2018 Ford Explorer in Salem, OH

Explore the New 2018 Ford Explorer Available in Salem


Any parent will tell you. When you have more than one child, it seems as if your family grows exponentially and suddenly you need more of everything in a vehicle. More cargo space for gear, more USB ports for charging devices, and more seats in more rows, so that you never have to hear bickering over space in the backseat of the car again.

Enter the 2018 Ford Explorer we have available at Donnell Ford of Salem. This family-friendly model not only delivers on all of those needs, it also does so much more. It's been a favorite go-to choice for Oregon families for the last couple of decades, and it just keeps getting better all the time.

Ford Explorer Performance and Power

When it comes to powering the 2018 Ford Explorer, the Base and XLT models come nicely equipped with a standard, 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. However, they can be ordered with an optional 280-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder.

When you move up to the Limited level, the standard engine is the turbocharged four-cylinder, and drivers considering that option have the reverse option, and can order the V6 if they choose.

Regardless of which engine you order for those first three trims, the Explorer can be ordered in either front-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive.

Now, when it comes to the top two trims, those come standard with the most powerful Explorer engine - a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is also standard for these two models.

Best of all though, if you have a camper or a family boat to tow along, the Explorer can manage the job. It has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Plus, it has interior cargo space to accommodate all of your gear, too. A deep well behind the third row can hold a lot of stuff, and folding down both rear rows increases capacity to more than 81 cubic feet.

The 2018 Ford Explorer

Years ago, our Ford Explorer was a rugged, truck-based SUV with three rows. Nowadays, its frame is based on a car, making it easier to drive and to park, but not sacrificing any of its SUV quality, comfort, or performance. It offers a quieter ride than you would expect from a large SUV crossover, even when travelling at full throttle at highway speeds.

Our 2018 Ford Explorer is  available in five trim levels, with a range of powertrains available depending on the trim level you choose. The trim options include:

  • 2018 Ford Explorer Base
  • 2018 Ford Explorer XLT
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Limited
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Sport
  • 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum

Ford Explorer Technology

The 2018 Ford Explorer also offers drivers an incredible amount of in-vehicle technology, making life easier with convenience features you'll wonder how you lived without. The available SYNC Connect system from Ford equips eligible Explorer models with the FordPass, which can help you track your vehicle's location, and gives you remote access to a number of features, including engine start, and locking and unlocking.
