2022 Ford Explorer King Ranch

2022 Ford Explorer King Ranch

The King Ranch earns its crown from its combination of packages on lower trims. It takes the ST's V6 engine and sporty digital gauges and combines them with Limited's equipment and the ST's optional premium technology package. The one thing that really makes the King Ranch visibly unique is its interior.
