Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I was surprised about the comfort of our Explorer 2018. The car handles great, it does not feel like a 4 cylinder car, it truly pushes out great torque and power. It handles great. It being a 7-seater, fits perfect for my family of 5. We have plenty of space, and the comfort it has, its second to none. I definitely recommend this car and the quality of vehicle CARMAX offers is unrivaled. I'd definitely buy again.

Reviews for Ford Explorer

Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5(556 reviews)

Has anything and everything you can possibly imagine.

The technology is UNREAL, the wipers go on when it starts raining, the bright lights go off on their own when a car is coming toward me, the air conditioned seats, the heated steering wheel, the volume goes down on the radio when I'm in reverse and something is behind me and the sounds goes off all together when the phone rings, the cup holders light up and so does the floor where my feet are and you can change the color too when you want, I could go on and on. I hope it lasts FOREVER!!

- Colleen Merletti, 2013 Ford Explorer

Excellent Ride!

I was surprised about the comfort of our Explorer 2018. The car handles great, it does not feel like a 4 cylinder car, it truly pushes out great torque and power. It handles great. It being a 7-seater, fits perfect for my family of 5. We have plenty of space, and the comfort it has, its second to none. I definitely recommend this car and the quality of vehicle CARMAX offers is unrivaled. I'd definitely buy again.

- Ron Castillo, 2018 Ford Explorer

Explorer Sport is the ultimate daddy family car

- Spacious seating for 7 (or 6 if you get captain seats in the 2nd row). - Excellent acceleration in the Sport trim (twin turbo V6), among the best in class. - Optional SYNC 3 with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. - Blend of aggressive yet conservative styling.
