Trying to decide on a leftover 2018 Explorer Platinum or order a new Ascent Touring. Both would be around the same price $44k. The Ascent just seems underpowered and a little boring. However reliability and resale seem better. I will be using it to tow my boat and occasionally have my 2 year old son. Any thoughts between these two?

I wouldn’t recommend buying a 12yr old car for $44,000.

The old Explorer has already been replaced with a far far superior machine hitting show rooms in June/July.

The 2019 and older Explorer is way behind in crash standards, is a transverse mounted, front wheel drive car.

The new one is linear mounted engine, rear wheel drive platform Way more efficient, way more crash worthy and packed full of modern tech for safety systems.

If you really like that old Explorer just buy a 5 yr old one get the same machine for half price.
