In a segment that’s full of options, the 2021 Ford Explorer continues to stand out as one of Canada’s most popular midsize SUVs! The versatile Explorer can easily adapt to your busy and changing lifestyle, whether you’re taking on more responsibilities at the jobsite, or adding an extra car seat to the rear. The already popular model was stripped down to it’s frame and redesigned from the ground up on a brand new platform in 2020, making it more spacious, safe and powerful than ever before.
New for 2021, Ford has dialed-up the luxury, adding heated seats and a heated steering wheel (perfect for chilly Meadow Lake mornings), additional storage solutions throughout the roomy cabin and a seriously sleek Sport Appearance Package on the XLT trim. Standard rear-wheel drive and optional AWD makes this midsize SUV handle with confidence on everything from flat stretches of Saskatchewan highway to rugged northcountry terrain. Sleek yet bold exterior styling, complete with the famous Ford grill and emblem, lets everybody know that whether you’re picking up the kids from hockey practice or hauling your camper into the Tobacco Root Mountains for a weekend of adventure, your 2021 Explorer is built Ford tough.
The 2021 Ford Explorer is built on Ford’s most innovative platform, which includes a longitudinally-mounted engine and standard rear-wheel drive. This gives the Explorer exceptional handling and towing capacity (up to 5,600-pounds!), not to mention one of the most spacious interior cabins of any SUV on the road. There are multiple engine options available in the 2021 Explorer, including a fuel-efficient and peppy turbocharged four-cylinder, which allows you to truly customize your ride. While all of the 2021 Explorer models boast serious power under the hood, the 2021 Explorer ST is the most powerful Explorer to date with an available 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque - strength that rivals some light duty trucks. Eco-conscious Canadians will appreciate that the 2021 Ford Explorer also offers a powerful hybrid engine.
“Base, XLT, and Limited trims come with a 300-hp turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, and it motivates the Explorer with authority. The lead-foot drivers among us will love either the Platinum model, with its 365-hp twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6, or the sporty Explorer ST, which uses a 400-hp version of the same engine.
All Ford models stand out as some of the safest vehicles on the road thanks to Ford’s Co-Pilot 360, which uses driver-assist technology to be your extra set of eyes, ears and reflexes on the road. With a massive suite of standard safety features, you can feel confident that the 2021 Explorer is doing its part to keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians in Saskatchewan safe. Take a peek at just a few of the ways that Ford is using innovative tech to make drivers more confident and our roads safer than ever:
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking can scan the road ahead and alert you to potential collisions, even applying emergency brakes if you don’t take action.
Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert can detect and alert you to vehicles in your blind spot or behind you.
Auto High-Beam Headlamps are designed to brighten and dim automatically, so that you can concentrate on chatting with your kids after school or your friends on a road trip.
Ford’s intelligent Lane Keeping System can scan the lines on the road and alert you if you are veering out of your lane. If it happens repeatedly, a coffee cup icon will appear on the dash to let you know that it’s time for a break. Now that’s a car that cares!
Not only is Ford’s tech innovation keeping people safe, but it’s also adding a high level of convenience and luxury to their driving experience. With FordPass, you have a huge range of apps and services available right on your smartphone, so you can do everything from contact roadside assistance in an emergency to find a place to feed the kids during a long road trip - which, in our opinion, could also be considered an emergency! In the 2021 Ford Explorer, you’ll also find a beautiful and easy-to-use LCD touchscreen console, Apple/Android CarPlay connectivity, a host of hands-free bluetooth features, wireless charging ports throughout the vehicle and Waze navigation. Talk about a vehicle that can do it all!
Most three-row family crossovers are just minivans in disguise. The 2021 Ford Explorer is different. Although certainly spacious and family friendly, the latest Explorer is for those who want their SUV to have guts… between (its) engines and the Explorer's rear-wheel-drive platform, there's nothing minivan about it.
The Explorer is a long-time favourite among Saskatchewan families and adventure-seekers (and adventure-seeking families!), and here at Pineridge Ford we can’t wait to get you behind the wheel of the exciting 2021 Ford Explorer.
