    Personally, I can't believe the Expedition made that list. The one we had made it to 85k, and was getting near the end. That was an '04 model, so maybe the newer ones are much better.
    Its nearly meaningless in that the highest percentage of any of them is 6.6%. For all vehicles it’s 1.2%.

    In our fleet experience if you spend the money on maintenance you can get just about anything to 200,000. But it probably doesn’t make economic sense.

    Interesting, I loved my Ford eco boost, will be fun to see how GM evolves with this.

    My 2015 sierra is almost at lease end. I’ll miss the 6.2 and that’s it. Certain parameters are limiting my next move so Toyota Tundra limited with the shorter cab and bed is next up for me. Test drove one last week and it’s a really nice rig. The ONLY downside to the switch is the tundra is slathered in plastic chrome shit, just like my current truck. I really dislike blingy shit.

    Now if they did the turbo 4 banger, and ALSO fully aluminum bodied the bowtie, then it would probably hit it out of the park on MPG, driveability, etc. Lightness is an asset.

    Need to wait a year or two so they can do that and brag about even better fuel mileage. All part of the game.

    If MPG goes up too much too fast they can't bang the drum about unreasonable CAFE requirements all the time

    My friend went from a 2013ish Sierra to a 2017 tundra. He loves the tundra, but is a little bummed that 1.) it rides much firmer than the Sierra, and 2.) at least the trim he has, didn’t come with some options like his Sierra had, like height adjustable seats.

    Also, the paint seems cheap, he has a few chips that went straight through the paint to the metal, as if Toyota’s paint is thin in layers or something. Just food for thought

    Appreciate it, I know they have some deficiencies and donít really compete with the high end domestics. But this will be a corp supplied vehicle so any fucks given are really for comfort and my specific needs. I think it will be a great truck but time will tell. Iíll only have it 3 years so Iím hoping for the best. The few Tundra owners I know seem to like theirs.

    Toyota kicks ass with the Tacoma but the Tundra seems stuck at 5-10% market share.

    My opinion on that is, the Dakota and ranger currently donít exist, while many buyers would never consider a tundra over a Silverado/ram/f150 (Iím dying to know how many ram buyers pass on tundra to buy ĎMurica when really they are buying Italian)...
