Meet the New 2021 Ford Explorer, the Perfect Crossover for Charlevoix, MI Drivers

Having a car with enough space for you, your family, your pets, and all their gear sounds like an impossible find. However, with the new 2021 Ford Explorer and its third row of seats, you will finally be able to go on all those adventures you planned. While you may be carrying a lot, the Explorer has more than enough power to handle it all. Visit our dealership, just a 20-minute drive from East Jordan, to get a first-hand look at the new Ford Explorer.



With its spacious third row, the 2021 Ford Explorer can accommodate up to seven passengers. That means that drivers from Boyne City to Bellaire can enjoy a comfortable car ride on the way to their next camping trip or during their daily commute. If you need versatility in your cargo space, the Explorer has options to fold down the third row. You can even add a cargo organizer to make packing your belongings, gear, or groceries even easier. Drivers can sit under their two-pane moon roof in the lap of luxury while they drive with options like heated leather seats, eight-way power-adjustable support, and a heated steering wheel.


With the Explorer's extensive technology features, Ford makes sure that drivers feel confident and comfortable in their explorations. With these features, Kewadin drivers can have stress-free trips to the Lakes any weekend they want. Depending on the trim level you choose, these high-tech features include:

  • 10.1-inch LCD Portrait Touchscreen
  • 12-speaker B&O audio system
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Intelligent and adaptive cruise control
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-keeping system
  • And many more

While the new Ford Explorer has options for rear-wheel drive or intelligent all-wheel drive, what's even more impressive is Ford's Terrain Management System. This system allows drivers to choose from seven different modes ranging from Deep Snow/Sand to Trail whenever they need to. Regardless of if you're on a snowy highway or off-roading, you can feel confident that you'll reach your destination safely.


This year, the Ford Explorer has even more options to make your car stand out. With the Explorer's new athletic trim, you can upgrade to 20-inch aluminum wheels painted in a Carbonized Gray and a powerful mesh grille. The Ford Explorer comes with convenient exterior features like automatic high beams and a power liftgate. No matter what trim, you'll be able to choose from a variety of colors to make the Explorer fit you.

Power and Performance

Whether you're looking for something with more speed or fuel efficiency, the 2021 Ford Explorer is sure to impress. The Base, XLT, and Limited trim all come with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that can move up to 300 horsepower. Drivers can opt for a sportier trim with a 3.0-liter V6 engine, moving with options to move up to 365 or 400 horsepower. The new Ford Explorer also has a hybrid option, allowing drivers to pay less at the pump. Its 3.3-liter V6 engine combined with the electric engine can move up to 318 horsepower and tow up to 5,000 pounds. Across the board, all the new Ford Explorer trims pack a lot of power and are capable of bringing you and your cargo wherever you need to go.
