who builds the most Dependable Longest Lasting truck on the road
I know this may sound like a dumb question... because everyone knows (thinks) its Chevrolet but I have been reading in some places that it in fact Dodge . I have also seen in places that is Ford... I am just curious to hear your guys opinion ( I Personally Believe NOTHING can touch a FORD TRUCK).
THis question is asked in many different ways, many different times on this forum. One would suspect if you asked on a Ford Enthusisats forum, that the answer would be ford. If you went to the Chevy forum, it would be chevy.
The truth of the matter is, it depends on how you use and maintain your truck. Out in Cali, my trucks would last forever. All of them. Up in Alaska, you tear a truck up rather quickly. Here in Iowa, if you by a truck that is 20 years old, the body looks like swiss cheese and the underbody is a mess. You will find an occasional cherry that is like my trucks, washed through the winter and waxed a couple of times a year.
Since 1992 more Ford Trucks have seen 250.000 miles than any other brand which i belive is 306,000kms? i belive it cause i know of about 5 ford trucks off the top of my head that have over 250,000 kms my truck has 210,700 and there is nothing wrong with it runs like a dream and the facts are true also true that more fords are towing heavier loads than other brands with higher milege fact: there are proborly more than 3 million more ford trucks on the road than any other brand ford sells more trucks for a reason stronger, last longer, and keep haulin so ford makes the best truck money can buy everyday i see more and more older beat up ford trucks there still going have company logos on them theres just tons of ford trucks on the road because they keep going and going

It also depends how long you are willing to go back as well, and include what models.
I would say a late 70's Toyota Landcruiser, early 80's Toyota Hilux, and the 70's Mercedes trucks were the most reliable trucks built - ever...
