    Many people think this one looks badass .....
    YMMV

    It won't be a little air-cooled Cheapo-Suzuki sized pickup price wise ...... but you get what your payload o cash pays for

    That's plenty for a pickup truck, which would typically have its entire payload lifted in and out by hand.

    Want F-350? they still make 'em.

    So it's a fashion accessory then? Something something all hat?

    It does look badass. Heavy on "bad" and heavy on "nice person".

    I think the styling is based on legos or something.

    The current Ranger is 1860 pounds, which is supposedly the highest in the class. This EV is around the size of the preceding Ranger; it is over 2 feet shorter than the current one.

    I don't need a pickup truck every day. 1/4 or half ton with a box that you don't want to carry dirty junk in is just not practical, unless you frequently need a pickup truck most of the time.

    My Class 1 basket trailer cost about $600 to completely set up, weighs 400 pounds and has a load capacity of 1,500 pounds; the same as a 3/4 ton truck. I only need it on very few occasions. And, in South Carolina, no licensing or registration is needed.

    So, like most individuals here, I don't need a pickup truck.

    missed the part about the size, I thought it was a full size.

    Leadfoot, I have a 2500 and sometimes wish I grabbed a 3500.
