Cooper Ford 2021 Ford Explorer

2021 Ford Explorer for Sale in Richfield Springs, NY

One of the original nameplates of the modern SUV era, the Ford Explorer, continues to impress with its bold style, spacious and comfortable accommodations, and robust performance. Over its three-decade (and counting) run, Explorer has garnered a reputation as both a dependable and safe family mover and rugged and versatile adventure machine. And when Ford completely redesigned the venerable three-row utility vehicle in 2020, the experience got even better.

Continuing its sixth generation, the 2021 Explorer rolls into the new model year with a few trim alterations that make many desirable features even more accessible. If you're in the market for a roomy, featured-packed SUV with lots of cargo capacity and standard safety technologies, Cooper Ford invites you to explore what the 2021 Ford Explorer has to offer.


Despite its larger physical footprint, the Ford Explorer delivers quick and confident acceleration for safe merging and highway passing maneuvers. Under the hood, Explorer finds its motivation in a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that generates 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. A new 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels, and four-wheel-drive is optional on any trim. Need to transport more than what fits in the cargo area? Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds when properly equipped.

Accommodations and Utility

The Ford Explorer offers a spacious and refined cabin with attractive style, intuitively arranged controls, abundant accommodations for passengers and cargo. In its standard configuration, Explorer provides comfortable seating for up to seven people. Amsterdam NY families that don't require the additional seatbelt can choose a six-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs. Explorer also offers numerous amenities to enhance the experience, including a standard power liftgate and three-zone automatic climate control and available heated and ventilated seats, leather upholstery, second-row sunshades, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system.

With all seats in use, Explorer retains nearly 20 cubic feet for luggage and groceries. And when you need to prioritize cargo, you can fold the third row for 47.9 cubic feet or both rear rows for 87.8 cubic feet of maximum carrying capacity.


Explorer's standard SYNC 3 infotainment seamlessly integrates essential smartphone apps and functions via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Using steering wheel buttons, voice commands, or the responsive 8-inch (or available 10.1-inch) touchscreen, you'll have intuitive access to hands-free calls and messages, streaming media, maps and directions, traffic data, weather info, and more.

Available Adaptive Cruise Control helps mitigate the stress and fatigue of a tedious commute or long road trip. Leveraging advanced radar and camera technology, this system automatically controls the brake and throttle to maintain a preset distance from leading vehicles up to predetermined speed.

Have you ever had to pass up a prime parking spot because you were  unsure of your parallel parking ability? With Active Park Assist 2.0, you won't have to worry about that again. At the press of a button, the system can determine a suitable parking spot, help you find the ideal starting position, and steer you into the space automatically.

Co-Pilot360 Advances Safety Technology

While attentive driving is always the best way to prevent accidents, it's still nice to have a little assistance. The 2021 Ford Explorer comes standard with the Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced driver aids to augment driver awareness for a safer and more enjoyable drive. Standard technologies include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pre-Collision Assist
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Enjoy Every Drive in a New SUV 

What Ford attempted to do with the EcoSport was give customers a vehicle that offered power and space without sacrificing maneuverability. The company knew how important it was to create a vehicle that could handle the streets of Richfield Springs without much trouble. The precision steering power is part of what gives this vehicle the kind of control we know you want. 

Choose Between Four Ford EcoSport Trim Levels 

Another thing that should be pointed out is that Ford offers four trim levels of this versatile model. There are a few cosmetic differences between the trim levels, but you will have more engine and transmission options. In essence, each trim level gives a little more power, so keep that in mind when looking through our inventory. The vehicle comes with a few vibrant colors that can be applied to any trim level, so be sure to pay attention to that while you look through our inventory. 

Stay Connected With Innovative Auto Technology 

More vehicles are being introduced with all sorts of technological advances, and the EcoSport is no different. The thing we know most customers want are the fun tech specs in each new model, and the EcoSport surprises in many ways. Of course, it comes with a base infotainment center and a full FordPass Connect system. This allows you to access real time traffic information right from your car. Keep in mind that you will need to have your vehicle connected to the Internet to enjoy this feature. 

Interior Style and Comfort 

The EcoSport also gives customers a lot of ways to feel comfortable within the confines of the vehicle while driving through Herkimer. For example, it comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, which is a luxurious feature to touch and offers the added benefit of increasing your grip. It should also be pointed out that the vehicle comes with cloth surfaces that should feel nice to the touch. These are just some of the things you'll be able to enjoy in the interior, but there is more to explore if you take a test drive. 

Stay Safety Forward With Driver-Assist Technologies 

Ford is committed to safety, which is the reason you'll find a number of rear safety features tucked in the Ford EcoSport. For example, the EcoSport comes with blind spot monitoring if you request it, which can help keep you, your passengers, and others safer on the roads of Ilion. No matter how much you try, the blind spot is hard to see, but this device helps with that. You'll also be happy to know that this vehicle can come equipped with cross-traffic alert. Sometimes, it is hard to pay attention to everything while driving, but this sensor system is meant to make driving that much safer. You'll also find that the EcoSport comes with a rear parking sensor that increases your safety.
