I am curious if the high-revving nature of the new 3.5L will affect long-term reliability. I know that in cars, high-revvers can last a long time. Just look at old Honda Civics and other similar cars. These are passenger cars however and are not under load.
Do engines with more low-end torque have a dependability advantage over smaller high-revving engines? I don't tow often with my gen 1, but when I have to make it rev on the hills I always cringe a bit wondering if that is wearing my engine out more than normal.

The 2gr has been in many Toyota vehicles for a long time...it's not a new platform. Look at the wiki page for the 2gr and see which models have it and then look at their reliability.

Btw, the 2gr has 6 bolt mains and a forged bottom end. No reason why it won't be reliable.
