Ford Explorer For Sale in Katy, TX

The kids hankering for some outside fun this weekend? Hop into a Ford Explorer and take them to Bear Creek Pioneers Park for the trails and the zoo.

Both classic and fashion-forward, the first four-door SUV ever produced by Ford gets another refresh this model year. The high-performance ST and the Limited Hybrid trim levels, which were introduced in 2020, get additional boosts to their already lauded introductions last year. But the Explorer's other trim levels also get powerful turbo engines plus style and technology additions, giving drivers even more reason to love the midsize SUV.

What's new for the 2021 Ford Explorer?

Among the many changes in store for drivers of the 2021 Ford Explorer are several style upgrades.

The wheel lineup for the entire model line has been expanded to include 18- to 21-inch wheels, with 18-inch painted aluminum wheels standards on the base model.

Cargo Area Management System-which keeps your goods safely stowed and out of sight as needed-is optional on all trim levels except the Platinum, which offers it standard.
