2018 Ford Explorer

Learn More About the 2018 Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer has been a top pick for families in the Morehead City area for decades. From its early days as a traditional truck-like SUV, to its current car-based generation, this spacious, three-row family car remains of our favorite Ford models here at Lookout Ford.

For 2018, Ford has left this steadfast model pretty much alone, and that's a good thing. Aside from just a couple little tweaks to both the frontend and backend styling, this new version of the Ford Explorer is almost the same as the previous model years we have known and loved.

The 2018 Ford Explorer

North Carolina families who are considering a 2018 Ford Explorer have their choice of a few different engines and several different trim levels, including:

  • Ford Explorer Base
  • Ford Explorer XLT
  • Ford Explorer Limited
  • Ford Explorer Sport
  • Ford Explorer Platinum

The standard engine for the base and XLT trim levels is a 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, while the Limited gets a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder with 280 horsepower. However, drivers can order the first two trims with the four cylinder if they want, and they can request the Limited with the V6 if they choose.

The top Ford Explorer trims, the Sport and Platinum, receive the most powerful engine yet, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 offering 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

When it comes to features aimed at protecting and entertaining your family, the 2018 Ford Explorer is hard to beat. Not only does it have an optional panoramic sunroof and an available premium audio system, it also has an add-on features package that includes a number of driver assistance features, such as automatic windshield wipers, automatic high beam control, and a blind spot monitor.
