Lets talk trucks...

I only consider the three domestic companies true trucks. The japs build the best bikes but the yank build the best trucks period.

Dodge has good looks and good features but I think are not long lasting. Matter of fact, bought my wife a bad black sport model dodge and lasted 38,000 miles before blowing a head gasket. (no more dodges for me) did by the challenger though beautiful car.

Ford. Probably the best looking interior and cool features but again motors and trannys not dependable especially their diesel. the other downsize they are sooo easy to break into. Every friend I have with a ford has been broken into at least once.

Chevy the winner in my book. while not the hottest interior they are solid and hardly every break. Each one mine has lasted 8 years with no problems except maybe a motor mount and little cracking on the dash other than that soild as a rock.

Toyota is built right in San Antonio and is far superior than ďAmericanĒ trucks. Iím Toyota all day long.
Dodge is too quick to build without testing it thoroughly. Countless problems. AC systems.
Ford- enough said. They might be able to fool the masses by dressing up a pig to make it look good but it is still a pig.
Chevy- if you had a gun to my head this would be my choice if Toyota or Nissan wasnít on the table. They have their issues. Bad motor mounts. Suspension that needs to be rebuilt every 40k. But the drivetrain is probably the best.

My 2017 Tundra TRD Pro sucks on gas 13 MPG and is pretty basic when it comes to tech. No A/C in the seats like my buddy's F-150 and missing some other tech features; but the things run forever! Big 5.7 V-8 pulls hard and ride is quite smooth for a truck.

Ford or Chevy. I'm not a fan boy. Both reliable and more than capable of my personal needs.

I would say the same too but I have seen WAY too many of friends have expensive problems with their fords. There is a reason chevy is starting to win the race among trucks.

I've got a 2017 Nissan Frontier fully loaded. Its not super techy but runs like a champ and was cheap enough to pay it off in just a few months. Super good on gas for a truck too.

Toyota for life. When I buy a vehicle I intend to drive it for 10 years. My 4Runner has almost 300K on the odometer and was running strong when I sold it. So i bought a Sequoia (Tundra with a bed cover) and I love it. Thing can pull, has great ride, AC is ice cold front and rear. I know it will go 300K with minimal maintenance.
-Re-Sale is excellent
- So what if it doesnt have gadgets, that wears off after a while anyways. Its has blue tooth, back up camera and navi, what else you need
- Drive train and motor are proven reliable for 200,000+
- Of Course the mileage sucks, its a dam 5.7 V8 weighing 3 tons

Look at all the issues Chevy has had with their motor recently, how well has the Ecoboost done, a Dodge tranny last how long?

Japanese all the way.

I guess I am the odd ball here, I am pretty much a Ford guy...
my wife drove her last ford truck for 15 years, the one she is driving now we bought new in 2007. My f250 diesel 4X4 I sold last year was a 2004, and I replaced it with a Ford Transit 250 van. I have owned chevy and dodge over the years but I have got the best service and value from my fords. If i were going to buy a new truck today, it would likely be a Ford.

Well if we are talking Diesel that is a whole other story.

Bill, Bill, Bill, you, of all people, have the nerve to suggest buying a Government Motors (GM) vehicle? Have you already gotten over that? Or, have you just been watching too many of those horrible GM commercials and believe them?
Besides, Ford has a superior product.
