Check out the new 2025 Ford Explorer models and compare trims. For the 2025 Explorer, Ford has removed the XLT, Limited, Timberline, and King Ranch trims and added the Active and ST-Line trim lines. 

Ford Explorer enthusiasts rejoice!

The 2025 Explorer gets a major refresh inside and out and while fewer trims are offered, they get beefed up lots of standard features that were only previously available in pricey package options.

The 2025 model year changes start with a stylish exterior design that features more vertical lines, including vertical fog lamps and bolder, larger grilles that will make the 2025 Explorer really stand out. Inside, Explorer is warm, inviting and comfortable, with additional soft-touch features and fewer physical buttons.
