You can’t build that level of performance without giving your customers what they want. Read on and see why Ray Skillman Ford is different… and better.

Ray Skillman has YOUR Explorer


A quarter-century on topA quarter-century on top

Being a top seller usually means one of two things. Either a vehicle is priced well below the competition or it simply has higher levels of quality. The Ford Explorer is the rare combination of the two. It excels in all the right ways compared to other similar SUVs, but it’s priced well below the comparable “luxury” models that don’t really offer more of anything other than cost.

Ray Skillman Ford shares these qualities with the Explorer. We’ve been embedded in Indianapolis for so long because we price our vehicles transparently and we treat every person who comes to our store with the utmost respect you deserve. We may not sell a vehicle every two minutes like the Explorer has done for a quarter century, but we’ve done well for ourselves and for the people in or around Indianapolis.

How a vehicle is configured can determine a lot for the driver and passengers. We all have different things that make us comfortable. We all have different preferences and needs. That’s why the new Ford Explorer offers car shoppers a multitude of colors, trim levels, and options to mix and match.

The challenge for dealers is having the right Explorer to match those needs. Ray Skillman Ford always maintains one of the highest levels of new Explorer inventory in this entire region of the country. At the end of the day, you’re not interested in finding a few Explorers you’d be willing to buy. You want the one Explorer that meets all of your needs. With our huge inventory, your chances of finding that perfect fit is strong. That’s how you win by checking out Ray Skillman Ford first.

The $100,000 SUV (starting at $31.660)The $100,000 SUV (starting at $31,660)

There are dozens of SUVs that are more expensive than the Ford Explorer. We won’t win any prizes for overpricing our vehicles, but as a wise man once said regarding the Explorer, “You can find a more expensive SUV, but you won’t find a better one.”

This is one of the reasons we love reading reviews. They give us insight from real-world drivers about what makes the Explorer superior to other similar vehicles. The only thing we generally read more than reviews of vehicles are reviews of our dealership itself. Below, you’ll find the most recent reviews. We’re proud of how we do business and we have no qualms about displaying them for people like you to read. Before you get to those, check out what Bloomberg’s Hannah Elliott said about her Explorer experience.


Ford Explorer Hannah Elliott Quote

– Hannah Elliott, Bloomberg




The quintessential sports utilityThe quintessential sports utility

quin·tes·sen·tial – adjective – representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class.

There’s no better word to describe what the Explorer means to the SUV segment than “quintessential.” It set the bar very high and has never looked back.

Over the decades, the concept behind a “sports utility” has changed. Many are no longer the rugged vehicles that can go anywhere. Today’s class of SUVs have become glorified minivans with a couple of notable exceptions. The Explorer is one of those which is why it remains true to its label as the quintessential SUV. Anyone can slap four doors on a truck and replace the bed with seating, but only Ford gets what it really means to be a comfortable and efficient sports utility vehicle.

I would just like to say that Joe Marcello was a wonderful salesman and very helpful. Buying a new car can be a long process but he made the whole ordeal pleasant I would completely recommend asking for him if you are looking into buying a new vehicle!

I want to say that Darla Pieper is an amazing Car Salesperson and Ray Skillman Hyundai is a terrific place to buy a car! This is the second vehicle she has helped me with over the years. She has also helped out two of my friends in their search for the correct vehicle. I called her and explained what type of vehicle I thought I needed and that I needed something soon. We talked about gas mileage, the type of driving I was going to do, the price, and payment I could live with. With that information, she went on a search. Within a day she called me, and indicated that she had found a car that would work within my parameters. When I arrived, she explained she had found 2 vehicles with similar price and, but one was the 2.0 litre engine that had the pep I would need to be safer with my interstate driving and that is what I ended up purchasing. This car was in impeccable condition, like it had been driven off the show room floor. The process was completed in one short evening and I drove away with my my new 2017 Hyundai Elantra! She and the Finance Manager Josh Owen made this a very pleasurable experience!
