1961 International pickup ad

1961 International Ad

America’s attitude toward pickup trucks has changed a little in the past few decades. At one point, owning a pickup was a point of pride and humility–a sort of “If it was good enough for my daddy, it’s good enough for me” kind of thing.

The best evidence that many modern-day pickup-truck buyers don’t use their trucks as “real” trucks is bed length. For example, Crew Cab versions of the Chevrolet Silverado can be had with a 5.5-foot cargo box—a bed far too small to accommodate the traditional 4 X 8 sheet of plywood, much less a couch. This is telling, because Crew Cab models are far and away the best-selling Silverados.

1987 Volkswagen Vanagon

Fun minivan-history fact: The 1984 Toyota Van actually reached the U.S. market a few months before the first Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager did. That would be the only way in which the quirky mid-engine Japanese van would trump Chrysler’s family-friendly duo, as the media and public vastly preferred the latter.

Denali represents the top rung of the GMC Sierra truck ladder, its station announced by a ritzy, chrome-laden grille and fancy trim. The 4WD version tested came to $63,285 with destination charge.

2016 GMC Denali

Denali’s signature “chain mail” grille is what separates the top-end Yukon from its lesser stablemates. It also likely contributed to our tester’s $74,000 sticker.

1976 Ford Van

1975 Ford Econoline

In the early Seventies, after low-lead gas and rising insurance costs put the kibosh on the original muscle-car era, a number of car lovers turned their creative attention to vans. While the early adopters of the era did most of the custom work on their vans themselves, it wasn’t long before automakers realized they could sell “custom” vans right from the factory.
