Consider the Explorer for Your Growing Family
Consider the Explorer for Your Growing Family
Posted on July 19, 2021
At Reliable Ford in Fergus, we recognize that a lot has changed since we opened our doors in 1940. However, the questions that growing families ask us about our vehicles have remained mostly the same. Families are usually most concerned about interior and cargo space, innovative technologies, and safety features.
We think one of our best models that ticks all the boxes in all these categories is our classic 2021 Ford Explorer. You can’t go wrong with this family-friendly SUV.
Interior and Cargo Space
If you have a family on the go, you need room and lots of it. The 2021 Ford Explorer seats up to seven with all the extra space you need to fit in pointy elbows and knees. It doesn’t skip a beat in providing lots of cargo space.
With five models to choose from, we know that you’ll find lots of seating, wheel, and trim options to design an interior that is uniquely yours.
Whether you’re packing for a weekend away or just trying to get across town for the soccer game, we’ve got room for all your things. Use the PowerFold 50/50 Fold-Flat Rear Seat Backs to make extra space. Both the second- and third-row seats fold flat to make loading and unloading a breeze.
The available Cargo Management System aids in the organization of all those extra items you need to bring along. With pockets and a storage area underneath the floor to help provide space for smaller items like water bottles, soccer balls, or umbrellas, you’ll never have to waste time trying to find those easy-rolling items again! As a standard option with the available Class III Trailer Tow Package, the reversible load floor also provides plastic bedding for those times your favorite canine - or your wet teammates - need a lift!
The backseat crew will be especially pleased to know that they don’t have to wait for someone to let them out. The E-Z Entry Second Row makes for incredibly easy exits and entrances. With the push of just one button, rear-seat passengers can maneuver in or out of the back seat - even if the second-row seats contain a car seat. No problem!
It’s not quite “The Jetsons” yet - but it’s not too far! The Ford Company invests in only the latest and greatest technologies for our vehicles. The 2021 Ford Explorer is no exception.
We have packed as much as we could to make your journey as convenient as possible.
SYNC 3 and an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot keep all your passengers happy. By combining your smartphone and your vehicle, you have access to all your important contacts, playlists, podcasts, and favorite navigation systems.
Available Wireless Charging means you don’t have to remember chargers and cords, who has which one, and where will they all plug in? Just place your device on the pad located in the front of the center console (or below the armrest, depending on the vehicle), and that’s that.
Whether you need a blood-pumping playlist to get your day started or a relaxing vibe after a stressful day, the available B&O Sound System with 14 Speakers by Bang & Olufsen means you won’t miss even one downbeat.
Your safety is always our top priority. With innovative driver-assist features like the Ford Co-Pilot360 Technology suite, we know you will feel confident and assured when you get behind the wheel. While many of these safety features are standard across all our makes and models, it’s important to ask one of our sales team members which ones are standard on the vehicle in which you’re most interested. These features include:
- Blind Spot Information with Cross-Traffic Alert. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, you will be notified of its presence with a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror. You won’t have to ask a passenger, “Am I clear?” ever again. It’s that easy.
Cross-Traffic Alert is beneficial when you’re backing out into a crowded parking lot or down a steep driveway. Sensors on either side of the vehicle detect traffic and let you know when it’s safe to reverse.
- Lane-Keeping System. If you inadvertently leave your detected lane of traffic, our system alerts you to refocus your attention. It keeps up with how many times you leave your lane, too, and gently reminds you that a coffee break or a quick stretch of the legs may be necessary.
- Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control. This is like the cruise control you’re used to - but with a kick! Not only do you set a preferred driving speed, but you also set a distance you’d like to keep between your vehicle and the traffic ahead. Then our system maintains both. How convenient is that?
These are just a few of the many safety features on your Ford Explorer. Ask about all the ways we are helping you stay safe before you drive out of the dealership. We know you’ll be pleasantly surprised and more confident, too!
We know what families are looking for, and we think you’ll find it in the 2021 Ford Explorer. Come see us on Tower Street North and see for yourself - TODAY! You’ll be so glad you did.
