Ford Explorer Makes its 2018 Debut

One of the most coveted SUVs in the nation, the new 2018 Ford Explorer is poised to make a splash in its class once again. A variety of technology, safety and comfort features are offered on the latest version of the Explorer and there is no shortage of customization options with this new release.

Engine Performance and Fuel Economy

The Ford Explorer is powered by three different engine options including the 3.5L TI-VCT V6 Engine, the 3.5L EcoBoost Engine and the 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost Engine. The 3.5L TI-VCT V6 Engine is paired with 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with both intelligent four wheel drive and front-wheel drive available. Base models are rated at up to 17 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the highways for 20 mpg combined.

Five Models

Among the preferences to consider when selecting a new 2018 Explorer is which model to select. With five model options, you can choose from the Explorer, XLT, Limited, Sport and Platinum. Each model builds on the base model with additional added features like Nirvana leather seats and a twin panel roof in the Platinum.

Upgrade Options

A slew of optional upgrades offer you the flexibility to stretch your dollar where you value it most. A hands-free, foot-activated lift gate, twin-panel moon roof and XLT sport appearance package are popular upgrades. Safety upgrades like the Ford safe and smart package and the front 180-degree camera with spit view and washer are also options to consider. The SYNC 3 Communications and Entertainment System is available on all 2018 models and allows a Ford driver to control music, make phone calls and other commands hands-free.
