Although the 2021 Toyota Sequoia has a seating capacity of 8 people while the Ford Explorer can only comfortably seat seven people, the 2021 Explorer makes up for it in its fuel economy ratings and transmission specs. The Ford Explorer boasts sophisticated safety systems such as automated emergency braking and pedestrian recognition, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance, and automatic high lights as part of the standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ package. Other prominent features of the 2021 Ford Explorer include an optional 10.1-inch vertical touchscreen, a 360-degree video system, wireless charging, massaging front seats, and much more.
Owing to its larger size, the Toyota Sequoia has a larger towing capacity of 7,400 lbs. compared to 5,300 lbs. of the Ford SUV. Its fuel tank capacity is also higher than that of the Ford Explorer (26.4 gallons compared to 18.6 gallons). Still, the Ford Explorer has better interior and safety features, as mentioned above. Both SUVs have a sport utility body design with FWD automatic transmission made standard across all trim levels.
Thanks to improved shocks and larger all-terrain tires, the new timberline trim sits 0.8 inches higher than the original Ford Explorer SUV. The 2018 Ford Explorer Timberline, in particular, has a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, making it excellent for tackling muddy roads and rocky paths.
