What design features are offered in the 2018 Ford Explorer?

A remarkable interior presents flowing style and quality materials, engineered with heightened attention to detail, design, and ergonomic comfort and accessibility throughout the three rows of seating. Ford knows your life is active, and your chores need as much help as they can offer. The two bucket seats on the second row provide ample room to access the third row seats, and most controls regarding the seat adjusting, windows, mirrors, and locks have been modernized to electric buttons rather than the previous manual switches. The second row has 40 inches of legroom, and the third row has 32 inches, comfortable even for two adults. Cargo space has also been made easy. In the front, there's an overhead compartment for easily stored and recovered items on the drive. The second row folds 60/40, while the third row folds 50/50, giving access to 21 to 81 cubic feet of cargo capacity. New standard features come mainly for the exterior for the 2018 model year. Five new wheel options are added to the Ford Explorer, four of which are 20-inch designs. A Safe and Smart Package also adds optional driver assist features such as blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warnings, and a rearview camera. Cruise control is a standardly included feature, thankfully, making the long rides smooth and easy to manage.

Tell me about the powertrain options!

Three powertrain options deliver great performance and speed to get you and your family where they need to be on time. All engines come with an automatic six-speed transmission and steering wheel equipped paddle shifters. The base level 290 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine offers an acceptable amount of get up and go that would suit much of the urban adventure your day-to-day typically falls under. The available upgrade on the first two trims, standard on the Limited, is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, able to put out 280 horsepower but increases the torque value from the V6's 255 to 310 pound-feet. This primarily enhances the fuel efficiency, offering the best miles per gallon of any of the powertrain options (19/27 mpg city/highway). Last, available in the Sport and Platinum trim configurations, is the 3.5-liter TiVCT twin turbocharged V6 engine. 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque are designed for the families who want it all, a great around town SUV as well as a vacation hauler. This powerful engine can tow up to 5,000 pounds when equipped with the Trailer Tow Package, supplying your vehicle's setup with Roll Stability Control, Trailer Sway Control, and high performance brakes to maintain trailer control as well as a handling that compares admirably to the unencumbered vehicle. Standard handling systems also include Hill Ascent and Descent Assist, independent front and rear suspensions, optional intelligent four-wheel drive that automatically responds to scenarios where more traction is required, and optional terrain management with specific settings for mud, sand, grass, and gravel.

How are the 2018 Ford Explorer safety and security features?

Family is important to you and to Ford, and the 2018 Explorer is designed to deliver you and your passengers to your destination safely. Standard features include Roll Stability Control, Traction Control, and a surrounding advance airbag setup for front and rear driver and passengers. Front and rear cameras and sensors combine for a near 360-degree awareness of obstacles both visually and auditorily. Curve Control enhance your handling and help you safely manage the angles of the road, decreasing your speed by up to ten miles an hour when sensing the vehicle moving too fast. Other features include the Safe and Smart Package available in higher trims to give you peace of mind with Driver Assist features such as blind spot monitoring, cross path detection alerts, collision mitigation, and brake assist.
