2018 BMW X6 vs 2018 Ford Explorer near Crown Point, IN

2018 BMW X6 vs 2018 Ford Explorer near Crown Point, IN2018 BMW X6 xDrive50i shown in Dark Olive Metallic with optional equipment.

As the world of full-size SUVs grows, the 2018 BMW X6 continues to be the right choice for you. We put this state-of-the-art vehicle up against the 2018 Ford Explorer, so you can see exactly what we’re talking about. If you desire to speak with one of our friendly staff members here at BMW of Schererville, please feel free to contact us at 800-860-3545. We look forward to chatting with you!

Before we talk about anything else, let’s take a minute to examine the exterior features of these two vehicles. The stunning 19-inch Y-Spoke light alloy wheels come standard on the X6 that will impress all of your co-workers as you drive away from the office. While larger wheels are available for the Explorer, you’ll have to fork out the extra money to get them, because this vehicle only comes standard with the smaller 18-inch wheels. In addition to that, the X6 makes sure that you always have the clearest view of the road ahead with its standard rain-sensing windshield wipers that activate when rain or debris hits the windshield. This is an available feature on the Explorer, but you’ll have to spend some extra green for that kind of convenience.

Now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of the differences in performance between the 2018 X6 and the 2018 Explorer! The impressive 3.0L Twin Power turbocharged 6-cylinder powerhouse comes standard in the X6, and puts out a thrilling 300-hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Unfortunately, the standard 3.5L V6 engine in the Explorer produces a less exciting 290-hp and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. If you have the need for speed, you’ll have to go up a couple of trims to get the power you deserve in the Explorer. Last, but not least, the standard 8-speed automatic transmission in the X6 changes gears seamlessly for the smoothest ride down South Indiana Avenue. When it comes to the Explorer, the standard 6-speed automatic transmission is mated to each available engine option, so you might feel slightly jerked around in the cabin when you quickly accelerate. As you can see, the X6 really is the total package!

We hope this overview helped you understand why the X6 is the clear winner in this 2018 BMW X6 vs 2018 Ford Explorer near Crown Point, IN, comparison. From the gorgeous and accommodating exterior to the amazing performance, you’ll want to be the one dangling keys. One of our team members here at BMW of Schererville would be ecstatic to join you on a test spin, and to explain everything this luxury full-size SUV has to offer. We’re located at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN, and hope to see you walking through our doors soon!

Driving to work and something broke on my X3 and had to pull over. Called Nick in service before 7am and he immediately spoke with his managers Joe and Kevin (not to be confused with Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas) who took great care of me. They sent a porter out with a loaner so I could get to work and the porter waited with my vehicle until the flatbed arrived. Nick called me as soon as my vehicle arrived and kept me posted on it's status. They had it repaired that evening and I was able to pick it up - even nicer that they didn't charge me. (Warranty is up but I had it in for full service two weeks ago and this may have been overlooked.) Anyways, these three went ABOVE and BEYOND and I cannot say enough nice things about the service dept here! Definitely recommend!

Not sure how to describe my experience. The sales person Antonio was pleasant and attentive as I shopped for my vehicle long distance. He followed through on everything I asked of him including sending me a signed purchase agreement via email with the final (what I thought was) out the door price of the vehicle. I drove 4 hours to finish the paperwork and drive the car home. When I got there and sat down with the finance person the price of the vehicle with fees and taxes was not what I was quoted. I was told both by the finance manager and what I assumed was the gm..that nothing could be done about the fees and pricing...no apologies were given. If they would have at least apologized for the lack of communication I would most likely have let it go. Instead I was told the vehicle was in high demand with others calling on it and I should take it or leave it. I ended up taking it but left with a very bad taste in my mouth for this dealership. I really wanted a smooth pleasant buying experience but in the end I just feel let down.i love the car..but the buying experience was disappointing.

I was searching for a used car online and found one that I was interested in at BMW of Schererville. I spoke to a person on the phone and set up an appointment to look at the car. When i arrived at the dealership, the car was up front, clean and ready to go. I met my salesperson, Laura, drive the car and decided to take the car. The whole process was quick, professional and very smooth. Everyone was courteous, friendly and professional. I would definitely consider using this dealership again when looking for a vehicle.

If you have an M car do not bother with this place. Mechanic acted like I was speaking in tongues when inquiring about bluetooth malfunctioning with the M Performance exhaust. Go to a M certified dealership and save yourself the hassle.

Adeline is absolutely wonderful!! She’s patient, detailed and knowledgeable. I really appreciate Adeline’s customer service and expertise in helping me to find the right vehicle for me and I love my X3. Now, Will who helped me understand the technology- bells and whistles was NOT very helpful or engaged in giving me that superb service. So, I’ll be back to ask more about my technology. #LoveMyBMW

I normally receive great service. However, my last visit was not great. I came in to get brakes and an oil change.I was told that ot would be 2.5 hours, so I stayed there. I was there over 4 hours. When I got back in my car my brake light was till on. I go back in and young man tells me that my brakes were not done because they were still over 5mm. 1. I stayed there for over 4 hrs for an oil change 2. Why didnt he tell me that before I got in my car? All in All, bad customer service this visit. I called a manager and left a message and no call back still 4 days later. Edit: spoke to a manager, they are correcting the issue
