It's always exciting at Two Rivers Ford when we start to hear more about the new models making their way to our lot soon, like the new 2018 Ford Explorer. With some changes to its exterior appearance and some rejuvenated technology, this updated SUV will be a fresh new option for buyers in the area.
Even though the Explorer went through a huge redesign in 2016, changes to the design of this SUV will be subtly noticeable. The 2018 Ford Explorer sees some of its tweaks in the exterior design. A new grille design will set this model year apart from the previous years, while four new color choices are set to give buyers more customization options. The Sport trim level will get new quad exhaust tips while the entire lineup of 2018 Explorers will feature new wheel designs.
Inside of the 2018 Ford Explorer, the cabin is mostly the same as its predecessor. However, Ford upgrades the technology offerings in this SUV by making a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot available now in each trim level. That will join features like the SYNC infotainment system.
There are more remarkable updates to be seen in the safety features of the 2018 Ford Explorer. An all-new Safe and Smart Package offers a suite of useful driver assist technologies at a lower price. These safety tools include things like adaptive cruise control, Cross-Traffic Alert, lane-keeping system, and rain-sensing wipers.
The engine lineup will stay the same in the 2018 Ford Explorer, offering a choice between the 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder, the 3.5-liter V6 engine, and the twin-turbocharged V6. These powertrains offer a solid combination of power and efficiency, and suit the Ford Explorer well, whether you’re looking at the 2017 or 2018 model year.
The new 2018 Ford Explorer is expected to be at Two Rivers Ford by this fall.
