America’s all-time best-selling SUV just got even better. Earlier this week, the Ford Motor Company announced three new choices for the 2021 Ford Explorer, including the lower-priced Explorer Enthusiast ST, a better-value rear-wheel drive Explorer Platinum model, and an incredibly efficient Explorer Platinum Hybrid variant.

 

Headlining these three awesome additions to the Explorer lineup is the all-new 2021 Ford Explorer Enthusiast ST edition. Like the original Explorer ST, the Enthusiast ST is the most powerful Explorer ever. The Enthusiast St is built specifically for customers who crave the same spirited performance, but at a lower cost.

 

“The market continues to grow for performance SUVs, and the ST currently accounts for nearly 20 percent of sales,” said Craig Patterson, Ford SUV marketing manager. “With our new Explorer Enthusiast ST, we’ve made this Explorer performance SUV an even better value for more customers to enjoy, while maintaining the same exterior styling and performance – for an uncompromising, exciting ST driving experience.”

 

Featuring much of the same features as it’s predecessor, the Explorer Enthusiast ST starts at a lower MSRP of just $48,750. Despite its lower price, it offers the same specially-tuned 3.0L EcoBoost engine, which makes 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. 

 

A 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability and a sport-tuned suspension enables a top track speed of 143 mph, and a standard Class III Trailer Tow Package provides a maximum towing capacity of a whopping 5,600 pounds.

 

Also new for 2021 is a 3.0L rear-wheel drive Explorer Platinum, which begins at a starting MSRP of $52,480. This new rear-wheel drive option provides customers with a better value, offering the right equipment to the right markets — those where four-wheel drive is not always necessary.

 

For the first time, the 2021 Ford Explorer Platinum is now also available as a hybrid, which begins at $53,085 MSRP. With the 2021 Ford Explorer Platinum Hybrid, the briad Explorer lineup has been further expanded with the inclusion of a full hybrid-electric powertrain, giving customers an even wider variety of choice and fuel efficiency than ever before.
