Ford Explorer Indianapolis
Ray Skillman Auto Group
“Good Enough” is Not Enough
Innovation is what sets the Ford Explorer apart from the competition. You’ll find the widest selection of these in-demand SUVs at Ray Skillman Auto Group in Indianapolis.
Speed + Endurance + Power = Explorer
This is Ford’s most capable Explorer yet, with two potent powertrain options mated to an exceptionally efficient 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2.3L EcoBoost turbocharged engine delivers 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque for speed straight off the line and the endurance to tackle dropping the kids off at school and taking the family on a road trip to the mountains. The 3.0L EcoBoost kicks things up a notch, cranking 415 pound-feet of torque in the 400-horsepower engine. Standard rear-wheel drive offers a more athletic performance and adds roughly 600 pounds of towing capacity. Ford’s Intelligent 4WD and Terrain Management System is available to give you an added feeling of confidence on snowy or unpaved roads.
Add Some Self Care to Your Commute
It’s not always easy to get a family of seven up and out of the house quickly. But once they’re out the door, it’s easier than ever to get them loaded into the Ford Explorer. The E-Z Entry second-row seats slide and fold with the push of a button, so even if you’ve got a child car seat anchored in place, accessing the back seat is a breeze. And once you’ve got everyone loaded, how about a little self-care? The Multicontour seats let you adjust the position for maximum comfort. And the available Active Motion system offers several massage themes that focus on either your lower or upper back, so you stay relaxed and arrive refreshed.
Luck Favors the Prepared
Even the most conscientious driver can use some extra help. With a carload of people and a freeway full of unpredictable drivers, having Ford Co-Pilot 360 at your side gives you additional peace of mind. Co-Pilot 360 includes a rear-view camera, lane-keeping assist, blind spot information, automatic emergency braking, and auto high-beam headlights. All of this (plus additional available driver-assist technology) helps you stay prepared for unpleasant surprises, so they won’t spoil your trip.

See What Our Customers Are Saying
Mike was the greatest car salesman ever. I love my new car & he made sure he did everything to make experience a great one
Went in for an oil change, but it wasn't necessary, so wasn't done. Anthony Barton found a slow leak in my time & fixed it right away. Great service, clean and sparkly work area. Service was great.
JT was very pleasant to work with and made sure the process was smooth and efficient from start to finish. He listened to what I was looking for and kept me up to date with their quickly changing inventory. I would highly recommend asking for him if you are in the market for a new or used car. Excellent service from everyone we encountered at the dealership.
Great customer service. Timely communication. Great vehicle. Nice dealership! Supportive team of employees! Great listeners.
Everyone was nice. Jaylynn was very professional and even stayed late when everyone else left so he could show me the features on my new car.
Everyone was so kind!! I have pretty rough credit and Tim took a chance with me,, I won’t let him down!!!
Good friendly service. No pressure from Noah the sales agent, very clean dealership and drove three hrs. from southern in. to check out vehicle and purchase. Vehicle needed a little paint work so dealership adjusted the price to reflect. I would buy again if dealership had the vehicle i wanted. Good overall experience with dealership.
Patrick Bradford was fantastic! He didn't pull any punches and did not ask me (not even once!) to come in asap. Patrick did not tell me he could get me a car for a lower monthly payment and show much MUCH higher monthly payments when I went in. I understand that salespeople need to sell because that's their livelihood, but Skillman does not make you feel this way. I know this is not Ray Skillman Westside, but Michael Oberty (I think) was the same way at Ray Skillman Southside. They made suggestions as to what I might do ...
The service experience is always professional and courteous. I trust the work being done on my car. The addition of the video inspection, giving me the opportunity to see my car while it’s in the shop is very helpful. The service team went above and beyond expectations, including buffing a scratch on the car at no extra cost.
they are nice people. I enjoyed shopping there.Thanx Nate! and Rick Nickerson! I will buy there again.
Tony May has always been very helpful and on top of things I can always rely on him to take care of an issue I have with my vehicle.
Great experience Very helpful Helped us find just what we wanted at a good price
This is an amazing dealership. Noah was amazing in getting us the truck we wanted. Awesome dealership to work with! Highly recommended!
Helped me get the vehicle that best suited not only my payment range but all the nice features I wanted. Tells you straight up with no BS. Tyler Phillips is the real deal! Highly recommend his services
I enjoy the quickness and the communication that is always provided when I am at this dealership
This is my 2nd purchase from Ray Skillman Ford. Both times were very pleasant experiences and the staff (this time it was Ray Haltom, Jr.) went above and beyond to get me into the car I wanted/needed. I had some very specific needs for a vehicle and they worked their magic to get me into the right one. I appreciate all the assistance and am very happy with my purchase of a 2020 Ecosport.
