What's important in a new pickup?

We've got a new poll on the site this week that I found pretty interesting.


I guess, personally, reputation and fuel efficiency are pretty important to me, but I don't do a ton of towing. Price is pretty high on my list as well, I guess. 


What do you think? Why did you vote the way you did here? Just curious to see if others consider the same factors as much, or if I'm just crazy!

Ask John for a raise then price won't be a factor.


Really what is really important is how cool you look driving it.

Re: What's important in a new pickup?

How about licensing, taxes and regulation?  To be eligible for the write-off, it has to be at least 1/2T with at least a 6' box.  So, if I am looking at that when I replace my S10 I'll step up a size.

Some bigger pickups have different insurance and tax treatment, as well.  Probably not a major consideration, but...
