With the advent of extended- and crew-cab bodies the typical pickup is every bit as comfortable as a Nissan Altima, but orders of magnitude more functional. Bring the kids, load the dog and even leave a spot for your ornery spouse; with a pickup you can bring it all and still tow a trailer and haul brick pavers.
