The Ford Explorer, America’s all-time best-selling SUV*, adds the first-ever King Ranch Edition to its packages. This King Ranch Edition Explorer gives midsize SUV customers a rugged, premium appearance with uncompromising quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity of the iconic Texas ranch.
 
“In 1853, Captain Richard King bootstrapped the King Ranch in the harsh landscape of southern Texas until it became a shining example of agricultural and livestock innovation and success,” said Lee Newcombe, Ford Explorer marketing manager. “Ford Explorer families can now enjoy a piece of the King Ranch’s renowned craftsmanship and the multigeneration legacy that still thrives 168 years after its founding.”
 
The Explorer King Ranch will now deliver with; 
  • Mahogany-colored Mesa Del Rio leather seats
  • Perforated front and second row seats
  • King Ranch Running W logo
  • Mesa Del Rio leather armrest and King Ranch logo insert
  • Leather door trim rollovers
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel 
  • Norias Stitching and a Sapele wood insert 
“Introducing King Ranch’s specialty leather, genuine wood, crafted details and signature colors to Ford Explorer elevates the SUV’s brand,” said Janet Seymour, Ford color and materials manager. “The warm, earthy Norias colorway, natural open pore wood appliqués and rope perforation design on the seats are just a couple ways we were able to bring the King Ranch lifestyle to a whole new group of customers.”
