Under the Hood
The 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline is powered by Ford’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo engine producing 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Standard intelligent 4-wheel drive automatically adjusts torque between the front and rear axles depending on driving conditions. The standard rear Torsen limited-slip differential delivers torque to the wheel with the best available traction. Explorer’s Terrain Management System features seven drive modes including Trail and Deep Snow/Sand. Hill descent control will maintain a set speed between 2 and 12 mph as selected by the driver.
