One of the most popular full-size sport utility vehicles (SUV) in Orlando FL is Ford’s Explorer. A trusted icon in the sport utility class, the 2018 model delivers all the reliability of its predecessors along with some serious upgrades.
The new Explorer is available in five different models: Explorer, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum. There are three different engines (some dependent on model type), and performance varies accordingly. The 3.5 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 puts out 290 horsepower (hp) and 255 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. There are two EcoBoost options: the 2.3 L EcoBoost I-4 (280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque) and the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 (365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque). The new Explorer is a capable hauler, and with either the Class II Trailer Tow Prep or Class III Trailer Tow packages equipped, you will be able to pull up to 5000 lbs.
Speaking of towing, there are a number of included features that can make this practice safer and easier on your end of the equation. With the rear-view camera, which comes standard, you will be able to keep a close eye on what you are pulling. The trailer sway control system automatically senses when the trailer begins to sway and will apply braking and adjust the engine’s speed in order to even things out.
With plenty of cargo space and seating room, the 2018 Explorer is the ideal vehicle when you and your family or friends want to take a road trip and explore beyond Orlando’s city limits. You can easily seat seven and still have 21 cubic feet of cargo space. However, if you are short on passengers and heavy on luggage, both the second and third rows of seats fold down flat for additional cargo room. With both passenger seat rows folded down, you will get 81.7 cubic feet of space. With only the third row folded down, you will have 43.9 cubic feet of space. With the seating configuration being so versatile, it is a simple matter to quickly raise or lower the seats to accommodate either passengers or cargo.
No matter what type of vehicle you drive, safety should always be paramount. To that end, the Explorer is the smart choice. The AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control system comes standard, and works by detecting any wheel slippage and modifying engine torque in order to let you keep control. An adaptive cruise control system lets you set the distance you want to maintain between you and the vehicle in front of you and if that car slows down, the system automatically adjusts your own travelling speed to prevent any chance of a collision. The Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) with Terrain Management system lets you seamlessly shift into one of four different modes in order to match the current terrain. With the Hill Descent Control feature, you will be able to sustain the same speed while going downhill.
Having 10 exterior and three interior color options to choose from means that you can personalize your Explorer just the way you want it. With options like real wood inlay, a heated steering wheel, second row bucket seats, and multi-contoured front seats, you can ensure that you are always driving in absolute comfort. The available 8-inch color LCD touchscreen in the center stack will give you convenient control over features like SYNC 3, 911 Assist, and AppLink. The Audio System from Sony with Clear Phase and Live Acoustics and HD Radio (with a 12-speaker setup) means you can listen to whatever you want in the highest quality.
The 2018 Explorer is easily the best in its class. From this perspective, it makes plenty of sense for Greenway Ford to show this SUV to anyone looking for both utility and versatility. Not every SUV can tow, store, and perform, but Ford has made sure the 2018 Explorer can do it all.
