I always buy the leftover stock of the prior year. I bought my 18 CCSB 350 Limited for $63,000 plus a 10% sales tax in September 2018. (I am Canadian but converted it to USD at the purchase dates exchange rate). I ended up saving about 18,000 CAD and got a soft tonneau cover and mudflaps included. That is the way to get the best deals. On my last 3 trucks, I saved 17-19K off of sticker on each truck. I don’t care what year I have as long as it’s mine from day 1.

I would never buy a new truck in the first year of a powertrain overhaul. The one reason I went with the Ford, former Dodge guy, is because the tranny and 6.7 has been out a while.

That’s just me though. I buy a truck every 5yrs cause I mile them out. (Work has a mileage max in place)

2019

Buy the 2019, let some one else be the guineau pig. I picked up a 2018 at the in June of 2018, King Ranch fully loaded every option for $68,500. Find a good dealer that is willing to work with you. Through the local dealer I was able to get better pricing than through Costco or a local farm co op buying program that is supposed to be great. Shop around. Good luck, I have had mine for a year as of today. 22,000 miles and I lover her still.

So I just couldn't do it. I couldn't leave Ford. I sold my 2012 and bought a 2019 F350 Crew Cab long bed from Tim Dahle Ford. I fly out and drove it back over 2K miles home. I saved a ton and he had the exact truck in stock that I wanted. Here are a few of the things I like / dislike / and I’m not sure of.

I LOVE LOVE the 48 gallon fuel tank The entertainment system seems more responsive and all the cameras come on quicker. The multiple cameras are great....a big help when pulling in tight spaces. For whatever reason the air is cooler than my 2012 ever was. The long bed seems to tow smoother. Love the autolocking tailgate. Transmission seems to shift smoother. 2012 shifted rough when it was brand new.
Dislikes
My deleted 2012 was more powerful and got alot better gas mileage. No a big fan of the new door handle design....just feels cheap to me.
Not sure
The aluminum bed just feels like it will not hold up. When you close the tailgate it feels extremely light.
All in all I love the truck. Hopefully this is a proven powertrain that will last a long time. Thanks to everyone for all the feedback.

I am holding off to get the new 10-speed xmsn, and cast billet pistons. With those upgrades there has to be a significant upgrade in HP and Trq for 2020. I want to hold off to late 2020 model year or even wait for a 2021.

Wife is pushing hard for me to buy a 2019, it is so tempting. I acknowledge the safety in buying a trusted and tried engine and xmsn. I got burned when I bought the new 2003, I love the xmsn but so dislike the sick.0. I do not what to have to fix, band aid, or live with another untested engine.

Then we have the issue of going for a F-350 or buying the hose, the F-450. I have a 5th wheel which will be upgraded in three years, and I know that it will be bigger and heavier than what I have now. Pin weight is already 2300 lbs.

Decisions, decisions, decisions. What am I to do???

2003 F-350 CC SB 4x4.
