Ford Explorer Features & Models

The seven-passenger Explorer provides plenty of choices for Peoria and Phoenix-area drivers. Five well-appointed trim levels are available each with its own character: Explorer, Explorer XLT, Explorer Limited, Explorer Sport and Explorer Platinum.

This year, the SUV offers an available 4G modem with a standard new Wi-Fi, which 2018 Ford Explorer reviews call a good option for those who want to stay connected. The hotspot can support up to 10 devices and works up to 50 feet away from the car. Other highlights include SYNC 3 and SYNC Connect which works with FordPass to give you remote vehicle access. Standard features on the base model are also notable, including the likes of a rearview camera, Bluetooth, the base SYNC system and rear climate controls for your backseat companions.

2018 Ford Explorer Horsepower & Torque

Exploring is made all the more fun with a choice of three peppy engines. The first is a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder that produces 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. For the most power, there's a 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 with new quad exhaust tips; the six-cylinder generates 365 hp and 350 torque to power your adventures. There's also a 3.5L naturally aspirated TiVCT V6 with 290 hp and 255 torque, which falls in the middle on the power scale. When you have a chance to test drive the 2018 Ford Explorer in Peoria, make sure you try out all three engines.
