Even as Americans are moving away from
gas-guzzling vehicles, the pickup truck remains king of the road in
A report that tracks vehicle registrations for car dealers says
light trucks were the four top-selling models in September. No. 1
on the list, according to Cross-Sell Report, was the Chevrolet
pickup, followed by the GMC pickup, the Ford F-series pickup and
the Toyota Tundra pickup.

remain popular. They cite a variety of reasons, including bad
weather, lousy roads and a Maine lifestyle that includes towing
boats and hauling trash to the dump.
