    Default new truck

    just putting it out there, going to buy a new or close to new truck by spring.so many options and brands to choose leaning real close to dodge,as i still have my 2001 ram 1500 been a great truck. but getting closer to retirement decided need something new. hope what ever i decide on can be as dependable as the old one. thought of the eco deisel for fuel mileage mostly and some towing of my boat in the mountains. the ram hemi fuel mileage does not look good dont have any experience with fords or chevys. take many trips up past kamloops each year so mileage will be important also will be my to and from work vehicle. any thoughts out there would be appreciated. thanks and a merry christmas to all the members thanks norm

    I recommend a toyota tacoma or toyota tundra if you need the extra room and power. Both are excellent trucks.

    I like my 2010 F-150, 25 mpg with a 5.4, hear the eco boost six is a bullet proof engine with good pulling power. I looked at diesel but you have to drive a lot to justify them.

    I bought the new 2015 F150 supercrew with the 3.5 ecoboost. Like the space in the back for the kids, it was the only truck without at transmission hump in the back....which is nice for the center seat. Drove both the 3.5 eco and 5.0 ....liked the smooth power of the 3.5 eco. Mileage is good on the hwy and not to bad in town (its a truck after all and not a commuter car)......pull my boat without any issues.

    Old I know. I bought a 2015 F150 last year. I went with the V8. I don't buy into the environmental BS (I refuse to recycle), so no way in heck would I get the ecoboost. I can understand saving some money gas savings wise. But really unless you have a big long distance commute, the gas mileage saving between the ecoboost and V8 is very little. Ford makes the best trucks build quality wise exterior and interior. Ford tough is true, especially compared to other American trucks and even the Japanese. Ford has more interior room for passengers too.

    I was a Ford guy until I got a big Toyota.
    Toyota is unmatched.-

    It does nothing to preserve the environment. We have lots of unneeded empty space to create land fills for unlimited garbage. Id rather sacrifice a few rural acres even 1000. VS wasting resources to recycle. Global warming is a proven false myth. Hence they have gone to climate change. Nothing we can do to control the weather. So why bother? We should keep streams clean, lakes clean and the area around us. But actual efforts to recycle items is liberal hokum. I refuse to do anything liberal, socialist or communist.
