My local dealer had one "show up" when they were anticipating its arrival sometime mid-Feburary....of course, I went to look at it in person and sat in it too....very comfortable indeed and the ergonomics are light years far and away better than the Tacoma....we'll see when they are readily available so that I can get the color I prefer (silver) but it is going to be a small leap, coming down to "just a Ford" after enjoying the level of comfort you get used to in a Lincoln. I am sure that I will be able to adjust....lol
The 2020 Explorer USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) is open but Ford has not published the official introduction pricing yet. While the WBDO (Web Based Dealer Ordering) system is displaying prices, there is no Price Level code assigned yet. As such, be careful with any pricing assumptions. 2019MY vs. 2020MY Explorer prices are showing the 2020MY Explorers at prices well below the 2019's which would be very nice but not likely.
Dealers are being told not to expect the 2020 Explorers to start hitting the ground until July. Balance out scheduling for the 2019 Explorers wasn't fun as there were a lot of scheduling commodity issues with XLT's with #202A particularly difficult to get scheduled.
Our first Ranger sat at the rail yard for 8 days but was finally delivered Thursday morning. Ranger #2 just went into production and is due to arrive the first week of February with Ranger #3 scheduled for production late February. Allocation for Ranger #4 should schedule next week. When we did our most recent "wholesale" meeting with our Ford Zone Manager we were offered allocation for 1 Ranger and we put in a supplemental request for 5 additional Rangers which we didn't get because there's just too little overall allocation available from Dearborn. As usual with a new model, it's going to be a while before production is at a point where there will be sufficient inventory for Dealer's to do any marketing, etc.
All the Dealers in our area now have 1 Ranger each. Every Dealer is listing theirs at MSRP with one Dealer advertising theirs online at MSRP minus a $1,000 discount. That same store finally got a 2019 Mustang Bullitt a month ago which they're listing at $5,000 over MSRP and will never get.
