2020 F250 Tremor 7.3L Lariat w/ Ultimate & Sport
On Saturday we went to look at a 2021 Explorer ST for my wife, to replace her 2017 Armada Platinum. We were both really impressed with the Explorer ST. She had a 2015 Explorer Sport a while back but this 2021 ST is a whole different animal.

We've purchased 3 vehicles from this dealer, so we knew they would take care of us. MSRP was $58,500, invoice around $56k, we got it for $52k.

The technology in this makes my 2020 Tremor look old! The dash, the big screen are incredible. 400 HP, 415 TQ. The first time we put it into sport mode, just WOW!.

Told her I will be driving this to work frequently!

It looks tiny compared the the Tremor. Quite a bit smaller than her previous Armada, but much more fun!

Nice rig. I tried to get my wife to get a red ST. I really like them.

Looks good. We had been talking about getting rid of the wife's Accord for an SUV and were going to look at them this summer. Then Ford ran their promo crap just before Thanksgiving on the end of year 20's. Wife found an ST in Rapid Red and we got it. She loves it. And you're right, the tech in that is crazy compared to the SD.
 
Wife wanted the blue at first, but then when we looked at it in person the black plastic looked cheap. Then it was magnetic, looked better, but my ex has a "magnetic" Cherokee and wife didn't want to match her. She found the Rapid Red spec'd how she wanted it across state - deal all done online, good price of new rig, better price on trade than local and the rebates and 0% financing made it a no brainer.
 
Congrats! All the reviews I've seen on the Explorer St have been great. They are good looking and can't beat the performance and technology they have. (y)

Hard to beat a Explorer ST at 0%. Thats what we did also. Except wife got “magnetic”. Dont forget to sign up for the Ford Performance explorer experience. For the Explorer the experience is at Park city,UT or Asheville,NC. We have ours booked for 3/30 in Asheville,NC

We are already in the works of planning it. Looking at Utah and toying with just making it a fun trip and driving to and from. I love the magnetic, that was the color of my last truck. Went back and forth between that and rapid red for my 350.

Thanks for the info! We are looking to do ours in Park City, UT late June. (y)
 
I tried talking my wife into getting the ST as well. Ended up leaving with an Expedition. That thing still has some pep in the step!

Tried to get an Expedition because we will be using it to tow a boat. Wife wouldn't go larger than the Explorer. Told her it will limit what size boat we can get and she didn't care, probably because she's the one that will be towing it ?
 
Nice, my wife and I have the same combo!

Our last vehicles were a 2015 F250 and a Chevy Tahoe. We had matching Methods and BFG's.
