As Aric stated, the new XT22 will probably provide a better boating experience and more room, but your price drop off the lot will be more Thant heavily discounted Star.
If you flip boats a lot , consider that in advance.
However selling any X-Star from that Gen is a hard process.

If you are keeping the boat for 3-5 years, just buy what you want
I would lean toward the XT22

Yes, we are ordering an xt22 with the 5500 GDI. I think it will be a very good fit for us. Looking forward to the summer.

Good choice. That's my choice as well.

I'm just reading this thread so I learn more about the prior gen x*. I really like the way they look after taking the big X off and the dashes. No offense to anyone but I've never liked the hips and that genX hides them pretty well after deducting stickers.

I realize the new X is a better boat in just about every way but I think it lost something when it gained all that betterness. And there are some very good deals on the gen3*s.

I had the same comparison and ended up choosing the XT22 as well. It’ll be built next month.

Personally I was never a fan of the previous Gen Xstar. We used it at a few comps and the wakeboard wake was finicky. People will argue that it can be clean, but its 2018, it should work out of the box for everyone. While the 7.4L motor was powerful, it was super loud and shook the whole boat. Men love it, women not so much. I always felt that even if I was give the option to trade my X-30 straight across, I never would.

I mean lets be honest, even though the previous X Star and G23 were released at the same time, with similar price points there is a reason I see 15-20 G's on my lake and 1 Xstar when our lake always had a lot of MC's. People might come in to defend it, but if I were spending that kind of dough I wouldn't buy a used boat with an outdated hull that never had a great rep and sold poorly.
