Hi Everyone! I'm Austin and I own a 2018 F-150 King Ranch 6.5" bed FX-4 diesel. I absolutely love it. I've owned 4 previous F-150s and this is the best. I now have 12,900k miles. So I'm wondering. How many sought out their diesel and how many found one on the lot and happened to be diesel?

Cheers!

@LionKingRanch - Let me first welcome you to our little corner of the Internet here in DieselF150Forum!

I factory-ordered my 2018 F150 Platinum FX4 in Feb 2018 and did not take delivery until last September 2018. Having previously owned a 2010 Platinum and 2015 Platinum, you can tell what truck brand I like.

When I bought my 2015, I wasn't planning on buying a new truck as my daughter was starting college in the Fall of 2015, but the dealer made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I do remember wishing that they had a diesel engine option in 2015 but I was a little too early... When Ford came out with the new 3.0L PowerStroke option for the 2018 models, I got my dealer to flip their first F150 Diesel order for their dealership into my factory order.

In retrospect, my 2018 F150 Platinum was my easiest purchasing experience, as I mentioned I wanted my current exact truck (2015) just with the 3.0L PowerStroke to my Service Manager, and when I stopped in two (2) weeks later he told me that my truck had been ordered = they pulled the order for my 2015 Platinum and changed their existing 2018 F150 Diesel order for their dealership into what became my 2018 F150 Platinum Diesel.

It was waiting 8 months for my 2018 Platinum to be built and delivered that was excruciating: Anyone else in the same boat?

Welcome! I checked around looking for a left over and found Ruby. I was looking for a Platinum but didn't want a sunroof and there she was. I have a 2013 XLT with 109,000 miles and Ruby has a long way to go to beat those trouble free miles but so far so good.

Nice looking truck. My first/last F150 was a 1983 so looking forward to driving mine once we can travel again. Its at my farm in a building since the day I brought it home. Wasn't looking for a diesel but too good of a deal to pass up. 14 months old with 22,600 miles. Previous owner traded it in for a Dodge Durango so I bought it from a Dodge/Jeep dealer.

My last truck was a 2008 F350 DRW King Ranch so glad to be back in the saddle so to speak.
