Whenever you need to pack up more gear, whether you are heading out for a road trip or just need to move furniture, you can fold down the rear seats in the 2021 Explorer to give yourself even more space to fit it all inside your SUV. Doing this will give you a maximum of 87.8 cubic feet of cargo volume, or even 47.9 cubic feet of cargo volume when folding down just the third-row seats.

Organize all of your gear, too, in the back of the Explorer with the Cargo Management System, so you can make everything easily accessible. When loading and unloading cargo, the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate lets you open up the back of your Explorer while still holding all of your gear.

Features Found Inside the Explorer

There is plenty more beyond just the space to enjoy inside the 2021 Ford Explorer. With a standard tri-zone electronic automatic temperature control system, you and your passengers will have separate temperature settings for each area of the cabin. On top of that, there are more available features that enhance your comfort even more. These include:

  • Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating
  • Twin-panel moonroof
  • Heated steering wheel

Active Motion®, which comes with the available multicontour seats, takes your comfort to another level too. With its five different massage themes, you'll never want to get out of your Explorer! With an available 10.1-inch capacitive portrait touchscreen, too, you can display directions, play your favorite tunes, and call friends while you drive. 

Performance Specs

The Ford Explorer also offers various powertrain options that let you decide the exact performance you want from your SUV. The three engine options are as follows:

  • 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4
  • 3.0L EcoBoost® V6
  • 3.3L Hybrid

The standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine creates 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque while also getting an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 highway MPG. More power is generated by the available V6 engine, which produces up to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

It is also matched with the Intelligent 4-wheel drive (4WD) system that provides all-weather, all-terrain performance. Giving you even better efficiency around town from day to day is the available hybrid powertrain. That is because this engine helps the Ford Explorer get up to an EPA-estimated 27 city MPG.
