I doubt they publish a specific day/time if it weren't a public reveal (not just employees) Unless you're meaning its an employee-only event to attend.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

It's just an event held at Ford Field in Detroit, for employees, retirees and suppliers.

Right, but it's being shown to the world then.

I am shocked at pricing...

I built a Limited with AWD - $51k

Then I checked some of the competition with similar equipment...

Honda Pilot EX-L: $39.6k
Subaru Ascent Limited: $38.9k
Mazda CX-9 Touring: $42k
Kia Telluride EX: $37k

And premium offerings:

Acura MDX + tech: $51.3k
Audi Q7 Premium plus: $56k
Lincoln Aviator Reserve: $59k

Ford lost its mind LOL!!

We will have to see...Ford upped the prices to luxury levels - I think sales will go down the other way...

Ford is in the profit business, not sales volume business

Hmmmm that’s a dangerous road...you have to sell to make a profit...if your competitors can produce a similarly equipped vehicle for $15k less and make a profit, there’s certainly something wrong with that model.

You are looking at this completely wrong.

What you should be asking is, if you can make the same product for the same money yet charge $15K more, you are winning. Last I looked, Explorer is still at or near the top in sales and that will easily continue.

You may have missed but I was talking about the 2020...the 2019 is priced very competitively against the competion...
