He makes good points, but entirely missed THE point. The target demographic isn't people needing the most capable towing truck they can afford, it's commuters that like truck-like vehicles. It might also be people that don't like working on trucks, because they are the least reliable, most expensive vehicles to maintain. Finally, it probably will be a good work truck for some contractors. Kinda nice not having tools exposed to prying eyes.
