Good for them, more choices=mo' better. The cost over a conventional ½-ton should/could be paid back through fuel cost savings. There a lot of PU trucks that don't ever do 100 mile days except maybe for pleasure on a weekend, so there may be a lot of business buyers that just make short runs with a few hundred pounds of cargo. Totally not for me, but I don't have a dime in it so no big deal.
