It’s the age of the crossover - with every chart dominated by all-wheel power and seven-passenger styling. Drivers demand bigger, better, more; and they reward brands for their efforts by flocking to dealerships.

The rise of the 2018 Explorer, therefore, is to be expected.



According to the NW Times, Ford’s venerable crossover has secured strong sales in Tacoma and beyond - with 21,020 units tallied in March. This represents a 3.9% year-to-year growth (in 2017 the platform earned 20,232 units) and helped to bolster the Big Blue Oval’s overall success, with approximately 250,000 vehicles sold across every vertical.

Why are drivers seeking out the 2018 Explorer? We believe it’s the class-leading performance - with this massive crossover (198-inches long, 79-inches wide, and 70-inches high) delivering EcoBoost capability. Beneath its hood sits a 3.5L engine. This pairs direct-injection functionality with turbocharged power, yielding 365 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque. A six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission offers smooth handling, while gas-pressurized twin-tube shocks deliver a balanced ride on every terrain.

This platform can achieve a 0 to 60 run of just 5.8-seconds - branding it a true off-road beast - and drivers can take advantage of a 122 MPH ratio with every press of the pedal.
