      I don't get how they can't seem to make a similar sized truck with today's fuel economy.

        Most fuel economy gains are through aerodynamics in the United States due to the speed that America drives at. It's a lot of highway driving. By the nature of how a truck is shaped, you're looking at a drag coefficient of 0.35-0.50, which is dogshit but there's very few things that automakers can do about it aside from drivetrain wizardry and lots of aero panels.

        Truck owners also have the habit of removing aero from their vehicles, as well as add on modifications that worsen aero as well as add weight to the vehicle (i.e. overlanders, lifted truck, etc.) Trucks are awful baselines to try to squeeze fuel economy from; it's a miracle they even got close to what they did.

      >Fat Americans got fat
      Pretty much. I tried a new trugg and one from the 1990s and it's a world of difference of how much seating area there is. The bucket seat of a new truck may as well be a bench seat with how wide they are. The one from the 90s feels normal but certainly won't for someone who tips the scales at closer to 300 lbs.

      That overweight stat is worsening too. America got so fricking fat that the CDC separated overweight and obese populations, and the obese outpace the overweight. It's 77% total in the USA for being a fat frick in 2024, and the CDC trends this towards 80% by 2030, which is wishful thinking that the trending will slow.

      This but unironically. They went away when Americans had more expendable income and less fat.

            CAFE isn't static, its standards adjust over time.

    small vehicle footprints mean having to pass unrealistic fuel economy standards now

      Even the Prius won't meet CAFE by 2027 and will incur penalties. Only vehicle segment that does are EVs and people aren't willing to warm up to them. The big bottlenecks are charging infrastructure and charging times. Automakers are bending the knee and using Tesla's systems and infrastructure, but charging times require several large jumps in battery tech which simply do not exist yet.

        It’s really a method denying private, individual transportation. They can’t just outright ban cars, but they’ll absolutely squeeeze us until it’s impossible to not live outside of diverse, equitable, walkable cities. (Aka brown hellscapes)

            quite a lot actually. Think of every darkie that’s in a position of power or influence over you. Whether it’s a manger, government bureaucrat, or government official. Then calculate the allies the other anon brings up and it’s quite a significant amount of influence they have over you in some direct or indirect way. The proper and natural number should be zero in a perfect world, but we don’t get to enjoy such a paradise

    CAFE,emissions,crash regulations, chicken tax, government mandated equipment. All those forced them to either become larger and more expensive.
    Then companies realized they can sell $90000 luxury trucks and make way more money than 3 base models.
    A Ranger used to be about 30% less than a F-150, now it's only 12%.

      That is a consoomer problem. They got greedy and automakers gave them exactly what they wanted, which is a BOF luxury car they can't afford.

          That's not how fleet sales work at all.

          How bout you just order what you want?

          Because people are low IQ and a salesman tells them they can have a better truck for $50/mo more right now. You really think people are clued into the fact that that's $3000 over the life of a loan when they hear it? No chance.

      it's just not the same. a jimny with a tray bed would be very neat.
      I saw a lifted hyundai santa cruz that looked not bad, but you know that under the skin it's too light duty to be cool. I couldn't help but think it needed a small but stout 4 banger mounted longitudinal, a boxed ladder frame, and a selectable transfercase. It could keep the IFS and still be wicked
      I know it would never happen, but it was a nice daydream.
