Taking a cue from Edsel, the Rimac has not just one, but TWO horse collar grille openings!

I don't need a big truck.  Hell, I probably don't need a truck at all.  I keep drooling when I see the new Honda Ridgelines... the ones that look like a normal truck, not the first generation abomination.  Any of youse have one?  Do you like it?

A company I used to work for used them as work trucks. Agreed the first ones just sucked I was not a fan.  The new one was admittedly pretty slick. Again not really a truck but for the causal user it was a perfectly cromulent vehicle. The styling was a bit bland for my tastes though.

The writer has not heard of the EV F150? They came first. By a couple of months.

Uh, no.  The Ford Lightning was not officially in production.  Ford was still demonstrating the pre-production versions.
