Today they're part small luxury car, part minivan, and only part pickup. You might well just be looking at what pickups will morph into, in another 20 years, as astronomical oil price cause people to demand fuel efficiency combined with more cargo hauling capabilities than a hatchback can possibly offer. Perhaps fuel efficiency and crash worthiness rules will tighten up so much that compact pickups get to be just that small and aerodynamic, too.

The thing in the article doesn't look much like any of 'em. Re: Not a pickup (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-10-08 03:48 (#2T5Z) Bah. Pickups changed in 1997 and they ain't been the same since....says the person driving a 1991 F-350.
