Anyone have the ability to seach Ford dealers for a new Expedition within "N" miles of a zip code?

Although I've been waiting for new power options to become availabe in Expeditions for 2 years now, I've resigned myself that they're at least 18+ months away best case given no new powerw options in 2012. Even if the EB or 6.2 is available in the 2013s, they will be tough to get early, and there will be no deals to be had until the very end of the 2013 run. A lot of "if's". I may pull the trigger now, then buy another in 2 years.

I've been on the Ford site trying to search for the Limited model I want, no luck with zip codes within about 100 miles of my home. Even plugged in another dozen zip codes 200-400 miles away but no luck. The Ford site will only show 5-6 vehicles close to a given zip code, does anyone have access to an inventory search tool that will do a wide search, like where you enter a zip code and search all inventory within "N" miles? I'd be willing to travel 400-500 miles for the right car.

If so, could you direct email me and I'll provide the exact 2011 vehicle I'm looking for? I'd post it here but don't want someone to poach my new Expedition. LOL.... Thanks John jknott@erols.com If it works out, I would be happy to provide a small finder's fee for your trouble.

I do not have an answer to your question but could check the local dealers if you want.

That would be your best bet is to have your dealer locate one with the options you want.

I don't know of any search engine other than what Ford has on their site. Then again you would have to keep changing zips until you found what your wanted.

Thanks guys.. I know there's nothing within 100 miles of me, I'm willing to go 4-500+ miles, but don't want to make a deal on a car that far away sight unseen and have the dealer DX it, which will cost money. Either the incoming or outgoing deal may not want to DX a vehicle, etc. I'd rather drive and negociate there. I've tried Edmunds before, unfortunately their seach tool is weak. For instance, I want to be able to seach (by order number) for 2011 Expedition, Limited, 4X4, 301A package, Exterior color, interior color, 2nd row buckets, etc. Dealers have that ability to define and search. I just may go to a local dealer and see. thanks....

Why not just get a Zip Code Directory and use Ford's site to search where you are willing to travel?

I've probably seached 50 zip codes already. There are what, 500-600 zip codes in a 400 mile radius? and I seach them one at a time? Not saying it can't be done in a week or so, and hope the I don't miss one... Then I comb through each dealers inventory to look for Black Expeditions, then open the window sticker hypertext to look at each one hoping it has the equipment I want..

Yep. Guess you have a problem, but i'll bet there is not a Ford dealer in every ZIP code. Sorry I could not help you.

Not sure where the OP is located, but here in the Northwest, FORD has done it's homework. You can do what you want at CompareFord.com

Helped me locate the car I really wanted. When I got to a dealership I wanted to work with, I told them about the Expy and they came back and told me it sold. Then tried to sell me different ones they could find. Since I was picky and I declined everything and I wanted the truck for the summer, I was thinking I would just order a new 2012 in the spring. Just as I made that decision, I decided to contact the dealer that had the car I wanted and low and behold it wasn't sold.

I ended up getting that Expy. Just be warned, not all dealers get along out there.

Johnny

Thanks for the tip, looks like it only captures Dealers in the North West / West. I'm on the East coast. 20646. Thanks for trying....

For what it's worth, I struck out. Worked with my local dealer who I've puchased a number of cars from. He did a search and there are exactly ZERO 2011 Expeditions in the entire country that match my search criteria.

2011 Limited (non EL)
Black w/ stone interior
301A
2nd row captains chairs
3.73 gears

Looks like I'l be waiting another year now for a 2013. Growing tired of waiting....

For an non-EL with 3.73 gears, I would think you may need to special order. It looks like you are not in a hurry since you are willing to wait for a 2013, maybe you will have some engine options. The 2012 isn't much different than the 2011.
