The Ram Rebel may cost more but we're getting a lot more tech with that price and a sportier pickup truck. It's also got more umph when towing another truck, sure Toyota is known for reliability but that thing is a pedestrian people and things hauler compared to the Rebel.

My wife had a Camry many years ago, and it was rated the most reliable car made by Consumer Reports and others. It had an oil leak at the back of the engine, very slight, that dripped oil slowly onto the exhaust manifold heat shield. That caused it to always have an obnoxious burnt oil smell to it, nearly overpowering. Even after sitting overnight it stunk badly.

I personally took that car to the dealership no less than 7 times to get the oil leak fixed. It would go away for a couple of months, then return. After 7 different attempts over 3 years, it still returned to leaking and stunk to high heaven. Letters to Toyota didn't help, and a second dealership was also unable to fix it. The only thing the dealerships were good for was charging me a lot of money, but they weren't able to fix a simple oil leak. Replaced the same part every time.

Last Toyota I'll ever own.

I just played that several times in slo-mo. I think it's a trick of the camera lens - looks like it bounced down behind that slight rise, you can see the tires go way down, too, and then back up over the rise. And there's no extra dust on the bumper or scuffs visible to indicate that it actually bumped. They're using a long lens and the perspective can get messed up.

That's what it looks like to me, at least.

No way it bottomed out! ...not sure what you were looking at. If the truck had bottomed, they would have mentioned it.
