Every year, the American vehicle makers sell FAR more light trucks, quite 
often used as suburban run-abouts, than they sell normal cars.  It's very
good to read Yanks intend going-on doing their bit conserving fossil fuel:

remarkable-new-features

Ford has confirmed that the 2011 model of its F-150 SVT Raptor truck 
would become a bit more outrageous. The standard 5.4-liter V-8 will be 
replaced by the future 411-horsepower 6.2-liter engine. In addition, the 
new truck will be a four-door SuperCrew cab as compared with the existing 
current Raptor which is equipped with an extended two-door body. 

The F-150 SVT Raptor truck’s 6.2-liter engine is a single-overhead-
camshaft design ... The company described the upcoming vehicle as the 
most powerful half-ton pickup truck on the market ..

bones-it-needs/

The 2011 Dodge Durango from Chrysler has just been unveiled. The new 
model has three rows of seating for those with larger families .. and a 
(more powerful) 5.7 liter V8 HEMI engine .. There’s been nothing released 
from Chrysler about fuel-economy estimates.
