And for all of the interest and clamoring over the years for a F150 diesel... I would have thought they were going to sell better. I also wonder if the Power Boost hybrid plays into this decision

I guess you'll have to either make an exception to your 10th birthday rule and buy one while there are still any left, or wait 10 years to buy the hybrid. Or maybe in 11 years buy the all electric.Well that sux. I'm a guy who never buys a vehicle before its 10th birthday. I was looking forward to the prospect of a diesel powered F150 but that's probably not in my future now.
I'd recommend against any hybrid or full-electric at that age. The battery replacements are seriously expensive. I've owned a 2006 Escape hybrid and a 2010 Prius. The 5-7 year battery life was the end of each.I guess you'll have to either make an exception to your 10th birthday rule and buy one while there are still any left, or wait 10 years to buy the hybrid.
