- 18 Explorer Platinum
I ordered a 2018 Explorer Platinum on August 9. I got to choose the vehicle and my wife selected the color. This time, it's going to be the new Burgundy Velvet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat -- the longest paint-color name I've ever seen.
If Ford's current scheduling and production schedule is accurate, I predict delivery in mid-November.
Welcome to the Forum.Was wondering if they made the delivery date. My new Sport from order to estimated delivery is one day over 3 months UGH. Guess I really didn't expect that long of a time frame. Thanks in advance

Once orders start coming in it isn't unusual to see an 8-10 week delivery date. Also the factory closes down for a period of time for the holidays. I ordered my 2011 on December 17, 2010 and it was delivered March 14, 2011.Thanks peterk9. Cotus tracking has order date 11/06/17 and was processed 12/1/17. It's currently in production but has been for some time.
What is the posted lease rate? You can reduce the posted rate by up to 1.5% by using multiple refundable security deposits. The deposits are based on your monthly cost. At the end of the lease you get that back. No interest is paid on it. I have used that method several times when the interest rate was on the high side.The truck is ordered!
Waiting for info from the dealer.
Turns out all my dealers were liars: they quoted prices after factory rebates. In my case, it was a difference of $500. I said WTH...and pulled the trigger as my time and effort was making me nuts. Got 2.9% financing offer from Ford. Still deciding whether to lease or buy. I guess I have 8-12 weeks to decide.
My Explorer's interior is ceramic. Goes nicely with the Burgundy Velvet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat exterior.
Looks like this is going to be a popular color combo for 2018.
