Primary market sales of full-size pickups, the United States, in the year it sold more than 2 million of these machines. And in this market there is a fierce competition between the leaders of the sector: Ford, General Motors and Fiat owned Chrysler brand Ram. The average price per vehicle — $ 50,000.

Or perhaps buyers will be those who wish to acquire a truck, but do not want to mess with gasoline or diesel engine to his car just to assert his high status?", — does not hide the confusion Michelle Krebs, senior analyst of the consulting firm Autotrader from Detroit.
