Ranked as the #12 Midsize SUV by U.S. News & World Report, the used 2018 Ford Explorer Sport is the perfect way to get a newer vehicle without the high price tag. Practical, comfortable, and spacious, this three-row crossover offers 21 cubic feet of cargo room. This area can be expanded up to 81.7 cubes if needed.
Under the hood rests a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with 4WD and a six-speed automatic transmission, the Explorer has a fuel economy set at 23 mpg combined (19 city/27 highway). With the proper towing package, it can haul 5,000 pounds without breaking a sweat.
The Sport trim level includes firmer suspension for smoother handling on the road. Safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure intervention, and adaptive cruise control help to prevent accidents. Rain-sensing wipers and high beams also come in handy on inclement weather days. Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity enables hands-free calling. It also allows you to listen to your personalized playlists whenever you want.
