    I still wish International made light duty vehicles. IMO, they were better looking than Fords and GMs in some cases.

    I have always wanted a Chevrolet Version of this vehicle



    Or perhaps GMC. Why on earth GM does not do it, I do not know.

    mchicha--Well, any new vehicle must have a sloping roof so the people in the back seats cannot sit comfortably and one cannot easily add roof racks that would hold anything heavier than a pair of skis. The front of the vehicle would need to be rounded off in every angle therefore limiting the space under the hood. The windows would need to be shorter, vertically, limiting vision as much as possible. And the needs of today's design constraints goes on. The last vehicle that I can remember being close to that Toyota was Subaru's Forester (a lot of glass, easy to load, ...).
    But that is the way of marketing. My wife and I differ in opinion when judging a vehicle. She is more interested in the sloping roof and the design of the back end while I am more utilitarian wanting to maximize cargo space. She wants many bells and whistles and I could settle for a Datsun B210 with an AM radio. The only area of agreement is that we both think that the Dodge minivans are the best on the market (we have had them since 89).
