I never said it wouldn't pull it. I said it gets horrible gas mileage and doesn't hold enough to begin with.
It has tons of power. It is a lot faster than my ford was. No doubt.
I'm talking about a 5000lb load.
7.8 mpg at 72 mph is horrible. The transmission constantly hunts and the thing is wound up.
The ford would pull it in top gear at the same speed getting 11.4 mpg all day long. I could run 300 miles before a gas stop. And, the ford was a 4x4 with slightly larger tires and a crew cab.
I was always a fan of the toyotas and I almost bought one a few times. I'm sure it will last a long time and its certainly not a piece of crap.
That said, I can't wait to get another F150.
