The Ford Explorer enters the 2021 model year with modest changes and price reductions within trim levels for the U.S. car market
The SUV underwent a full redesign last year. For 2021, the Explorer XLT receives heated seats as standard, an optional heated steering wheel, as well as the Sport Appearance Package available.
The base car costs $33,470, it is $540 less than the previous 2020 model. The XTL trim is $2,925 cheaper, it starts at $35,245.
The Limited trim with AWD is priced at $44,167 for the 2021 model year, while the 2020 Explorer Limited is $5,458 pricier. The Limited hybrid’s price begins at $50,600, or $2,875 less than before.
All-wheel drive is available for the base, XLT, and Limited trim levels at an extra charge. It costs additional $2,000 (under this amount for the Limited).
The range-topping ST and Platinum grades, both with the standard AWD, cost $53,850 and $55,725 for 2021, respectively. In comparison with the 2020 Ford Explorer, prices reduced by $2,135 (ST) and $3,770 (Platinum).
As we can see, the price cuts, except for the entry-level model, are significant.
