You seem to be comparing diesels with gasoline engines which is surprising since you are Toyota owner who knows how to use capitalization.
You may not know it, but lots of gasoline engines make it to 308K miles if you do all maintenance as designed.
I’d argue that most people who own the big three don’t follow maintenance schedules, so you are really comparing people who do regular maintenance vs people who don’t ... not Toyota vs the big three.
There is probably a Toyota business reason that they aren’t producing 3/4 ton and above trucks.
