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.

Congrats on the new truck order as well. I had a 5.0 before this one and I really the fuel economy of the new diesel.

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.

The 2015 I had was a SC Lariat, 6.5 box 3.31 axle. The dash was giving me a modest reading of 13.1 LPH (18MPG) but the best hand calculated number I could achieve was 15 LPH (15.6MPG). That was 90% summer highway driving no remote starts and no towing.

Just have a question on powerstroke warranty.
In reading the details it looks like we get full engine and powertrain up to 160,000 km (100,000) mile?
The dealer was trying to sell me extended warranty as they said it was engine only but I dont think she knew what she was talking about. As it is very clear in the powerstroke warranty.

If this is accurate it really makes the diesel option a lot cheaper. If you were to pay for that on a gas engine you would be a few extra thousand no problem.

Its something I think that gets overlooked by a lot of people when buying a new truck and just looking at the cost of the engine but not the extra warranty.

It is reassuring as my last 2 trucks (2016 and 2012 ecoboost) they both started making grinding noises around 100,000 km and it ends up being a vacuum leak that lets the front hubs partially engage while in 2wd. It is quite a common problem if you google it and according to the powerstroke warranty it would be covered to 160,000.

@Lariat1 - please read thru the Powerstroke Warranty thread where the 5yr/100K Engine warranty is discussed in detail, including how to verify this fact via your VIN-specific OASIS report.

@Lariat1 - congrats on getting your VIN = things are real now!

You should receive delivery in 30-45 days, unless there are more freight delays like there were again in May/June 2019 (don't ask me why I know this)

Picked up the new truck on the weekend. Towed the boat today to the lake and was quite impressed with the power and mileage of it compared to my 2.7 that I traded in.
So far so good.
