Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition Brings Rugged Refinement to SUV
Twenty years ago, Ford brought the unique style and flavor of Texas' famous King Ranch to its vehicle lineup with the introduction of the 2001 Ford F-150 King Ranch pickup. Now Ford introduces a King Ranch version of its 2021 Ford Explorer midsize SUV, and it will embody those same western sensibilities.
Like the F-150 King Ranches that came before it, the new 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch features the liberal use of leather and the familiar King Ranch "Running W" branding.
Ford says the Explorer King Ranch is its response to its customers' desires for a more upscale, refined Explorer interior. Perhaps "refined" isn't the best word to describe the sprawling King Ranch in Texas, a spread that is larger than the state of Rhode Island, but there is no doubt the new Explorer King Ranch lassos a large dollop of the ranch's western heritage.
