2016 Explorer Platinum
Next month I will be going to my dealer to place my order for my new 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum in the White Platinum with the Second Row Bucket Seats including the Console ,DVD Headrest , Roof Rack Cross Bars,Splash Guards and Wheel Locks. I will be returning my leased 2013 White Platinum Ford Explorer Sport with only 17,000 miles and in Show Room Condition. I was originally going to get the 2015 Ford Expedition Platinum but now I am leaning more towards the Explorer Platinum because all the bells and whistles the Explorer Platinum has.

My salesman already contacted me and told me that July/August are the best months to start ordering either SUV since it is the month where you get the most incentives and rebates. I am starting to see the 2016 Explorers on the streets but not a single Platinum one yet. Not even at the dealers but I know its just a matter of time.

I will keep you posted as soon as my order has been placed . Don't know why my dealer gets their orders so fast because when I placed my order for my 2013 Explorer Sport in late December 2012 ( and there was a waiting period of approximately 8-10 weeks back then) I received my Explorer at the dealer on the middle of February ,2013. They dealer explained to me back then that it has to do with dealer allocation. My guess that they must fall in that category so I hope that when I placed my order for the 2016 Explorer Platinum I can get it as fast but truthfully I can patiently wait until it arrives at my dealer. " good things come to those who wait"


Say goodbye to my 2013 Explorer Sport ,

It doesn't matter. The doors are the same in the 2016 model year . Nothing has changed as far as the dimensions on the doors. I can order them for a 2015 and they will fit just fine in the 2016 model. It will be the same with the running boards . I will buy the same running boards from DeeZee for a 2015 model year and they will fit the 2016.

Get your order in ASAP, dealers are getting their August allocations and you don't want to have to wait until September for your order to get processed. At least in my area mid July orders are setting up for late September builds.
