Ford Expedition XLT
The SPC Governing Board recently approved the third and final contract extension with Landmark Ford for the 2015 Ford Expedition XL 4×4 Special Services Vehicle. The duration of the extension is October 5, 2014 through October 4, 2015; however, the Expedition XLT was excluded from the extension as Ford Motor Company had not announced price adjustments. The SPC recently received the adjustments, which have been approved as follows:
Please note that most purchases on the contract are for the lower priced Ford Expedition XL model ($27,188.00), with only a handful of Expedition XLTs purchased each year.
