Power and Performance

2018 Ford Explorer offers a choice of powerplants to cater to the efficiency and sport enthusiast alike. Opt for a 280-horsepower, 2.3-liter EcoBoost® if the economical is what you seek. An available 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 balances energetics with the ability to go the distance. The optional turbocharged 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine takes your ride off the grid. Take advantage of an available Class III Trailer Tow Package, and you can haul a trailerful up to 5,000 pounds along with you. Available Intelligent four-wheel drive, a Terrain Management System suited to four different driving conditions, and Hill Descent Control come together to put the capabilities of 2018 Explorer on prominent display.


For a tradition of commitment to drive-time security, look no further than Ford and its prime 2018 Explorer example. AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control make the new Explorer an expert at angling bends on an even keel, while driver-assist features like an optional front 180-degree camera with split-view capability, a BLIS® with cross-traffic alert, and a Lane-Keeping System improve your situational awareness while you navigate. Factor in available elements like rain-sensing wipers and auto high-beam headlamps, and better visibility becomes a matter of course when the going gets tough. You can even remain at a safe distance from other motorists while avoiding the potential for an accident thanks to optional adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and brake support. Optional Enhanced Active Park Assist brings the drive home to your venue, making it easy to slip into that sweet spot.

Interior and Technology

But the 2018 Explorer drive isn't without its readiness to take on passengers and cargo as well as put control at your fingertips for the duration. Loading up is a breeze, with up to 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space available when the SUV's second-row and available PowerFold® third-row seating is folded, as well as in-floor storage. When it's time to access your swag, an available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate makes it convenient. But your drive comes together with the app and vehicle function command afforded by an available voice-activated SYNC® 3 infotainment system. Optional SYNC® Connect tech even dovetails with the FordPass App, so tracking your vehicle's location, remotely starting, locking and unlocking it, checking status and fuel level, and scheduling startups is easier than ever.
