Another friend of mine with a 11 or 12 Chevy Z71 called me today. His cam shaft broke, 3K miles out of warranty. :-/

I just priced out a '13 Tundra Crewmax. With the money I put into the Ford SCREW 4x4 loaded XLT, the Tundra would cost me in excess of $416/mo on a lease. The Ford? $182 monthly, with a nifty buyback 48% of MSRP after 2 years.

Best of luck on your choice.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you got a 2013 xtr whatever engine size you did, and youre paying 182???? I just picked up one from east court ford Lincoln, 6.5 ft 5.0L xtr with back up camera chrome 20's sync etc and I'm paying 407. We are talking about the same car here, cause in which case I got completely f*cked over

I own a 2011 F150. I also owned a 2009 Tundra. Here is my opinion:

09 Tundra Rock Warrior TRD 4X4 Double Cab
5.7L, 4.30 rear
- cheap interior
- fast as snot
- HORRIBLE gas mileage (12 city 16 hwy)
- Got me stuck many times
- LS rear is worthless
- payload was a joke
- never breaks
- seats not that comfortable
- expect to pay close to sticker

2011 F150 EB 4X4 3.73 Max Tow Larriat SuperCrew
- superior interior
- goes in 2WD where my Tundra required 4WD
- LS rear that works
- Superior mileage
- works like a truck and great family and commuter
- payload is sick! Took 3000 lbs in the bed easy
- EB engine has gobs of power and TQ
- EB F150 quicker 60mph and up, slower than Tundra 0-60
- no issues and at 42K
- way more comfortable to drive
- cheap leather IMO
- I negotiate my Fords at around 25% off sticker. $51K truck for $38K.

My reasons for buying the F150:

Safety

It had the best rating of all domestic trucks
Additional personal safety restraint device was free (other manufacturers charge)
Trailer sway control
ABS
Traction control
Boxed frame
Massive brakes

Convenience

Useful option packages like trailer tow
Navigation
Sony stereo with speed sensing volume
Better use of interior space
Comfortable seating front and back

Economy

Great mileage with 5.0L V8
Huge tank for great cruising range
Extended service intervals

Value

Deep, deep discounts
Financing specials
Loyalty credits
Costco membership discounts
Discounted option packages

Comfort

Comfy seats
Interior space
Smooth, quiet ride
Easy steering
Well laid out controls
Power pedals

Personal observations

Fun to drive
Stylish looks
Color combos/styles for everyone's taste
Popular
Other brands may be cheap, but Ford is inexpensive
Aftermarket parts are plentiful, if you can dream it, they make it

A far as longevity I feel most new vehicles with proper maintenance, and not driving them hard, will last a long time. My 05 F150 has nearly 200k in miles and it runs perfect. I have not had one major issue ever with this truck and I bought it with 106k. I see no reason why another 100k is not possible.

I would think since it is a business move the one you can get at the best price would be the way to go but the research you are doing now helps a lot. No point in buying something cheap if repairs and maintenance cost a lot more. I learned that when I bought a German car in 2006.
