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.

More Explorers for Indianapolis to... exploreMore Explorers for Indianapolis to… explore

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.

Went in with an optimistic views while on the lot looking around. But everybody treated me with the upmost respect and not pushy about the process or just tryna sell me anything. Beau did a very good job on explaining things while being very open and personable and I appreciated that. So I would definitely do business with them again and appreciated the good customer service!

The Utter team makes the horror of car buying a pleasure. They listen to and respect the buyer. I needed special consideration which they provided. The website isn’t easy to use. I still prefer people.

I went to Ray Skillman Ford in a panic. My old car's transmission was almost gone and never having bought a car on my own, I had a lot of anxiety. Brent Fischer was a wonderful help and great salesman for me. He took time to find out what I wanted and there was no pressure to buy. Brent answered all my questions and was very patient! Derek Day in the finance dept. was so kind and helpful to work with and made it easy for me. Bill Skillman stopped by to say "Hello" and see that I had everthing I needed. He was very thoughtful! I want to thank the service staff for all their help with the transfer of my old car to the new one. Also, thanks to young David for spending time with me while I was waiting on my new car.I can't say enough about how good it was to receive the attention and care I got from everyone at Ray Skillman Ford and making my car buying experience a pleasure!! You are all amazing! Oh, and I love my new Ford Escape!

I needed a new vehicle since the one I had quit running. I searched for used vehicles near me. I found a credit application online filled it and within minutes I had an approved loan. The company that approved me sent me to Ray Skillman Used Cars. I called and set up an appointment to meet with Jessika Utter. I was supposed to meet on Saturday but didn't find a ride. I talked with a couple of friends and asked them if they would be able to take me. Yes they said, so 8:45 they picked me up and took me to the Greenwood location. I found the Utter team. They showed me a couple of cars. The car I took for test drive is the car I ended up purchasing. Thanks to Jessika Utter for pushing my credit Application to a few banks and got me a GREAT deal. I LOVE my new ride.

I want to thank Johnny and Mike Utterly from the bottom of my heart. I came in looking at a vehicle.. I was upside down in my trade and in a bad loan. Because of their care and expertise I left in a vehicle I love and not only lowered my payment but my interest rate as well! I was so very pleased with my experience . These guys are the best and will see them again when it comes time for another vehicle !

I went from an online inquiry to driving a new car off the lot in a matter hours. Couldn't have asked for a smoother transaction!

Ray Skillman Ford keeps a robust inventory of pre-owned vehicles for your improved shopping experience.
