May 25,2022

If you own a 2021 Ford Explorer Platinum, then you probably already know how handy this model is for family adventures. However, it doesn't end with the standard elements. You can add extra parts to make it even better for your next trip. Powered by a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine, it delivers 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. Mated with 4WD, it has a maximum towing capacity capped at 2,540 kg (5,600 lbs). While this is plenty for hauling various attachments, you can make the vehicle even more efficient by adding an enhanced hitch receiver. There are multiple options for this trim level. First is the Trailer Hitch Ball. Measuring 2-inch in diameter, is it designed with a 1-inch shank to easy hookups. Next is the Trailer Hitch Drawbar. This one is a fan favourite, and it features a 2.5-inch rise to connect to heavier attachments like RVs and campers. This SUV is also eligible for various roof rack mounts including the Kayak Carrier and Cargo Box. Both come with locks to secure them to the top of the vehicle.
