Modern pickup truck design is absolutely bewildering to me.
I agree, and it's why I had considerable trouble finding a decent truck in recent years. I might have bought a new truck a few years ago but sat in a couple and the position was ridiculous. I settled on a somewhat iffy 2002 Chevy Silverado, when I might have just held my breath and bought a new 2011 Ford or something if it had not felt like something out of The Road Warrior. When the Chevy was past its useful life owing to various things including a rotten frame, I had the same issue once again, and ended up earlier this year with a 2007 midsize GMC Canyon. I don't think I'll ever be buying a new truck unless the trend toward towering war machines changes.
