Last month, we took the 2018 Ford Explorer Limited on our trip to Sooke, BC (blog post coming soon) and absolutely loved it!

I fell in love with all the space. The optional third row was so nice to have during our trip. It was extremely roomy, fit our family of 5, plus our luggage, Nuna playard and the stroller.

Best part? we still had tons of room. It was a sad day when I had to drive it back.

2018 Ford Explorer Limited Review

We’ve been on the hunt for a new family vehicle for over a year. To be quite honest, change is scary (and sometimes expensive) so we never took the plunge.

However, after a year of cramming 5 people into a Nissan Rogue, I am definitely ready to upgrade to a newer, better and bigger family vehicle.

With that being said, we are taking a closer look at our options and the 2018 Ford Explorer Limited is at the top of the list.

The 2018 Ford Explorer is spacious, safe and looks great. Of course, the model we test drove had all the bells and whistles and I loved all the extra add-ons. But, those can get a bit pricey.

So the “build your own” on their website Ford.ca is a great tool for those on a budget.

Keep scrolling to find out all the features.

Final Thoughts

If you are on the fence on which SUV to purchase or don’t know where to start. I would suggest calling your nearest Ford dealer and taking out the new 2018 Ford Explorer Limited out for a spin.

The features are never-ending and did I mention all the space? 😉

I definitely felt safe driving the Explorer around. The remodel of the Ford Explorer is extremely pleasing to the eye and I’m really happy about all the upgrades they added.
