Trying to decide on a new used truck...help would be appreciated.
OK…I’m going to pull the trigger on a new used truck 2015-2018. I think I’m to the point of choosing between the F150 and the Toyota Tundra. I would like to have a 4x4 but it’s not a necessity, my budget is 35K so that might eliminate certain 4x4s…crew cab is a must and I’m stuck on a V8 (not feeling the ecoboost). Looking for input from owners of both or firsthand knowledge.
Thanks in advance!
i bought a 2015 for 28k

Over the years SInce 1985 I’ve purchased 16 cars/trucked from them
ask for Bob or Tom cousins
they take trades as well and very fair
Currently using a 2011 Tacoma and a 2007 Tundra after spend DECADES with GM products. Toyota has the not breaking part down, even with the way we use the Tundra in the woods. But......if MPGs are of any concern then the Ford is probably the choice. Have the smaller V-8 in the Tundra......and it is a SINGLE CAB not a extended.....and it gets worse MPG than did the 1989 GM with the small V-8......by 12-15%.
This too.....and it is probably of no consideration for most.....but the doors on the 2007 Tundra weight a TON!. It's about all Louann can do to push them open or pull them closed when I park on the side of the roads in the woods.
But then that speaks to the safety of the vehicle.
If you plan on keeping it a long time, which we do as we tend to beat the heck out of them, the Tundra may ultimately win out as I'd venture it'll have fewer repairs.
Buddy D...that site has some good deals!
If you are a really good negotiator and can forego the four wheel drive you can probably buy a brand new Tundra for what you have budgeted.
