Plenty of Options

The new Explorer can hold up to seven or eight passengers, depending on how you equip the SUV. There are five trims available: base, XLT, Limited, Sport and Platinum. Standards include 18-inch wheels, rear climate controls, a 60/40-split second-row seat and an eight-way power drive seat. There's also a 4.2-inch dashboard display screen, Bluetooth and a six-speaker sound system.

More amenities can be had on the top-tier Platinum trim, as noted by 2018 Ford Explorer reviews. It adds a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated steering, leather upholstery and a 12-speaker sound system as standard. Options on the feature-packed model include a rear-entertainment system and power-folding second-row captain's chairs.

Various Engines to Choose From

With three excellent motors to pick from, buyers of the 2018 Ford Explorer near Dallas will have no problem finding the right one for their needs. A 3.5-liter V6 that makes 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque is standard, while a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder or a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 are optional. However, no matter which engine you choose, each comes backed by a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive can be had on both EcoBoost configurations.

Next-Gen Safety Equipment

Aside from offering many outstanding safety systems as standard, all 2018 models also come with a rearview camera, making it easy to back up and park. More technology can be had on the Explorer by opting for the available Safe and Sound package. It comes with collision warning and emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind-spot warning, cross-traffic warning, adaptive cruise control and rain-sensing wipers.
