2021 Ford Explorer Configurations

Ford Explorer Configurations

It’s always good to have options: where to go to dinner, what to watch on TV, or where to go for your next vacation. Now, you can have options when configuring your 2021 Ford Explorer, so all your adventures can be uniquely you.

Our team at Sheridan Ford wants to help our friends in Wilmington, New Castle, and Newark, Delaware, understand their options with the 2021 Ford Explorer configurations. From engines to drivetrains to additional packages, we’ll go through it all in this comprehensive overview!


Engines to Help You Explore More

Ford Explorer Engine Specs

With the 2021 Ford Explorer trim levels, you have your choice between three engine options, each one with the power to propel your travels:

Engine Option

Maximum Horsepower

Maximum Torque

2.3L EcoBoost® I-4

300 horsepower

310 lb-ft of torque

3.0L EcoBoost® V6

400 horsepower

415 lb-ft of torque

3.3L Hybrid V6

318 horsepower

322 lb-ft of torque

The 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine and 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine both come with Auto Start-Stop Technology, which shuts off your engine when your vehicle is stopped. This technology has the potential to significantly reduce emissions by reducing idle engine use.

Another environmentally friendly option is the 3.3L Hybrid engine. If you’re looking for power and efficiency together in one engine, all of these choices promise to deliver!


Customize Your Drivetrains

Ford Explorer DrivetrainsWhen you purchase a 2021 Ford Explorer, you’ll also have your choice between two drivetrains for your exploring pleasure:

  • Rear-wheel drive (RWD)
  • Intelligent 4-wheel drive (4WD)

Intelligent 4WD comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine and is an available option with the other two engines, so you can decide which drivetrain is right for you.

Rear-Wheel Drive

Some drivers prefer RWD because they think it gives a superior steering feel and grip around tight corners. If you prefer the traction of RWD, you can choose that drivetrain and have an ultimate experience for on- and off-roading.

Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive

Meant to improve traction and handling, this intelligent system monitors conditions like steering-wheel angle or acceleration. It then automatically adjusts the torque to your wheels to prevent slippage. Your power will be properly distributed to ensure supreme handling as you adventure around.
