  1. That is "Blue", not Atlas Blue. Havent seen it on the ST but it looks really good in these pics. Atlas Blue is this one.
  2. My local dealer just got a black ST in so I stopped by to see it in person while I wait for mine to be built. It is definitely a good improvement over our 11 lol. It had the tech package and I agree, the screen doesnt look bad. It looks built into he dash more in person than how the pics show it. Definitely doesnt bother me sitting inside and looking at it.

    2020 Corvette revealed

    I completely agree. It will sell but there will be many Corvette loyalists who look at this and say it isnt a vette. That is where it will hurt GM.

    2020 Corvette revealed

    Did anyone think before the GT was announced that anyone would pay half a million for a Ford? I certainly didnt think so. Maybe if GM created something super special with a very limited run, they could (nah, they couldnt). But my point is, the Corvette isnt special. It is a good value performance car that they build as many as they can. Over a year ago dealers were selling z06s for 10k+ under sticker.

    I Drive the Aviator Reserve

    First, nice review. The Aviator is definitely stunning. I was on the verge of foregoing our Explorer ST order and getting a Nautilus Black Label. The attention to detail of the BL is just stunning. But I am curious on what benefits of the BL you will be utilizing often. I was actually educated (thankfully) by another forum member on the BL just a couple days ago and the reality is there are really just 2 things you get on the BL that is above and beyond any other trim package. You get free car washes anytime you want which sounds great. But the more I think about it, I never bring my vehicle to a touch carwash as I refuse to let it put fine swirls in the clear coat and/or paint. You also get 4 full details of the vehicle. Again I go back to what I just said. I think I'd rather pay to have it ceramic coated and never have to worry about it again. I'm really excited to hear about the GT and see test results.

    RIP Nick... Passed away 7/15/14

    Wow, I remember when this happened. I csnt believe it has been 5 years!! RIP!!
  12. Does anyone with inside knowledge or Lincoln system access know approximately what Lincoln would pay a dealer for selling an Xplan on an approximately $67k MSRP vehicle? I have someone checking for my on a comparable MSRP for a Ford truck but have no idea how much it varies by model or even by brand (Ford vs Lincoln). I'm essentially trying to figure out how far off we are between what they are offering vs if they just accepted my Xplan pin. Example, if we are $2,500 off but Lincoln will pay the dealer a $700 Xplan spiff, then we are really $1,800 off. Knowledge is power and I'm just tiny got get the best deal possible. My wife and I fell in love with a Nautilus Black Label on the showroom floor and instead of waiting for our Explorer ST to come in, we may go this route if we can agree on a price. Thanks to anyone who may be able to help out.

    GM urges patience as Silverado falls to No. 3

    To add to what Akirby said, many are waiting for 2 things. 1) The 2020 redesign with the 3rd gen 6.7. 2) The 2020 with the all new 7.3 gas. The fact that sales are still climbing, higher transaction with less on the hood and so many holding out for August order banks to open.. well ya, enough said.
  14. Goodmorning, Could you look this order up? Wondering if a build week or day has been assigned yet. VIN 1FM5K8GC7LGA02284 Thanks

    2020 Explorer

    Here you go, this was being tracked for an Explorer forum member and it showed up today. Appreciate you helping out as always!!
  17. Another vehicle GM will urge patience due to slow sales??
  18. Hi Cyberdman, I'm not quite sure if this one is against the rules or not (somewhat unique). I am looking at a 2019 Nautilus Black Label and I'm tying to see when it was delivered to the dealer. Would you mind looking up the tracking and telling me the delivery date? With you not wanting PMs, I wasn't sure how else to ask. Originally wanting the Explorer and now my wife fell in love with this instead of waiting for our order to come in. If this is beyond what you offer, just let me know. Thank you either way!! VIN 2LMPJ9JP3KBL36111

    GM Sales Q2 & June 2019

    Never looked inside nor saw the back. It was backed up into a cubby if you will so everybody walked in front of it as they passed by.

    GM Sales Q2 & June 2019

    But all those "real people, not actors" on TV love it!! Actually looks wise I do really like the looks of it. They have a Blue one at Hershey Park and it is definitely a looker. But I never bothered to price one out for shits and giggles.
  22. I would think that although Ford is posting quarterly that if they sold almost 90k Fseries in June, they would call that out. I completely agree with you regarding GM. And until they do an emergency refresh, they will continue to tank in sales.
  23. My eyesight says 79k , not 87k.
  24. The new Explorer is already here. Several people have taken delivery of theirs the past week.
