Selecting new ride... for the wife
We guys me and my wife-tobe are looking at getting her a new vehicle towards this summer and I would like some input on the decision. This vehicle will be her daily driver and needs to last her i would say at least 8-10 years. There are only two main requirements that are set in stone and they are 1. 4x4 2. 4 door. Those are the two main things that I am for sure on. I have looked at SUVs but I want them to be a good size because they are safer in a wreck and I am 6'2 and I am going to ride in it as well at times as it will be our vacation vehicle. Also once you get into the larger SUVs they don't get any better mileage than a truck and cost just as much or more to fix. So i think a truck would be a better option and I have looked at getting a new Tundra as they are pretty impressive but they are $36K new and the used ones hold their value to well, and only get 13/17 city/highway and that is if you baby it. So i was thinking about either an F150 or maybe a late 6.0 or 6.4 with around 75k-120k on it. Like I said this would be her daily driver and there would be city driving a lot. To be honest we don't need that large of vehicle but I feel safer knowing that she is in a large vehicle and with some work these diesels can get better mileage than the Tundra. I have also thought about a Duramax for her as they get pretty good mileage but I am a Ford guy and would like to stick with them... I am looking for your input on what we should look at.
If you recommend us looking for a 6.0 or 6.4 tell me what mods you would suggest to help improve the mileage over stock. She is kind of a heavy footed driver which i know will not help but every little bit helps. Thanks
