Plus, gas is cheaper than diesel here right now and has been for about a year. But we probably won't be buying for a couple of months so things may change.
We can't know the future so prudent people do what they have to do for today.
A Diesel is more hassle than you can imagine. You can't just jump in one today and drive it three or four miles to the Grocery Store, take it to the Mall, drop the kids off at practice, etc.
They need to be run. Diesels are made to run.
A HD Truck means HD maintenance and HD Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH). Not to mention HD fuel consumption and HD Parking and HD Pain In The A%$*
If you need one, there's no substitute. You gotta have one -- But ONLY if you need it.
If you don't, all you're doing is flushing money down the toilet so you can look like a Cowboy Cadillac. Nonsense.
An F-150 is ALL you need.
Back in 2013, I paid $30k Out The Door for my Coyote V8 (360HP, 380lb-ft Torque) Super Cab and it's not worth much less today. Right now.
Usually, March is when the Dealers start to panic and blow the 2015s off the lot. Sometimes April. But they will.
IF they have any leftovers. The new Aluminum bodies are flying off the lots. But I wouldn't worry about that. Wait until you can get a deal.
If you can get by with a Super Cab, do it. I often wish I had gone to a Screw but then I wonder why I think that. Lots more money.
Speaking of which, be prepared. You're gonna be shocked when you go shopping for a new F-150.
