I agree. I'm going to have to do a 19 sport swap on my 2020 7.3 silver spruce. No big deal.

Even though I am in the market for a new 2019 or wait for the 2020 but not that excited , it takes a few years to work out the bugs in any new truck thats why I am leaning towards the 2019 but its just starting to work out all the bugs and they want to going and change the truck again ... There starting all over again ... LOL

Just as an FYI you can retro the raptor steering wheel into 17-19 super duty and get paddle shifters, I've been thinking of doing it.

That's a nice thing about options you don't have to buy them.
Even though I said I didn't like automatic braking in my post #34, I am well aware that I have that when I use ACC..........and like motocamper I think the ACC is great !!

I use the ACC frequently when towing our 5th wheel and other times, but mostly on Interstate or wide open 4 lane roads. If I see a problem where it might slam on the brakes, all I have to do is touch my brake pedal to disengage the ACC.

If someone slows to get off of the interstate, the automatic braking will slow the truck, and once the car is off in the deceleration lane, our truck will pick back up speed.

I have found that if a car pulls in front of me, as long as the car is moving away from my truck, the ACC automatic braking usually does not engage.

But to have automatic braking on all of the time on the narrow curvy roads around here just doesn't cut it for this ol' boy.

I appreciate that, but I can't do that because my truck has the adaptive steering option.

I wonder if you are going to get satellite radio or any other signal with a camper on with the new antennas.

Every vehicle I have had with cruise had a warning about using cruise in city or high traffic areas.

Do the SDís have a sensitivity setting?
my wifeís Lincoln has 3 or 4 levels (distance).

She uses it all the time on the mid setting.
I used the lowest setting and frequently turn it off.
Never fails, it will function smoothly and I didnít notice we were down 5-10 mph from my cruise.

Someone mentioned the Volvo VNL
The newest adaptive is tied into the GPS for among others things, topography.

Volvo claims the truck will maintain set speed up, cresting and down hills.

I bet tow/haul locks out a few gears...

I saw the 2020 is lowered compared to the 17-19 trucks - is this Fords attempt to correct the DW issues maybe?

It might be but I thought the lowered 2020s was to make it easier for towing.

I would assume that if it was for ease of towing they would have lowered the 350 as well. From the video that was posted it was only the 250 that was lowered.

Just the F-250s, I bet Ford comes out with a lifted version to compete with the Power Wagon.
