Getting a family-friendly vehicle has never looked as good as the 2018 Ford Explorer. This SUV offers a sleek style and plenty of family-friendly features that make it a well-rounded family machine.
The 2018 Explorer is available at Tropical Ford in five trim levels: Explorer, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum.
Just because the Explorer is a family vehicle doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to drive. This SUV offers three powertrain options to choose from, each offering a solid ride. The first is the standard 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This set up puts out 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.
For the second engine option, which comes standard on the Limited trim level, you get a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder, which puts out 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This is also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The final engine option is another EcoBoost®, coming standard on the Explorer’s highest trims — Sport and Platinum. This 3.5-liter engine puts out a whopping 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, giving you plenty of power behind the wheel as you cart the kids around town.
The contemporary feel that the Explorer cabin exudes is a refreshing change from the rest of the SUV’s segment. With the ability to seat seven people in its three rows of seating, this Ford isn’t just stylish — it’s practical, too. It has plenty of room, no matter the size of your family or your kid’s soccer team, making it a top choice if you want a people hauler, but minivans aren’t your style.
When it comes to innovative technology, the Explorer puts family first with plenty of features that will keep passengers of all ages entertained when you’re on the go. As you move up the trim levels, you’ll find top-notch offerings like Ford’s SYNC® 3 infotainment system, a Sony® audio system with 12 speakers, and a Wi-Fi® Hotspot, which makes it easy to stay connected on the go.
