Wait and make an informed decision. From personal experience I purchased a 2003 6.0 and was the worst vehicle purchase of my life, but with that being said the 6.0 was a brand new engine that had to comply with new emission standards. I think you will be okay since majority of the truck has been tested by consumers. Just focus your research on the new transmission because that has the least testing.. Just my two cents.

Like a few other's have said, you might as well wait to see what they announce at the Detroit show. At least that way you will not be kicking yourself in the butt, if they do announce some great new things that will be of interest to you. Myself, I just ordered the 2019, I am not sure I want to be testing out the new 10 speed tranny and some of those spy shots I seen, showed some sort of aerodynamic piece on the rear of the cab roof that I would not like. I really like the current design and I am not going to worry if the 2020 unit has some more horsepower and torque, as I feel the current model is a great truck overall. It will be interesting to see what changes they will be making though. ;-)

People should be smart enough to realize that product development is done over YEARS. Not just 9 months. Yes, there will be bugs or issues that develop over time during initial roll-out. Even the "iconic" 7.3L had issues throughout it's life span.



That 10spd transmission is already built, has been bench tested, under going in-vehicle testing, adjustments being made to tuning control parameters....etc etc etc.



Anyone want to see a 2006 6.4L motor?? Proof enough for me when it rolled into my buddy's shop.

MrTommy has the right idea. There will ALWAYS be something better available as soon as you buy.

I build homes and I tell my home buyers, There will always be a better hot water heater. But as long as you get up in the morning and have hot shower, You are happy. The first morning you get up and have a cold shower, You will want to buy a new one. Get what ever is state of the art for the day you buy and stop worrying about something better tomorrow. How many days are you willing to take a cold shower while you wait?

If you need a truck, Buy what is available today and consider it a hot shower.

I would recommend getting the 19, then waiting for the electric true 4 wheel drive that will make our 'beefy' trucks look like dinosaurs... stick a diesel generator in it, plug it in and be able to run it all day... while answering posts on this forum as it self drives.... my .02.. hehe

I kept my 06 F350 std cab 6.0 4x4 XLT for 11 years, sold it and bought my 2017 F350 CC Lariat and am sooo glad I did. It was a new truck, but the body shares the same panels as the F150s save the front end, hood and front fenders. The engine and trans were time-tested. The 17 was a quantum leap over the 06. I'm sure in another 10 years the new truck will be light years ahead of the 17. Manufacturers will always add a few "goodies" to the new model year to entice sales. As for the 10 speed trans, we will see in the next couple years.

I ordered a 2019 6.7L on sept 29th 2018 - it was delivered to the dealership 30 days later. I expected it around Thanksgiving and hoped it would come in just before - I was driving it October 30TH. the 6 to 12 week thing is farsical. you might end up with it sooner and there aren't many rebates above $1500 most are 1000

Ford is pretty proud of their stuff and doesn't offer many rebates or 'deals'. That is saved for all the rest of the truck sellers who are constantly playing catch-up.

My opinion, of course.

2016 F-350 Lariat Crew Cab long bed. Highway Products Pickup Bed installed. Hulivators when kayaking is in season. Added the Banks iDash gauge. Swapped out stock chrome grill for a Raptor style flat black grill. Recon headlights. Baja Designs LED Fog Lamps

That's crazy you got it that quick! Hopefully the one I ordered mid November comes that quick. Shutdown for Thanksgiving and Christmas will slow it some but I'd be happy if I got it first part of January. We'll see.

I've seen some pretty good dealer discounts on the 2019 f250's, surprised me a little considering we arent even in 2019 yet. $8K-9k on top of the $1k Ford rebate. Unfortunately for me, they arent local dealers. The dealers near me arent offering much more than $4k off of even the 18's. Although 18''s get a $2500 Ford rebate.
