2019 or 2020?

Hello all. Unfortunately was out on a call the other night and some low life broke into our firehouse. They took a bunch of our stuff then found my keys. Ran off in my mint 2000 F250 7.3 manual. They found it the next morning burned to a crisp.
I’m looking at new trucks. I like to keep my vehicles for a long time. There are two 2019 trucks left that meet what I really like in the area. I should be able to get them at invoice minus the $3500 in Ford rebates. Around 64,000 for a lariat that is fairly loaded. So the decision to buy this one or order up a 2020 comes into play. Should I hold out a few months for the 2020? New transmission with 10 speeds and more HP and torque?
This is all costing me a ton of money that I wasn’t really needing to do since my 7.3 was perfect. So I’m trying to make a good decision.

Well either one will suit you fine I hope. Do you want the 2020 HP/TQ improvements and a 10spd?? That 2019 will seem to be light years away from your 7.3L so adding 50hp/100FT-TQ (???)might not really be noticeable in a 2020. The 2020 won't be here till like December or January....can you wait??

So sorry to hear about that. Just chaps my hide to hear of people who think it's ok to do this sort of thing!! I hope your insurance is helping you out. Remember you can fight with your ins if their offer isn't fair for what you had.

Anyway, I ordered my '17 and it was really nice to get it as close to what I wanted as possible. But these trucks are all pretty nice so you just have to decide what you want. something on the lot will likely be cheaper than ordering.

I’ve driven the 6.7 a lot since my father owns one. They are definitely nice. I know the 2019 will be more than I will ever need.
I was just thinking since the 2020 is right around the corner and it has the new 10 speed plus some more power should I wait for it.
Do the new trucks need a 10 speed? I’ve heard the new engine improvements give some extra mpg as well? I also saw that the truck will be a little lower to the ground. Not really wanting that 😕 I like how the 19 sits.

Wow this story sucks man.

If you get the 2020 than there will be no rebates. So if you want to save $3,500 I would get the 19. it's still a very nice truck to be sure wouldn't be a mistake ether way.

Your story, and others, is why I keep my keys with me. I put my pants on and my turnouts, just added a layer of Nomex, every time I’m dispatched. Thieves are the lowest of low. Sad for your loss Brother! The 6.7 is light years ahead of our 7.3s and you won’t regret anything about the purchase of a 19 or 20 except the payment

Wow, that sucks is an understatement. I have been looking around to find a good old 7.3, hard to find in decent shape, and those that are in decent shape are selling near the cost, if not more than a late model! If you want to save maintenance costs down the line, the new 7.3 Gas engine will be available, heard it will be a beast and that is stock, and you just know Ford left a lot under the hood for improvements.

When I had to replace my crashed F-150 in 2017, I looked at getting a Superduty, but the costs to maintain the Diesel far outweighed the benefit of owning one, especially compared to the old 7.3 I had. Worse mistake I ever made was getting rid of it.

Also, keeping your keys with you will deter your brother firefighters from messing with your ride, changing your radio presets, etc. not that I have ever pulled off things like that😁
