    Yep they had the specs for the V8 but listed it as a V6. 250Hp is not enough for a V8 so it may as well be a 6.

    stopped by the ford dealer on saturday to price a new eddie b version,, STILL expensive! But I was asking about the time table as to if - or when they would get the newer explorers and he said late sept/ to early October, This was the head sales guy so i'm banking on what he had, apparently several people in the fredericksburg area didnt like the looks of the new style and they made sure they bought the 3rd generation. So if you like the old 3rd gen modle better hurry, I only found one eddie, and 5 xlt's that were kinda cheap looking,, Still cant wait to see the new x's in person.

    Did you price it with the employee discount and all the other incentives they had?

    42k on the eddie b version at MSRP,, 39k at invoice, it was fully loaded, but minus the possible 3k average for the family plan setup, and possibly alittle haggling
    37k?? I want one pretty bad but they arent really wanting to mess w/ the price too much after the discounts from ford,, Is anyone else expericencing this? I wasnt to serious about haggling as I'm not in the market as of yet but if the right price came up,,,

    What about your owner incentive? Mine is $4,000 plus the employee discount. There is another incentive for another $1,000 and I get $500 visa credit and they(Ford) pay the first 2 payments up to $1,200.

    My fairly loaded XLT came to 28K after the X plan and rebates. This was before the everyone gets an employee discount program. Sticker was 36K, so about 8K in discounts. Of course, thats for a 2005 model.

    it is still going to be built for the road as the apprach/crossover/departure angles are not that improved.

    says who? all the sources i've seen have said otherwise.
    if it is based off the current irs explorer, then they will actually be worse and it'll be nearly impossible to lift.

    For a $35000 plus Explorer and you can not think that it is built for offroad.

    hate the grill...

    love the dash and especially the center console adn the shifter.. that is sweet looking... and the 2 white gauges look good..

    V-8 4x4 models are expected deliver up to 10 percent better fuel economy, thanks in part to the wide-ratio six-speed automatic transmission - the first in its class. AAAAA+++++

    lol, i was thinking the same thing about the grill, hopefully it will grow on us, kinda of a small thing to think about but,, if a rock were to come up and hit my 99 ranger that has the chrome grill i'm going to have an indentation, if a rock hits that it's going to be pretty noticable, small thing to think about but just a thought. I love the inside of it, almost like f-150,, looks good, hope they have the same trim levels AKA: EDDIE B, and Limited. okay just my thoughts, i like the looks of it personally
