Well, I pulled the trigger. I've been researching the 2020's for a while now and figuring what expenses I would have coming up on my current 2013.

I sent emails to 26 dealers within a 55 mile radius of me stating I was interested in ordering a 2020. Only 12 actually emailed back. Out of that 12, 9 started to show interest. In the end only 4 actually sent me quotes for my specs. One even told me that they couldn't give me a price since the price sheets aren't out yet for them to use.....................uuummmmm, I can price it on ford.com. LOL Of course, a couple of them wanted me to purchase a left over 2019, but that's not what I wanted. They wouldn't even discuss 2020's.

I actually searched this year for a 2019 and could never find exactly what I wanted. 3.5 ecoboost, 20" wheels, max tow package, 3.55 rear end.

In the end, it came down to 2 dealers who were about $1k apart.

The order is in and hope to have it delivered in about 7 weeks.

Can't wait!!!

I just ordered one with the xplan yesterday(11/20). I'm being told 8 week delivery. Like you, I could not find one with everything I wanted. The ones on the lot seemed to be loaded up with things I didn't want, or didn't have things on them that I wanted. The xplan made it easier, as a dealer will either accept it or not. No dealing on the price... Lariat, 3.5L, max tow package, 18" wheels, 3:55 rear. Bunch of other stuff too...

Can't wait!

X-plan isn't hard to get. Join the Mustang Club of America, EAA, or a number of other organizations. Most make you wait 60 days. Then go generate a PIN and you're off.

X plan is higher than employee pricing event.

That's true, but the Xplan for Friends and Acquaintances is what I used. Ford employee pricing(the A plan I think) would be another $2200 cheaper. But I don't work for Ford... ;)

They offer it every year don't they? Ya I work for AMDofasco and as a steel supplier all we get is X plan too.

They probably wouldn't give you A plan pricing on an ordered vehicle anyhow during the "employee price event".

I'm guessing no, as the employee pricing events are usually at the end of the model year to clear inventory(July-September or so).

I'll be interested to see how long it takes for you to get it, as you ordered yours three weeks before I ordered mine.

Well, I picked up my new 2020 f150 on January 31st!! Love the truck. Gas mileage so far has been great. About 3-4 MPG more than my 2013. Only issue is that it has been at the dealership all week because the GPS doesn't work. Going on day 5 now and they had to send information to Ford headquarters to see what to do next. GPS never gets a signal. Satellite radio works fine. Thought it was the "Y" splitter for the antenna, but doesn't seem to be. I JUST WANT MY TRUCK BACK!!! LOL

Ouch! The GPS module is in a separate box/module, that can just be removed/replaced. (according to the Raptor forum with the aftermarket Phoenix Android screen)

That sucks that they keep the brand new truck for so long just to diagnose a faulty component.
