DESIGN
SIGNATURE LIGHTING

There are other advantages to looking good. LED lighting is more durable and longer-lasting than filament-based systems and up to 50 percent more energy-efficient. Also helping you too see clearer are Explorer’s fog lamps that help illuminate the road in misty or foggy conditions.

REFINEED INTERIOR

A remarkable interior combines detail, design, carefully selected materials and accessibility, all at your fingertips. And that’s exactly how the 2018 Explorer was built.

SEATING FOR UP TO SEVEN

The available PowerFold third-row seat folds flat at the touch of a button for additional cargo room and a level load floor. In the upright position, it comfortably seats two passengers. Standard on Limited, Sport and Platinum.

PERFORMANCE
3.5L ECOBOOST ENGINE

The 3.5L EcoBoost combines turbocharging and direct injection. It generates best-in-class1 365 V6 horsepower plus 350 lb.-ft. of torque. This EcoBoost is standard in the Explorer Sport and Platinum, which also feature standard Intelligent 4WD with the Terrain Management System™plus Hill Descent Control.

TOWING AND TRAILER SWAY CONTROL

Building on AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, the standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control. The result is stability and control, even when towing large loads. When properly equipped the Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs. The Class III Trailer Tow Package, required for towing, is available for the 3.5L TiVCT engine, and comes standard with the 3.5L EcoBoost engine.

CURVE CONTROL

Standard Curve Control will slow you down as much as 10 mph in approximately one second when it senses that you’re going too fast for a particular curve. Employing throttle reduction and four-wheel braking, it’s always active in helping you maintain control around curves. Also, it functions on dry or wet pavement and is particularly useful when you’re entering or exiting freeway off- or on-ramps too fast.
