Base Explorers rely on a solid 290-horsepower V-6 and a 6-speed automatic. The combo fares well in ordinary driving, less well when the road gets interesting, and the transmission gets lazy. Turbo-4 Explorers engage more energetically with the world around them, thanks to a low torque peak and paddle controls for the transmission. Twin-turbo V-6 Explorers don’t blow the road off its bed like the Jeep SRT, but substantial passing power is available just a few inches into the gas pedal travel. All Explorers have quick steering, well-damped ride quality, and optional all-wheel drive.

The Explorer’s age reveals itself in its packaging. The floor is high, the second- and third-row seats aren’t well-shaped. Cargo space is fine, especially with those rear rows folded out of the way.

Ford Explorer

The 2018 FORD EXPLORER LIMITED also lets itself down with a “Marginal” crash-test score from the IIHS. A rearview camera comes standard, and Ford now offers forward-collision warnings on most models.

Every 2018 FORD EXPLORER LIMITED comes with power features, Bluetooth, and touchscreen audio.

The most expensive versions, at more than $50,000, get 20-inch wheels, Sony audio, navigation, a power-folding third-row seat, and ventilated leather front seats. The best values lie at the XLT trim level, so long as you opt for the newly available safety gear.


We’ve seen this look before—for eight model years, to be precise—but the FORD EXPLORER LIMITED still has a fundamental appeal.

With only the most minor of visual changes in the 2018 model year, the Ford Explorer still sells the same shape it has since the 2011 model year. It’s long on function, short on freshness. We give it an extra point for its cabin, which raises its score above average to a 6. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

The FORD EXPLORER LIMITED visual approach hasn’t changed for most of this decade. It wears an agreeable collection of crisp corners, clean edges, and nifty textures on its grille and side cladding.

Early 2018 FORD EXPLORER LIMITED had miserable, plasticky interiors, but got better as the SUV groomed itself and took itself upmarket. The current FORD EXPLORER LIMITED makes no attempt to nod to the past—and that’s just fine. The latest cabin has tailored good looks like its Durango and Grand Cherokee rivals, with a slightly more contemporary feel.

Is Ford discontinuing Explorer?

The Ford Explorer fires up its turbos in its most interesting forms, but even the base V-6 acquits itself well.
Ford fits a range of engines to the Explorer SUV, all teamed with a 6-speed automatic, front- or all-wheel drive, and an independent suspension.

It’s no longer a rough-and-tumble utility vehicle. Instead, the Explorer has morphed into a surprisingly entertaining family vehicle with a smidge of off-pavement talent.

We think it’s a 7 for performance. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

There’s just not much torque at low engine speeds, and the transmission’s not programmed to snap off shifts with sport-sedan swiftness.

A 2.3-liter turbo-4 shows up on some midrange Explorers.

It’s also found in the Lincoln lineup.
