Five Trims to Choose From

When it comes to options, the new Explorer delivers, as noted by 2018 Ford Explorer reviews. The SUV is offered in base, XLT, Limited, Sport and Platinum trims. Even the base is packed with various amenities to help maximize your drives, including Bluetooth, a six-speaker sound system, a 4.2-inch display screen and a 60/40-split second-row seat for easier storing.

Limited models add leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable pedals and dual-zone automatic climate control. If you're looking for more luxury, we recommend the Platinum, which adds a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, ventilated front seats, heated steering and a 12-speaker Sony audio system.

A Powerful V6

At the bottom of the power pyramid, there's an optional 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque (base and XLT trims). Standard, these models come with a gutsy 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. At the top of the heap, there's a V6 that adds to those numbers, delivering 365 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque.

Every 2018 Ford Explorer in Santa Clara comes with a six-speed automatic. Power is pushed to the Platinum and Sport models' front wheels, while Base, XLT and Limited models can be had in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Towing capacity maxes out at 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Next-Gen Safety

When it comes to safety, the 2018 Explorer doesn't cut any corners. Aside from its high-strength construction, the SUV comes with an army of airbags, antilock brakes and stability control. Also included is a rearview camera, which makes parking jobs of all sorts much easier. Upper models add more gear as standard, including lane keep assist, blind spot alert and front collision warning with emergency braking.
