With a comprehensive suite of innovative safety technologies, seamless connectivity options, and premium features such as a high-end sound system, the 2018 Explorer turns daily driving into a downright appealing activity.  

Ford Safe & Smart™ Package

The 2018 Explorer's available Ford Safe & Smart™ Package is a suite of state-of-the-art driver-convenience features. The package includes rain-sensing wipers, auto high-beam headlamps, a Blind Spot Information System® with cross-traffic alert, a Lane-Keeping System, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Together, these advanced features keep you a step ahead of potential hazards so you and your family can continue safely on your way.


Equipped with the intuitive SYNC® 3 infotainment system, the 2018 Explorer makes it easy to stay seamlessly connected to all of the music, apps, navigation, and smartphone features that you and your family rely on every day. With a full-color touchscreen and voice-activation technology, SYNC® 3 makes it fast, easy, and fun to stay connected on the go. You can even easily connect and control your smartphone from the center console interface.

Sony Premium Audio

Every outing turns into a memorable experience with the Sony Premium Audio system. This 12-speaker system delivers concert-quality sound and is standard on Explorer Limited and Sport trims. For true audiophiles, the 2018 Explorer can be outfitted with an available Premium 500-Watt Sound system from Sony with Clear Phase and Live Acoustics technology to reduce distortion and enhance your audio experience. No matter which system you opt for, one thing is clear: you'll never have to settle for a boring drive again.
