The market is absurd

285 hp, 350 hp, 400 hp, etc. doesnít justify ridiculous pricing

2 - 3 yrs old Explorer Sports w/ 40k miles range are selling for 50% - 60% of original MSRP at dealerships. The owners received even less value on trade.

Hence, depreciates like a rock.

Buy used, after it depreciates like a rock (at the 2 - 3 yrs timeframe).

01Cobra Should be some good used explorer sports hitting the market. That ST price point pushes into range of some very competitive options.

Ermygerd, I wish my wife had waited a few years before she bought her Explorer. This is gorgeous!!!

Kensington That apparently includes destination and delivery

Edit: I was wrong, it DOESN'T include those...

When tapped for pricing, a Ford spokesperson sent along the following pricing information (excluding destination and delivery), which I have organized into a chart for your perusal

Knowklew What does ford charge for destination?

b4black Just trying to give some credibility to the 3.0 going into the Explorer (as already mentioned, it was previously touted as a Lincoln only motor) and that the new platform is rear wheel.

The optional engine is the 3.0L EcoBoost twin-turbo V-6 producing 365 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque…over the current model powered by a 365-hp, 350 lb-ft 3.5L turbo v-6.

Thanks to the rear-drive chassis, the 2.3L-powered model can be equipped to tow up to 5,300 lbs.

Obviously going from transverse to longitudinal might affect intake and exhaust, but the current 3.0T doesn't gain THAT much with a tune. Not the 80/100 we're used to seeing, it's more like 50/30

Unitsn4 That front end treatment--yuck! I hate it on the Edge, too. Hopefully it'll look better in person, but I'm already looking forward to the mid model run refresh. That certainly helped the current Explorer after they sharpened up the head/tail lights to get away from the original blobbed on look.
