    Expand CUV power plant options

    The wife's 2011 MKX is due for replacement at the end of the year. There is not much out there in either the Edge or MKX lines that allows for a little more (2.3 or 2.6 Ecoboost) get-up-and-go w/o mandating all-wheel drive. With a 4X4 Expedition as our other vehicle, we don't really need to upsize to Explorer or Aviator. I understand that certifying power plants is a complicated process, but we're probably not the only ones with this concern. As much as cars cost nowadays, you have to hang on to them for the long term so why not get something more "fun" to drive? Living in the SW, we have no need for all-wheel drive and the inherent costs that accompany it (ie. need to replace a tire and have to buy all four); and we have our other car for whenever we would.

    2020 Expedition?'s

    Aluminum body, ten-speed auto and next gen. 3.5 ecoboost. Be advised that, it you're looking for a trim line above XLT, they're real proud of them. However, if you're not in a hurry, it might be worth waiting until the full-size GM SUVs come out next fall. Even if you don't care for the GMs, competition with newer models ought to make Ford a little more generous in their pricing structure.
  3. My son ordered a 2020 Superduty w/6.7...loaded Platinum on 9/4. Initially Ford showed it scheduled for delivery yesterday when all of a sudden its status was changed to "QA Hold." That was over a week ago and they are unable to get any new information on how long this will be in effect. Wouldn't be a big deal except it was bought in another state (deal too good to pass up) and he will fly in to take delivery there and drive back home. Can't change flight until new information surfaces. Any inside info would be appreciated. PM for VIN if needed. Thanks, Bob

    2020 F-250

    Son is shopping for a 350 right now. He's been told six to eight weeks from order acceptance. They didn't say if "acceptance" means an order that is successfully placed, or one Ford has actually entered into the production schedule.

    2020 Super Duty Production Information

    Assuming that the order bank really does "open" next Wednesday, it's going to be a difficult process for anyone to put an order together w/o the order guides in hand. Any new (timeline) information would be appreciated as I have a son who is chomping at the bit to order one.

    Gladiator: Ike Gauntlet

    I kept hearing Andre say how well it drove, yet the video showed the vehicle wandering over the white lines on both sides. With big rigs around, that makes for white-knuckle driving for most people.
  7. That is world class irony, a car maker with a long-standing reputation for electrical gremlins going to all-electric.

    Anyone with an auto transport recommendation?

    I believe it was New Prague Ford...BTW, in further negotiations with Jones Ford, they matched that price.

    2019 Expedition Production Information

    When I used it, it didn't show much progress beyond check in the order placed circle...however, at the end of that row of progress indicators, it showed an expected arrival date.

    2018 vs 2019 Pricing - Platinum Edition

    I did an X-Plan search in your area. X-Plan on a (White Platinum paint) 2018 Platinum Max 4X4 with HD Towing and 2nd row buckets is $76,276 (and that's including the $3,250 rebate). That's on a vehicle with a MSRP of $83,185. Vehicle is at Beechmont Ford. You might be able to do better, but with a trade, get ready to play some games.
