Beauty that’s more than skin-deep.

The power and driving dynamics of Explorer come wrapped in an eye-catching design that boasts authentic comfort and style.

And because it was built for our modern active lives, you can also expect an interior space for the kids,

the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about everything else you may need on the road to adventure.

Redesigned Exterior

The new 2018 Explorer has been purposefully designed to give it a fresh new look. The first thing you’ll notice is its dynamic new grille and distinct front and rear LED signature lighting. Step inside, and you’ll discover a refined interior with rich new colors. Plus, you can choose from five all-new wheel options to suit your style. So whether your adventures take you on- or off-road, Explorer has a presence that demands attention.

Refined Interior

A remarkable interior combines detail, design, carefully selected materials and accessibility, all at your fingertips.

And that’s exactly how we built Explorer.

Explorer Platinum

Take your adventures to a luxurious new level. Just open the twin-panel moonroof, turn up the 500-watt Audio System from Sony® and relax in Platinum’s perforated and quilted premium Nirvana leather seats. Now imagine all of this inside a smart, finely crafted exterior, featuring high-and low-beam LED headlamps to light the way. Just one more thing–it’s all standard.

Explorer Sport

Brandishing the “Explorer” badge on its hood, a unique blackout treatment on the headlamps and taillamps, a quad tip exhaust and 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with painted pockets, this vehicle displays the bold craftsmanship of Explorer Sport. Then, to add a heavy dose of performance, there’s the powerful 3.5L EcoBoost® engine, sport-tuned suspension and Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System.

Signature Lighting

There are other advantages to looking good. LED lighting is more durable and longer-lasting than filament-based systems and up to 50 percent more energy-efficient.

Also helping you to see clearer are Explorer’s fog lamps that help illuminate the road in misty or foggy conditions.

Seating for Up to Seven

The available PowerFold® third-row seat folds flat at the touch of a button for additional cargo room and a level load floor. In the upright position, it comfortably seats two passengers. Standard on Limited, Sport and Platinum.
