The rich history of our corner of Virginia evokes many great names of those who discovered, charted, and lived here. Where we could never claim the new 2018 Ford Explorer as the automotive equivalent of such roots, this family-favorite midsize SUV also came from humble beginnings to define the shape of things to come. Today, that manifests as a three-row vehicle with value in choice, and capability with substance that Potomac, MD drivers live for.
The low-beam LED headlights and upright countenance of the modern Ford Explorer doesn't lead the way for the sake of envious looks--as such premium stylings do--but because this is an SUV designed to lead. With the likes of SYNC3 infotainment, available leather upholstery, and even Class II and III tow packages offered on nearly every model, it does so with confidence. Whether you need to tow 5,000 lbs. or cram 80 cubic feet of gear behind the power (and available hands-free) tailgate, the new Ford Explorer may look upscale, but it's not about shirking responsibility.
That continues behind it's proud face, where your choice of three engines offer powerful promises. They are the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 with 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four with 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, and the range-topping 3.5-liter EcoBoost with 365 horses, and 350 lb-ft of twist. All can be equipped with intelligent 4WD, which in turn comes standard with a Terrain Management System. Also, don't be fooled by the cylinder count--Ford's magic involves excellent efficiency and power with less cylinders.
No matter how many chambers in the mill, the new Ford Explorer offers a value-laden features roster with little room to go wrong. Families will find the XLT can be had with either their choice of safety features-- or a bundle with all of them--a panoramic moon roof, leather seating, and more. That's one step up from a base model, and the menu gets more upscale from there. At the top, the likes of high-end leather, full SYNC3 connectivity, and more can be found.
