When two icons meet, big things happen. You need only look at the first-ever 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch, which combines the might of the iconic Texas ranch and America’s bestselling SUV of all time.*
A longtime staple of the F-Series and Expedition lineups, the King Ranch trim is all about Texas-sized style. The new Explorer King Ranch is distinct from other models thanks to its Stone Gray-painted mesh grille insert and massive 20-inch aluminum wheels with the iconic Running W logo. Inside, you’ll find luxurious upgrades like Mesa Del Rio perforated leather seating, Sapele wood appliques, and extended leather with contrast stitching.
“Introducing King Ranch’s specialty leather, genuine wood, crafted details, and signature colors to Ford Explorer elevates the SUV’s brand,” said Janet Seymour, Ford color and materials manager. “The warm, earthy Norias colorway, natural open-pore wood appliqués, and rope perforation design on the seats are just a couple ways we were able to bring the King Ranch lifestyle to a whole new group of customers.”
Because the Explorer is all about style and substance, the King Ranch packs some serious power with its standard 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 and Class III Trailer Tow Package. Ford also lets you upgrade your experience with the available Premium Technology Package, which adds must-have features like multi-contour seats with active motion massage functionality and a 10.1-inch portrait touch screen.
The new 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch is one of the most recent additions to the iconic three-row SUV’s lineup. It joins new variants like the Explorer Enthusiast ST, a rear-wheel-drive version of the Explorer Platinum, and the new Explorer Platinum Hybrid. You can find them all right here at Shults Ford South in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
