Here's how much you'll pay for each trim level.
The 2022 edition of the Ford Explorer was unveiled last August with a couple of key adjustments and the addition of the rear-wheel-drive ST option. With this introduction and changes, the entire range was treated to a slight price hike but, just a few months later, the company is raising the price for all trims
Given that the last increase was implemented last November, this would be the second set of price increases for the Explorer range in the space of three months, with models seeing a raise from $175 to $1,070 depending on trim. Because the rear-wheel-drive ST-Line, ST, and Platinum Hybrid, as well as the all-wheel-drive ST, is new to the range, these four options have been left untouched.
The rear and all-wheel drive Limited Hybrid see the smallest increase in price with a $175 jump to $50,280 and $52,280, respectively. This is followed by the Timberline range which has risen by $230 to a listed price of $46,245. If you wish to get into the driver's seat of the Limited model without the hybrid system, be expected to pay $240 more, with prices being listed at $45,495 for the rear-wheel-drive and $47,495 for the all-wheel drive.
The Ford Explorer ST in all-wheel-drive guise will now cost you $245 more with a confirmed price of $49,245. Interestingly, the base-spec model sees a more substantial increase of $320 for both drivetrains. This results in a price of $33,245 for the rear- and $35,245 for the all-wheel-drive option. In a rather drastic jump, the all-wheel-drive Platinum Hybrid now costs $54,115, an increase of $780.
The King Ranch and Platinum options see a notable increase of $1,010 for both rear- and all-wheel drive states leading to price tags that range from $53,610 to $55,740. The biggest increase, however, is accredited to the XLT. This gets a whopping $1,070 premium, and is now priced at $36,145 for the rear-wheel-drive and $38,145 for the all-wheel-drive model.
It's also worth noting that these prices do not include Ford's destination and delivery charge which stays the same at $1,245. Furthermore, we are reminded that a set of subtle changes are implemented to the Ford Explorer range. Included in this is the auto stop-start function now being optional on Base, XLT, Timberline, and Limited units. Paddle shifters are also now only found on Timberline and ST models while the second-row center floor console will no longer be found on any examples.
