Buying Advice

Last Updated: October 4, 2019

Strong, but Falling Demand: The Ford Explorer is one of the best-selling midsize SUVs through the third quarter of 2019. However, it’s still being outsold by the class sales-leading Jeep Grand Cherokee by about 36 percent. In addition, Explorer sales have dipped by 31 percent this year compared to the same period in 2018.

Above Average Prices: A base Explorer starts at $32,765, which is about $1,900 above the class average. Be careful when climbing trim levels, as a top tier model tips the scales at just over $58,000. The top trims for many competitors in the segment start below $50,000. 

Time to Buy: With the booming popularity of SUVs and crossovers, scoring a great deal on an Explorer may be difficult. If you’re set on the midsize Ford, check out this month’s Ford deals for all the best finance and lease offers. For a lower price, consider the Kia Sorento, the winner of our 2019 Best 3-Row SUV for the Money award, which starts around $6,100 below the Explorer.
