Taco is out of the question for sure.
New Tundra is a bit better than the old tundras were. Ive driven a few and just tossing up the gasser idea. Cost vs Cost is what im looking at. The new 6.4 hemi 2500 is nice. I do not like the 5.3 that gm offers, to me it is a pig when comparing to others in its class

There are Chevy RSTs out there with the 6.2, just got to have a dealer hunt one down. My 2020 5.3 does fine doing what I do, pulling a bay boat and Ranger around, but you apparently want more. The 6.2 with the 10 speed is a kick butt combo for sure.

Just traded in a 2015 Tundra 4.6(No longer make)with 198,000 miles. Put brakes on it at 180,000 miles and plugs at 120,000 miles. Oil change every 10,000 plus a couple air filters. That's IT!!!!
Have a 2020 Tundra now and have been driving it like a baby on the daily 110 mile commute and getting around 20MPG with the 5.7 primarily on BW8 and I-10(flat ground). Plan on getting 4.5 years out of this one at the rate of 42,000 miles per year. Toyota does not over price their vehicles like the big 3 so they do not have much room to negotiate pricing. Getting $4000 off MSRP is about the Norm.

thanks for the feedback. this is what I'm looking for. I'm at a toss up a the moment as my truck is still in the shop and ive been researching 3 trucks. ive heard the new tundra 5.7 has decent mpg and ive driven one that was a haus when you mashed the gas. only downfall was the bed size in the tundra. my flats boat is light and looking at upgrading to a jh next year so..... I know the tundra will tow it just fine. decisions,......

Tundra double cab is my preference with a 6.5 foot bed. Crew cab has a 5.5 footer

I was doing be some research on this very issue. Gas mileage and towing power the Ram 5.7 hemi with Etorque and Ford 3.5 Ecoboost offer the best towing pkg and mpg. Like you I don't really want a turbo.
Ram 5.7 Etorque 395hp 410T 12.7k towing
Ford 3.5 EcoBst. 375hp 470T 12.7k towing
GMC 6.2 420hp 460T 9.6k towing
GMC 5.3 355hp 383T 9.6k towing
Toyota 5.7 381hp 401T 8.8k towing

All I can say about some of those inflated towing stats is good luck putting 12.7k behind any 1/2 ton truck.
