New member but current 2017 Expedition Limited Max owner looking to buy a new 2022 or 2023 Expedition Limited Max.
Cant find what I want at the dealers without buying a whole lot of extras that I don't want
Looking at ordering from my local dealer Coconut Ford in SW Florida.
Any tips on ordering, or suggestions of dealers to order from ( or not to order from )
I'm not looking for anything to out of the ordinary...White , with black interior, or black with sandstone interior , 4x4 , HD Tow Package, Limited High package ( even though I am not sure about the on road ride on 22 inch tires as my 2017 has 20 's ) 2nd row split bench, auto stop delete .
Any suggestion, tips or recommendations ?
Thanks

Just a couple: Get a copy of the order guide and go through it with a fine-tooth comb. Be sure to look at all the packages associated with the model you select as sometimes you can get more for your buck with a package of options than by going with a la carte ordering. When you're satisfied with your "deal," make sure that you receive a copy of a contract, and that it has been signed by an authorized dealer person. This will protect you from any price increases and having the dealer try to charge you the elevated price saying that you didn't have a "contract," only a "proposal." For what it's worth, have your order assigned a priority 10; it's the best you can get at the dealership level. Also tell the salesman to request a DORA in order to verify that the vehicle specified in your contract was actually ordered correctly. Finally, don't count on seeing the truck you've ordered for six months or so

Make certain that the dealer includes your email address in the order - you will get an email when it is ordered, and be able to verify the options ordered and track the process.

I had a 2003 Eddie Bauer, a 2012 XLT 203A (basically Eddie Bauer equivalent), and not have had a 2022 Limited Max 303A. I was also a bit concerned about the 22" wheels on the road.

I'm very happy with the on road performance and comfort of these 22" wheels. We'll see how I feel when I have to replace them.

If you are worried about the ride, you can upgrade to the Limited Stealth and then add the Continuous Controlled Damping with Suspension Road Preview. I added that on mine and love it. See if you can drive one at the dealer with the 22” wheels, and then drive a Platinum which comes standard with the CCD. There is a big difference over bumps. But that is a lot of money to change the ride.
