Being as I am in Mi, most people buy from the "Big 3", but mainly GM and Ford.
3 people have bought new trucks in the last few months.
One f150 EB, 2 gm 5.3's.
The 150 was $48k sticker. The interior is no where near what the Plat that I bought for just a touch more than that. Now, had he gotten a Plat, it would likely be a different story, but then a huge jump in price.
The 5.3's so far are only getting 2 more mpg than I am getting around town.
One guy tows his camper and has said it lacks power. Not a huge camper, only 5300lbs.
All 3 guys had to add a brake controller, and all 3 went with the cheapest one they could, which is likely on par with the oem yota brake controller. It is no Tekonsha Prodigy, but it is still better than nothing, or the cheapest one out there.
When they do the testing, at least in all the reviews I have read, they normally test the 6.2 unicorn engine package in the GM's.
I looked into one when I was first looking at trading my truck. Way too much. Even though I could build it online, dealers said I couldn't get the truck the way I built it online and could only get the 6.2 in the upper echelon of packages, which would have been more than my Plat cost me.
If you liked your current truck, you won't be disappointed with a 17 imo.
