Yeah, its, literally, a heavy duty truck. Its been fitted to be a regular usage vehicle tho, with a normalized interiors, etc etc etc. Thats the
thing. It'd be a great tow truck, or transportation company truck, not a regular car, and yet, thats what its specifically being sold as.
I mean, remember a while back, there were people suing mcdonalds and whatnot for making fatty unhealthy food and presenting it like it was healthy?
They were something of a public backlash, peopel were like 'wth are you talking about, this isn't mcdonalds fault'. Now, what do you see? They
realized that they can do whatever they want, and every thing is 'double meat, double bacon' or breakfast sandwiches that have enough calories for
an entire day.
So now what're the car companies doing? They look at the public and say 'crap, gas is expensive, peopel are starting to realize that suvs aren't
safer than regular cars at all, and that the whole big truck thing is kind of infantile and silly'. But SUV sales and Hummer sales kept doing well,
so now, what do we get? This monstrosity.
Its not unlike the movies. After 911, everyone was like 'well, people are stressed, movies won't be about war and terrorism, it'll be nice stuff,
traditional like and what not'. But then, some violent movies came out, and people loved it. Now star wars if is super violent film, a movie about
a comic books is wildly violent, the jesus movie's only about him being tortured to death, and the next big film is about the crusades of all
