    A prius inspired truck! There's a seller. I'm sure there will be a market segment for it though.

    Unfortunately, I'm not in it.

    That thing is massively ugly, especially that yellow accented interior. I'm sure that concept won't go far, as many concepts usually don't.

    WOW, learn how to read you own link. And stop copying quotes from other sites. The "metrosexual" quote has been beaten to death in the TN thread.

    ^Yeah, that's just it. Every new design has it's detractors. We don't like this but I doubt very much we're the intended market. I could see if this were labeled the new Tacoma or something, of course we'd be upset then.

    Yeah, it feels great to "rip apart" someone who keeps bringing up old thread after old thread for no reason and isn't original.

    Hopefully this is one of those "concept" cars that never actually go into production. It's the ugliest thing I have ever seen. I can't believe they are still trying to call the ridgeline a truck anyway.

    Some of the features might be nice. But some of them just seem stupid. I mean, folding down the back wall to extend the bed.... Cool idea, completely useless in the North 10 months out of the year! I mean, wtf do you do during the winter? Your extendable bed means you can't keep the warm air in the cab when it's -20F out. Ok, so you don't haul big things on those days.... But still, how many months of the year is it 30F or lower out? What about rain? I thought it was stupid on the avalanche, and I still think it's stupid.

    Living in Texas, though, I like the idea. We don't hit -20F :p
