I have mixed emotions about the new offerings - while they are quite advanced in terms of longevity and reliability, there are a lot of gadgets that accompany the engine/trans/chassis that do not last as long. Chief among them are the computerized controls and bells & whistles. And the price !

I've driven 3/4-ton 4X4 pickups for over 20 years, and have put plenty of miles on them, mostly as a daily driver. They work for me on the weekends & camping trips, too. If you're going to go for the 4X4 gusto, they're not going to beat a Jeep (whatever the make), but for day-in, day-out driving, hauling, and some reasonable off-roading, they do just fine.
