I remember hearing somewhere, don't remember the source or how reliable it is, 
that in the US a light truck is considered a commercial vehicle and as such 
attracts tax concessions that are not available for passenger vehichles 
(cars).

So a company that supplies employees with light trucks is engaging in a tax 
deductible business expense, while a company that supplies employees with 
passenger vehicles has the same expense without the tax deduction.

If anyone knows if this is correct, please indicate.

Gordon
