5. High-Riding Visibility
Like the crow’s nest on a pirate ship, trucks offer commanding views. Drivers sit up high and can survey the road around them to keep a look out for treasure galleons or good deals on gas-station burritos. The taller stance makes it easy to see over surrounding vehicles. Why is traffic stopped? If you’re driving a Porsche 911 there’s no hope of seeing the grizzly accident scene/escaped wild animal/dumpster fire that’s ahead. In a four-by-four pickup you have a front-row seat. Don’t let some dinky Toyota Y-Arrrrh-is block your view of the road ahead, step up to a pickup.