Justin was very helpful when it came to selecting a car. He was knowledgeable about the vehicle and I never felt pressured to buy.
Efficient and on-time and communication from service department was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the videos sent to me regarding cost estimates and showing the things the mechanic checked out
Eric Alcorn worked very hard to get me taken care of with a vehicle. I would recommend him to anyone needing a new vehicle.
Ed and Andrew made this the best experience I’ve had at a dealership hands down. From start to finish they made everything easy for me to come off the lot with the truck that I wanted. Thank you guys, I love my new ride.
Friendly greeting, clean waiting room, fast service. A quick and easy oil change and tire rotation. I will come back in the future.
Josh Parkinson is the first car salesman who has ever really listened, and heard what I said as far as my requirements for a new car. He is a very personable young man. He was helpful and made certain I was satisfied with my new car.
Great people, great service the got me approved for my car in little to no time.
The dealership is clean Tyler Phillips was great he gave us a test drive help us with the process got us to the finance department we got the suv we wanted. Thank you Tyler we love you.Go Ray Skillman.
Always a great experience when I visit Ray Skillman Ford! Wonderful customer service, competitive with their pricing and solid trade-in values. It has been a long relationship.
Very friendly with great service! I would suggest anyone looking for a car stop and see Brandon. And the service dept. is best I have ever experienced. Clean, friendly, and very detailed.
Knowledgeable, helpful, courteous, respectful and easy to deal with. Will recommend to others and look there first when looking to purchase next vehicle.
Excellent Service!!! Got my New 2022 Ford Escape
I needed to purchase a dependable used car for my son as soon as possible! The sales team really worked with me to achieve my goal! This dealership location is the best. Very professional and efficient. I am very satisfied with the car I purchased for my son. hank you.
We were greeted by Noah and then Drew came over. We had purchased cars before from Drew when he was at a different location and were pleased to see him here. Noah and Drew took very good care of us. We got a good trade in value on our vehicle, and a very good deal on the new Santa Fe. There was not pressure to add on things during finance negotiations, as Dave was very helpful to us. I was surprised that he found a lender that actually had a better rate than my Credit Union. All in all, we ...
I was there for an oil change and found a car I loved. The finance person and salesman did an awesome job of making the deal work. They were amazing
Makayla and Drew were very friendly and great to work with. Making it so easy to find the perfect car!
super high and pro service
wonderful experience buying my first SUV
Hayden was quick to greet my family and I as we pulled into the lot in search of a new car, given that my lease was soon ending.
Another great experience with the staff at Ray Skillman Hyundai. Professional, courteous and worked to solve all of the issues with the vehicle. Good Job. Thank you Deja.
Very courteous and efficient staff.
Awesome people to work with. They know your Hyundai inside and out. Always want to help.
I definitely recommend going to Ray Skillman Avon Hyundai!! they were AMAZING as well as Makayla, she’s the best!! would 10/10 buy another car from her
The sales staff were knowledgeable and great to work with. I wasn’t happy about the market increase n
great communication in all aspects
My husband and I had phoned earlier and set up and appointment to test drive a specific Santa Fe. Sorry to say it was a rainy day, but Noah had the SUV pulled in to the show room and dried off. We were able to "check it out" and then test drive it. Noah was very knowledgeable and answered "all" of my questions. He offered us drinks since our visit extended into the lunch hour. We want to also commend Garrison who walked us through the financial aspect of our purchase. This is the second vehicle ...
We went there on a whim looking for our daughters first car and we met Hayden. He showed us a car for her and she loved it, so we bought it. Then I saw a car, and they went above and beyond to get the deal done for us, I have never seen a dealership do what they did for us. If you need a car, I highly recommend you go visit them!
Taylor was AMAZING from start to finish! My fiancé and I both bought vehicles and she made the process absolutely seamless. Chris in finance was the greatest and very attentive. I am SO happy with our overall experience. We anticipated a stressful day and were ecstatic when we ended up with two vehicles, for a price we loved. 🥰 Would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking!
I usually leave my car and take theirs shuttle home
Very pleased with my recent experience with Ray Skillman North East Mazda! Processes for service were smooth and performed quickly Very friendly and accommodating !
Courteous and easy to deal with. I am very happy with my car. Would go back if i ever needed another car.
Terrance & his partner are excellent workers! very fast & efficient. always a big help as well!
