I'm leaning towards a 2012 F150 or 2012 Sierra

My cousin just bought a new 2012 Nissan Frontier SV for around $18K, but it had hail damage (not too bad though)

I know it's uncommon but my father in law bought a 2012 F150 and after only 6,000 miles, the transmission went out! A buddy of mine owns a tow truck company and he has a "smaller" wrecker and it's a Sierra. I just see the pros and cons to both.

I start selling cars the first of the month and my dad has done so for almost 2 decades and I can tell you a car going out at 6k miles is a rarity. If you want a reliable car get a Tundra, lifetime warranties + many purchasable warranties as well as some of the newest technology. Not sure if they are still the only one but the new tundras have tailgate assist where if you open it and let go it doesn't slam it just slowly goes down and the back window goes all the way down like a side window. Very high tech, toyota is always making new adds

EcoBoost F-150. Great truck with tons of power for a 6cylinder and good MPG's.

This is what I drive and I love it. One of the best trucks I have owned, I have always driven
Silverados and like this much more. I can't speak to Ford but it seems like a decent truck.

I drive a dodge ram with 170k on it, and it runs like a champ. I've never had an issue with any Ford I have ever owned. On the other hand every single chevy I've had has been a pos.

If I believed in buying brand new vehicles, I'd buy a Sierra Denali 2500HD Duramax. Baddest truck on the market. In my opinion of course.

F150. I wouldnt be too concerned with 5.0 vs Ecoboost either. The mileage tends to be very similar.

GM and Dodge both took bailout money, Toyota frames flex like mad (there are videos, it is bad) and the Nissan Titan is an 8 year old design and gets lousy mileage. That leaves Ford.

I went through this debate last year, bought a leftover 2011 in February and have not looked back (had a 2005 Nissan Frontier and while it was a decent truck, the Ford destroys it in every way and gets the same mileage).

Tundra - Tacoma is nice if you want a more medium sized truck. Gas mileage difference isn't much between the two, so not really an advantage on the smaller truck here.

If you're looking for a truck go with the F150. If you're looking for a car that looks like a truck go with the Sierra.

If you're using it as a grocery getter it really doesn't matter which one you get, unless you're considering a Toyota. Your bed might detach from the frame flexing on a speed bump. Might want to take it easy and not go in at an angle.

I don't think you can really get unbiased opinions about what truck you should buy from a message board. We all have different experiences, you just need to do your research and find what fits best for your needs and finances.

Just like everyone else I can pick sides but they are biased. My nephew went from a Chevy to a Ford and in no time he started have major engine problems, he went back to Chevy. I have owned two Chevy's over the past 18 years. My brother and I have basically had the same truck for the same amount of time, only difference between his/mine 2003/2002 and he has 4WD. Neither of us have any complaints. My brother-in-law has had everything but a Ford. Personally I would never buy a Ford but that doesn't necessarily mean they are bad. Like anything else, any manufacturer can have something come off the line that is a POS.

To honestly answer your question we would need to know what price range you have in mind. The Raptor is not an inexpensive truck.

Price range? Size? Manual/Automatic? Used/New? Off road fun/everyday to and from work? Too many variables really.

Personally, I have a Tacoma double cab with full size bed. Love it, but if I had to do it over again, I might go bigger and get a Tundra. Toyota's have always been reliable for me, and I think value holds well. I also like F150, F250, and some Dodge's. I say decide on your price range first and figure out what works from there.
