin turbocharging and direct-injection technology give this 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine the ability to generate virtually instantaneous power on demand for merging or passing when you need it (365HP and 380 lb.-ft. max torque) Comes standard on the Explorer Platinum.

3.3L V6 Hybrid

With a powerful electric motor within the 10-speed transmission, this highly capable engine goes the distance, and then some. And, with 322 lb.-ft. of total combined system torque and a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 lbs., this engine has plenty of power to move you, too.

Everything in here helps keep you connected to everything out there.

Staying connected is easy in the all-new 2021 Ford Explorer. Voice-activated SYNC® 3 puts everything you need on the tip of your tongue – or right at your fingertips – thanks to a standard 8" touchscreen, while your smartphone lets you use your native assistant to stay connected while keeping your eyes on the road, and your hands on the wheel.

Deep Snow / Sand

Similar to the trial mode, this setting adjusts the transmission shift schedule, traction control, and driveline configuration for better handling in deep snow in 4WD.


This one is self explanatory – Eco mode helps increase driving range by maximizing efficiency

This mode is designed to be used during everyday driving, providing a fine-tuned balance of excitement and comfort.


Feel the excitement of increased throttle response and quicker shifts for a more aggressive feel. The transmission will hold shifts for longer to help accelerate faster when shifting.

Tow / Haul

Take advantage of higher engine speeds to reduce the transmission shift frequencies when pulling your gear. This mode also provides engine braking in every forward gear to assist in control when descending a grade.


Feel confident in rutted, muddy, or uneven terrain. The "Trail" mode adjusts the transmission shift schedule and traction control for much better handling in the roughest conditions.

2021 Ford Explorer Trims

2021 Ford Explorer XLT

The best way to describe the 2021 XLR is “Sporty and Sophisticated,” especially when outfitted with the Sport Appearance Package. The XLT comes with a beautiful 20” wheel, chrome dual exhaust tips, and a Carbonized Grey Grille.

Standard on the XLT is the 10-way power driver's seat, 2nd-row captain's chairs with EZ entry, and heated front seat. There's no surprise that the XLT is the first choice for most when it comes to the Ford Explorer.

Limited Hybrid

There's almost no limit to where you can go in your Limited Hybrid, thanks to its available off-road capability. Don't worry, you can bring all your toys along for the ride with the 322lb.-ft. of max torque and max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.


If you're looking for an Explorer with bragging rights, look no further. The ST comes standard with a twin-turbo 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine – boasting 400HP and 415 lb-ft. of torque. The 2021 ST is the most powerful Explorer ever.

Stand out with the unique styling that includes chrome quad exhaust tips, beautiful ST projection lamps, and 21" aluminum wheels.


If you're looking for Luxury, the 2021 Platinum has got you coverer. From its satin-aluminum-finish grille to the 1st-row leather seating surfaces, accent stitching, and signature embroidery, this explorer is pure luxury.

And, with a Cargo Area Management System with cargo net, rear cargo well protector, and reversible load floor that makes packing it all in a breeze, Platinum combines luxury and versatility in one beautiful package.
