The refreshed 2018 Ford Explorer was revealed last month, with updates to the grille and fog lamps as well as five new wheel choices and four new color options: Burgundy Velvet Tinted Clearcoat, Cinnamon Glaze, Platinum Dune Tricoat, and Blue Metallic.
The new Explorer was just refreshed mid-cycle for the 2016 model year, so the updates to the 2018 model are fairly minor, but it does have several technology updates that will have drivers gunning for the new model. The Explorer will have a 4G LTE hotspot with Wi-Fi connectivity that can support up to 10 devices with a range of 50 feet around the vehicle, and drivers can use it to lock and unlock the vehicle remotely as well as start it with the FordPass phone app.
The biggest addition to the Explorer is the Safe and Smart Package, which includes tons of active safety features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, and more. It will keep the same engine options, which include a 3.5-liter V6, a turbocharged inline-four, and a turbocharged V6.
