Toyota's 5.7L is only a year older, the engines in the new GM trucks while sharing the same displacement are new this year. The 5.6 in the Titan has been around the longest with no changes. The Ram Hemi has been around nearly a decade with a few tweaks.
My dad's 2005 Sierra diesel has 131k+ hard use miles. Tow 7500-15000 pounds regularly. Never been at the dealer, no check engine lights ever, original batteries, no exterior lights have even burned out, Allison 1000 is top notch still, passes emissions every time. Top grade SLT model and no electronics have failed. It's been in the coldest conditions (-40F) and hottest (110F) while towing loads. I can say its had no real issues (electrical or mechanical). Let's get your friends 15k mile grocery runners near this type of use (relatively speaking) before saying they have "no issues". Until then, I stand by my original statement, new Fords are shit.

I had 99 F150 and 04 F150 below 200K KM or 125K miles already galore of issues from ball joints, front end, misfire, power steering & rear diff leak, tranny rebuilt, brake cable seizing and shit man electronic...fu(k the dash light would go off while you were driving. My 04 Taco not a single issue at 240K KM. No comparison in the quality of the parts. oh this reminds me I need to replace the alternator on my 98 mustang GT shit! I kept buying used fords cause they dirt cheap
sounds like my 2001. Ford ball joints suck. One dealer told I was lucky to get to 40k. Here is my list prior to 90k: roof repainted, lower ball joints, dash paint peeling, cup holder, coil, plugs twice, spit a plug, fuel pump, intake gasket, 4 sets of front breaks, 4 sets of tires. Plugs were supposed to be 100k platinum's. No way you could leave them in that long with crappy design.

The 2.0 gets 20mpg.
My 2.7 gets 24.
ya but your 5lug car is barely a truck. just saying cause you always post up about your fantastic mpg's. apples to grapefruits here.

my 5.0 reg cab f150 4x4 with a 2inch lift and 33's gets the same mpg on the hwy as my 4cyl tacoma with a 3 inch lift and 32's! would never have gotten the ecobust even if it had been an option in the reg cab, had toyota been more flexible or comparable at all in availability and price a reg cab tundra short bed woulda been nice.
