Overview of the 2018 Ford Explorer Lease
When Ford introduced the current generation of the Explorer back in 2011, it switched from the Explorer’s traditional body-on-frame construction to a more carlike unibody. In so doing, the Explorer more fully (and smartly) embraced its role as daily family transport, delivering better road manners and much more refinement.
The Explorer is now entering the eighth model year of its current generation, yet it is still competitive. In the meantime, deciding on a three-row crossover SUV has gotten even harder. Today, the Explorer doesn’t have the biggest cargo capacity in its class, and its third-row seat isn’t tremendously spacious.
Three engine options are offered for the 2018 Ford Explorer including a 3.5-liter V-6 base engine making 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Optional engines include turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 with 280 hp and 310 lb-ft or a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 making 365 hp and 350 lb-ft. A six-speed automatic backs all engine options. Front-drive is standard with the 3.5-liter and 2.3-liter, and the automaker’s all-wheel-drive system is available with the base 3.5-liter and 2.3-liter EcoBoost and standard with 3.5-liter EcoBoost.
What’s new for the Ford Explorer in 2018?
The 2018 Ford Explorer gets mild freshening before its next major redesign. Updates include a new grille and fog lights, and quad exhaust tips on models with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Other exterior changes include four new paint options and five wheel choices. The interior gains a 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hotspot. A new Safe and Smart package combines several popular active safety and driver assist tech together.
Should I Lease the 2018 Ford Explorer?
Overall, the 2018 Ford Explorer gets most things right, and we see it as a respectable choice for a three-row midsize SUV.
