Dodge vs Chevy vs Ford

I know this has been asked a hundred times, but this is an ever changing task. Today, if you were to purchase a new tow vehicle, would it be a Dodge, Chevy or Ford, and why ??

I'm good with any of them, so it comes down to availability in what I'm looking for and price!

Do they still make Chevy and Ford?

Dodge....if desperate I MIGHT consider a Ford on a drunken day.

You defined "new" with that being said I'm not sure I would buy new. Too much emission equipment to delete. Now if your talking "new" to me without a doubt a duramax, and would spend the time to find an LBZ, as for dodge and ford, they have had great years also. I can replace ALOT of parts for what they want for a "new" not so reliable truck. I see you didn't specify diesel or gas, so if it was a 2015 I just might look into a gas engine, depending on how much and how often I was towing, would still be a GM.

I've been towing tt's and one 5th wheel with Fords and have absolutely no complaints. I only owned 1 Chevy (junk) and one Dodge (yuk). The resale on the Dodge was horrible and so was the repair record. The Chevy definitely had the most defects. Sorry people, the Fords have had the greatest track record for performance and repairs (or lack of). My F150's have been ironclad.

Actually in my case it was just the opposite. They're all great if you get a good one and suck if you get a lemon.
