As Of 4 yrs ago, yes, I'm afraid so. Not even a dodge?!

I'd buy Japanese before GM.

Like said above, go with what feels right.

I have owned all of the three big truck manufacturers...my impressions-
Love the ride of the Chevy...
Love the features and look of the Ford...
Can't beat the power and dependability of my Cummins...if it came in one of the above platforms I might not have a Dodge.
FWIW

Last time I went truck shopping (Dec 09), I wanted a used Ford F-150 Super Crew w/ the 6.5 bed. (I wanted the ability to get my motorcycle in the bed without drama) They are apparently a rare bird, the only one I could find locally was a salvage title. The GMs weren't any better with the longer bed. Didn't want a 3/4 ton or bigger, no boat, no big heavy trailer to pull. No point buying expensive extra capability that I don't need. Ended up with a 08 Ram 1500. It's been very good. If you haven't test drove a Hemi powered truck, you owe it to yourself (especially the 09 & newer 390 hp version.)

What do you owe any particular company that you feel compelled to buy their product to the exclusion of all others? Buy the product that meets your needs.

I have owned several trucks in my lifetime. Most of which were of the 3/4 ton and 1 ton diesel variety.

Ford makes a solid truck. I have a 2012 F-150 right now. I am not as pleased with it as I was with my 2008 Company F-150..
My father just bought a 2013 GMC 1500, and I love it. Nicer truck all the way around the block. I have contemplated trading my F-150 in on one.

As far as work trucks go. It's hard to beat the Ford chassis, brakes, and suspension. My 2010 F-250 work truck is stout, but the 6.4 Powerstroke is terrible on fuel.

I had an 04 Duramax that was great on fuel, but the brakes sucked....

Will say one thing. My 06 Dodge Dakota was a piece. The company I work for won't buy anymore Dodges because the only thing in them worth anything is the Cummins.

Steering gearboxes, slush box transmissions, and chronic rust issues on doors and rockers proved an inferior product. This coming from a Chrysler family. I have many relatives that have retired or still work for Chrysler....

Thanks for all the input y'all,this is really what I was looking for,input on ALL my options from those that have owned and drove them.

I really don't need the capability to tow anything as a hardly ever do,every once in a while I would at my old job but the new company I work for has work trucks and I would not need to use the new truck for work or even to carry tools around anymore. But I'm a truck guy at heart and that's what I will buy,even if its just your standard cab 1/2 ton. I don't really need anymore than that,but there's no sense in going smaller (rangers,dakotas,etc) with a truck and getting the same gas mileage

Those compact trucks would be out of the question anyway. Unless you count the tacoma, I believe chevy is the only one still making a compact pick up. And they're total ****. Have yet to find an owner who's satisfied.

Do we have any Canyon/Colorado owners here that like it? Speak up please, or forever hold your peace...
