All right, I have been looking into buying a new truck lately and want to hear some opinions. What do y'all think is the best bang for you buck when looking at 2014-2015 trucks. Options I am looking at include 4x4 and preferably a V8, I have been leaning toward the F-150s because their price for what you get seems very reasonable. Opinions?

I agree with what was already said. The 5.0 f-150 is a good set up for pulling a few thousand pounds with no problem. Not to mention the great ride that the new f-150's have.

Gm engines have too many cam timing issues for me and i am just not a dodge, ram, or chrysler fan at all.

UTDmiller, I think if you seriously look at the Toyota Tundra, you will change your mind about which truck to purchase.

If I'm just towing a bass boat and wanted an F150, I look hard at the 2.7l ecoboost. It's performance is jaw dropping and gets better economy than the 5.0l.

I don't think you could go wrong with the Ford and 5.0.

+1, especially if you plan to keep it a while. Personally I think the new Fords are ugly but so are Dodges. There also seems to be this renewed fascination with chrome.

I find it comical you say the fords are ugly and recommend a Toyota considering how similar they look.

I loved my 5.0 in the 2012 mustang I used to have.Im sure it's just as nice in the f150. Sounds good too.
People love to hate on the toyota 5.7, but it is a nice truck too.

Well I would be buying a new 2014, way better deals since the 2015s are out now. Family member has a tundra and there are some things I like about the truck but gas mileage is pretty horrid, though 2 more mpg doesn't seem like much itll make a difference over a year. I plan on looking at a few this weekend so I appreciate all the responses.

Edit: Step Brother has a 2013 f150 5.0 and get 2-3mpg more towing or not over the tundra which is a 2012

If you want reliable, look at the Consumer Reports year-end buying guide. It shows the repair records for vehicles over the last several years.
