I've been consistently owning/driving Chevy Silverado 1500 - 3500 C & K pickups since the mid-1980's and they've overall been very reliable for me, going a quarter-million miles before I sold them (still running).

The refreshed 2022's are very nice and comfortable to drive when not blinged out with 22" rims.

I've been eyeballing a new Denali 1500 with the 6.2L gasser, but I figure with 40,000 (or more) 2022 c/k1500's alone still waiting to be shipped out to dealers, I figure (the 2022's) will be deeply discounted come this cold Feb or March when sitting next to the 2023's that are already on the dealer's lots (y)
6.6L V8 more dependable. 6.2L V8 valve-train issues would terrify me.

My son carries 6 (2 adults and 4 kids (ages 8-14) plus 2 dogs) in the F150. They would like something a bit bigger that's tow capable. He's probably looking at a F250 or F350. He wants to upgrade the double axle camper to a 38 ft-er too. Yikes.
Up here in CO mountains the F250-350 SD is unbeatable. The Trail Boss suits us fine and I love the 2.7Turbo 4. Its a lightweight half ton sprung to 3/4 ton capability and that makes rear too light so 720lbs go in via sand bags ballast in winter. Front is pretty light too since 4 popper turbo drops a about 200 lbs off the V8 and maybe 75-100 lbs off 4.3 V6 weights ( off top of head weights don't hold me to them).

I chain up rear locker in nasty icy hill climbs.
