Will the 2021 Explorer Order Guide still be available on 04/13/2020 for the 2021MY, or has it been delayed due to the shut down?

I'll check on Monday morning and may know more over the weekend if Ford releases a new FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) this week which is the source for all the production timetable information.

The 2021 Explorer timetable is still the same according to the FDNB that was released yesterday. We'll just have to wait until Monday to see if they release the 2021 Explorer Order Guide but there have been times when an order guide didn't get released on time.

The 2021 Explorer Order Guide has not been released either via the FMCDealer.com portal or the Ford Fleet site. Considering the COVID-19 situation and all production and vehicle scheduling suspended, I wouldn't expect the order guide to be available until production and scheduling timetables are updated.

I"m assuming the order bank is not open yet. Was curious if there are any plans for a USDM release of the Explorer PHEV.

Some de-contenting as well following Ford's pattern of feature removal after the first model year.

Any examples? I'm on the cusp of picking up a 2020 Limited and am curious to know what they've done/removed for 2021. Thanks.

No more heated wiper park/wiper de-ice, power seats are 8 way vs 10 way, paddle shifts are only included with trailer tow, Cargo management is optional with Trailer Tow was standard,  XLT lose heated rear seats and 4 way adjustable head restraints, rear head restraints don't automatically fold when chair is flipped.

Looks like some of the features were actually deleted from the Job 2 Explorers even though the order guides don’t reflect it. The Heated wiper park and the auto fold second row headrests are now gone even though the order guild doesn’t show that
