Last year, I got rid of my 2006 GMC 4wd 1/2 ton, with 112.000 miles on it, that was literally falling apart. Didn't want to pay the stupid high prices for a new, or near new full size pick up, so found a used 2017 Ford Escape AWD with the 2.0 turbo motor with 50k miles for a good price. My first turbo, I am still on the fence. It is quick and smooth, would probably give my V8 GMC a run for the money in the 1/4 mile. Probably quicker. Hard to get used to the high revs compared to a V8, but that's just the nature of the beast. Will the turbo and motor hold up? Put 10k on it so far, no problems.
A mechanic I trust told me the most important things you can do for turbo longevity is use good synthetic oil, and change it often. Also, when you are done driving, let the vehicle idle for about a minute before turning it off. That lets the oil in the turbo cool off a little, and prevents burnt oil / carbon from building up in the turbo, greatly extending its life.
With the good deals right now, and 0% financing being offered, I am looking at a new Ford 1/2 ton P/U. I like that little Escape, but its capacity is limited, and it cant tow my boat. Great in the snow, but not really off road tough, I don't think.
Personal opinion is a good thing, and everyone is entitled to one. The hard part is separating informed opinion from someone who is just blowing hot air....
