Electrical Code changes required that the cord be the 4 wire type and the outlet also be a 4 wire type.
Up until not too long ago, it was permissible to change the cord to a 3 wire type so that it would mate with the 3 wire outlets that had been installed for years. This is no longer allowed. Today, it is the outlet needs to be changed, BUT - and this is a big BUT - your wiring is probably only a 3 conductor type. This means that the entire length of cable between the outlet and the electrical panel must be changed to satisfy the new requirements.
Anyone that tells you that you "all you have to do is change the cord" is WRONG. It not to say that some people still do that today, but it is a violation and more importantly it's a safety hazard.
This may not be a popular answer - but it is correct. Now you know - and it's up to you how you're going to proceed.
