- 18 Explorer Platinum
I get a lot of people asking me why I'm getting a new truck when my 2017 Explorer Platinum is only 18 months old.
There are many reasons, but they don't seem to understand.
1 - It's dirty
2 - It ran out of gas
3 - There's a scratch on it
All logical reasons (I think)..
For fun I went to the dealer to see what's what, and...
Bottom line is I'm getting a brand new 2018 for the same lease payment as my current one.
I'm basically at that sweet spot where the value of my current explorer is worth more than the lease buyout.
As well the new lease rate is lower than my current one.
I guess it's what you call good timing.
And now I will have the Sync Connect, which I was really disappointed that it was not included in the 2017 model.
All being well I'm abouty a month away.
...for the win!
