    Seems to be an ongoing debate with people I know. A truck is classified as a 18 wheeler and a pickup is a light duty civilian truck. I find myself calling my Tacoma a truck more often than pickup to be honest. How about the rest of you?

    If i had an older vehicle it would be a pick-up (1950-80's) if its new its a truck.. pick-up seems to date my 2010 and i feel the term doesn't do it justice for all the gadgets it has

    I always referred to body-on-frame vehicles as trucks, whether it has a bed or is an SUV. I'll refer to a 4runner as a truck too.

    I call the vehicle pulling an 18 wheeler a tractor, but that's my insurance side talking.

    I drive both ...

    A pickup better be able to carry a whole lot more than my taco can and have a whole lot more power before it will ever qualify as a truck. Tractor-trailers, dump trucks, flatbeds, well rigs ... those are trucks - we just qualify for pickups. Agreed that calling our tacos a truck sounds better, but it just ain't right;)

    Red hot glass pack muffler dumped preaxle raptor liner bed and top rails and fenderflares and rocker panels. Hunter side steps. Plasti-dipped upper fenders and emblems. satin black spray paint here and there inside and out. 5100's set to 1.75" up front and modified zuk mod coil spring lift for about 2" in rear paired with 5100 also. C channel front bumper. Maxxis bighorn 255/85/16
    a truck has a cab and a bed. a car has a trunk, and SUV gets crappy gas mileage and a van kinda looks like an SUV and gets better gas mileage. My wife drive an 07 Rav4 and its classified as a wagon go figure but i im not sure what to call it (car mostly it does have a spot under the floor board where most cars spare tires go that could be considered a trunk). anyway thats how i classify vehicles.

    Depends on context. In normal conversation, I refer to it as a truck. If talking about moving something, I'll say throw it in the back of the pickup.

    I've always called cars cars and suv's and trucks I call trucks. I sometimes refer to my fiances wrangler as a truck but mostly I just call it the jeep, but I think from now on I'm just going to refer to my truck as "the greatness."
