The real interesting stuff lies within the doors of the vehicle, though. Technology has begun to take a front seat to assist with the need for reactive systems, interconnected devices, and an internet connection. Coming included in the base model, the new Safe and Smart Package has come to the Explorer, and it adds new and improved features onto the active and passive safety systems like: forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers. For those who love the internet, the 2018 Explorer has an available 4G LTE connection with a Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to ten devices from up to fifty feet away. This will also allow owners to lock, unlock, and start your vehicle from the FordPass app.
