...Thanks to Crystal, Cory and Ashley who answered the mail and tracked it for me!

You're very welcome, jetpilot747! I'm glad to hear that you and your Explorer finally met; I bet the wait was worth it. :)

Still smiling! Lots to get use to. Seems like a new experience everyday. So far I have about 180 miles and getting an average of 10.3 MPG. That part is scary. All city and have not driven over 45mph. I understand that is not unusual at the beginning. Already ordered me a WeatherTech Cargo Mat. It amazes me all the safety features this vehicle has. Reading about it and seeing them work is two different things. Very nice back-up camera, etc. Love, love, love it!!

I'm over here in Germany and my Sport rolled off assembly July 30th; ETA to Baltimore port was 8/9 but it arrived 8/5. Now its supposed to sit in Balt. port until estimated boat departure of 8/18 and arrival in German port 8/30; then maybe I can actually pick it up around 9/9 (week of). The wait is killing me..hurry the heck up already so I can play!

Got my Sport yesterday (9/6); love it! It was a good 350 mile drive from the port to home yesterday; good time with the vehicle. However, not impressed with the seats (drivers). This is supposed to be a sport, which should mean supporting, hugging seats that you shouldn't really slip in; but that's not the case. It really does need some side bolsters to say the least. Also the drivers seat seems to not be flat; the bottom angles down to the right a bit towards the center armrest/console. But if this is my only complaint, not bad :) Its very nice and can't wait to get some more break-in miles on it before I install the Lund tune.

I ordered my 2014 Sport on 8/9

VIN was provided on 8/15

Finally got the window sticker on 9/6 with a build date set for 9/12

Hope there are no unnecessary delays in getting it delivered. Was told by Crystal the delivery date is holding steady at 10/8.....fingers crossed.

I only have option 401A upgrade plus all-weather mats and liner.

Awesome news, anomadtoo! :thumbsup:

It'll be here before you know it, khill297. The wait is the hardest part, but you'll forget about it once your new Explorer is in your driveway. :)

Any updates from other members on typical wait time? Just ordered mine yesterday and have been told the usual 6 to 8 weeks. The wait is the tough part no doubt!

Safe driving everyone!

I posted this in another thread, but copying here....

I picked up my Sport this past weekend. It came in last Wednesday to Randall Ford in Ft. Smith, Arkansas from the Chicago. It took exactly 7 weeks from the time I ordered to the time it arrived. Ordered on Aug 7, build started Sept 4, finished Sept 12, arrived Sept 25.

Thanks. So far it is really nice. I traded in an Audi Q7 for it, and I'll post a review/comparo in the next few days.

Good to hear and looking forward to your detailed impressions. I am trading in a BMW and was pretty impressed (so far) by the ride quality.

Congratulations on ordering, MarineGrunt51! As I mentioned on another thread you posted on, I'll be happy to provide you with updates on your Explorer's status. Just send me a PM with your VIN and I'll do the rest. :)
