    I'm KNOWING Ford.
    Problem with this argument is everyone has an opinion and won't stick to the facts. Each truck outclasses another in one way or another, and it is difficult to find the overall winner. All I know is there is one that has been the best selling truck for like 11ty billion years.

    I'm just thinking more in reliability and durabilty. American cars and trucks don;t seem to last too long.

    Too many other factors. The driver, driving conditions, maintenance and many other factors. Overall though Toyota has had a very good reputation for quality and being long lasting.

    GM sells more trucks than Ford, ford just caims it since they compare to GMC and Chevrolete divisions separate, GM again outsells ford pretty much every year.

    American trucks are generally the longest lasting vehicles on the road.

    Did you know that the Silverado includes 6 different models while the F-150 only includes 4?

    Looks like there are 3 Fords in the top 10 and only 2 bowties.

    When it comes down to it, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own thoughts about cars. But i will say this much for sure. The best truck out there is going to be a Diesel. Wether its chevy, ford or dodge, they will absolutely last forever. There are countless Cummins and Powerstrokes out there with 600,000 miles +.

    Best truck?
    Used for what?

    If you are towing or hauling anything considerably heavy, forget Toyota.
    Toyota makes great trucks, but they're limited on hauling/towing capabilities.

    If you use your truck to haul small loads from Home Depot, the grocery store, nursery, etc. or to tow small, light trailers, (i.e., under 21 foot boat, pwc's, etc.), the Toyota is awesome.

    If you use your truck to tow construction equipment, an enclosed trailer, bigger boats, or haul heavy loads, American made trucks are the only vehicles up to the task. They do it well too. Be it a Duramax, Powerstroke, or Cummins.

    you can have your underpowered ford. You can have your overpriced chevy. You can have your broken-down dodge.

    Toyota has the reliability, but it doesn't have the size or power.

    But the NISSAN TITAN has it all. Yep, Nissan wins.

    I have both a toyota and a chevy. Both older vehicles, yota is an 83, and chevy is an 85. Chevy has 210K and running strong, and yota has around same. Neither of them have EVER had their engines touched other than routine maint, and occasional accessory replacement (i.e. alt) I beat the fire out of my yota. Almost on a daily basis. it has been slammed, rolled, submerged, you name it its been through it just about. I LOVE that truck, but I can't haul any thing IN it sizeable or heavy (we tried to carry a motor in it once. It was having probs with the load, not to mention it made it squat in the rear like a mofo, and travelling down the interstate @ 70 mph wasn't fun. ) My Chevy on the other hand has hauled our boat for over 16 years. I love them both, and they both serve their purpose.

    I like Ford trucks ok, I am just partial to GM. Same goes for Dodge. I <3 the old Dodge bodystyle, and the new ones are pretty sharp too. As far as the new Nissan, well Carlos Ghosn may know what he is doing to bring that company back around, but they sure know how to make an ugly truck. That is my personal opinion though, and I am sure it is a really nice truck overall. It has been getting rave reviews, so it can't be all bad. I <3 Toyotas almost as much as I do GM, if not equal. Anyway. Sorry for the documentary.
