Usually when there is a refresh or new model coming, there are large discounts on the existing models to clear the dealership lots.

Although I do really like the exterior of the 2020s, and the rear wheel drive platform. Not buying a first year ford though.

There are worse trucks out there for sure.

Are the front side air scoops functional?

I'm pretty sure that's a negative, but I'll double check tomorrow.


Edit 2: They are functional.

I forgot to mention they tried to sell me the Ford ESP plan which I actually want with all the tech in this thing, but I knew they were going to rip me off. They quoted me 5 years 75K miles for ~$2600.

I just bought a better plan (6 years 85K miles) from Lombard Ford in CT that prides themselves for being one of the top ESP plan dealers out there for $1250. The plan includes pretty much everything including free lost key replacement as well as interior and exterior lighting. (those LEDs are expensive!)

The finance guy says, "oh if you don't buy it today it can be twice as expensive to buy later"...

Not in this case. All new platform that includes switching to RWD, and all new drive trains.

When I bought my Tundra, it was "first year" but the drive train was exactly the same as the older generation. In those cases I don't care if it's a first year model.

I was waxing it today, and noticed I was wrong about those lower front vents. They are functional. They go straight into the wheel well. Couldn't see that until I had it out in the driveway.

I drove it to the car store today to get some wax, and that ecoboost pulls without even trying. It's only got 100 miles on it, so I have yet to actually give it some hell. Merging onto the highway shouldn't be an issue anymore. RIP Honda Van.
