there's no denying how good modern trucks are, even at their high prices. i like the idea of a full size for a number of reasons, partly is my own size, partly is the added utility i would get out of it. i'm only interested in trucks with considerable off road credentials, but nothing like a Raptor. it's frustrating looking at these models based on how companies interpret what someone like me wants from a style perspective. the Ram Rebel is by all accounts, an awesome vehicle with great features, performance and overall design, but the name, interior and badging is pure cheese. it's fucking terrible. who in their right mind would be seen wearing clown shoes like this? so they ruined what could have been a top choice for me.
the Tacoma (and my old Frontier) is one of the only trucks that looks good, has solid performance and quality, and has understated off road styling and colours that appeal to so many of my peers. but i'd feel like a sheeple to be joining the Taco state of mind club.... the new Titan Pro4 x has appeal but they've bought into the over styled bs look as well.
it's like this overt macho looks gets carried away every ten years or so and we're at peak gold chains and open shirt right now in the truck world.
