2018 Ford Explorer in DeRidder, LA

With plenty of standard and available technology features and a spacious, high-quality cabin, the 2018 Ford Explorer is a great choice for a family SUV. Everyone will love its quiet, smooth ride, and the available turbocharged V6 delivers plenty of power.

The Ford Explorer is available in five trim levels: base, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum.


The Explorer’s base engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.

At the top of the range is a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. All engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the Explorer can tow up to 5,000 pounds.


The Ford Explorer’s exterior styling has not changed much over the past few years, but it still wears it brawny styling well. Clean edges, crisp lines, and nice details on the grille give it a sophisticated look. Higher trim levels gain LED lightning, distinctive trim pieces, and new exhaust ports.


Inside, the Explorer offers seating for up to seven in three rows. The front seats are particularly comfortable and supportive, and drivers will appreciate them on long road trips. These seats are improved even more with available heating, ventilation, and power adjustments. Behind the third row, the Explorer offers 21 cubic feet of space. Fold the second and third rows down and this grows to more than 81 cubic feet.


A rearview camera, traction and stability control, antilock brakes, and airbags all come standard on the Explorer. Also available are numerous advanced safety features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear-seat inflatable seat belts.
