99% sure you intended to reply to uhsguy, so I'm tagging him here.

Although I am one of those morons who overpays for pickup trucks...they keep getting more expensive and we keep buying them. 10 years ago I had a Silverado whose sticker was like 20k less than the Sierra I currently drive, and at the time it was a top of the line model, while the Sierra is upper-mid range. Shit's crazy. They can keep doing that because there's a giant tariff on foreign trucks. Gives GM and Ford a 25% cushion to work with...criminal to anyone free trade minded, though it keeps my wife's bonus cushy year after year.

I figure everyone reads everything at this point, there's like 10 messages a day.

They can keep charging more for trucks because they're mostly bought by rich people and real estate agents. Who don't give a shit about towing.

At the very least it will split the market into ev and non ev trucks which will add cost. Also charging with a 20’ trailer has got to be fun. I think the lighting does under 100 miles so going to eastern wa will require a stop
