Well, this past winter there was a couple days that was -40Celcius (-40Ferenheit) and my truck was sitting outside not plugged in for 10 hours and she fired up no problems. So unless it is super cold in Pennsylvania these days, I dont think it has anything to do with the temperature outside. Is the Check engine Light on?

Dealer it, that is not normal, might be a bad coil. Warranty will cover it but expect to leave your truck over night so it can be cold, see also if you can schedule a day you know will be cold the next morning. Ask to be there when they start it as you want to confirm what your getting.
