WRT F150;

I am so upset with the state of the auto market when it comes to pricing.

Manufacturing margins are enormous when it comes to cars.

The F150 is no different.

A two seater (effectively) vehicle stamped out of metal and plastic should never cost as much as those things do.

I hate car companies and their pricing models.

Look up the chicken tax bill that passed a few decades ago that basically stopped any foreign car manufacturers from selling pickups in the US. That's why trucks are so much more expensive than other types of cars.

Also why you have hugh f-serious cars and not more reasonable sized cars like Hilux's

Because small trucks require more fuel- and emissions-efficient engines than larger ones.
