Bring Home a New Ford Explorer to Meet Your Outdoorsy Family

The Ford Explorer is a midsize, three-row SUV that's been in the automotive market since the early 1990s. For three decades, the Ford Explorer has been a top choice for Illinois families. It combines the assets of space, comfort, towing capacity, entertainment, and safety into one stylish package. You can introduce your crew to a new 2021 Ford Explorer at Mangold Ford, serving Metamora. The 2021 Explorer represents the second year of the sixth generation of this American-made SUV. Here's what's new:

  • The Ford Explorer XLT gets heated front seats as a standard feature.
  • Top three trims have an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat.
  • Cargo organizer becomes a standard feature in the Explorer Platinum trim level.
  • Heated steering wheel and Sport Appearance package become eligible for XLT.


Are you making your weekly trip to the grocery store? Are you going to take a family road trip? Wherever you're going, you'll rely on 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque that resonate from the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. Rear-wheel drive and a 10-speed automatic transmission keep this standard engine company. The Platinum and ST trim levels upgrade to a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6. With this engine upgrade, you gain an all-wheel-drive system.

Would you like your family's SUV to be able to tow a camper or boat? The 2021 Ford Explorer can haul up to 5,600 pounds (3.0-liter V6 engine) and 5,300 pounds (2.3-liter four-cylinder engine). The available Terrain Management System has these selectable driving modes: Sport, Slippery, Deep Snow/Sand, and Tow/Haul. You can feel the power of the 2021 Explorer during a test drive.


The versatile Ford model has three rows that accommodate up to seven people. If you only need six-person seating, you can swap out the second-row bench seat for captain's chairs. If you're driving alone, you can fold down the back rows to take advantage of 87.8 cubic-feet of cargo capacity. There are several standard and available features that will alter the cabin's comfort. You can see the different combinations in the list of 2021 Ford Explorer trim levels. Ask a product specialist at Mangold Ford about which SUV your family would like best.


Nearly every automaker has a unique safety suite for its vehicles. Ford designed Co-Pilot360 to provide a layer of protection for SUVs like the Ford Explorer. You'll find CoPilot360 and CoPilot360 Assist+ in the 2021 Explorer lineup. The standard suite has forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high beams.

The Ford Explorer near Metamora, IL, has been a mainstay in the SUV segment for almost 30 years. Vehicles don't enjoy that kind of longevity unless they're willing to change with the times. The 2020 Explorer is up to the challenge with a redesign that updates styling, while getting back to its roots.

In addition to the new rear-wheel drive, the 2020 Explorer near El Paso, IL, is also available with Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System. This new system lets you select from various drive modes, including normal, trail, deep snow/sand, slippery, sport, tow/haul, and a new eco mode with a simple turn of a dial. That ensures your Explorer is always ready for the road ahead no matter the conditions.
