Reviewing crossover SUVs can be tricky business. There are many of them, and they’re all a little bit different, but mostly, they’re all sort of the same. They’ve all got V6 power. They’ve all got four-wheel drive. They’ve all got up to three rows of seating. The latest in connectivity. The most high-tech safety systems on offer until, one day, we’re all zipping around in flying discs. And they’re all pretty good, too. Reader emails come weekly, wondering which crossover SUV is the best. That’s not a question with an answer: some machines are better than others at certain things, but ultimately, you won’t go severely wrong with just about anything on the market today. Another crossover test drive has come and gone. This time around, it was the 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum: Ford’s top-dog Explorer with the big engine, an ultra-ritzy cabin, and an easy shopping experience, since it comes highly loaded and with minimal options. Those looking to spend into the sixties on a full-jam mainstream SUV will likely find the Explorer Platinum a convincing choice – especially where power, interior design, and feature content is concerned.
