Variety is no longer a luxury within the crossover market. It’s instead the cornerstone upon which decisions lay - with drivers seeking custom performance options and bespoke power. The one-size-fits-all philosophy simply won’t suffice.

Ford agrees - which is why it’s paired the 2018 Explorer with a dynamic engine suite.



According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2018 Explorer delivers superior power - allowing drivers to choose the right engines for their off-roading needs. Unlike its competitors (which include the Honda Pilot and the Nissan Armada), this crossover offers custom performance through:

Standard Engine: 3.5L V6
Horsepower: 290
Torque: 255 lb.-ft.

Secondary Engine: 2.3L Inline Four
Horsepower: 280
Torque: 319 lb.-ft.

Secondary Engine: 3.5L Twin-Turbo V6.
Horsepower: 365
Torque: 350 lb.-ft.

Each Explorer engine yields superior capability - enabling drivers to define their experiences. The standard powerpoint proves best for everyday adventures, emphasizing a steady performance-band; while the inline-four option promotes economy (expect up to 19 MPGs in the city and 27 MPGs on the highway). The twin-turbo strength of the V6 brands it ideal for all-terrain fun, with its towering redline (5,500 RPM) easily accommodating each mile.
