About the 2018 Ford Explorer

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.

The new-for-2018 Safe and Smart™ package (not available on the base model, optional for the Limited, XLT, and Sport models, and standard on the Platinum) includes cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control, giving you more tech for your money. 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.

This SUV is available in three different drivetrains with multiple seating configuration options, so one of them is sure to match your needs.

Reviews for 2018 Ford Explorer

Overall Rating

4.6 out of 5 (7 reviews)

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.
