The Ford Explorer Doesn't Have a Peer in the Mid-Size SUV Class

The mid-size SUV class isn't one that only has a certain type of car shopper in mind during the design process, which makes it the category of choice for all manner of drivers around Las Vegas, from large families to the outdoorsy type. Room for passengers and cargo, capability on and off the pavement, premium materials, and the newest automotive technology, are just part of what makes these vehicles prepared for whatever task you need to conquer next.

Among this class, the new Ford Explorer is one of the most versatile, exceptional options on the market as it goes a step further than competitors like the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander, which we'll prove to car shoppers from Pahrump to Moapa if they keep reading below!

The Ford Explorer vs. The Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Drivers looking for a passenger and cargo carrier will find that the Ford Explorer has a larger cabin with a third row of seats and greater max cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which only has two rows and seating for five.
  • North Las Vegas car shoppers probably know of the Jeep Grand Cherokee's reputation as an off-road-ready SUV, but the Ford Explorer is no slouch, which its name proves. Its available with Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™, and the 365-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine is a triumph of engineering.
  • The 2018 Ford Explorer scored extremely well in the NHTSA safety tests with five-star ratings in most categories and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating, which is a metric the Jeep Grand Cherokee only earned four stars in.

The Ford Explorer vs. The Honda Pilot

  • Versatility is a key trait of the Ford Explorer, which has a more spacious cabin than the Honda Pilot. This room shows in the amount of leg room, which the Explorer has more of for each of the three rows, and the cargo area behind the third row, which is larger than the Honda Pilot's.
  • The Ford Explorer has three engine options while the Honda Pilot only has one, which, with 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, does not offer the same capability as the 365-horsepower V6 engine of the Ford Explorer that packs 350 pound-feet of torque.
  • Both models offer driver-assist services like adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, and blind spot monitoring, but the Ford Explorer also uses the sensors of these in the Enhanced Active Park Assist system for an easier time getting in and out of parking spots, which the Honda Pilot can't do for you.


The Ford Explorer vs. The Toyota Highlander

  • The spacious cabin of the Ford Explorer is again one of the main advantages it holds over other SUVs as it has more cubic feet of passenger room than the Toyota Highlander, including over four more inches of legroom for the third row and more headroom in each of the three rows, and over seven more cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row than the Highlander.
  • Whether looking at the engines that come standard or the available engines, the Ford Explorer comes out on top in regard to capability as its standard V6 engine, with 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, is similar to the most powerful engine of the Highlander and much more rugged than the 185-horsepower engine that comes standard in the Highlander.
  • No matter where you look, the Ford Explorer has smarter tech than the Toyota Highlander as it offers everything from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for entertainment purposes to Enhanced Active Park Assist and a hands-free rear liftgate for convenience, none of which the Highlander offers.
