2018 Ford Explorer

Looking for a mid-sized SUV that fits your needs and exceeds your expectations?

When you’re buying an SUV and trying to find the perfect one for you, you can see that that 2018 Ford Explorer and the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe are two great options. They each check a lot of boxes on your must-have list, and you’re probably having trouble deciding between the two.

However, here’s why the 2018 Ford Explorer is the better choice over the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Why Choose the 2018 Ford Explorer Over a 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe


One of the great features of the 2018 Ford Explorer is the large amount of space it has. You can fit seven people in it, plus you’ll have a ton of space for your goods. It comes with three rows of seats with a huge amount of extra room to spare behind the third-row.

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe comes in two models, the two-row and three-row model. The interior is highly focused on affordability and doesn’t compare to the amount of space that you’ll get in the luxurious 2018 Ford Explorer.


The 2018 Ford Explorers have top-notch technology features to make every ride as enjoyable as possible. They come with a navigation system, SiriusXM capabilities, dynamic sound through 12 speakers, bluetooth technology, steering wheel audio controls, push to start, and more. You’ll love riding and driving in the 2018 Ford Explorer with technology that takes it to the next level.

The 2018 Santa Fe comes with features like dual-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, but it has a very basic features list, since it’s overall focus is on affordability.

Cargo room

No longer do you need to rely on a small amount of space to pack your things to go on your trips, the 2018 Ford Explorer has an impressive amount of cargo space to take all of your goods across the city or across the country. On the contrary, the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe is weak in cargo space, with cars.com saying it has only a ‘meager amount of cargo room’.

When you want a mid-sized SUV that can hold both your family and all of the traveling cargo too, look no further than the 2018 Ford Explorer, the best travel SUV in its class.

Gas mileage

One of the most important features of an SUV is its gas mileage, because you are going to be using it for all of your trips and excursions with the family. Plus, SUVs are known to be gas guzzlers, so it’s important to find the diamond in the rough that will be both roomy for the family and won’t drain the bank account with gas costs.

The 2018 Ford Explorer beats the 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe in gas mileage, boasting up to 19 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway, which are great numbers for any mid-sized SUV. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe sits at up to 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. Even though the two are comparable, the 2018 Ford Explorer still saves you more money, when it comes to gas mileage and its value.