My SA Casey was very professional. He took the time to explain the tech's diagnosis and suggest a course of repair. When the repair was taking longer than estimated he offered use of a courtesy vehicle.
It was fairly fast and easy. They brought the car to my house for the the test drive which was great! It’s always a lengthy process in the dealership signing a deal, but they made it as quick as possible. They even helped me save over 50% a year on my car insurance. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new car.
Extremely please with me recent experience with Ray Skillman NorthEast mazda! Very friendly, and accommodating!
Always get great service experience and advice on keeping my car's equipment working the best it can from Chris Kelly
it was my first visit. they are very quick, friendly and knowledgeable. the video was cool
I am very pleased with the insurance agent at Ray Skillman whom helped me find the best coverage needed. Thanks again for all the help
Excellent salesmanship and financing. Harry and Nate are angels. They took care of everything. Thank you so much.
I loved the video explanation, I had time to watch it before the Service Manager, Casey, talked to me about what needed to be done. It was very thorough, with a checklist of items, some of which I had taken care of and the rest I will have done later in June.
Everyone was awesome and very helpful will be a returning customer made the process very easy
johnny was great and very helpful in getting me into my 2018 ford escape. I absolutely love it. Ray skillman ford truly care about their customers.
I worked with Johnny and Eric. Both were very helpful, no pressure and professional. The finance manager (Derrick) was equally as helpful and pleasant. This was the best car buying experience I have ever had. I would highly recommend them!!
Josh Ahmad and Michael xxxx even Drew just amazingly friendly , honest and funny Ithanks for the help
Always very professional and consistent service on my 2020 Santa Fe.
Very nice dealership! Our salesman Josh was fantastic! We had to wait a while for our car, however that is the case everywhere and was not the dealerships fault.
Lance was very acknowledged by what I wanted and came through very satisfied will definitely go back in the future
The Westside Hyundai has a Great team of people to work with that will take care of you and all your vehicles needs.
GT, Josh, and Chase were great to work with! GT was personable, knowledgeable, and patient with me as I navigated purchasing my first new vehicle. Chase clearly explained financing options which was great. Would recommend this team and dealership. K. F.
I went to another dealer and they tried to trap me. The Kia in the Ray Skillman Westside Auto Mall gave me a better price for a car with fewer miles. I walked in knowing what I wanted but they didn’t try to convince me on another vehicle. They of course helped me make sure that’s what I wanted, but they did not try to dissuade me into another one when I pushed back. ShaKayla was my Sales Consultant and she was amazing! I had to leave the first day that I was in, and she perfectly accommodated ...
Had a great experience with everyone there on my two trips therr
Everyone was nice and they did a great job at a reasonable price. Will continue coming back.
Thanks to Tyler Phillips, the sales person, who assisted me in fulfilling my auto needs. Tyler never once attempted to ell me a car I didn't want. He searched his inventory for several days until he found a car he felt was what I wanted A real pro. I highly recommend him and the entire staff at Ray Skillman Buick dealership.
The mechanic was very knowledgeable and helpful. The waiting room is nice and clean as well as the restroom.
Michael was an absolute joy to work with! The whole process was pretty seamless. The wait for pickup and the additional markup was unfortunate but understood.
Came in on a whim with my husband, walked out with a brand new Santa Fe!! Great experience and very happy with my new ride!
Great customer service all of the time and everyone shows that take care about the customers.
Awesome sales finance and service. Bought a Hyundai Santa Crus from them. 100% in every way.
Welcoming, friendliness, people ever, smiles everywhere, and I was the most important person there, they excell in customer satisfaction
Brought car in for recall part. Called about part on 1/11/22. Never got a call that part was in so called back a few weeks ago. Brought car in and decided to wait for car. Took 3 hours. Was able to enjoy coffee and read my book while I waited. Everyone very nice.
Daniel and Franklin were so nice and worked with me and got me the car I wanted and the payment I could afford !
Took time to hear about my concerns and thoroughly investigated my vehicle to find the issue, which was especially nice after being written off by other dealerships. Quick service, explained the issue well, and gave good advice for what I needed to do going forward. Will definitely go back!!
Kevin was very helpful, in helping me to find the car I wanted ever since I test drove it on the Westside at Ray Skillman's, but they wouldn't deal with me then. But the CX30 was up higher then.
Orion was courteous, a pleasant attitude and very helpful. The service was prompt and no complaints.
The salesmen was amazing. Roodson Edmond arranged and took care of everything. Including getting the car to and from Ziebart on his day off. The staff around Roodson really helped out with it being his day off.
