Fuel up and get ready for fun! The 2018 Ford Explorer Sport is the supercharged, juiced-up model of this venerable line of mid-size crossovers, and we couldn’t be more excited to detail its many virtues to you today. Chief among those aforementioned merits: fantastic performance, convenience, and safety features.
Strap yourself in because you’re in for some serious speed. This powerful machine comes packed with a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 365 horses and 350 lb-ft of torque. You’ll be blasting down the roads of Renton and Bellevue! Further, the towing package can be added to make hauling 5,000 pounds a breeze. And because of the EPA-estimated 19 city/27 highway average MPG, you won’t have to worry about the “pinch at the pump.”
The 2018 Explorer Sport is jam-packed with other goodness. The seat cushions are both ventilated and heated for your enjoyment in all forms of weather. Blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert are all included for your safety.
