Here we have new 2018 Ford Explorer and read about new this one. Sport Utility Vehicles or SUVs are on the most amazing cars ever. This is mostly because of the versatility they offer you and the various associated choices. As expected, they have powerful engines to survive the off road adventures. Thus the SUVs have been very popular to car lovers since the last decade of the previous century. With growing sophistication in design and more safety features, the SUVs dominate the current market and do so rightfully. Among the various car manufacturers, Ford is one that is known to create marvellous Sport Utility Vehicles, one among them being the Ford Explorer.
The Ford Explorer has always been among the most popular and favourite SUVs of all time. As we already know, it is going through a few modifications and will be presented in a new form in 2018. Let us get a view of the changes that we are going to see in the new 2018 Ford Explorer.
The Ford will give a little more retouch to its Explorer model and is going to be available in the Fall. The new design would be built in Illinois at the Chicago Assembly plant like the current model.
There will be changes made in the exterior of the cars, even if it would not be too prominent at the first sight. There will be some tweaks in the front and the rear fascia. The fog lamp assembly as well as the grille will be totally new. Also there will be four tailpipes in the rear. Also five new wheel designs would be made available. Some new colours would also unveil the beauty of this SUV, namely a platinum dune tri-coat, burgundy velvet tinted clear coat, cinnamon glaze and blue metallic.
The real changes being brought to the SUV are in this domain. The SUV would now feature an optional 4G LTE connection and also a Wi-Fi hotspot that would allow 10 devices and up to a maximum of a 50 feet radius. Not only that, this connection would able the owner of the Explorer to lock, unlock or even locate the car using the FordPass app. There are also a lot of new safety features that has been included. There will be blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, rain sensing wipers and automatic high beams. Thus you can see how much the 2018 Ford Explorer is getting this time.
The powertrain from the Explorer would, however, remain unchanged. This is because the car is already far too capable in this domain and there is hardly any in the market that can compete its power. The base model offers a 3.5 litre V6 engine, that would provide with 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. There is a mid range that offers a 2.3 litre turbocharged I4 engine that provides 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The pro model is 3.5 litre turbocharged V6 engine that would give 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

Thus, in totality, the Ford Explorer is not going through any changes in its power and engine. It would still promise the same performance to its drivers. But it is definitely going through some changes in its look and getting a little smarter altogether. Its really going to be a sensation watching the new 2018 Ford Explorer in the market.
