Any half ton pickup drivers?


Thinking about going away from diesel to a newer gasser, 2013-2014 F150, possibly ecoboost, or, and I hate to say it, a silverado, 2010+ Anyone driving these? Like to hear the good and bad. Currently driving a 2005 ram 2500 cummins 6speed manual.

Good question...

I have an '07 Silverado 2500HD Crew 4x4 w/6.0 gas engine. Tows everything I need it to, but I'm not about to put a fifth wheel on it either.

A coworker has a '16 F-150 Ecoboost and it tows and drives really nicely.

I have a 2014 styleside 150 3.5 eco boost. I bought it brand new in January of 2015 and have no problems except a major break recall that left truck at dealer for two months but that is fixed now. Engine is solid so far no problems with twin turbo's. I use good oil and change oil every 3,000 no matter what because of twin turbo. Second new F150 no problems. This engine is beefy as hell for a six cylinder but quieter than my wife corolla :-(. up side Turbo's hiss when your driving it.

I own a Silverado half ton ltz 4wd. It has lots of power. I tow a travel trailer using my blue ox towing kit.

Once had a ‘98 S-10. Lasted a little less than 12-years. 191K miles before it gave up the ghost. I miss it. Like to get a Tacoma. Knock on wood.

wound up with the twin turbo ecoboost. After 6mo of driving it around, Im still amazed at its features, power and amazing ride quality.
