Doug DeMuro’s business model demands he buy a vehicle after January 1st and write articles about it. Speculation and lobbying for the next vehicle has happily become an annual tradition. But with January only a month away, what should Doug buy? A pickup, that’s what.

Pickups, particularly those used for city driving, get a bad rap. They’re huge, wasteful, genital-compensating barges that should only be driven by those with the bluest collars. They’re even worse than SUVs, which Doug seems to love (Range Rover) and hate (H1).

But instead of shouting on the internet about the rolling embodiment of Red State America, let’s instead listen to Doug shout about pickups. Doug, please buy a full-size pickup. Show us what urban pickup life is like.
