One smart trick with a new vehicle, esp these trucks with large flat surfaces -- if you stay up on your paint waxing or in other words don't let the paint get all oxidized - you could wax/polish etc the truck very easily.
Pay attention the to HOOD and roof. The sides are easier. Orbital buffers are always on sale for $20 - makes for very easy work to apply your favorite wax or polish - then wipe the stuff off with a large microfiber towel.
Or take it to a car wash detail shop if you can afford (or trust) them.
