Inside, seating for up to seven means nobody gets left behind. The available PowerFold® third-row seat is engineered for versatility. With one button push, the seat folds flat to create a level load floor and open up more cargo room. With all the seats up, you’ve got 21 cubic feet of cargo space. Folding that third row down more than doubles cargo volume to 43.8 cubic feet. And when you’ve really got a lot to bring along, you can fold both seats down for an incredible 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space. There’s even extra storage in the floor for small items.
But that sounds great if you’ve got lots of gear but only one other adventurer. What happens when you’ve got to transport the whole crew and all their stuff? Well then, fill up the camper and hitch it to the back of your 2018 Ford Explorer. When properly equipped, this impressive SUV can tow up to 5,000 lbs. The Class III Trailer Tow Package, required for towing, includes a tow hitch, wiring harness, and engine oil cooler.
A number of advanced features are on hand to help simplify and optimize the towing experience. AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ comes standard, and includes a trailer sway control feature. This feature kicks into gear whenever trailer sway is detected, automatically adjusting engine speed and applying the brakes as needed to counter and correct trailer sway.
We’ve only scratched the surface of what this Ford SUV can do, and just how much fun it is to drive. In their review, Edmunds praised the 2018 Ford Explorer for providing “lots of speed and impressive handling and braking.”
