Although we were expecting a whole new Ford Explorer to start in 2019 and the current one just got refreshed two years ago, SUV sales are warmer than the surface of the sun right now and Ford is not about to leave on the table. As such, Ford Explorer 2018 has received a delicate facelift to maintain its sales until the new model is ready.
2018 Ford Explorer Outside
There are some aesthetic changes for Ford Explorer 2018. You might not be able to say at first, but there are some slight adjustments to the front and back fascia. The grille is new, as is the assembly of the fog lamp. The most powerful engine also receives four exhaust channels. Five new wheel designs are also available. The explorer was already a good-looking conduct, and the changes do not do much to affect it in any way. The 2018 Explorer will also feature four new colors of cinnamon (yum) paint, a tinted burgundy velvet varnish, a platinum trout and a metallic blue.
2018 Ford Explorer Inside
Not many changes in one or the other, with the big news coming in the department “things you can not see”. A new built-in 4G integrated hot spot can support up to 10 devices at a time, and users can connect to the system from 50 feet outside the vehicle. The new Sync Connect feature is also present, allowing people to use vehicle systems using the FordPass smartphone application that can lock, unlock, start and locate the car via a data connection.
