I was wondering about that colour. It is different from the others. I used the Ford website to change the colour of the Explorer on it several times. I ordered my 2017 Platinum in White Gold because it was a little different from the others. I wonder if the Silver Spruce will turn out to be a one year deal like mine?

My wife likes Silver Spruce because it's different. I believe Ford introduced Silver Spruce on the 2019 F-150 and Super Duty trucks. While it's not common, Silver Spruce trucks can be found in inventory at many Ford dealers. Seeing the Silver Spruce paint on a vehicle in full daylight is what convinced us to order a Silver Spruce Explorer.

Very exciting. So both of ours are scheduled to be built the same week. :chug:

Maybe it's coincidence that both of our 2020 Explorers have been scheduled to be built during the same week, or maybe all early retail orders are scheduled for the week of June 17th. We'll know more as additional order-status threads are added to this discussion.

According to the Ford Vehicle Order Tracking website, the status of my Silver Spruce Explorer Platinum has been updated from "Processing" to "In Production" as of this morning. The window sticker has also been generated, and I've printed a copy. Things seem to moving along in Chicago!

Does having a window sticker mean the vehicle has been built?

5-7 days after the window sticker is generated is when it goes down the assembly line.

Yup. This has been my experience with my 2016 and 2018 Explorers, both special orders.

If you look at the fine print at the very top of the window sticker, you'll see a nine-digit code just above the word "BLEND". Ignore the first digit of that code and interpret the remaining eight digits as the year, month and day of production. For example, the nine-digit code on my window sticker is 120190625, so production year is 2019, month is 06, and day is 25.

BTW, the background color of the window sticker for my 2020 Platinum is green. Most Ford window stickers I've seen are blue, and I believe the Explorer ST gets a red window sticker to indicate a Ford Performance vehicle. Any idea why my Explorer's window sticker is green?

Wow didn't realise that about the manufacturing date, that's actually super helpful in determining which PTU I have (amongst other things). Thank you!

Green is retail order, blue is dealer stock. Red is because it is a Ford Performance vehicle.

Thank you for this info, blwnsmoke. The green stickers to signify a retail order must be something new. My 2016 Explorer was a retail order and the window sticker was blue. I still have the original window sticker in my archives.

On the top of the window sticker there are some codes: u above trd, r above ramp, mi above bump
In the lower left hand corner, box titled ramp one has CJO6 in it and there is a box that has CONVOY in it. Anyone know what these codes mean.

I was wondering the same thing, I found this article from a focus RS forum, and it breaks everything down, for example on mine its says 4-rebill and idk what that means https://www.focusrs.org/forum/11-focus-rs-purchasing/4248-window-sticker-guide-how-read.html

but Convoy means it will be delivered via truck and not rail
