In the past few days, I have watched a web drama in which a car fascinated me at a glance. The web drama I watched, Soul Ferry 2, appeared in the fourth episode. I searched the Ford Raptor F150 20146.2L US version. Since I like to pay attention to cars, I have only seen a pickup truck in my life. It’s Jeep’s little Cherokee.
Ever since, I really don’t understand why there are pickup truck restrictions in the country, and it’s difficult to charge fees.
American people love pickup trucks the most, and they rank first in sales. Each will have equipment, such as their favorite Jeep Grand Cherokee, Toyota Tundra, Ford Raptor, Dodge Grand Ram, these big, beautiful and practical cars and so on. However, in the domestic market, there is only the rhythm of being suppressed.
You will see a lot of people in American movies driving pickup trucks to travel or drive in any area. Their performance in all complex terrains is breathtaking, such excellent performance and space. Why is the domestic market only limited shares?
First, North America and Australia are both large rural areas. We are used to living in buildings. You don’t know how much messy work a house has to do. Mowing the lawns in the front and back yards, planting flowers and other things, where the house is broken, and repairing things. You just open their garage, there are a bunch of various tools. Foreign labor costs are high, and the freight is expensive, so you have to repair it yourself and transport it yourself, so it is really convenient to have a pickup truck to transport materials and so on. In contrast, we have something to do, hire someone to repair, find a transportation company, but it is so convenient and cheap, there is really no need to get a pickup. Second, the main force for buying pickups abroad is still blue-collar workers, such as construction workers or factory employees. However, blue-collar workers earn no less than white-collar workers, and generally more. Pickup trucks are really very practical for them, so it is a natural choice. In contrast, our wages to manual workers are too low, so they can’t afford pickup trucks. Wuling may be a more sensible choice. The last thing I can think of is farmers. Pickup trucks are more convenient for them to pull goods or tools. But for the same reason, our farmers’ income is too low, and they can only choose a cheap alternative, Sanbengzi.
