i'm pretty sure you're hearing it wrong, but i have a few other things to address here.well yeah, thats the slogan, but "chevy ,god and texas" are the lyrics in the theme music. my mistake. or am i hearing it wrong?
let me just say this to you, sir. you are the type of person that makes all Texans look like ridiculous hicks! people from across the country already think that Texans are all a bunch of freaking goat ranchers or something, and that we all wear 10 gallon hats and stupid cowboy boots. i myself have owned a few trucks, and yeah, 3 out of 4 of them were domestics. the fact is a truck is a truck. a frame, a body, and an engine. nothing special, they just have to work hard. consider this.... Toyota and Nissan, who is also selling a full size, have sat back and watched what the big 3 have done for years, checking out their game, and observing the very profitable market of full size trucks from afar. Toyota had even tried once before, with the failed T-100. the difference is they have a gameplan now. they have studied American trucks, and they know what the U.S. market wants. Nissan's new Titan looks like a real domestic fighter, and the Tundra is a very nice truck as well. not everyone needs a 1-ton dually pickup with 4WD. some people need something to tow that weekend toy, or haul mulch and plants around with, and these trucks will do very well for that. however, they will also do somewhat heavy duty work as well. the Nissan, more than the Tundra, but they are both well designed, well built trucks, and they deserve respect. they will certaily get consideration by some of the not-so-country people who need pickups. they're good vehicles. don't be so closed minded and realize that the foreign companies who brought us better cars are also very capable of bringing us better trucks, too. they've done their homework...mr smith who wrote the article drives an s-10 and is not a "car guy" as would be required of automotive journalists. he has no idea what the FULLSIZE market is about in texas. i do, i've lived it and breathed it since i was 5 years old when i first got to steer a ford f series in the driveway. the texas fullsize truck owner is unlike that of the east coast that he mentions. they could give a fk about DOHC in fact thats probably a negative thing being that its probably more expensive to fix. they want their trucks ruggid, american and able to roll over civics. in texas the fullsize truck had mutiple uses, work, family, play.. and ford/dodge/chevy/gmc trucks hold a place of honor here in texas that cant be taken away easily with pretty chrome and and carlike interior that sissy boys use for antiquing and to get attention at starbucks.
