Hands down my favorite trim package right now. What kind of financing terms did they offer you? They're doing 0% for 72 on the 2020 F150's I believe, haven't seen anything note worthy on the SD's.

Although Ford continues to dominate the "heavy duty" light truck market, they do it without "buying" it with huge sales incentives, etc. It's bad enough that such trucks are so expensive, but this is maybe Ford's most profitable product line. It all comes down to supply and demand.

It sure makes those $35K F150's attractive for the regular man that's going to limit his towing to a bass boat or light trailer. There again, I've long said that 1/2 ton trucks are just for looks--with the springing of an old Crown Victoria.

But I have a 24' boat and a fifth wheel trailer--the second of which is barely towable by a 3/4 ton truck even. I do have the 7.3 engine--that was one of the last old generation diesels made 17 1/2 years ago. It still runs great at only 155K miles. I would love to have the new F250 7.3, however.

Nice looking
what is the tow capacity?
I have been looking at almost the same truck but not sure what it can pull
The sales person says fine, but the book says NO
My rig on the trailer is at 16K
From what I can find on line the only gasser that will pull that is the Ram with a 4.10 rear
while the Ram is nice, I like the stance of the Super Duty
