Default Why are the 2020 trucks late coming to Market?

Usually by September everyone has their new model year trucks available and cars. I'm dying to see the 2020 Ford Super Duty but no such luck.

my concern is my 2015 Super Duty is getting up there in mileage at 85000 and I really want to proceed with a new truck before the mileage gets anymore. I do know Ford is behind and Chevy is behind haven't heard much from Ram on there 2020 trucks. Just seems a little odd there is no breathtaking changes or body styles that is holding this up. And when there is it usually is introduced early as the next model year

The '20 GM HD trucks have been out a while now. I think the fords are later than usual because they are introducing a new gas motor and I think they had to do some last minute changes to beat the new GM towing numbers.

2020 Super Duties should be hitting dealerships in early December.

Care to elaborate? Iíve got a 2015 Platinum with 82k miles Iíve been considering trading. I stopped by the dealership today to look, but nothing really jumped out at me.

Iíve been trying to buy a Ď19 F350 CC SRW LWB Platinum in white but canít get them to deal. No way Iím paying what they want when the 20ís are coming with better engine performance, a new transmission and upgraded technology. Take a depreciation hit driving it off the lot and another a month later when the 20ís hit the lot. Maybe when they start inventoryingí20ís theyíll deal.

I can't comment about when they will be available, but I will say that at my work we have nice 6.7PSD trucks with nine of them having only 200k miles and they have been quite reliable considering how they are used. I don't think you will have any issues with an 85,000 mile truck unless it has a history of being unreliable.

I ordered a new Ford F150 Platinum last month. It's not due in until the end of December or beginning of January. At that time they didn't have a schedule date for the 250's.

Just purchased a new '19 F250 diesel FX4. Spent MUCH less than advertised and purchased thru Mullinax NSB. My commercial guy knows how to make the deal happen.

Ford is great at bringing models out really early and really late in the year! Sometimes the F150’s will come out in July, sometimes December! I think a lot depends on the amount if changes being made, changes in CAFE rules or how the model year affects the total. Growing up every manufacturer had new car intro days in September, now intro’s are almost year round!

Donít know why they are coming out so late but 85k on a superduty, youíre just breaking it in. If you want a new truck thatís cool but 85k especially if itís a diesel is nothing. I have a 2005 Ram 2500 diesel and Iím up to 261,000 miles and itís still going strong.

It sounded like he was more worried about value of veh. ONLY having 85k on it, Maybe a break in value over 100 K .

I would have the same concern buying a 2019 during the 2020 model year. When you get rid of it it's considered a 2019 no matter what day you bought it for resale value.

My guess, they are all waiting on the other to blink and deliver a product so they can tweak theirs to show they have superior power, towing, HP, torque...

These trucks are so strong now, and all are marginally better than the other in some category. It really comes down to brand loyalty or best price the consumer can get.

All specs have been announced and all are certified. They just aren't showing up on the lots.
