Unmatched Power and Capability

When it comes to SUVs, power matters. You need a ride that's capable of taking you anywhere, and that's exactly what you'll get with the all-new Explorer.

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes standard with the 2.3L I-4 premium gasoline engine producing 300 horsepower, 310 lb.-ft. of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of 5,300 pounds. This power is delivered via a 10-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.

On the other hand, the 2021 Subaru Ascent is not nearly as powerful. Its standard 2.4L H-4 engine is only capable of producing 260 horsepower, 277 lb.-ft. of torque, and a maximum trailer weight capacity of only 2,000 pounds. Transmission-wise, the Ascent only provides an 8-speed CVT.
