There's an old adage that says, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". The 2018 Ford Explorer is one fine example that something great or ain't broke can be made even greater with a few tweaks here and there.

The previous Ford Explorer models were highly successful. In fact, the Explorer has been one of the most well-liked utes since it came out in 1991. As a proof, Autoblog reported that the premiere SUV from Ford has been among the best-selling vehicles in its group. The last time Ford altered something with the Explorer was in 2016 but even then nothing drastic was changed. Now, twenty-seven years later, the Ford Explorer will be getting a bit more tweaking.

The 2018 Ford Explorer will now have a new grille, a new fog lamp assembly, and a new safety suite. The Ford Explorer Sport and Platinum models also get four tailpipes. Those may seem not much but at least it gives the beloved Explorer a tad of a new look.

As CNET reported, the new Ford Explorer will come in four new colors that are perfect for those who are up for a little adventure. The new model is available in blue metallic, burgundy clearcoat, cinnamon glaze, and platinum dune tri-coat. Not only does the ute come in fresh new hues, the wheels also have new designs. In fact, there will be five new wheel designs that enthusiasts can choose from.

Aside from the not-so-drastic changes to its look, the 2018 Ford Explorer also boasts of having a 4G modem with Wi-Fi hotspot embedded in it. The Wi-Fi is capable of emitting a signal as far as 50 feet away and can connect to ten different devices at the same time.

The owners will also have no problem locating their Ford Explorers if they happen to forget where they parked. The SYNC Connect app allows the owners to access a number of features through their smartphones. Such features include locking and unlocking doors, remotely starting the vehicle, checking fuel, oil and battery levels, and locating the vehicle.

Ford also recently unveiled the 2018 version of another one of its most popular vehicles -- the legendary F-150. With the 2018 F-150 and 2018 Explorer, Ford figures to stay among the top of the list of best car makers in the world.
