Because a truck is typically 1) heavier, 2) less aerodynamic, 3) has lower gear ratios (to better pull/haul a load), and 4) they don't *have* to get good mileage - Federal CAFE standards don't apply to most trucks
I hate it when people pull a bunch of random nonsense out of their A** trying to sound smart. CAFE Standards as of 2007 apply to all vehicles under 10000lbs GVWR sold in The United States of America and the new CAFE standards that are going to apply to model years 2012-2017 are going to be even worse.
Yes, diesel trucks generally get much better gas mileage than regular gas trucks. They even sometimes get better gas mileage than hybrid trucks.
yes trucks are better than because cars you can do a lot more with a truck than you can with cars
yes trucks are better than car because you can do a lot more thing with truck than you can cars
They don't. Diesels get better mileage and last longer.
Compared to cars, pickup trucks get bad gas mileage. However, if you can find a hybrid or especially fuel-efficient model of truck (for example, Ford trucks tend to be slightly more fuel efficient than Toyota trucks) you may be able to get good gas mileage.
Since motorcycles normally get better mileage than cars/trucks, I would think it's obvious that the demand for them increases.
Newer cars are geared towards being more fuel efficient than older cars. Cars made in 2012, depending on engine size, will likely get much better gas mileage than your 1993 Buick. These older cars were geared more towards comfort and power and less towards improved gas mileage.
Ford trucks are usually worse than other makes when comparing gas mileage. Brands like Toyota and Mazda are better.
There are many reasons why hybrid cars are better than regular cars. One reason is that hybrid cars get better gas mileage than regular vehicles. Another reason is that hybrid cars help protect the environment.
no, because cars are smaller in size and trucks are bigger in size
Trucks take longer to stop than passenger cars.
Bicycles give you more gas mileage.
Hybrid cars have substantially lower exhaust emissions than normal cars and are better for the environment. Hybrid cars of all types get much better mileage per gallon of gas than normal cars.
Chevy is far better than ford in most cars and trucks. The Chevy 2500 HD is better than the ford F 250. CHEVY IS BETTER!!
the advantage diesel pickup trucks have is that they have been around for a while, the technology has been proven, and they are cheaper. The disadvantage is the gas mileage. Compare and decide for yourself.
no definatley not, Toyota is a car company that mostly focuses on cars and how fuel efficient they can make those cars but do not pay very much attention to their trucks. so in my oppinion chevs are better but really u should just go with a ford
Most are diesel powered stick shift models that are smaller and lighter than American cars.
Motorised cars and trucks have existed for less than 120 years.
1972 pickups where not equipped to handled better gas mileage so of course there mileage is lower then the 2010. The newer trucks but more equipment in to handle better gas mileage with new technology.
A smaller car with 3 or 4 cylinders usually gets the best gas mileage. Also, hybrid cars tend to get better mileage on the city streets than regular cars because of their regenerative braking.
The demand for cars and trucks varies each year by the consumer depending on the economy, gas prices, and other economic factors such as income. Therefore, Chevy may sell more cars than trucks in one year and more trucks than cars in another.
Overall, smaller more compact cars will have better fuel efficiency than larger heavier SUV's. While the average mileage of a compact hybrid is close to 40MPG, average SUV MPG is closer to 20.
no actually suv's are easier to flip than cars and trucks
