For more than 25 years, the Ford Explorer has remained one of America’s favorite family vehicles. Drivers have grown to love the Explorer’s versatile design. Not only does this SUV excel at hauling passengers, but it is also tough enough to handle an off-road adventure. A 5,000-pound towing capacity sweetens the deal.

To give the 2018 model a more breathtaking appearance, Ford outfitted it with a new front grille. It is now more sophisticated than ever before. When equipped with the new quad-outlet exhaust setup, the new Explorer looks especially powerful. You will also be able to choose from a handful of new paint colors, including Cinnamon Glaze and Platinum Dune Tricoat.


For the 2018 model year, Ford will offer the same impressive engine lineup. With a total output of 290 horsepower, the base V-6 engine will likely remain a popular choice. Meanwhile, the optional 2.3L EcoBoost engine is tuned to deliver superior fuel economy. Drivers can look forward to getting up to 27 mpg. To experience muscle car-like acceleration, step up to the turbocharged V-6 engine. It pumps out a staggering 365 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. A sports-tuned suspension and steering system come standard on the high-performance Sport model. Available as an option, the Intelligent AWD system is a must for traveling in wintry conditions.


On the inside, the 2018 Ford Explorer provides enough space for up to seven passengers. Impressive legroom and outstanding seat comfort give the new Explorer a big advantage over its key rivals. If you need to haul some extra stuff in the back, the power-folding rear seats will make the task a lot easier. You will also appreciate the cabin’s high-quality design. While even the base model has a plush character, heated and ventilated leather seats are featured on the higher trim levels.


The 2018 Ford Explorer comes loaded with a long list of convenient features. While the standard backup camera ensures stress-free parking, Sync voice-control technology helps you to remain focused on the road at all times. Of course, several luxurious options are available. For the first time, the Explorer can be equipped with a 4G wireless modem. It can support up to 10 devices, which enables everyone in your family to easily access the web. Ford’s popular Sync 3 interface and a thunderous Sony sound system will be available as well.


Ford expects the 2018 Explorer to earn a class-leading, five-star safety rating. Whether you are cruising around town or traveling to visit out-of-town family members, everyone will remain protected. A new Safe and Smart package also arrives for 2018. This package includes advanced safety technologies such as lane-keep assist, forward collision warning, and blind-spot monitoring.

The 2018 Ford Explorer’s improvements make it an even better overall family vehicle. Its updated styling and valued-packed trim packages will intrigue plenty of SUV shoppers. To be one of the first people to test drive the new 2018 Explorer, be sure to contact our local Ford dealer.
