What Midsize to compact truck?

Recommended Posts

I will be getting my first vehicle and i am almost set as to getting a truck.(I have no bike now so i don't have to worry about hauling until later) But i have been looking at all the factors and i pretty much want a 4door 4x4 with a v6 or v8. I would like to have a bed that holds 2 bikes though with tailgate up or down. I have been looking at F150's and dodge and Chevy !500's and also some Foreign Brands but two things i am most concerned about is gas mileage and insurance. So what truck would you buy for yourself or a 16 y/o kid. don't worry about money because ill be buying used so it won't be too much.

Best gas milage: Chevy 1500, hopefully with the E85 option engine.

Best quality: Ford F150

Cheeapest insurance: Usually anything but GM products. GM products contain more pieces per componet which have to be bought and assembled in the event of a repair. GM is getting better at this so the age of the vehicle will play into insurance costs somewhat.

I read on the Chevy page on the E85 motor and it doesn't even get better mileage but its better for the environment.
