Family Classics: The 2021 Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer has been around since the early 1990s. You may remember riding in this car as a kid, and now you’re looking at purchasing one for your own family. That’s the kind of brand loyalty that makes our team at Mohawk Ford in Hamilton proud!

If you remember the Explorer from when you were a kid, you won’t believe how everything’s changed. The 2021 Ford Explorer offers four models to choose from, each of which provide sleek sophistication for folks in motion. With roomy interiors, fun technologies, and lifesaving safety features, you won’t be disappointed.


Our interior is versatile because we know families require flexibility and versatility all day, every day. With comfortable seating for up to seven, there is plenty of room for everything you could need – whether you’re headed out to soccer practice or packing for a weekend getaway.

The available Cargo Management System provides you with extra cubbies and pockets for all those small items that topple and roll. When you need it, you can flip over the reversible load floor for plastic bedding, saving your interior from wet or muddy cargo!

PowerFold 50/50 Fold-Flat Rear Seat Backs means that when you need that extra space in the back, there are no lumps or humps that make packing a problem. You won’t have to break a sweat, either. The available PowerFold feature means there’s no pushing and pulling to get all the pieces where you need them to go – just press a button.


This vehicle is packed to the brim with smart and capable features that prepare you for any adventure. Staying connected is easy with features like SYNC 3 and FordPass Connect.

The in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot means you’re never, ever out of the loop (if you don’t want to be). The benefit of the available wireless charging pad means you don’t have to keep up with endless chords and plugs – just place your items on the charging pad and don’t give “hook-up” a second thought.

What good is an adventure without a rocking playlist? Make sure you’re surrounded by sound with the B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. The 12-speaker system can get you off to a super start or help calm your nerves after a stressful day. You can turn this system up a notch with the 980-watt, 14-speaker system available with the Premium Technology Package. Ask one of our sales team members to show you the difference a little downbeat can make!


Your safety has always been our top priority. With personal safety and security at the forefront of everyone’s mind lately, we have never been more proud of our Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies that provide lifesaving safety features for all makes and models of Ford vehicles. Ask which of these features are available for the model in which you are most interested:

  • BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert. Keep your eyes on the road ahead and let our sensors tell you when you have a vehicle in your blind spot—no more turning and twisting to get a better glimpse. Cross-Traffic works to let you know when you’re in reverse if there is traffic behind you. Perfect for those hard-to-leave parking spaces!
  • Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control. This is souped-up cruise control, for sure. Set your preferred cruising speed and distance between your vehicle and the traffic ahead. Then let us do the rest. We’ll keep you traveling at your desired rate and distance, slowing and even stopping as necessary. You don’t even have to keep your foot on the pedal. We’ve got this!
  • Lane-Keeping System. If you deviate from your indicated lane, our system lets you know – gently – that you are veering off course. This is an excellent reminder for those times that you are momentarily distracted.

Auto High-Beam Headlamps aren’t part of the Ford Co-Pilot360 package, but they’re well worth asking one of our team members about. Sensors detect light levels, and if your driving situation necessitates high-beams, the sensor turns them on automatically. If the area is well-lit or a car is coming from the opposite direction, the high-beams are turned off.
