New truck ordered

Hey guys ordered a 2019 Lariat Diesel on the weekend to be delivered into Ontario.
Does anyone have any idea on the delivery period?
Dealer figured 2 or 3 months.

Thanks

On another forum someone did a .pdf on order to build to delivery and it is recent so it might give you an estimate. There doesn't seem to be any uniformity so the future date is going to be just a wild guess. By the way, congratulations!

The .pdf is attached to this post. Range goes from 38 days to 83.

Thanks, the average of those is about 2 months.

And thanks, I have wanted the diesel for a while. I drive about 50,000kms - (30,000) miles, mostly highway per year. Tow a 4000 lb boat once in a while. I got to drive a diesel for a week and it averaged about 20% better fuel economy then the 2.7 gas I had. I liked how the engine drove and live on a farm so have some other advantages to having diesel truck.

Thanks, looks like there is lots to learn here.
Im trying to figure out a few things, if I need to run an additive, how much oil changes will be, how often it will regen etc.
Looks like the forum will be a good source.

What model year was your 5.0, and what were you getting for fuel economy with it city, highway, towing?

I ask because I was on the fence with the 5.0 vs 3.0. I am very happy with the 3.0 and it seems to be the right truck for my usage.

Thanks

KD, interesting question and I can give you my experience as I still have a 2013 5.0 XLT. Close to 110,000 miles and burns no oil. It has been a great truck, that is why I kept it instead of trading it in. Anyway, towing my 5,500 pound camper I am down at about 9.5. Around town it is 15 and highways 19. Not great numbers.

@Dunrollin thanks for sharing your mpg numbers on your 5.0.

My 2010 5.4 KR that I traded in was towing my 4,500 pound boat at about 11.5, around town 14 and highways 18. My 2018 3.0 tows the same boat at 17+, and so the 3.0 is delivering well for me as it seems to be doing 4-5 (6+ on highway) mpg's better than my 5.4 in all driving situations.

My 2010 was mechanically sound and had 18xK miles, but it had the F150 rust issue behind the rear door at the bottom of the back of the cab that spread forward eating away at the rocker panels, so I was happy to trade up when I did and almost had an issue doing so because of that rusting out situation. Up here in the north country they put down lots of salt on the winter roads that wreaks rust havoc on vehicles.

Good to hear as I just procured a 2019 5.0 F150 4x4 for my friend today. He likes it so far.
