The 2021 Ford Explorer offers a broad choice of engines, but the 2021 Mazda CX-9 remains a class leader when it comes to handling corners and over-the-road confidence. If that’s not enough, Mazda’s three-row ute tops that with standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control with stop/go, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance, and automatic high beams.
New this year, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 has a standard 10.25-inch central touchscreen built into the starting price, outdoing the Explorer’s standard display by a long shot. Other features standard on the CX-9 include three-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry/ignition, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
