2021 Ford Explorer Adds Cheaper Enthusiast ST and Platinum Trims, All-New Platinum Hybrid

The best-selling Ford Explorer is about to become even more attractive to Americans, as Ford is introducing a trio of thrifty-yet-indulgent new variants of the iconic SUV for 2021. These new trims effectively lower the starting prices of the hot-selling ST and Platinum variants, and make hybrid power available to the Platinum model for the very first time.

The spiciest of the bunch is the new entry-level 2021 Explorer ST, christened the Explorer Enthusiast ST, which is most of the car the current ST is at a significantly lower price. Under its hood is the same 3.0-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, whose 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque travel down a 10-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. It can pull off zero-to-60 in the mid-fives, run the standing quarter-mile in under 14 seconds, and top out at 143 mph, where its sport suspension will keep it right-side-up better than Explorers of yore.
