Explorer Trim Levels

With multiple trim levels to choose from, you'll find that there is a model of the Explorer that matches your needs:

  • Explorer
  • XLT
  • Limited
  • ST
  • King Ranch
  • Platinum

While the Explorer trim comes standard with all the incredible technology and capabilities that make this SUV stand out, each additional trim level has something unique to offer.

The XLT trim has many upgrades to the standard features of the base trim level, such as heated front seats and available ActiveX™ Seating Material. If you're looking for features like leather seating surfaces and second-row heated outboard seats, the Limited trim is made for you. Aside from its enhanced comfort, the Limited trim is also available with a Hybrid powertrain.

For intensely athletic performance, choose the ST trim level and its sport-tuned independent front and rear suspension. This trim even comes with the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine, which is equipped with twin turbocharging to give you up to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

As the highest trim level available, the Platinum trim will give you all kinds of elegant features, such as Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces with accent stitching.

Inside the Ford Explorer

When you want to bring some friends and family along on your road trip, the Explorer has the accommodations you'll need. Inside, you'll have seating for up to seven passengers across three rows.

In addition to the 152.7 cubic feet of passenger volume inside the Explorer, you'll still have up to 18.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear row. Plus, features like the standard 35/30/35 split-folding second row and 50/50 split-folding third row will make it easy for you to reconfigure your cargo and passenger space to match your needs.

Fold both the second and third rows flat to use the maximum available 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space inside the 2021 Explorer.
