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.

^^^ I was trying to keep the discussion going, to see if I could get some responses more like:
If I was in the market for a new or near new $80k or $90k truck, I'd value miles at $.25/mile ($90k truck divided by 360,000 miles). So 28,000 miles is worth $7k. The HO engine is a $2500 option but I'd only be willing to pay $1000 for it. 2 additional years of warranty is worth $300 .... new tires $400. Going to the new style truck is worth $1500 cuz I'm going to get that back when I trade it 8 years down the road anyway. I come up with $10,200 difference between a new '23 vs a two year old '22. I'd flip a coin.

^^^ Marty, let me put the question to you another way: Imagine you are considering replacing your 2014 Chevy with a new to you diesel. After shopping around you narrow it down to two different trucks. On one side of the street you could buy a 2022 Ford F350 Platinum with 35000 miles on it for $70k and on the other side of the street there is the upgraded 2023 Ford F350 Platinum high output with only 10,000 miles on it for $80k.... which truck would look more appealing to you?


With what you just said, the 23.
With that said, I don't nor will I buy a fully loaded truck like that. So reality is, neither truck would be on my list! If it was more mid trim, cloth seats, etc, I'd buy that one for $10k less.
I saw a 14 when I bought mine, it was a base work truck model with half the miles, $3k more than the one I bought. I would have preferred that one over my LT! Sales rep would not go look to see if it had the G80 locker option. My guess is that it did! But I wasn't going to drive 80 miles into a 25f typical Puget sound snow storm to open a glove box.

2022 and $10K to buy fuel. Especially if you're just going to turn around and buy a 2024 in less than a year.


I thought you didn't like the idea of flipping a truck every year? Why buy the '22 if you're just going to flip it for a '24 next year? (you're starting to sound as nutty as me) I thought maybe a guy like you might be more interested in buying the '23 and keeping it for longer? Also would it make any difference to you if you saw the $83,000 window sticker of the '22 and the $97,300 window sticker of the '23. In other words, after seeing the window stickers, would you be willing to pay 84% of MSRP to buy a 2 year old truck knowing that you could get a 6 month old unit for 82% of MSRP.

As someone that buys new, used to be something every three years, every ten years I traded that rig in......it took a multiple of things to decide when and where I might change out.

From what you have said, I do not see it worth trading. Other than a few more HP/Torque. Frankly I dont see the reason to trade in. Especially if power wise, the current rig works. If you went from a 6-10 sp trans too, along with some other asst odds and ends. Sure, it begins to be worth while.
I find it takes about 5 years before enough add ons are at a minimum to trade in.

So... you want strangers on the internet to tell you their opinions on the value of changes from the previous year model of the same truck to justify your decision to keep spending money on a depreciating asset? And you feel that someone other than YOU is "missing something"?

Maybe you are right, cause I feel like I've been missing a lot in this thread...


Yes. I am interested in how strangers on the internet value the changes on the new Super Duty.... that's why I asked the question. What, in your opinion, am I missing?

Did anyone easy get a chuckle out of this thread, in that our resident expert on on all things truck(HP, torque rise, towing etc) starts a thread asking what people think about regarding the purchase of a new truck!

I'm not sure I'd call him a resident expert on all things, when he has clearly never owned a truck ling enough to do simple routine maintenance...
