Looking to creating a top, top tier trim to the Explorer, Ford Motor Co. adds the ultra-lux King Ranch trim to the popular SUV’s lineup for 2021.
Previously only available on the F-150, this trim will be both premium and rugged with real wood accents and Mesa Del Rio leather. This new trim celebrates a 20-year collaboration with the south Texas cattle ranch.
“In 1853, Captain Richard King bootstrapped the King Ranch in the harsh landscape of southern Texas until it became a shining example of agricultural and livestock innovation and success,” said Lee Newcombe, Ford Explorer marketing manager. “Ford Explorer families can now enjoy a piece of the King Ranch’s renowned craftsmanship and the multigeneration legacy that still thrives 168 years after its founding.”
So, all those high-end details you’re used to seeing on the F-150 King Ranch will make their way into the midsize SUV. Specifically, features you’ll find will include:
In terms of safety, the King Ranch trim will have Ford’s up-level Co-Pilot360 Assist+ as standard fare.
Ford is really good at listening to its customers, and they wanted a more refined interior for Explorer. This King Ranch trim will certainly do that. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the photo gallery below, and let us know what you think.
