You know I had thought the last couple of years my next truck would be a 3/4 ton. But Looking at the Ford Eco and now getting info on the 2014 Chevy half coming out the towing on both is over 11,000lb with the benifit of much better mileage than the 3/4 ton. I still cannot find the Chevy 3/4 crew to test drive what the heck is up with that. 2014 chevy 5.3l has cylinder deactivation and shows will have slighlty better mileage and towing over the Eco Boost. Kinda waiting now to see 1st hand the new 2014 chevy 1500. Seems like the new half tons are more capable than the 3/4tons of the past.
