Finding competitive car insurance for a Ford Explorer depends on lots of different rating factors such as the mileage of your daily commute, the likelihood of vehicle theft, and your choice of deductibles. Drivers pay around $633 annually to insure their Explorer, but that price is an estimate calculated based on a 50-year-old married male driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
The issue that arises when projecting rates is that it’s very likely that you may not be 50 years old (or even male), possibly single instead of married, or maybe you prefer to not insure for full coverage. Not every driver requires the same auto insurance coverages, so the only real way to find cheap car insurance rates for your Ford is to do a thorough rate comparison.

The information below demonstrates how deductibles can change insurance prices when getting quotes for cheap insurance for a Ford Explorer. The premiums assume a married female driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.
In the chart above, a 40-year-old driver could save $216 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $326 by selecting a $1,000 deductible. Young drivers, such as the 20-year-old example, could possibly save $530 or more just by using higher deductibles.
If you do raise deductibles, it is a good idea to have plenty of money set aside to enable you to pay the extra out-of-pocket expense, which is the primary disadvantage of high deductibles.
Here’s why you should compare rates often

Higher than normal claims can result in higher rates, while a profitable period can result in cheaper Explorer insurance rates.
