I just test drove one------ and ordered one.

Turbo lag is way better than my '16. Power on acceleration is great... Steering feels good. My '16 is too loose and the '17 I had was too tight.


There are ZERO within 5 hours of me to test drive... My dealer called me last night ( while I was out of state ) to tell me they just dealer traded for one from WV and it was on it's way there.

Figures, I was out of state...I have found 1 or 2 of the 6.7, but I want the same trim as well to test drive..
Even know I already ordered, I am am getting ITCHY


That's strange.....there's LOTS of them on dealer lots around here. [emoticon]

Driving home from work today I went out of my way to pass another dealer that I know... they had gotten a delivery in last night and there was a King Ranch and a Platinum..

I talked the sales manager into letting me take it for a spin around the parking lot... That thing is sweet for sure....

I agree that buying a new truck every 3 years makes no sense at all. They are expensive, they last and they depreciate.

I bought a 2002 Ford 7.3 new and I am still driving it because there is nothing wrong with it. It is dependable and now it is going up in value. I paid $35k and it is worth close to $20k.



Buying new never makes sense and usually the more often you replace the truck the higher your costs will be. If I was replacing an 18 year old 7.3 today with one like I'm driving I'd have to dish out at least $50k. As it is I've spent a total of 80k upgrading several times over the last 18 years. So assuming I could have run a 2002 all this time I could be 30k richer right now had I not been trading my trucks so often. 30k over 15 years is not a big deal to me at this point in my life.

My 2020 should be in sometime early to mid March, my first tow is mid April. I will know at that point if there is a noticeable difference from the “15” to the 2020


Be sure to post your review after you pull with it.
I live in central PA (Clearfield county) I am very happy with my 16 6.7, but am intersted in your opinion of the 20 since we likely travel some of the same routes at times.

Your backing skills are exemplary, but not your math.
If I’d claimed I could average $2k/year depreciation by trading up, I wouldn’t have written a paragraph admitting I’d be $7k a year into it!


I don’t think he said anything about depreciation per se, he’s just comparing cash outlay.

4x4ord-If I’m following your numbers you were really only $3k (63k v 60k) worse off over the ten-year period, correct?

That's right. The mistake that many people make with their math is they figure they're constantly putting out cash to up grade one way. So they spend 118k over 10 years. (55k to start with and 63k upgrading) Then they consider keeping the same truck for 10 years and think "I paid 55k for that 2010 truck and I can sell it for 20k today, so it only cost them 35k." The thing is, after selling the truck in the second scenario he needs to spend 80k to buy a new truck again to get to where he would be in the first scenario.
