2018 Ford Explorer vs 2018 Dodge Durango

If you're looking for an SUV that is capable working every bit as hard as you do on a day-to-day basis, the 2018 Ford Explorer is the vehicle for you. When properly equipped, the 2018 Explorer is capable of towing a trailer with up to 2,267 kilograms on it! The Class III Trailer-Tow Package that makes all this possible also comes with helpful features that make towing a trailer more convenient than ever before.

When it detects that your trailer is beginning to sway, even in the slightest, it will automatically adjust the engine speed and apply the brakes to the necessary wheels in order to keep your trailer and Explorer under control.

In order to tow all that weight, the 2018 Explorer needs a powerful engine like the available 3.5L EcoBoost®. By combining turbocharging and direct injection technology, this beast living under your hood will be capable of cranking out a best-in-class 365 horsepower, and an exhilarating 350 lb-ft of torque! Before we go on about the 2018 Explorer, let's take a look at how it stacks up against one of its top competitors, the 2018 Dodge Durango.

As you can see, the 2018 Ford Explorer and the 2018 Dodge Durango are very similar in many different ways. One way that they are different from each other, however, is with the availability of the Active Park Assist system. When activated, this system allows your Explorer to virtually park itself! Ultrasonic sensors locate a parking spot that the Explorer will fit inside of, and then while you control the brake pedal, the accelerator, and shift the gears, your Explorer will guide itself into the spot.
