Yes, Mr Don, when I was at the Chicago Show (at the preview), reporters were driving the Toyota through an off-road course that included the water pit. I believe they did the same throughout the remainder of the show. Hats off to Toyota for a great exhibit.

@ asicdesignengineer, you covered some really good points here. Credit should be given where we think is appropriate. It may be "manly" or dashing for some people, but most of the people opt for trucks because of their versatility. If such versatile vehicles could be made fuel efficient as well, that will be fantastic.

Using a motion controlled simulator that NASA would be happy to have to sell trucks is impressive on its own - the trucks they simulate have a lot to live up to as a result.

The Toyota TRD Pro vehicle exhibit looks awesome! If my eyes are not deceiving me, the Chicago Auto Show actually showed the pickup driving out of a water-pit? Their exhibit looks like a mini monster truck show! Great slides Charles!

I guess it is a state of mind that people like to sit on high wheels and looking down on every one passing by. Only people who like to drive a heavy feel vehicles like to use trucks or people going of road.

For me Lot of people are still on savings and Kia soulEV is a vehicle to look upto with range upto 80 to 100 miles on all electric. Sounds interesting.

You're right, naperlou. The Maserati is cool. This year, there were a number of new cars at the Chicago show and the Detroit show that really emphasized horsepower. Power is definitely rising, even as fuel efficiency climbs.

You're right, turbineman. Over the years, trucks somehow became a "feel-good buy," rather than a matter of utility, for some consumers. Some buyers wanted to sit up high and feel big. I know many contractors and trades people who own and need trucks, so I'm not talking about them. But there's a growing contingent of people who drive shiny, tricked out trucks that just don't look like they serve a real practical purpose. Obviously, it's their perogative, but I just don't understand it.
