The 2018 Ford Explorer can sit up to seven people. This configuration is standard, but you can also have a six-seat setup if you need more space for cargo. Let’s talk more below about the seating and space of this Ford SUV.
The Explorer can carry up to seven passengers: the driver’s seat is eight-way power-adjustable; the second row features a 60/40 split-fold-flat bench, bucket seats, and console; while the third row has a 50/50 split folding seat with generous passenger space. If you’re craving more space, don’t worry! There is a power folding third-row seat available, and the 50/50 split-folding seat folds flat at the touch of a button. The Explorer’s every trim level includes the option to change from a seven-seat to a six-seat SUV. Having more space for passengers and more space for cargo makes this a versatile vehicle.
Off to your favorite summer destination with your family? A road trip with your friends to the hottest music festival? The Explorer delivers when you need configurable cargo space. With the second and third-row seats in the upright position, you have maximum seating plus 21 cubic feet of cargo space. With just the third-row seats folded, there is 43.8 cubic feet of total storage capacity. With both the second- and third-row seats are folded flat, the Explorer provides up to 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Explorer's base standard system contains the SYNC infotainment interface, a 4.2-inch color display, voice commands, Bluetooth, a USB port, and six speakers. A rearview camera and Ford's MyKey system are also included in every model. Technology upgrades are available for each trim. One available upgrade is the Ford Safe and Smart Package, which includes:
- Rain-sensing wipers
- Auto high-beam headlamps
- BLIS with cross-traffic alert to help you see what’s in your blind spot.
- Lane-Keeping System helps detect and alert you to vehicle drift
- Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with brake support
