I sure hope we can buy the in bed 7/12 pin connector and retrofit it to the '17-'19s. I would love a Ford part of that - assuming it's plug and play. Not sure why they didn't do that in '17.

Whatever those two little black boxes are on top of the cab, Ford certainly went through a great deal of trouble to constantly hide them from the competition...

I really need to stay out of these threads. Iím wanting a new truck more and more each day. The 7.3 is about the most perfect motor for me. Iím wanting power to tow my camper, payload of an HD, donít care much about fuel economy.

I hope the automatic emergency braking can be turned off.

I don't want my truck slamming on the brakes every time I encounter something like that. Warn me, but don't slam on the brakes.

I may be wrong, but I think this is just the safety system where it only applies emergency braking when you apply the Brahe yourself, it just gives the truck the ability to apply more brakes than you input in order to avoid a collision.

Ford states that if the driver doesn't act as it deems necessary, the brakes can be applied automatically.

I have adaptive cruise. My collision warning goes off often when cruise is not activated. Iíve never had my truck brake without my input.

I had been convinced I'd buy a 2020 GMC HD, now I might end up with the Ford again. 7.3 or 6.7? It will depend on the numbers and MPG when towing.

Let's hope this is available in July. Whatever truck is on the lot first is what I'll buy.
GM is pulling a fast one with there new 2020 GM Allison 10speed transmission is not really a Allison ... They own the rights to the name and that 10 speed is a GM Transmission ... They are actually putting the 6 speed Allison 1000 thats in the current trucks in there new 4500 and 5500 .
Talk about pulling a fast one .
I hope Fords new 10 speed is based off there current 6 speed which is a really good transmission .

It'll brake by itself, mine has done it twice.

I'd like to see Lariat Super Cab models be eligible for the same options offered in Crew Cabs. LED Lights, Adaptive Cruise etc ..

I was speaking of the 2020's braking by themselves. I am unaware of whether or not the 17-19 trucks have automatic braking

I've been in a truck with preloaded braking assist. Went to pass a slow vehicle on a two-lane road, hit the gas hard to get around and was just about in the oncoming lane, then the slow driver turned his left signal on. I quickly moved from the gas to brake (didn't need emergency braking, just wanted to slow down and abort). Well, the truck gave me 100% braking power and sent the truck into a massive nose dive. I was furious. I was under the impression that I was the operator of the vehicle. I am not a fan of a vehicle taking over certain functions based on computer programming.

Frankly, IMO, it screwed up a bunch of things. It should get back to the original standard.

Remember the 'half years' ? In particular the 70-1/2 Ford Falcon comes to mind...but there were many others...

If they are 'sky sensitive' (as opposed to, say, a CB antenna that needs 'horizontal visibility', why not mount them on the mirror tops ??

I prefer the look of the current '19s myself.

But that's just me.
