Bringing Home Baby? There’s Room in the Explorer

Lots of things change when your family begins to grow. You need a vehicle that can safely transport not only all your people, but all their things as well. Going on vacation with children – especially babies – requires a lot more room than it did before.

If you’re looking to stretch out, our Mohawk Ford team recommends that you look no further than the 2021 Ford Explorer. With comfortable spaces in the interior, fun features, and safety innovations that inspire confidence, you will be glad your family expanded into the Explorer.


You’ll find comfortable interiors inside the Explorer and plenty of room in the cargo area to pack all those things you cannot leave behind. With seating for up to seven and seven trim lines to choose from, you’ll find all the comforts and features you need to make travel easy and convenient.

Engineered for an active lifestyle, the Explorer employs PowerFold 50/50 Fold-Flat Rear Seat Backs that make packing for those cross-country (or cross-town) trips much more manageable. At the touch of a button, the second- and third-row seats field entirely flat, providing you with extra cargo space.

Ask about the available Cargo Management System that provides creative storage solutions and organizational help for smaller items that like to tip and topple. Clever storage can be found throughout the Explorer, including the console and the glove box.

With your second- and third-row seats in the upright position, you have maximum seating plus cargo space to haul the essentials. But if you need more room, fold the seats down for up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space available behind the first row.

If you’ve got a back seat crew, they will appreciate the adaptable E-Z Entry Second Row seating. They don’t have to wait in the back for someone to let them out of the car anymore. All they need to do is push the button and the second row tilts forward for easy access. Even if you have a rear-facing child seat secured into the second-row seats, the tilt still works with ease.


If your baby sleeps well during car rides, you’ll love the B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen that can soothe a baby with classical music and keep them asleep. When the baby is at home, you can crank it up and enjoy the booming 980-watt, 14-speaker system that’s available with the Premium Technology Package.

Our available SYNC 3 voice-activated technology offers FordPass Connect with a Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows up to 10 devices to connect at one time up to 50 feet outside the vehicle. Your team can stream, share, and download without any trouble while you travel.

Don’t worry about staying charged! Our available wireless charging pad, conveniently located inside the center console, keeps you ready to go while you’re on the go. No cords or plug-ins required.

When your hands are full, the available Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate is more than just convenient. It’s a necessity. With a simple kick under the back bumper, the liftgate automatically opens, which makes loading and unloading a breeze. If you need a little extra, the liftgate height is adjustable, too.


When you’ve got your family in the car, safety takes on new importance. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Technologies provide a suite of safety features you’re unlikely to see anywhere else on the road. Ford has researched, developed, and innovated the latest and greatest driver-assistance features for options that make a real difference.

Many of these features are standard across all our models. Be sure to ask your sales team member which features are available on the model in which you’re most interested. Safety features include:

  • Blind Spot Information System. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, we alert you by illuminating a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror. It sounds simple, but it keeps your eyes on the road ahead – where they are needed most!
  • Lane-Keeping System. No matter how hard we try, we are sometimes momentarily distracted and veer from our detected traffic lane. When that happens, our system gently alerts you to refocus on the road ahead.
  • Automatic High-Beam Headlamps. You’d not think that headlamps would be a safety feature, but that’s because you’ve never seen ours. Our headlamps detect ambient light and then adjust your high and low beams appropriately. It’s just one more thing you don’t have to think about.

Be sure to ask our sales team to walk you through all the safety features available on the vehicle in which you’re most interested. Safety is always a big deal – but it’s never been as crucial as it is now that you have a family in tow.
