I'm in the process of ceramic coating (C.Quartz Leather) the inside while it's still rather clean (easier prep work).

Picked up my Rich Copper ST last night! The pictures don’t do the color justice... very happy with my color choice!! Only thing missing from the picture are the cross bars... one was damaged so didn’t put them on and they are ordering me new ones.

Any more pics you can post of this color in direct or brighter sunlight without shadows?

That’s the first ST I’ve seen in that color and from your pics, it’s definitely different!!!

Sweet looking ride... I really like the lower door decals

I have a question for btl, frank and hiho. I noticed that the three of you have the xlt, is it 4wd and does it have the 2.3 ecoboost? If so how has it been so far as reliability is concerned. I am asking because motor trend says that that particular engine is a bit noisy and i am wondering if it is a defect or if that is normal. I prefer the opinions of forum members as they keep the car longer than those magazine companies which only do an initial review. Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.

The 2.3L is a bit raucous, especially when compared to the prior model's standard V6. Honestly it feels wrong for such a large SUV. It takes some getting used to. However, the engine response in most cases is much better.

Beautiful color ...
Thank you the Star White and the Rapid Red stood out the most to me. I had the pear white on my 2016 so figured to get something new.

Hey Peeps!
Picked up my XLT on 02/18/2020:


Tinted the windows 20% all around,.
Pulled the 18s and threw some Matte Black 20s w/Yokohama 275/55r20 all around


Matte Blacked out the Chrome
Sprayed the rear on as I thought it would break.

Pulled the sides and sprayed.

Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
Unfortunately, there are no pictures to be seen. All I see are gray circles with a white "minus" sign in the middle.

2020 Explorer XLT
Hello all,

I just purchased a 2020 xlt. I like the explorer badging on the hood of the ST. I know the dealer sells and applies it for under 100$. IS there any cons to this? Regarding paint issues?
