Because they are car guys not truck guys. Hauling camping gear does not count.

Its not only motortrend though it seems everyone is all over the chevy this year, is it really superior or have your tax dollars been buying oodles of advertising? I just don't quite get why no one has recognized the ford that has been completely redesigned.

It is rather simple.. Working people buy a vehicle that is superior to the others.. Go around looking at what most contractors drive. Its a better built truck that will take the abuse that others wont live upto..
