The 2018 Ford Explorer

Serving Chattanooga, Nashville, and Dalton, TN

For more than 25 years, the Ford Explorer has remained one of America’s favorite SUVs. You can expect the new model to remain at the top of its class. An abundance of passenger room and smooth driving dynamics make it hard to beat. With the arrival of a 4G Wi-Fi hot spot, the 2018 Explorer has transformed into an even more rewarding family vehicle. You also can’t overlook the new Smart and Safe package, which includes a number of high-tech driving aids.

To bolster the 2018 Explorer’s styling, Ford installed an updated front grille. Meanwhile, quad exhaust tips help give the high-performance Sport model an especially powerful look. You will also love the SUV’s new wheel designs.

Performance

Ford will continue to offer the same engine lineup. With a total output of 290 horsepower, the base V-6 engine is a more than worthy choice. Drivers can use the Explorer’s brute power to tow up to 5,000 pounds. You can also opt for a 2.3L EcoBoost engine, which is tuned to deliver the optimum fuel efficiency. Step up to the turbocharged V-6 engine if you crave sports car-like acceleration. It pushes out a staggering 365 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. The high-powered Explorer jets to 60 mph in a blistering 5.9 seconds. A specially tuned suspension puts the Explorer Sport among the best-handling SUVs in its class. In the event that you decide to travel off the beaten path, the Intelligent 4WD system will provide superior traction.

Interior

Automotive publications such as Edmunds rave about the Explorer’s high-quality interior. It has the craftsmanship of a high-end European model. While even the base model’s cabin looks impressive, leather upholstery gives the Explorer an even more upscale appearance. As always, the 2018 Ford Explorer promises to keep everyone comfortable. Up to seven people can climb aboard. Heated and ventilated front seats are featured on the higher trim levels.
