Don't you know wait is a four letter word?I would wait a year for the 2020 model with 7.3L gas engine. Trying to nurse my 19 year old daily drive along till ordering opens up.
There are several reasons why I don't wait and get a 2020.
I think that the 6.2/6 speed combo has proven itself to be pretty reliable, nobody knows how reliable the new engine and trans will be. Maybe it will, but I don't feel comfortable with it.
Who knows if the new engine will be available as soon as the 2020s are available to order. It could be delayed.
My kids are still young, but times a waisting!
I can get a good deal on a 2019 now. MSRP for the build I listed in the first post is $47765. I am at $37748 after rebates, before TTL.
I also like the grill and headlights on the 2019s better.
