Yes ah.Saji its always practical, learning through the experience. But the thing is, it seems to be that there won't be anything to implement with the little truck. It's all there, isn't it?

Anand I also agree with you as per new technology and fuel efficiency is concerned. But still spending a hell on a truck and then burning it off road doesn't seems wise. But yet I would say all those people who can afford a truck can enjoy it the way they would like.

True far 911, all ways there will be a segment in the market who will think like almost same. That's why there are many brands and model exists in the market.

Turbineman, true that I also agree with you on this. Truks (pickups) have now become a fashion. This image collection is witness to that.

@ far911, apparently your argument is quite valid. It looks odd roaming around off-road in an expensive new vehicle. But then it looks odd because we are used to seeing old vehicles at such places. So it is more of a cultural thing. New advanced vehicle may be costly to buy but new vehicles burn less fuel than old ones. Besides, new vehicles with technological advancements offer some other obvious benefits.

@mrdon: Yes its always better to have hands on experience. Then only you will gain experience in a real life scenario. That is more important and valuable than the professional qualification these days.

Charles,

It seems as though the auto manufacturers' exhibits were designed for total engagment by the public. Lots of hands-on activities for everyone (from kids to adults). Sounds like a good show!

Yes, the Toyota off-road course was probably the most spectacular exhibit for attendees. But there were others...Ford had the Mustang pinball game, Toyota had the teen driving simulator and Ford had an off-road simulator. Toyota also had its FT-1 on the Gran Turismo game, which could be "driven" by attendees.

Wow, that's pretty awesome. Toyota really wanted to impress the public with this exhibit and they did. Talk about engaging the audience! Very nice!!
