Just brought home 2020 Ford F250 7.3 gas

Just picked up our new 2020 F250 Lariat 7.3 gas. Wow what a truck! Upgraded from the 2018 F250 6.2. I know I'll hear "should have bought a diesel" from many folks but we really don't need one to pull our rig and I didn't want to pay $8k more*.*

Also for anyone that is curious, the 2020 is about an inch shorter than the 2017-19's should make us nice and level while towing.

Now I can't wait to get out there*!

Nice rig my next truck is going to have the 7.3. I also do not want a diesel the extra cost on top of the extra problems. I tow with the 6.2 now as well. It does alright, but I could always use more power.

X2 but I'm gonna wait till 2021 to get mine so they can work all the bugs out. Mine will be an F-350. Really looking forward to the 10 speed transmission.
Op that is a beautiful truck!

Congrats! I have that “other” 7.3L, but I gotta admit to some truck envy after seeing yours, gas or not. Enjoy!

I feel your gain! You will love the Lariat features. Dealer warned me it would take three mos. to figure out all the features. Try six. One year in and I still find a trick or two. What paint is that?

Nice!

Very nice TV. I have been keeping my eye on the 7.3 since they announced it last year and think it will be a great alternative to a diesel especially as we are looking at a 5th wheel as our next TT. Please keep us posted on how it tows and gas mileage.
