Beauty that’s more than skin-deep.

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

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.
2018 Ford Explorer Platinum on the road

Explorer Platinum

From the feel of real wood on the steering wheel to the awe-inspiring look of the digital instrument cluster, this interior truly lives up to the name Platinum. Get out in style and comfort with the unique Nirvana leather with perforated and quilted seats – it’s available in Ceramic and Ebony. And to take your adventures to a new level, just slip behind the leather-wrapped heated wood steering wheel, open wide the dual-panel moonroof and then turn up the 500-watt Audio System from Sony® 14 . They’re all standard.
2018 Ford Explorer Sport driving through the forest

Explorer Sport

Brandishing the “Explorer” badge on its hood, a unique blackout treatment on the headlights and taillights, a quad tip exhaust and 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with painted pockets. It’s not hard to see 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 lighting and up to 50% more energy-efficient. Also helping you to see clearer are Explorer’s fog lamps that help illuminate the roadway in misty or foggy conditions.
