I don't haul gravel and bricks, but I'm always hauling kids to basketball and often picking up something from Sears or Home Depot. Just the right combo of comfortable SUV-like features and truck utility for me. It's not a workhorse, but it's stylish, comfortable, utilitarian, and reliable.
In bed trunk, storage space in cab, great stereo w/subwoofer, stylish exterior.
Interior dash and controls aren't intuitively placed, gas mileage could be better.
