Vehicle Summary

The 2018 Ford Explorer is a solid performing midsize SUV, perfect if you like a large vehicle with ample elbow room and cargo space — a generous 21 cubic feet and 80.7 cubic feet including the seating area. On the Limited, Platinum, Sport, and XLT trims, the 2018 Explorer offers the option of captain chairs that slide and recline which make it easier to get in and out for your third-row passengers.

With a host of updated features like these, it's clear the Ford Explorer has evolved with the times since its debut in the 1991 model year.

Love my Explorer!

Easy to drive, stylish, I can hold more of my 7 grandchildren in it, it holds a lot of stuff when traveling.

Pros

  • Dashboard: Easy to operate and displays a lot of info.
  • Ride and Handling: Smooth ride and easy handling!
  • Cargo Space: Holds what I need for those longer trips and yet adapts for more passengers if need be.

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Getting just over 18 mpg on an average. Not the worst but could be better.
  • Seat Comfort: Leather seats are nice but I keep slipping around, need a seat pad.
  • Weather Versatility: It is black on black so it gets HOT - looks good but lesson learned.
