Ford Explorer Trim Levels


Cargo Volume

EPA-Estimated MPG

Ford Explorer

Its base trim level comes with many features, from safety technologies to various systems inside the cabin. That includes the driver-assistive systems as part of Ford Co-Pilot360™ like:

  • Lane-Keeping System
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps

Inside the 2021 Ford Explorer, there is also a standard tri-zone electronic automatic temperature control system. This allows front- and second-row passengers to each set individual temperatures for their areas.

Ford Explorer XLT

One nice addition you will find in the XLT trim level is the heated front seats. With these, you can quickly warm up when driving to work or when driving the kids to school in the morning. The exterior of the XLT trim also features a few changes with:

  • Chrome liftgate appliqué
  • LED signature lighting
  • Roof rack side rails
  • Black mesh insert with chrome bars

This all adds a little more style to your SUV, as well as more utility, since the side rails give you the capability to carry more cargo on top of the 2021 Explorer.

Ford Explorer Limited

Inside the Limited trim, you will get an advanced version of the SYNC® infotainment system, which features a voice-activated navigation system. The interior also gets a little bit of a makeover with changes that include:

  • Leather seating surfaces with micro-perforation
  • Accent stitching
  • Second-row heated captain's chairs

You will also get to sing along to all your favorite songs as it plays through the 12-speaker B&O Sound System that is equipped in the Limited trim level.

Ford Explorer ST

If you want to enjoy a sportier ride in your new SUV, then the ST trim level is for you. That is because it comes with a powerful 3.0L EcoBoost® engine, as well as a unique sport-tuned independent front and rear suspension system. This engine packs plenty of power for an exciting ride wherever you go.


3.0L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® V6




415 lb-ft

Speaking of wherever, that is exactly where you can take the ST trim, since it also comes equipped with the Intelligent 4-wheel drive (4WD) system. Whether the roads become slippery or you turn off onto an unpaved path, this system will provide the traction needed to keep you steadily moving.

Ford Explorer King Ranch

The King Ranch is another trim level that comes with its own sense of style and elegance. That is because its interior features unique Del Rio leather. This will be found throughout the cabin covering the seats, center console, and steering wheel. Complementing its Southwestern style is the Java door sill scuff plates.

Ford Explorer Platinum

The last of the 2021 Ford Explorer trim levels, the Platinum trim also features a stylish and luxurious interior. Everything from the Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces with accent stitching to the black carpet floor mats with Brunello stitching provide an upscale and first-class ride in the Platinum trim. It also comes with Active Park Assist 2.0, which will let the Explorer steer itself into open parking spaces in either crowded parking lots or along the street.
