4. Rugged Sensibility
True trucks are built on sturdy, ladder-style frames. The body is separate from the chassis, just the way God intended. This makes them tough; it’s part of the reason they can handle off roading with ease and carry such heavy loads. Plus, do you remember what vehicle Bill Paxton drove in the tornado-themed movie Twister? A pickup truck, of course! A mostly shiny-red Dodge Ram 1500, back when Dodge still made trucks. He wasn’t mincing about in Honda del Sol or a BMW 3 Series wagon, no. To chase storms he chose a truck. What else could stand up to flying cows and Helen Hunt? If a pickup is good enough for a B-list celebrity in a mediocre film it should be good enough for you.
