Styling is just as subjective as color.
I only want silver with a black interior.
I've gone through stages/phased. I used to want black vehicles.
I have had yellow, green, red, gray, black, and silver- 3 silver vehicles.
If I am getting a used one at a good price, color doesn't matter so much, but if I am buying new I want what I want.
Case in point: our 2014 Avalon bought new- silver with black interior- they had to send a man to Teague Toyota in El Dorado, AR to get it.
My 1987 Mazda B2000: I don't know where they got it, but the day I did the deal the only colors on the lot were white and brown. In 20/20 hindsight I should have taken the white one, but I was 17 and wanted a red one- a red one with gray area interior, bumper, tape deck, and a/c. Those were the days. $500 down payment and notes of $149.50-

Per the Ford web site, the payload package for the 5 1/2 bed super crew cab with 3.5 eco boost engine and max trailer package is 2,170 lbs. That's 624 lbs more than a 2014. Very close to the 700 lb weight savings. Towing capacity is over 11,000 lbs. I hope it's correct as mine gets delivered next week.

Good news is, if you want to do so, the new Chevys and GMCs are fantastic; wonderfully comfortable. And mileage with the 3/4 ton truck with Duramax is simply amazing. We are loving the choice. Around 20 mpg for general driving and around 14 mpg while towing the 30' Serenity, fully loaded. Diesel fuel is around the same price as gas. We're enjoying the towing mpg very much, as our previous RV (44' diesel pusher) got around 7 mpg.
I'm gonna get me a new truck one of these days. I would love to take advantage of the goodies they build into them.

My take on braking our gas pickup and Airstream when needed is . . . that's what they are there for and they are very effective. Especially with 2,000 lbs less pickup weight to slow. With winter approaching, it's very good to be using some trailer braking should you come upon a patch of ice to prevent jackknifing.
