Yes, people who live in rural areas do drive trucks - and for a very good reason. My last trip to town, I come home with 50 lbs of dog food, 50 lbs of goat food, 40 lbs of cat food, 30 lbs of cat litter, 2 sheets of plywood, 1 bundle of shingles, 2 10' downspouts, 8 tomato cages and 20 or so grocery bags. There are no trains where I live, and hauling all that 7 miles down a gravel road on a bike just won't work!


In a way, it kind of makes sense that Ford would up production of trucks. If we assume that most urban dwellers will ride mass transit, then that only leaves the rural dwellers to drive cars. And what do people who live in rural areas drive? Trucks.
