Is the Titan actually based?

With 2023 being the last model year these were made, lots of these are $15-$20k off MSRP.
It seems like these are one of the last trucks that's actually still truck-like, not some turbo charged bullshit with all the options your mom insists on.

      those trucks both suck at being reliable after the warranty ends, especially the tundra with its bmw n54 wastegates

        Your are stupid too dude, my companies fleet of 2.7s and 3.5s have a frickton of miles. Even after having the cam phaser shits fixed after wayyy too long

          So how many cam phaser revisions is Ford on? Four? What about 10 speed revisions?

          Insane how after 15 years Ford can't build a reliable timing chain OR transmission

          At 200k miles they're leaking literally every fluid and need turbos and timing chain bare minimum. A 200k mile Ecoboost is a $10k repair bill.

            Bro that's every vehicle with 200k. Find an engine with that much that never needed new seals or gaskets or hoses. Rubber and plastic break down over time no matter what engine it's attached to. That's why they're called "wear items"

            Yeah and the Titan is the closest built to those old vehicles that would go to 200,000 miles on just oil changes because it doesn't have two turbos putting out a frickton of heat and heat cycles into the bay to make every rubber part and seal a hard brittle plastic. Even the Dodge Hemis and GM V8s can't keep themselves from eating lifters and cams like candy while the Titan has no issues.

            older truck gassers are famous for making it to 250k-300k on oil changes, particularly if you got the bigger engine option
            90s SBCs and BBCs, early Vortecs, 80s-90s Fords like the 300 and 302, 90s Ford 2vs, even 90s Dodge Magnums
            automatic transmissions are always a crapshoot but back then you still had a manual option 99% of the time

            still zillions of these out there doing work while Braydon doesn't use his F150 Platinum 5.0 for anything but commuting to the office, really working that 10-speed

            When people say things like "goes 200k with just oil changes" they don't mean LITERALLY just oil changes. What that means is that the ENGINE can last 200k. No wear items last 200k. Belts, hoses, seals, gaskets, those all still have to be replaced at the same intervals if it's a 1989 6 cylinder F150 or a 2023 twin turbo F150. A twin turbo has more things to check and replace, yes, and maintenance is more expensive as a result, yes, but that's not the argument being made.

            Gaskets and hoses can last that time no problem. Rubbers and gaskets are more of a time issue. They can easily last 300k+ but lasting 15 years is the real issue. With that said, sometimes things just never break if you don't touch them. There's plenty of antiques you'll find that don't leak simply because nobody's poked around and upset the system. The other problem with forced induction though is you have more outlets for heat since you're extending the exhaust outward with the turbo which lets it degrade surrounding rubber quicker

            The other problem is you're basically saying that because the car has good compression and isn't burning oil out of spec means that it's 100% good. A 200k mile Ecoboost leaking oil/coolant with clacking timing chains is going to run like dogshit and 95% of consumers will trade it in at that point.

    Yea it's great. The only reason the big 3 burger manufacturers are relevant is because American new car buyers are biased towards American cars despite them being utter shit.

    You'd be better off just getting a 2500 and being done with it altogether. 6.0 chevy, 6.2/7.3 ford, or cummins ram. You'll never find a trailer too heavy to tow or object too heavy to haul on a non commercial license with a 2500.

    Typical Nissan ownership involves transmission failures and replacing every sensor before 80k. Idk why Nissan sucks so bad at those two things.

      The RWD applications use conventional 5/7/9 speed Automatics though. The worst I've seen on the 5 speed autos is solenoids crapping themselves which is nothing compared to a GM 4/6 speed of that era like a 4L60E or 6L80E which has you rebuilding by 120k miles or less

        Nissan truck transmissions shift like shit though. It may be reliable but frick me it isn’t nice to drive. The new Ford/GM 10 speed feels way better. So far no issues on any of mine.

          I too love a transmission that constantly hunts gears. But hey it feels better right. That’s what you want over reliability
