We ordered our XLT in January, and took delivery in early March.
We have 5k miles on it now, and are very happy with it.
The quality and comfort is much, much better than any Ford we have owned previously.
Interior sound levels are wonderfully quiet, and ride is firm but comfortable.
Stability is much better than previous explorer models.
Seats are very comfortable -- even on long road trips.
Rear seats (both rows) fold completely flat, which is perfect for loading cargo or hauling the family dog pack.
The standard V6 has ample power, and we still get over 22 mpg with mostly highway driving.
Good job, Ford!
