Most likely just steam from the hot exhaust hitting the cold outside air, assuming you haven't noticed any smoke issues previously.

Race files tend to smoke in the cold, if your signature is correct - until they're warmed up.

Fumes while you are driving or parked. SUV's and station wagons were famous for this since their back windows leaked and allowed exhaust to enter the vehicle. Check your sliding rear window make sure that is closed and not leaking ie: "3rd brake lights on Fords are famous for allowing water in the vehicle." Or exhaust may be getting into your HVAC. Just some food for thought.

your heating and cooling ventilation. when you have your heat or ac on high you can choose fresh air or recirculate cabin air. if you have a leak outside of the truck fumes will come thru your heat or your leak my be penetrating your passenger cabin via the firewall, rear window or the vents on the back wall of your truck
