    wonder what the prices on these things will be, read the article. Seems like they have put a lot of thought into some updates and things one would never think of. Starting to even come around on the grill!! :)

    i wasnt speculating, my post came directly from the 2006 explorer product information guide my sales manager had given me earlier in the day.

    ...and remember, those grilles you guys dont like are only on the eddie bauer and limited models, meaning you will rarely see them.

    Okay its been a while sense someone has said something on here about the new arrivals. I've noticed they've put out the new expeditions did they change those on the front alittle?, but has anyone seen the new explorers at their local dealers yet? Or are we going to all have to wait til October?

    I saw the new 06 x's this weekend. And I must say that I love , love the inside, outside I'm still not sure about. Looks good w/ the Eddie B package but not much on the plastic trim for the XLT models. Has anyone test drove one or even bothered looking at purchesing one??

    Limited msrp = $44,630. Dealer price was $42,500. I dont remember what the invoice was and I would get a rebate of $2000. They also offered me $4500 for my trade.

    I could lease it for $434.00 monthly with an additional $3,508 down

    yeah, on the eddie b package, it was $40k on the msrp, Little to steep for this beach boy! I think the talking navi system on the model I looked at added another 1500, but is avoiding getting lost worth all that!? For a ford?? On another note, I thought the lil station wagon car out, (the name escapes me, ) but i thought that vehicle would keep the cost alittle lower for true SUV owners/die hards.,,

    When i got there they had 6, 5 was xls and xlts and 1 was limited(v8) which was already sold. The dealer said they have plenty on order but they dont know when they will get there.

    I want to test the v8 only.

    They have $2000 rebate on the 06. Nothing else is going on for the time being. Plus I will try my Costco plan when they have better incentives.

    For now Ford is not even offering a loyalty discount. They want to see how well it sells first and try to get rid of all the old stock.

    I am patient so I will wait for the offers to get better.

    I dont have to be the first on the block.
