Ford Explorer Discount Offers Nearly $6,000 Below MSRP In December 2020

Ford Explorer discount offers range by region during December 2020, and can total nearly $6,000 in select areas. It’s worth noting that this month’s offers appear to be on par with the most generous incentives offered on the all-new Explorer so far, though the total cash back offers appear to vary by market.

The Blue Oval is also offering interest-free financing for qualifying buyers in select markets, and is combining it with hefty discounts for 2021 models.

    For all that have purchased a 2020 explorer, prior to this “deal”, your vehicle just lost $6000.00 in value! I hope you plan on driving it a long time, or don’t mind taking the hit if you’re planning on trading/selling any time soon. It is really to bad Ford can’t price their vehicles lower on the start of the model year, selling more from the start, than to offer Big discounts near the end of the year. In any case, the explorers 2020 and earlier, have lost, at a minimum, $6000.00 in value.
