    2020 Ford Explorer

    Thanks to another member on the Explorer Forum, ok 2 buy has been issued on Explorer only. NO hybrids and NO Aviators yet.
  2. Because they are the only ones to post a review? Lol
  3. I guess we know where those trucks of Explorer's were going...
  4. I agree. My mother's 17 fusion 2.0 hums quietly... much more quiet refined then the 3.5 in my 11 Explorer.
  5. Only the ones that regularly go to vehicle forums (enthusiasts).
  6. Yes but then you give up the massaging seats. If you want those, tablet screen it is.
  7. 0-60 in 5.5.. not too bad. A nice tune should get that in the low 5s.

    2020 Explorer

    Well that was wierd. Not sure how that happened. Sorry.
  9. "Ford promises 500 miles to a tank" with the hybrid. 500 / 17.3 gallons = 29 mpg minimum highway. My guess is it will hit 30mpg as I would think Ford would not want to miss that mark.

  11. They were posted in the Explorer thread a little over a week ago

    2020 Explorer

    Good morning, another update if possible please. 1FM5K8GC7LGA02284
  14. That just means all those people who had a Stock order placed will be rattling and falling apart driving off the dealer lots lol. Certainly glad I have a Retail order.. 5 weeks tomorrow and they are still having issues!!!
  15. Well that makes sense...

    2020 Ford Explorer

    A guy on the Explorer forum knows the QC manager of CAP. He asked today and was told no ok to buy has been given. So not sure where those trucks were going.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    Which ones?
  18. Everything you said I just said. I'll agree to disagree in that it is still a marketing ploy/gimmick.
  19. Sorry but I don't consider "standard" anything above the cheapest option. I think this is just a play on words. If they can downgrade the engine and save money.. then it isn't standard to me. Standard to me is the the BASE engine (cheapest option). All it takes is one click of the mouse to change the engine option and save money (cheaper). IF the hybrid was the cheapest option or the only option, then yes I could understand Ford saying it is the Standard engine.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    Completely agree with you. And try reaching out the window when at an ATM or drivethru. I sure hope this one is improved. There have only been a select few that have been able to sit in them, most are locked at the auto shows. TFL is getting one next week to test so I am looking forward to reading their review. I sure hope they get the ST to test.
  21. It is standard by upcharging the customer. They can choose not to have the hybrid option which will drop the price... So it really isnt standard lol.

    Don’t buy a Ford

    As stated, Ford is not luxury and not trying to compete with Luxury. That's what Lincoln is for. That is also why Lincolns get free rentals, free car washes, and a longer warranty. Same reason Toyota has Lexus, GM has Cadillac, VW has Audi and Porsche, Nissan has Infinity etc.
