True. However light duty trucks fit my personal preferences better then a full-sized truck. The only reason that a small or Mid size SUV such as the Saturn Vue, or Ford Escape are not appealing to me is the lack of an open cargo bed. Again this is a preference on my part.
TO be honest at this point, almost any newer Vehicle gets better gas milage, than the 2001 Firebird i have, or the 1997 ford ranger my girlfriend drives.
Hell i'm still paying on the Firebird, and don't drive it any more. (I car pool to work)
