Why do Americans drive such huge cars?

I’ve recently visited the US for the first time. I saw lots and lots of really big cars on the streets (like Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Silverado and so on), even in big cities! Their trunks were empty in 99% of cases, so it’s not like people are hauling cargo all the time. And there was only one person in the car most of the time.

I checked that the engines on those things are enormous, I can’t imagine how much the gas must cost

    Why are Europeans brainwashed to believe "efficiency" is the most important trait in life?
    Tiny cars.
    Tiny apartments.
    Tiny paychecks.
    Why have you accepted a life of "good enough"?

      This. Efficiency is overrated because too often its just creates more complicated, more computers, more expensive and more frequently failing parts for cars. Also for other things too like heating systems for homes as another example. Europeans are stupid garbage people who also want to ruin America with their false believes on "improvements".

      We are talking about the same part of the world that made communism a mainstream political ideology. Of course the citizenry would be a bunch of crabs and a bucket always upset at their neighbor having slightly more than them. The same people that like to talk about trucks will also ask you why do you need a 400hp sports car. They'll also talk about your penis or masculinity because they don't understand you just enjoy owning it.

        I'm not a bot. Big trucks are too heavy and have a shit center of gravity for central PA backroads and trying to save gas. I would get one of the old land barges because they look cool, but trucks are bought by people that are coping. Usually hicks, usually emasculated suburbanites, usually alcoholics.

    The CAFE standards give more lenient fuel efficiency requirements for larger cars, so whenever auto makers are short on efficiency to make the law's requirements, they make the car larger rather than improving efficiency.

    Because our fuel efficiency laws are less restrictive the larger the car is. It is difficult to make a small car that meets high efficiency standards for a certain price, but easy and profitable to make large car to much lower standards for the same price.

    While gas is expensive here, it's nowhere near as costly as it is in Europe. Car makers love SUVs and big trucks because they're **WAY** more profitable to sell.

    Psychologically, many Americans imagine themselves as rugged pioneers and outdoors people --- even if they live in the city or a suburb (usually named for the trees destroyed to make the suburb), so large trucks appeal to that fantasy.

    In addition, they're seen as safer vehicles since many are 4WD or AWD. And they have more room so they can carry the 3 tons of "kid stuff" required for their one kid.

    Trucks are typically more reliable than cars. any truck by a manufacturer will be more reliable and durable than their most reliable car.
    For this same reason, trucks also hold value much better than your typical car. that, and because they have a wider range of uses, and thus, appeal to a wider range of potential buyers when you go to sell them. Trucks can be used as family haulers, work horses, movers, towing. there are cars that can do a combination of these things, but not all of them, and certainly not as well as a truck.

    A fricking jeep gladiator will hold value better than your average non-GT3/2 911. its honestly higher IQ to buy a truck. especially as a used beater. you'll get most (sometimes damn near all) of your money back. you won't get that with any car outside of special edition sports cars.

            Because they want something suitable for literally everything. Tacoma, frontier, ranger, whatever. Midsize trucks are literally the penultimate do-all vehicle and they hold their value as good as full-sizes do. But they get flak from both ends of the spectrum for moronic reasons. Anti-truck people say they’re ugly and bloated compared to the compact trucks of old, and hardcore hick truggers shit on them because "the got dam bed too smull. That ain’t no trugg." Even though bed-size has literally nothing to do with how vehicles are classified as trucks.

            That's true for me and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I got a 2 year old Ranger XLT FX4 with 40k for the same price I would have had to pay for a 5+ year old F-150 with 80k+. The tighter turn radius is also a godsend where I live, lots of places where I can just barely make it in one shot while it'd be a 3-point turn in a half ton with a 2'+ bigger turn radius.
