In the crossover world one name dominates the backroad charts - Jeep. For years this brand has delivered premium all-terrain performance, sending drivers blazing through every obstacle with ease. It’s venerated; it’s celebrated; it’s… about to come in second.

According to Kelley Blue Book, Jeep must surrender the off-road crown - passing it to the 2018 Explorer. This Ford crossover has stolen the HP spotlight from the Cherokee and now reigns as a true class-leader.



Anchored by a 3.5L V6, the 2018 Explorer generates 290 HP (at 6,500 RPM) and 255 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPM). It boasts a six-speed automatic transmission, which delivers a low-range gear set to help drivers reach the redline with ease; and it sails from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.8 seconds. Its athletic chassis features lightweight aluminum paneling to ensure a more fluid ride, and the available AWD proves nimble on the backroads - pairing both a custom-tuned suspension with Curve Control technology (which stabilizes the frame through a series of gyroscopic sensors that automatically adjust tension levels, depending on the platform’s trajectory) .

The 2018 Explorer dominates every byway - dwarfing Jeep’s performance ratios (184 HP and 171 lb.-ft of torque). It now reigns as the ultimate crossover option for Everett families.
