Price drop.

In Topic: In the market, truck for towing / daily driver

Yesterday, 10:52 AM

My Vette has been pulling double duty for several years as my daily and track toy. I had a Blazer for a while as a backup, but I mostly drove the Vette all the time.

I'm ready now to get another vehicle that will serve as a daily. I am tempted to get something fun like a BRZ, but it makes more sense to get a pickup truck that I can daily but also use for towing. I have a feeling that later this year I'll be getting a trailer because I want to put race seats and a harness bar in the Vette and won't be street legal anymore. (I really don't want to swap seats every freaking track event). Plus it will be nice to be able to bring the car home when it inevitably breaks at the track yet again vs waiting for a tow truck.


Anyway, I've been doing a little research here and there...and am down to 3 trucks that I think would be best.


Toyota Tundra

Chevrolet Silverado

Ford F-150


All V8 of course, but kind of torn as to which one. I'm really leaning towards the Tundra right now. Seems like the most comfortable and has the edge with towing capacity for gasoline engines (don't want diesel). Only downside seems to be the crappy MPG.


What would you guys recommend?



3.5L EB F150. V8 sounds great but is annihilated by turbo torque when towing, no comparison.



Best towing capacity in the 1/2 ton truck market is the 3.5 Ecoboost F150. Mileage is good, too. 




And yes, I have a well cared for black 2016 F150 3.5 EB Max Tow package (11,500 lbs), spray in bed liner, heated seats all that jazz. PM for details.
