    2020 Ford Explorer

    What's interesting now is trying to figure out the gas tank size. The order guide states 20.2 gallons on the base and with all higher models, it is the Base + etc. Nowhere does it mention anything different. If you look at the Ford manual for the 2020 Explorer, it says 20.2 gallons for all models. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/Catalog/owner_information/2020-Ford-Explorer-GasHEV-Owners-Manual-version-2_om_EN-US_06_2019.pdf If you go to Ford.com and look at the specs, it says the XLT and Limited have a 17.9 gallon tank and the ST/Platinum have a 20.2 gallon tank. One of the biggest complaints on the Explorer Forum is the 18.6 gallon tank (or right about that) and everyone wishes it was bigger. A couple extra gallons will certainly help. Now I'd think with the 2.3 having better fuel economy as well as the Hybrid, maybe they went smaller to save on weight being they will be able to go almost as far as the Platinum/ST with the larger tank??

    They are all future vehicles and/or announcements about FMC products that are coming out in which they are produced by Ford Motor Company. Please explain how tire shine is a FMC announcement or product?

    Yeah, I agree. 2mpg improvement in all areas with a lot more power.

    The 2.3 and 3.3 Hybrid use the 3.58 axle. The 3.0 uses a 3.31.
  10. Have you seen the pictures of it from the Auto Shows? Or youtube videos?

    Don’t buy a Ford

    I bought a 98, 07, 2011, 2015 and now a 2020 on Order (your don't buy a Ford won't sway anyone). Ford does not wash their vehicles (Lincoln does) and frankly since you keep throwing out this $80k number like it should make a difference... FYI, Raptors start at $55k so if I bought one for $55k and you bought one for $80k because you optioned it more, you should get better treatment than I???? Exactly, so stop throwing out how much you paid, it does not make you any more special over any other person who bought a Ford. I would never want a dealership's low paid recondition crew washing my vehicles and putting swirls in the clear coat. Even on delivery I tell them not to wash it, they can detail the inside and dress the tires but that is it. Ford does not pay for rentals (again, normal). Some dealers have their own fleet of vehicles at their expense. My dealership that I have been going to for 10 years now just started this last year. Guess what you get for free... and EcoSport. Granted it is still free but it is also first come first serve. If you buy Ford's ESP (I can get you one at cost), then you get a rental vehicle up to $50 per day covered for up to 10 days. There is also a 1st day rental option for under $100 where you drive away with one upon drop off instead of waiting 24 hours. What I don't understand is why you would drive 2,000 miles after the dealership said to drop it off with 2 major issues (oil pressure and transmission). Rental vehicles are covered in your manual/warranty guide that comes with the vehicle. Sound like you haven't spent the time to read through it. There is a lot of info in there, I'd suggest you read it.

    A customer review

    Your sisters was built on the 1st day they started production? Guess it was a Dealer stock order (I'd NEVER do a dealer stock order on a new MY with an all new design). Ok To Buy has not been established yet so it won't be shipping right now. On top of that, it will be jammed up in storage lots waiting for a 2nd inspection once ok to buy is given and won't likely get it for quite a while.
  14. Ford roadside covers 5yrs/60k. Powertrain coverage is also 5yr/60k. Not sure what the issue is but there was potential for a free repair and you would have had a free tow.
  15. Have it towed to the dealership. You are covered for Ford roadside, dont even drive it any more.
  16. F46,255 - $2,000 for invoice, another $1,500 for holdback, a couple thousand for re ates and $3,000 PCO offer You could take $8k off that price easy.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    Slightly confused. Are you saying you expect the 3.0 to be 21/29/24 or are you saying the 2.3 should be higher then what Ford is saying it is? I'd be very happy with 29 highway with my ST. I average low 20s with my 2011. Personally it cant get out of it's own way on the highway.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    A member on the Explorer forum found a few 2.3 window stickers. It is 20/27 with 23 combined. http://www.windowsticker.forddirect.com/windowsticker.pdf?vin=1FMSK8FH9LGA02304 Nothing on the 3.0 yet.
  21. I can assure you I like many are not getting raises every year to cover the cost of inflation for what is almost equal product. My wife who is in the dental field and rated as one of the top employees of 40+ year after year didnt get a raise for 8 years freezes across the board). Myself it has been 3 years despite the highest of ratings across my district. My 15 f350 platinum that I had loaded up that I paid $62k for is still worth $54k 5 years later. Why is that? Because of how much these vehicles are increasing in cost brand new. It's both amazing and sad that I could sell it for $54k, put it down on a 2020 and walk out with a brand new one only owing $25k after getting 5 years out of my 15. I stand by my comment that this type of pricing for a FORD has to plateau at some point. $40k escape, $50k edge, $60k explorer, $80k expedition, $95k superduty.. $60k Corsair????
  22. I'm wondering when this is all going to start leveling out (the cost increase in vehicles). There has to be a point where Manufacturers have to stop increasing the prices as they are going increasing far faster than inflation is. 2020 Escape Titanium $40k My 2011 Explorer Limited (every option possible), $43k when I bought it. Yes I get that there are a few things that are offered now that wasn't back then but it's just amazing how expensive these vehicles are getting.
