Ford Explorer, SUV

I just got a quote on a 2013 Explorer XLT with many options, MSRP of $42,165 ... they quoted a 36 mo lease for $398.22 which includes taxes ... $995 down (includes tags and all fees) miles of 10,500.
My question; is there room to bargain this lower or it is a good deal?
#251 of 261 Explorer Lease msrp is before group discounts/savings?
Jan 18, 2013 (12:34 pm)
I received an interesting email from a local dealer concerning the pricing of Equipment Group 302A. The sticker shows this option group listed at $6480, while Ford's 'Build Your Own' web page prices it at $5600. I inquired about the difference and was told that the difference of $880 was taken off on the bottom of the sticker. And he is correct. There is a "Total Before Discounts", then a line called 'Equipment Group Savings' where the $880 is deducted, leaving a "Total MSRP" that is net of the group discount/savings. All fine and good. Except that the email further states "For lease purposes, the MSRP is taken before the package discount". So they are using the 'Total Before Discounts' which is a number greater than the MSRP, when computing the residual. I'd never heard of that before, and wonder if that is particular to Ford, or if others have seen it used elsewhere.

I've seen that on domestic leases, before... A higher residual is a good thing on a lease, as it lowers the payment...

I have had a 2011 with pano roof and power liftgate for over a year and a half, no leaks.

Then good for you, but after reading all the posts about this water leaking issue I decided to go with other brands.
Thanks for the input and enjoy your Explorer
#256 of 261 Recent 14 Explorer purschase experience

I've used this forum many times before and wanted to share my purchase and hopefully it will help someone.
2014 Explorer Limited; 302A package; platinum white tri-coat paint; 2nd row bucket seats; dual panel moonroof; adapt cruise control/collision warning; tow package; polished aluminum wheels. MRSP 50815. OTD 46300 + tax. Could have haggled for a bit more (maybe 1k less) but they gave me a good trade price so made up for it there. 1.7% financing 60months. Hope this helps someone. Now let's hope I'm happy with the vehicle...never owned a FORD.

FB23 - congratulations on your new Explorer and thank you for sharing your purchase experience with us on the forums.
My wife was a Ford girl for many years; I found them to be good dependable cars.
Of course, my last one was an '03 Focus, so I'm sure they've been improved on over the years.

#259 of 261 HELP!! LEASE + EXPLORER XLT + ARE we being taken advantage of????
Nov 22, 2013 (8:49 pm)
GREATLY appreciate any wisdom, insight and/or help ANYONE can provide regarding a $378/month 36/month term lease we were quoted in Arizona for a 2014 Explorer XLT. They are also willing to pick up the first month’s payment and no out of pocket costs as we will be trading in our 2000 audi a6 2.7 twin turbo awd quarto. Would you consider this a “fair” price? Thoughts? – Thank you!!!
