Pickup Trucks
Fuel efficiency is not a word that we often see used next to pickups. This has been true in the past and even today to a great extent.

Pickup Trucks: A very American choice
Nowhere is the pickup a more popular choice than the streets of US. In other countries what we call small pickup trucks are used as standard pickups and anything bigger is regarded as a commercial vehicle because of its size. However, in US the standard pickup is used by many people as a commuter car because their life entails it or just to boost their ego. Whatever the reason for driving a pickup, everyone is complaining that they get low mpg. This is not surprising as they are big, heavy, mostly four wheel drive and don't have good aerodynamic characteristics. However, even with the current selection, there are better choices in terms of fuel economy and the rising number of hybrid and diesel options are making the offering even better. That is, if you really must buy one.
