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.

Good selection of diesel trucks and nice inventory over all, just wish the sales were a little less pressure free. The salesman called me like 6 times a day. I ended up not buying wouldn't take my trade in.

Great prices for certified pre-owned vehicles that also weren't shipped down from Canada (lots of cautionary tales out there about buying a truck that spent its first winter or two in some remote, snowy, salty, dirt road corner of the frozen North). But Skillman also has a more fair mark-up on CPO's than some other local dealers. They were a little heavy on hard-selling add-ons for my taste.

Friendly, accommodating and did whatever they could to get me into the car I wanted. This is the third car I have bought here, fifth car for our family. Derek Young is an excellent salesperson and Derek Day is amazing in finance. Thank you for another great car buying experience!

Derek Young, great salesman. I talked to him on the phone and explained exactly what I was looking for in a new Sonata. He had a silver one picked out for me when I arrived. In less than two hours, I drove my new Sonata off the lot.

Pre-Owned Ford Explorers


Pre-Owned Explorer InventoryImprovements that Ford and other manufacturers have made in recent years have changed the game for car dealers. On one hand, people are able to drive their vehicles for longer. On the other hand, vehicles that are traded in are normally in better condition than used cars a decade ago. Ray Skillman Ford keeps a robust inventory of pre-owned vehicles for your improved shopping experience.
