    Window Stickers are not available until just before the vehicle goes into production. Check with your Dealer to find out the scheduled build date and then post another request at that time and I'll be happy to check again for you.

    The way business has been the past 3-4 months, we're seeing a lot of similarities to the situation 10 years ago.

    Flat Rock to build BEV

    In our market the Escape incentives total $2,500 or $3,000 for "VIN Specific" units in stock that are considered "aged" inventory.

    The 2019 Escape SE 4WD tops out at just under $31K MSRP and a 2019 Escape Titanium tops out at about $38,800 MSRP.

    The California Dealers made their own arrangements to have the Raptor's picked up and shipped to CA. One was a loaded White SuperCrew, the other was Ruby Red with both having all the Raptor graphics options, etc. The only option missing was the Bead Lock Tires/Wheels which are a commodity issue on Stock Raptor orders.

    We're seeing a drop in Raptor sales to the point that we just sold (2) 2018 F-150 Raptor SuperCrew's that were shipped to 2 different dealers in California. Right now there are 96 leftover 2018's in stock at the closest 300 dealers and 390 2019's.

    Flat Rock to build BEV

    Came directly from the Ford Zone Manager.
  12. Hmmm... I'd like to know where all these Expeditions are being sold. We did well with the new Expedition up until 4-5 months ago and since then Expedition interest and sales have dropped off a cliff. We were advertising (2) 2018 Expedition Limited 4WD's at invoice less rebates and ended up selling them to other Dealers at below invoice just to get rid of them and off our floorplan. We now have (2) 2019's in stock... a Black Expedition Stealth and a Blue Platinum and we're not buying any more until we sell one of the stock units.

    Ford is limiting production of the Escape SE claiming that they're losing money on the SE's because of all the standard equipment additions. It'll be interesting to see what the initial pricing will be when they introduce the new 2020MY Escape. Traditionally they raise prices at the end of the model year in order to minimize the price increase on the new model. Cutting production and the 3rd shift would make one speculate that they're anticipated lower industry sales and/or a recession and will try to meet their profit objective with higher prices on lower production and sales. Further adventures to follow.
