Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Coming soon to a Pepperdine parking lot near you: the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace.

Pros
Gorgeous exterior
True torque vectoring
Planted, confident drive
Efficient interior space
Some bits borrowed from F-Type

Cons
the materials don’t scream luxury
Priced close to the F-Pace
Lagging automatic
Gruff-sounding engine

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The Jaguar E-Pace brings the British brand’s trademark style to the ever-expanding segment of small luxury crossovers. A turbo 2.0-liter inline-four makes 246 hp and has all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Pros
Excellent road manners,
comfortable for the driver plus one.

Cons
Snug back seat; no,
the I-Pace is the electric one.

By: 
caranddriver.com

We recommend the P250 E-Pace SE for its balance between cost and features. This model comes with the base engine, which puts out a respectable 246 horsepower, has standard all-wheel drive, and is packed full of features such as a power tailgate, 14-way power leather seats with memory function, an 11-speaker premium audio system, and a suite of advanced driving and parking aids.

PROS
Ample power from turbocharged four-cylinder engines
Relatively spacious accommodations
Appealing mix of standard and optional luxury features
Striking design from the inside out

CONS
Highest cost of entry in the luxury compact segment
It's the heavyweight of the class at more than 4,000 pounds
Ride quality can be harsh in some configurations with bigger wheels

The 2018 Ford Explorer ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Explorer has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 68 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Large cargo area behind third-row seat
Meaty twin-turbo V6 available
High predicted reliability rating

Cons
Seats aren't as comfy or roomy as some
Thirsty engines
Feels massive to drive

By: 
usnews.com

The Explorer receives only minor changes for 2018, with subtle styling tweaks at the front and rear, an integrated 4G LTE hotspot and revised feature availability.

PROS
Plenty of high-tech features that are easy to use
Optional turbocharged V6 engine delivers plentiful power
Cabin is quiet and comfortable on the highway
Cargo space is generous behind the third row

CONS
Legroom in the third row is subpar
Depending on trim level, feels big and ponderous from behind the wheel

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Ford Explorer has pulled off a graceful transition from clumsy off-roader to genteel family wagon.

Pros
A utility player, in the classic sense
Very good handling
Better fuel economy ratings
Improved infotainment, now with 4G LTE
Lovely Sport tuning

Cons
The EPA’s optimistic with those turbo ratings
Platinum content, platinum prices
Second-row seat needs padding, less tilt
Third-row seat needs more of everything
