    I’m kinda torn. Optimally, I’d like the 2017 TRD pro in cement. With the current incentives the 2019’s are almost the same price as the 2017’s. Suggestions?

    Cement would be the best color of those choices. How many miles are you seeing on the 17s?

    2017 does not have the safety sense stuff. I am not going to say which is better, you decide that, I'm just informing you in case you were not aware.

    I’ve seen one with <7k seller is firm at $40k
    Working with dealer on a 27k for $36.5k haven’t heard back yet.
    Carmax has one with a color matched cover with 20k Miles for $40k
    There are others but those were at the top of my list. Feel like the car max is high. The cab cover is not a desired option but does look nice.
    All of them require traveling at least 5 hours away also. Should I just be a little patient. Time is definitely on my side.

    Thanks. I didn’t realize. Some of it I like some of it I don’t. I have an ‘18 sr 4 cylinder right now with it.

    2020 has forward camera for parking and offroading, apple carplay, power seats. Also hasn't depreciated yet.

    Good points, but having seen the camera's lackluster performance and happy with my '18 seats, carplay is the only thing I would pay a few bucks to have. OP's MMV.


    My vote - Black '19.

    Along with/as part of safety sense, the ‘18s and newer come with radar cruise, which I really appreciate.

    I hate the radar cruise. It is so nice and smooth I never realize I slowed down and am just chillin behind gma. I do enjoy the stopping before hitting stuff and the pay attention dumbasss alarm.

    For the ‘20 vs. the ‘17
    the power seats and color and sunroof I could go either way. I’m prolly equal torn. I think it mainly just comes down to the $ because they all kick ass and I’m splitting hairs. The safety feature is what may push it over the edge. Perhaps not. Time for more research.

    IMO 2019 > 2017 for sure. 2020 or 2019 is personal decision if 5k is worth apple carplay/android auto, LED lights, etc...

    What are your plans for it?
    Are you going to be heading for the mountains, pin striping the paint in the bush, crawling over rocks?
    Or are you sticking to forest service roads and pavement?
    It would be painful wrecking the paint job on the new 2020 Pro.

    2019 and put a fraction of the cost difference in to an aftermarket head unit, maybe head lights if you really want them.

    The apple carplay/Android auto is worth at least $1,000 IMO. A year newer is worth another $1,000 in your resale value. Not sure what the miles are on '19 or '17 but figure another $1,000 less in resale value per about 10k miles for those. You'd prob also have an extra $1,000 in value with the 2020 being a one owner vehicle. All things considered, you are probably only spending an extra grand or two when you factor in your resale value immediately after purchase. I'd buy new although I will say I have a '17 and LOVE not having all that safety sense BS on my truck.

    Green looks sweet and a modern stereo would take the cake for me. Then again, I would never buy a Pro when an OR could be upgraded for quite a bit less with the same/better components.

    If I were in the market for a 4x4 right now I'd sure as hell be waiting to see the Bronco reveal next month before I bought anything!
