What's the point? Does F really make much on small pickups? (I really have no idea) There was a time when the small pickup was the second car for many that used to own a big pickup for farm, small business but thought they couldn't afford it anymore... really an outgrowth of the first gas crisis, I think. But if you have really efficient vehicles that can tow, a trailer is a much better solution than a "small pickup" (sort of an oxymoron ha). A new Explorer or even Escape that can tow 4000 (not 3000) lbs would be a winner over a small pickup in my book...of course I am not the market. If Ford captures the upper end of the market, with the fattest margin and leaves little to the lame, maybe that's a good thing. BTW it did not escape my notice that in the last few years Toyota went BIGGER.... I am thinking that says something about the market.
