2021 Ford Explorer changes our opinion about crossovers, mostly those that are shaped like a box. We take them for granted, finding them boring and old-fashioned, but Explorer changes our feeling about these models. It is modern and greatly designed, has great equipment in the cabin and surely one of the best elegantly shaped chassis, in spite of its flat sides.
- The model is large and wide thanks to the specific boxy shape.
- There are great engines under the hood.
- The model is not that modern and attractive at first glance.
- The best version of it is very expensive.
2021 Ford Explorer remains the unique (or even more) cubic shape of the front end, putting Dodge Durango as the only competitor that this model can have. Even though looks a little boxy and maybe boring for this class, the shape that new Explorer has brought more aerodynamic, more space inside, thanks to the longer wheelbase and surely unique design.
The rear end is not significantly changed from the last year model. On the other hand, the side of the vehicle became soft and better shaped than before, providing great unique design.
The cabin inside of the model is wide and comfortable, even in the rear rows of the seats. The only that the manufacturer maybe have mistaken in 2021 Ford Explorer is maybe the too high position of the rear rows, which decreases the size of the rear row and the trunk.
Even the technology is unique in this car. They have a 12-inch touchscreen and a modern infotainment system that provides information and better controlling.
2021 Ford Explorer is a model of the crossover that runs on the strong engine which does not lose the power even with the increases of the load that vehicle takes. So, if you have 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine in your new vehicle it will be able to carry 5,300 pounds, while the stronger engine that comes in Platinum trim version 3.0-liter V6 model it will have 5,600 towing capability.
The first version produces 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This engine is marked as the best option that comes with this model, almost better than the stronger one, and even with impressive 23 mpg fuel economy, again, better than Subaru Accent or Mazda CX-9 have. Yet, they are must weaker and smaller than the engine in Explorer. The second engine could have 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. There could be found a hybrid option, too, made as a combination of the 3.3-liter V6 engine and an electric motor. It produces 240 horsepower.
