At Winn-Dixie parking lot. Some dude says that to me.

Um...its not a truck, but ok. It's the compliment that counts.

But wait...it is a truck. At 5500lbs, I remember signing my ppwrk and it did say truck. 😂

People call SUV's trucks nowadays, not sure why or when that started.

Same with coupe SUV's. Porsche has a new Cayenne "coupe" to go along with their regular Cayenne SUV.
 

BULL

Oh NO! Not that guy!

Does a truck require a truck bed?

All about weight. Not sure at what weight the classification becomes truck, I'm guessing 5000lbs.

I have a used car business. All SUV’s are now apparently called Jeeps. Caught me off guard the fist few times because we had no real Jeeps on the lot at the time. Now i just shake my head.

As I recall, that "truck" nonsense started when they could skate by some emission requirements by calling the little 'wagons "trucks".

In real life it's easy: Trucks you put things on, cars and vans you put things in.

Same with "Jet-Ski"...for every personal watercraft.

I'm sure Kawasaki didn't mind it at first, but Yamahas are called 'Waverunners' and so on. 😂

Meanwhile, my girlfriend refers to her Ram 3500 crew cab long bed as a car. A car that can pull her horse trailer, but still.

2003 was the last year Durango/Dakota chassis were shared (if remembering correctly). I sometimes refer to my Durango as a truck, which it clearly isn't but is built on the truck chassis. I reckon I should stop calling it a truck.

I admit, I'm guilty. I use "dumbass" basically for every redneck, idiot, goofball, mouth breather, backwards cap wearing, or other intellectually challenged moron out there. I should be more specific.

All of the Ramchargers I had years ago were classified as "station wagons" on the title. I don't think the term SUV was in wide use back then. I guess since they weren't the classic definition of trucks or vans to the DMV, they landed on station wagon. When I bought my first one, a 1976 and it said that on the title I thought the guy was trying to swindle me.
