Ford trucks are great. All companies have exceptions.

Although I have never heard of a ford being bought back for frame rust on a car less than 5 years old.

That is becauses they won't acknowledge the issue. My buddies 01 Ranger looks worse than any tacoma frame I have seen and they won't do anything about it. From what he states, there are many people with the same issue. I have yet to confirm this though.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Which is why my Dad switched to Chevy after all the Fords were shot in 2 years.

I wont say they are "great", but I will agree that all companies have exceptions.

If Toyota made an electric tacoma with say- a 300 mile range and within the same cost, sure- I'd consider it. There's a guy down the street from where I work who owns a Tesla- an all electric sports car that costs 100k. The thing is FAST. That's the cool thing about electric cars. They have craploads of torque.

yep, a combustion engine will never win against an electric motor. That would be the ultimate work truck if it had good mileage on a charge.

The f150 is a great truck.

And electric power has the potential to completely demolish gas motors in every aspect of power and reliability. They just need to get the battery technology better.

Remember an electric motor has 100% torque at 1 RPM.

As a previous owner of a 7.3L F-350 power-stroke, which is indeed one of the best trucks Ford has ever produced, I agree Ford does not sell the most trucks for 20 years by making a unreliable truck. It just takes copious amounts of ignorance.

I had an F-250 Diesel for 6 yrs and only had a master cylinder go out on the breaks. No other issues. Just got to be tiring to drive that thing every day.

Rock on. I had the 7.3 in my 97 f350 short bed short cab 4x4 (5 speed) back in 1997. That thing would pull the old off grandma. That was a great motor. What the hell happened with the 6.0 and 6.4? Junk.
