Default WTB: Ford Explorer Sport

Thought I would toss it out to the THT crowd, and see if anyone is considering selling theirs - I'm looking to buy a '16-'18 Ford Explorer Sport with under 30k miles or so. There are 4 options I am looking to include: Color: Silver, 2nd row bucket seats, sunnroof, 401a equipment package.

I'm in between Boston, MA, & Providence, RI, but willing to travel (or ship) for the right one.

Thanks for any leads!

Not silver but does have the 2nd row buckets, which are hard to find.

Thanks for that one gf! I'm trying to stay away from black (& red), but it seems there are most in black. Otherwise, that one looks pretty nice.

I love mine!!! I'm making 420 awhp with a few mods and a lot of tuning. Have you driven one using "SAND MODE" yet? That dedicates the PTO for primary rear wheel drive and turns off all the traction nannys!! Gives you no-expo throttle sensitivity and full boost off the line. Its the same calibration as the Focus RS "Drift Mode".

Remove the roof rack to gain .2-.75 mpg on the highway and to give it more of a Service Vehicle look. None of the Police Interceptor Explorers come with roof racks... its almost like having highway immunity! If you want a Setina Pushbar, LMK!

Best of luck!!

Yours looks sharp - that front bumper def. gives it an "official" look.

That's the funny thing - never drove one, never actually been in one, but just know that's what I want.
I like the sounds of the "sand mode"!
Seen some white ones popping up, which I could do over silver if that's all I can find.

My wife has a 2018 Explorer that we bought a few months ago, she doesn't like came out of a suburban and wants to get into something bigger again.
It's white platinum with middle row bucket seats, moon roof, husky liners in the front and middle rows, heated front seats and steering wheel. Not sure on the exact mileage but its under 10k
I'm in Portland Maine
