Do you have the craving for a vehicle that can pull a trailer loaded full of bucking broncos? Do you need something that you can dramatically dump landscaping pavers or a load of dirt into? Do you want everyone to ask you to help them move? Maybe you're an expert on the phenomena known as American trucks.

On that last point, it wasn't too long ago that people laughed at the idea of a luxurious truck - just look at the reception for the Lincoln Mark LT. Yes, it was a poor rebadging job of the F-150, but at the same time Cadillac was selling a poor rebadged job of the Chevy Avalanche and nobody seemed to care.
