      I ordered a Sterling Grey Explorer with charcoal black leather. I never actually saw an Explorer with these options. I was wondering if anyone ordered the same colors and have the car already. I would love to see some pictures of what it looks like. Thanks!!

      It's a great color. Good enough for Ford to use in their national TV ad campaign.

      I have that color combo and I love it. It's been crappy weather here in Ohio since I picked it, as soon as the weather straightens up and I can get it clean I will post some pics.

      congrats Youngr4! I ordered the same, gray outside, charcoal inside. I don't think it can go wrong with that combo. i've been having my Xterra in gray for 6 years and it still looks great even without washing it often!

      I have ordered sterling grey with stone interior (pic posted on "light stone vs charcoal black" thread below. I think both combo's are great, I am more of a fan of more color contrast rather than more monochromatic, but that's just individual taste. The grey really pops since it has a lot of mellalic flake effect, not just flat grey.

      I test drove Silver/Black XLT and it was beautiful! Of course, I have yet to see a new Ex that I did not like :)

      I have a LTD on order that is Grey/Pecan. I opted to break out from my comfort zone of Black Interior. Still a bit nervous :)

      I have Sterline Grey with Pecan interior - Love it. It is the best color combo in my mind.

      I ordered the same combination. Love the gray and how can you go wrong with a black interior...especially if you have kids. I stuck with the standard 20" wheels because I really liked the look, and didn't want any shiny chrome on my X, though it is not really that shiny.

      i agree with you on the color contrast. i love the black leather with brown/red color on the Limited; however, I can't afford the Limited, so I am getting the XLT, :D

      Mark, besides trailer mode, what do the other two buttons to the left of the steering wheel below the light controls say?

      One is for the TOW mode (purchased with the tow package) and the other is for the Park Assist where the car will parallel park itself (it works great!)

      I have the TOW (Trailer) button on mine (that's the one I was referring tow). so we have Tow, Park Assist, and what else? Auto rear liftgate?

      Mine doesn't get here for another MONTH...just got my fix though looking at your photos, sweet!! ;)

      Of course like the gentleman above said, I have yet to see a color that wasn't really nice when all polished up.

      For those of you still waiting for yours, so far this has really been a great vehicle. It is soooo smooth and comfortable, quiet on the highway, shifts great, the adaptive cruise is amazing (can't believe how well it works), sound system is awesome, and has enough "gadgets" to keep any tech-junky busy. There are some quirks with the Sync (particularly with how the system seems to need more processing power or memory), but overall we are extremely happy with our new Ford so far! I think Ford hit it out-of-the park with this one and it’ll be a big seller for them. In comparing the XLT loaded with the Acadia or Traverse, the Explorer offers much more bang for the money.

      Just got the brochure I ordered online and as I was hoping, a nice $750 coupon right in the back with expiration date in early May. Given my ETA for delivery at dealer is 3/28, I'm very happy right now.
