2018 Ford Explorer

Longtime Family-Favorite

Ford Explorer is Ready for 2018

The Ford Explorer has long been a go-to choice for Kansas City families looking for a spacious, three-row SUV. Now, with the 2018 version arriving here at Gary Crossley Ford, it's clear that this great model isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

2018 Ford Explorer

For 2018, the Ford Explorer is available in your choice of trim levels, with three different engines as options. The current list of trims includes:

  • 2018 Ford Explorer Base
  • 2018 Ford Explorer XLT
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Limited
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Sport
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum

A standard 3.5-liter V6 engine with 290 horsepower is standard for the base and XLT models, although there is an optional 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 280 horsepower that can be ordered instead.

Once you get to the Limited model, the engine options reverse, with the four-cylinder option standard and the V6 optional.

Finally, the top two trims, Sport and Platinum, come equipped with a more-powerful, 364-horsepower, turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine.

When it comes to loading their vehicles with terrific amenities and features, Ford never disappoints. Every 2018 Explorer comes with a long list of standard features that includes a rearview camera, and Ford's SYNC with voice controls.

Plus, there are many advanced safety features to be on the lookout for, including:
