About Ford Explorer

A favorite of American families and the country’s best-selling SUV for nearly three decades, the 7-passenger 2018 Ford Explorer offers a large interior, upscale design and all-wheel drive (AWD). Many advanced tech-based safety systems are available, including active cruise control and a lane-keeping system which vibrates the steering wheel if you drift out of your lane. This year’s updates include available onboard Wi-Fi. Five trim levels are available, base, XLT, Limited, Sport and Platinum, and Ford offers three engines including a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 making 365 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic and front-wheel drive (FWD) are standard. Understated and elegant, some say the new Explorer looks like a Land Rover. Its competition includes the Chevy Traverse, Mazda CX-9, Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.
