The Explorer is one of the most popular vehicles in the Ford lineup, especially with drivers in Texas. Ford has taken notice of the Lone Start State’s love for this midsize SUV, and that’s why the brand is introducing the 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition.
This version of the Explorer is named after the legendary King Ranch in South Texas. At a total of 1,225,000 acres, it is the largest ranch in the United States. Here in Alice, Texas, the ranch in question is particularly notable, as our community draws its name from the daughter of the ranch’s founder, Captain Richard King.
So how does the 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition pay homage to this legendary piece of Texan land? For starters, passengers can relax in mahogany Mesa Del Rio perforated leather seats with the King Ranch Running W logo. Mesa Del Rio leather is also used for the center console armrest. The stylish interior also boasts a leather instrument panel and steering wheel with Sapele wood accents and Norias stitching.
High-tech King Ranch features include available multi-contour massage seats, a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio setup, and a 10.1-inch portrait touch screen with voice-activated navigation.
The exterior of the King Ranch Edition features a Stone Gray mesh grille insert, quad chrome exhaust tips, Running W center caps for the 20-inch wheels, and King Ranch badging. A 355-horsepower EcoBoost® engine sits under the hood, delivering up to 5,600 pounds of towing capability.
