2021 Ford Explorer Timberline – The most off-road-capable Explorer. Ford already has many names meant to indicate a rugged attitude—Tremor, Raptor, Bronco, Badlands—and the 2021 Ford Explorer is adding another to that list with its new Timberline trim level. This model includes a few mechanical upgrades and an outdoorsy appearance, with standard all-wheel drive, a lifted suspension, and all-terrain tires, among other features.

Looks-wise, the Timberline has a different grille, red tow hooks, front and rear skid plates, and 18-inch wheels. It’s also offered in a new Forged Green color, pictured here. There’s a bit of extra off-road capability in play thanks to the 0.8-inch suspension lift, retuned springs, Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires, and a Torsen limited-slip rear differential. Ford says the Timberline has the same upgraded shocks as the Police Interceptor version of the Explorer, but with different tuning meant for off-road use.

The interior features stone mesh dashboard trim, cloth inserts for the seats, and various Timberline logos that are shaped like a mountain range. Standard features include heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Explorer Timberline is only offered with the SUV’s base engine, a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four with 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. A towing package comes standard and Ford claims a tow rating of 5300 pounds. Various outfitter packages will be available and include accessories such as rubber floor mats and roof-rack crossbars.

With a starting price of $47,010, the Timberline fits in price-wise between all-wheel-drive versions of the XLT and Limited models within the Explorer lineup. It’ll reach dealerships in the U.S. this summer.
