SUVs and Trucks

SUVs AND TRUCKS….By now it’s a cliche to note that very few owners of four-wheel-drive SUVs ever take them off road. However, the other day I read that nine out of ten pickup truck owners never put anything in the bed of their truck.

I don’t remember where I saw this, but can it really be true? It’s pretty easy to see the attraction of an SUV even if you’re just driving around town, but what’s the attraction of a cramped, crowded pickup truck if you never put anything in the back?

Has anyone else ever heard this statistic? Any ideas if it’s really true?
