Im sure others here will agree, car makers today dont make any good small trucks....or any small trucks really. Look at the current small pickups, the chevy, the ranger and dakota. They are all pretty big trucks, at least compared to out toyotas or the old nissan hardbody or even the older s10's and rangers. on top of that, they are loaded with crap you dont need in a truck. I dont want bluetooth, satnav or other useless crap. And if I do want it I can buy the one I want and install it later on. I dont see why a truck should have carpet either. Trucks are for work. I think car makers have forgoten this. Why should small trucks have traction control (which sucks) or TCS or other silly control systems (other than anti lock brakes, those are benifitial) I was looking at the base model, smallest chevy 2wd truck. It was about 25k! Looking at the orignal price of my '87 4wd yota, it was just under $10,000. Even with inflation, the same truck should cost us around 20k today. Thats a 4wd truck with a engine that will do well over 200k miles for 5k less than a modern 2wd with a engine that will be lucky to do 200k. And the same is true of the modern ranger and dakota's. I know some people want/need a big truck with a huge engine that has an interior and rides like a car. But what about us that would much prefer a lower cost-rugged and simple truck. Just a cab sitting on a frame with a torque 4cyl engine connected to a basic 4wd transmission. A radio and AC is nice, but anything else is a waste of my money. Care makers claim they build what consumers want....but in reality they keep making stuff with more gear/features so that people will want to buy the new model. Plus, they make money on every stupid feature....both in the initial sale and in the repair cost down the road.
