2018 Ford Escape
Automatic (6 Speed)
The 2018 Ford Explorer gets mild freashening before its next major redesign. Updates include a new grille and foglights, and quad exhaust tips on models with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Other exterior changes include four new paint options and five wheel choices. The interior gains a 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hotspot. A new Safe and Smart package combines several popular active safety and driver assist tech together.
Three engine options are offered for the 2018 Ford Explorer including a 3.5-liter V-6 base engine making 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Optional engines include turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 with 280 hp and 310 lb-ft or a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 making 365 hp and 350 lb-ft. A six-speed automatic backs all engine options. Front-drive is standard with the 3.5-liter and 2.3-liter, and the all-wheel-drive system is available with the base 3.5-liter and 2.3-liter EcoBoost and standard with 3.5-liter EcoBoost.
The 2018 Explorer is available in five trim levels including the base model, XLT, Limited, Sport, and top-spec Platinum. Standard and available options include cloth or leather seating surfaces, rear auxiliary climate control, 12-speaker Sony premium audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, navigation, a twin-panel moonroof, heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, and more.
With only a mild refresh to the 2018 Explorer, we expect the 2017 Ford Explorers five-star NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) to carry over, as well as the IIHS' GOOD ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength tests and its Marginal rating in the small overlap front test. Available active safety and driver assistance tech with the new Safe and Sound package that includes collision warning and emergency braking, lane keeping, blind-spot warning, cross-traffic warning, adaptive cruise control, auto high beams, and rain-sensing wipers.
