I am replacing my 2022 F350 Platinum with 26000 miles. I can replace it with an identical truck .... 9 months newer and 1/2 the mileage for $4000 difference .... or, for $14,500 (CAD) difference I can pick up a new 2023 high output Platinum that I ordered months ago that has finally come in.

Last week we purchased a "used" 2023 Ram 2500 Hemi with ~9k miles so some more shattered respect. We really didn't need it, but the price was good. My wife (she wrote the check) and I picked it up and drove it to the farm. Rides pretty smooth.


What is this RV Community coming to??? Next thing ya know I will be buying Sailun's.

For as often as you trade, I think getting a '24 makes the most sense. The '23 your about to get will be in a couple months or since the '24's are already out, it already is, a year old (depends on if your going by calender year). You lose one year's deprecation for a couple months worth of use. I personally try never to get a new vehicle within the last six months of the current model year. Since you trade as often as you do, it would seem to be even more important. I ordered a '24 that is supposedly being built (I do have a VIN number now I guess), assuming it comes in December, I will get a full year's use before I depreciate due to model year. I do the same thing with heavy equipment.

^^^ Full disclosure: ….. The dealership has called and they have two of the 2023 Platinums that my brother and I ordered in. His 2022 is 9 months newer and has half the mileage on it compared to mine. He is offered 4k more for his, so it is an option for us to just flip one of the trucks. …. Don’t think that’s going to happen. We plan on taking them both.

^^^How old is your current one? I’m not wanting you to put yourself in my shoes. I’m wanting to understand how others will view a sudden huge price increase from one year to the next. So I want to know if you were going to be buying a truck now would want to avoid the 2023 on account of the huge price increase or do the upgrades justify the cost in your way of thinking.
I guess I’m not qualified to answer your question because even if I was going to buy a “new” truck today, the one I’d buy would be at least 3 or 4 years old ( or as in the case of my current truck - I get a fire sale, moving out of the country tomorrow, smokin hot deal).


I like the "get a smokin hot deal" idea .... do they only come by once every 20 years? It would be great if you could take advantage of more of those smokiin hot deals.


There are no more "smokin hot deals." People don't underprice what they have because they don't know what it's worth anymore. It's so easy to get a value online and any vehicle dealer will do a free appraisal for you if you're willing to put up with a few cold calls. Even on the off chance you're not tech savvy you know someone who is and ask them to get you a value.

It's the world of the "I know what I have. No lowballers."

If it's being sold cheap, there's something wrong with it that they're not telling you. That or it's stolen. You HAVE to assume that to protect yourself.

1. I’m not getting the kind of discount I got in the past

4. My wife likes the massage seats and the dealer opted to delete the massage seats in order to get the order pulled
5. I actually don’t care for many of the changes they’ve made to the truck.


Your answer comes from number 4 above. Keep the current truck!

After 4, I rank all others supporting 4.

Since you asked "what would you do", I'd also be in the Option 3 category - keep what you have. I used to be a new every year/every other year guy. But that was a long time ago. Brand new every year just isn't important to me, especially in current times with high interest rates (assuming you are financing that type of purchase).

If you do go new, I'm curious as to your report of how much seat of the pants difference the HO engine makes over the standard.

Something I thought of on this. The 23 being as you are getting this when the 24's are already out. You get an extra 20k miles before it will be high mileage! You're at zero miles, as are 24's.
You drive alot of miles per year iirc, that could another benefit vs the used rig with half the miles.
Also based on last post......keep the one you have until a 24 or 25 model has options you want.

As for me, I've got another 3-5 yrs before I'll be ready to trade in the 14.

^^^ I think the high trim level ‘23s were not shipped to Canada until very recently. I’ve been told we won’t see ‘24s here for a very long time.

Have you considered what’s behind door number 3 also?

Assign the sale of your preordered ‘23 for current market price and end up with the ‘22 for free, possibly with cash in hand to boot.


I have considered the possibility of a door number 3. It would be similar to what you're suggesting but would likely look more like take delivery of the '23 now and if I'm not happy with it after running it for 6 months or so I could sell it and buy a '22.


Yup, same, but different. LOL.
