2020 superduty, wait or buy now?

I fell into the rabbit hole of the internet. Before i pull the trigger tomorrow on ordering a 70k 2019 f350 i wanted to see if ford had any changes planed for 2020, and they do. Truck will feature grill/headlight changes along with tailgate tailight changes, some weird roof flair above the 3rd brake light, as well as some interior changes. Also the 6.7l will be updated bringing it over 1000ftlb torque, coupled to a 10 speed automatic trans. Truck is suppsedly going to be unvailed at the north american international auto show next month. My question is Who here would rather wait untill the 2020s are released in 2019 instead of buying the currant version of the superduty right now. Keep in mind im ordering a truck and they told me i mostlikly wont see it untill march because the factory closes for 2 weeks for christmas, plus normal lead time of 8-14weeks.... i know i wasnt happy about buying a 2012 after seeing the changes to the 2013s

I try to avoid first year releases if I can. Thatís what pretty much pushed me off the fence to go ahead and order a Ď19. Iíd been looking at them since 2015...

Its the same truck mostly except the cosmetic changed to the front and back. Motor is mostly the same. I guess the biggest question would be the redesigned 10speed trans (that the f150 currantly has) for the superdtuy

Trannies always seem to be the Achilles heel of the 'Murrican vehicles. I'd have no issue other than that.

The 6.7 has enough torque and a large enough rpm range that I donít really see the benefit of a 10spd tranny.

Probably just another effort to get a diesel pickup to drive like a car. My thing isnt the trans. Im just worried about having buyers remorse with the 19 over the 2020, or it could very welll look like straight crap like the 2019 dodges and chevys do imo.

I don't think the 10 Speed will be able to take the abuse the 6r140 can, and it will be more expensive to build.

The 6.0 had enough torque for a 5 speed and the 6.7 is leaps and bounds ahead of it. I see no need for a 10 speed for use in these trucks, but to each his own.

I wouldn't get the first year. The engine will be fine but I would worry about the trans.
