If I have proof of ownership, can a locksmith make a new key for my Ford Explorer?

If I don't have a copy of the key, can a locksmith make a new one?

“Yes, an automotive locksmith can make you a new key if you can provide them with the following information:
  • Proof of ownership
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • make and model of the vehicle
Often, using a locksmith will be cheaper than going directly to the dealer. Unless your vehicle is under warranty, it can be incredibly expensive to have service done at a dealership.
Many locksmiths are now mobile, but be sure to get pricing upfront. Some locksmiths will charge a low rate but add additional fees once they perform the service.”
