The 2021 Ford Explorer in Manheim PA

The 2021 Ford Explorer is a Favorite Among Drivers in Manheim

The 2021 Ford Explorer is the second year of a sixth-generation that began with a major redesign in 2020. This generation offers more room, technology, power, and off-road capability than its predecessors. For this year, Manheim drivers can enjoy a new Sport appearance package on the XLT trim and a few changes in standard and optional features.


One of the reasons why drivers love the Ford Explorer is that it has a reputation for exceptional power and acceleration. Drivers have a choice of engines with the 300-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine or the 400-horsepower turbocharged V6 version. It has a rear-wheel-drive platform that results in improved towing ability and overall handling. The Ford Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds, which is enough for an average camper.

If your travels around East Petersburg include frequent inclement weather or off-road driving, you can get an optional all-wheel-drive on some trims. The Terrain Management System adds extra stability. This system allows you to choose from seven selectable drive modes with the turn of a dial. The Explorer is ready for an adventure with capability ready for snow, sand, ice, towing and hauling, or for fuel-economy on normal roads.


The exterior design of the Ford Explorer has a commanding presence. The black grille and headlight design give it the appearance of a wide stance that is ready for action around Lititz. The contours are aerodynamic and help it hug the road. The sixth-generation Explorer's design is a return from its former, more subdued feel to one that is sportier and ready for action both on the pavement and off. You can choose appearance packages that include Carbonized Gray accents and matching wheels for a striking combination.


Ford is committed to safety, which is why it included some impressive, advanced features like intelligent adaptive cruise control, blind-spot information system, and automatic emergency braking. The lane-keeping system will warn you if you accidentally drift out of your lane. When backing out of a parking space, the rear cross-traffic alert will let you know if a car or pedestrian suddenly crosses your path.

Ford also included automatic high-beam headlamps that will sense oncoming traffic and switch to low-beam headlamps around Elizabethtown. The Ford CoPilot360 system also can recognize street signs so that you will never miss a speed change. It also has available Active Park Assist 2.0 that can help you to maneuver into tight spaces with confidence.


The 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen display has a portrait mode that makes it easier to see navigation directions without scrolling. The Explorer also offers a 12.3-inch instrument panel that you can customize with the information that you want the most. You can customize the instrument panel for an experience with minimal distraction around Lancaster. Additional popular features include:

  • Rear-seat entertainment system
  • Apple Carplay and Android Auto capability
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • USB ports


The Ford Explorer is a three-row mid-size SUV that is roomy and has plenty of cargo space for all of your adventures around Mount Joy. The third-row seats can fold down to create even more room for cargo. It also has 40/20/40 split-folding second-row seats to allow even more options for customizing the interior space. They packed it with available technology and creature comforts. The available dual-pane moonroof offers excellent views for everyone, even those in the back row.
