Do you need four-wheel drive (or even rear-wheel drive) to go crashing around on dirt roads? As I learned putting hundreds of miles on fire roads in the Trinity Alps behind the wheel of a CRX, hell no!
The Mexican-market Volkswagen Nuevo Saveiro looks good, but real pickups need a blue oval on the grille, right? Right!
What's the smallest pickup you can buy new in the USA? The 3,000-plus-pound Ranger? If that's more truck than you need, you'll have no choice but to shop for a pre-Cupholder Era used truck… or move to Mexico!
