We have no images at all about the car or the spy shots, so we have to say that it is still unknown for its exterior design. This new SUV is only reported by some reliable sources based on speculations. It is predicted to use the same platform because the fans are not expecting to see drastic changes.

It goes the same for the cabin side. Right now, we only know that the equipment and technology will be upgraded to make it more functional than the previous model. There are some ways they can do such as incorporating full digital dashboard and touch screen display for its media.

Next is about the engine department. It will be different from the previous model because this new generation will be a new SUV with new design as monocoque so there will be no chassis just like the Dodge Durango. Under the bonnet, the new 2018 Ford Explorer might be installed with the V6 EcoBoost engines or the redesigned V8. As we hoped, the success of rear-wheel drive will be possible. There will be many units sold with 4WD which is truly important because it is the way they can meet the demand in the market. As you know, the U.S market has law enforcement that forced the company to represent the four-wheel drive again without losing its powerful performance. We are also in no doubt to say that it might go with hybrid version with the use of plu-in hbrid and 2.0 liter of EcoBoost engine, turbocharging as well as Li-Ion batteries for a reliable and optimum execution.
