Its not the trucks I object to its the 300hp 12mpg unneeded gas wasters.
For 10 years I had an S15 Jimmy with a 2.8l v6. Good truck for a college kid, always got me where I needed to go it just didn't do it in any great hurry. I think that one was rated for something like 95hp. It did fine on the highway and just great in offroad. Got 25mpg just about all the time lasted 150,000 miles before the body rotted off.
Replaced it with a Cherokee, that had a 4.0l I6. Got about 19mpg but had something like 200hp. Went like stink, lousy offroad, got hung up on everything. That one only lasted 8 years 108,000 miles and the floor totally rotted away.

Now, my Dad's got a Chevy Tracker, good offroad, more power than my Jimmy had, 2.0l I4 something like 120hp, 30mpg. 5 years, 90k and still ticking.
