Ford possesses various vehicles in its lineup, showcasing their tough built and character - Tremor, Raptor, Bronco, and Badlands are just a few. And now the 2021 Ford Explorer has added a ruggedised model named Timberline. Besides its outdoorsy look, it comes with a standard all-wheel drive, a lifted suspension, all-terrain tires, and more.
You will find the 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline shying from the standard model with its distinct grille, red tow hooks, front and rear skid plates, and 18-inch wheels. The Forged Green colour is also new to this rugged trim level. To enhance its off-roading competencies, Ford has installed a 0.8-inch suspension lift, reorganised springs, Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires, and a Torsen limited-slip rear differential.
According to the company, the Timberline borrows its shocks from the Police Interceptor version of the Explorer. However, here they are tuned for off-roading purposes.
Step inside, and you will find stone mesh dashboard trim, cloth inserts for the seats, and several Timberline logos designed similar to a mountain range. Standard facilities comprise heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a towing package, and so on.
The 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline offers just one engine choice, i.e. a turbocharged 2.3-litre inline-four good for 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. While the tow rating stands at 5300 pounds due to the standard towing package, you can also opt for different other packages to add accessories like rubber floor mats, roof-rack crossbars, etc.
The Timberline will cost you US$47,010 once it hits the dealerships this summer. It will slot between the XLT and Limited trim levels in the lineup.
