2018 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Nice and comfy. However, don’t be surprised about poor fuel economy with the V6. Brakes are weak, pick up is acceptable. Utility is great. Great seats for long drive.

2018 Ford Explorer Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Traded in a 2010 Escape with over130,000 miles for a 2018 Exploder sport 4x4 and was on the fence about the purchase to be honest. Kinda skeptical and guarded as the Escape proved itself over and over but 2 kids and their accessories deemed a third row option a requirement. Looked at Volkswagen Atlas to compare. Two months and over 2,000 miles later - only regret is why didn't I buy an exploder sooner?? The drive is effortless, the acceleration on point, each child literally has his own row, wifi hotspot is awesome and no worries when it comes to extreme weather conditions. Gas mileage wasn't expected to be great; didn't buy a Prius for many reasons so knowing that ahead of purchase can't complain. Primary driver is 5'0" tall and can see surprisingly well. Seats accommodate easily. Have had no issues with exhaust or rotten egg smell and to date, no recalls. Being 100% honest with fellow consumers, will trade this in as soon as the Bronco's become available. Other than the Bronco option, would have kept this for another 128,000 miles

2018 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased my Explorer 2 weeks ago and I am really impressed with it. I have gotten better gas mileage that I expected so far. It does have the 3.0 6 cyclinder so if you have a heavy foot..Gas mileage isn't so great. I think the cabin area could be a little better sealed so there's not as much wind/road noise but it is not to bad. I bought the XLT on the lower end so there isn't any navigation to speak of. There could be a couple more USB ports added to make better for passangers. Overall, I am impressed with my new explorer and am happy with my purchase.

I can't believe how much gas this SUV uses! It is nothing compared to what the salesman said. Very disappointing.
