Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Average Vehicle Review: (4.605 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

4.3 out of 5 (79 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!!

Pros

  • Weather Versatility: The 4 wheel drive for winter
  • Technology and Entertainment: I didn't even know some of these things existed.
  • Styling: It is totally a step above all the other SUV's I saw

- Colleen Merletti, 2013 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.

Pros

  • Power: The Sport and Platinum trims come equipped with a Standard Twin Turbo 3.5L V6 engine, with 365HP and 350lb/ft of torque. Sub 6 second 0-60mph acceleration means most other cars on the road are practically standing still when you pass or merge.
  • Interior Space: Great for my family of 4 and allows me to take my in-laws with room to spare. Fold down the 3rd row and 2nd rows and it basically becomes a truck with a cabin.
  • Technology and Entertainment: The Sport trim is equipped with SYNC 3 standard (Apple Carplay and Android Auto), powered tailgate (with foot sensor), powered 3rd row folding seats, and remote start/stop FOB.

Cons

  • Safety: This vehicle received "Marginal" and "Poor" ratings from from the IIHS for "small front overlap" collision safety. This means if the Explorer is involved in a front-end collision where a quarter or so of the front is hit, it will crumble and put the driver and front passengers at considerable risk of injury.
  • Seat Comfort: The 2nd row seat comfort is rather poor due to the position of the head rest being too far back. There's no tilt, only height adjustment, which means 2nd row passengers are unlikely to ever use the headrest unless like like sitting with their jaw tucked into their neck.
  • Fuel Economy: The car is fun and the twin turbo V6 doesn't do fuel efficiency any favors: we average 16.5 MPG, which is roughly 260 miles per tank.

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.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: it definitely gives great mileage.
  • Cargo Space: Great cargo space. The rear seat stows down and provides lots of
  • Seat Comfort: I love the seat comfort it provides.
