Are you sure the Ecoboost is the only difference. The Limited has several options that are not available on the Sport. heck carefully. You won't regret the Sport's engine. As for incentives, you get either those in force when you ordered OR those available when you take delivery. You can't get both.
Did a very quick check. Sport does not have rain sensing wipers and I didn't see where it had the parking features. It does have class III tow package as standard and can have the 500 Watt sound system (optional)

Well I get around $1400 difference when I build the same options that I ordered with Limited vs Sport on Ford.ca.

Unless there are things in the limited that I won't get no matter what with the Sport. I would love to know what those are.

I just realized that you cannot get lane keep assist, rain sensing wipers and park assist on the sport. I'm a gadget guy and I love those features. Not sure what to do.

Thats what I was referring too.

I went from Limited to Sport and lost those, thought it was big deal then realized I didn't use them enough to warrant the worry. Plus the engine power makes up for any gadgets.

Honestly, I thought the same, but after having the Sport for 3 years I don't miss them at all. The performance benefits overcome the missing features.

Bartender...Jack and coke, please.
I hurt my back and have been out, I'm back now. ;)
So, the X that I order has been delivered but it's not what I ordered. The dealer ordered the 300A package not the 301A. Salesperson didn't send me the DORA until it was way too late so they had to order me another one. This time he let me check everything before they hit send on the order. It was ordered on 15 Sept and had an estimated delivery of 27 Nov. I checked today and it's now estimated at 22 Nov. Still in pre-production. I'm itching to know what the build date will be but have decided not to bother the salesperson, I'll wait it out. LOL!


Here are the stats in case anyone is wondering about the timeline when ordering. You're looking about two months at this point.

Thanks Sgt1411. Looking forward to it. I also bought ESP PC Plus for $3915+HST and they gave me 3 free oil changes.

I am supposed to get the Sport on Monday.

That would likely be you since you need to have an Elite Explorer membership to do that.;)

Last round is on me, guys. It arrived yesterday but the dealer can't have it ready until tomorrow. It's okay, my husband is sick today. I may run by and go visit it.
They will not take the plastic off the seats nor will they wash it. They will only put nitrogen in the tires and do the pre-vehicle inspection.
This is the first of the 8 (this is the 8th) Explorers that will have exactly the features I want.

Getting ready to order 2017 Explorer Limited but can't decide on the engine. Does the 2.3L need premium unleaded exclusively or can it use 87 octane with a little reduction in performance? I planned to order and determine what deals it will qualify for including the xplan. Not sure if joining Costco will get me any additional rebates since I currently have a SAMs card.

Both the 2.3L and 3.5L Ecoboost engines will run fine on the recommended 87 octane as per the Owner's Manual. Premium is only required if you want top performance or are towing. I tried 91 octane in my previous 3.5L Ecoboost and really didn't notice a difference. You can always try switching to see if you notice a difference. The Ford.com website will show if the Costco rebate is in force when you buy. It was not here in Canada a couple of weeks ago when I got mine.

When I got the Costco $1000 cash back they told me you had to show a minimum 6 month membership previous to sale of vehicle. Depends if they hold you to that or let it slip.

When that offer is available, the date that you had to have been a member by is always shown in the offer itself. I did get a membership as I was looking at a Spring time deal but things happened so quickly that the offer was not in effect when I recently got my 2017 so I'll let the membership lapse when renewal comes around.

After my husband having emergency surgery and getting out of the hospital the day before Thanksgiving, we finally got to pick up the new Ex on Friday the 25th. When we left the lot, it had 22 miles on it. Love it! The "contour motion" seats are the best.

Monday, on our way into town, on a very busy major road, the Ex lost power. The whole vehicle was shaking, the engine light came on and we barely made it safely off the road. AAA came and towed it back to the dealer. It now sits at 114.4 miles on the dealer lot. :(
I'm guessing it's a TB issue and so are they. I've heard nothing today from them but hopefully they'll get it straightened out soon. I'm so disappointed.

I hope none of you have this issue!

Happy for your husband's recovery and can share your sense of excitement, since I'm due to receive my Explorer sometime this week. Sucks that you have to wait even longer, but lucky no damage was done as a loss of power like that could have been catastrophic. Fingers crossed it's a quick and simple fix. Out of self-interest can you let us all know what specific model / engine and maybe the build date as well? Would like to know if I should be cautious during my own Ex's break-in period. Cheers!

Thank you.
It's a Limited, 3.5L TI-VCT engine.
To be honest, I don't know if there was any damage done. I'm hoping not. We did have to restart it after we got it in the lot as I realized we were partially blocking an exit to the drive-thru ATM ( bank parking lot). Scary, it shook like crazy! When the tow got there the driver asked us to start it, it turned over but didn't start.
Cautious, I tend to take it easy during break in. We weren't romping on it at all. We had just gotten a green light, made a left turn and stopped in the road for a vehicle turning right. When my husband got back on the gas, all hell broke loose.

Best of luck with yours!

EDIT: Just got a call from the service dept. The cam chain broke. Apparently one of the links wasn't crimped properly and broke. They are pulling the engine today and will then find out if it is catastrophic.
