Why do Americans Love their Pickup Trucks so much?

The bond between a truck and its owner is strong in America!  Back in 2018, Chevrolet worked with Harris Poll to survey over 1,000 U.S. pickup truck owners about their love for their trucks.  Even though it was two years ago, our team at DuraFlap believes many of these sentiments continue to ring true today:

  1. What’s your truck’s name? Over 27% of pickup truck owners express their love for their pickup trucks by giving them names.  The most popular name was “Betsy,” closely followed by “Big Red.”
  2. How helpful is your pickup? Nearly 90% of pickup truck owners use their rigs to help other people.  33% have towed someone else’s car for them and an equal amount of people used their trucks to help out a school, community, or charitable cause.
  3. Is your pickup pictured in your family portrait? According to 57% of pickup truck owners, their pickups are considered part of their families.  45% will be passing on their pickup trucks to their kids or another loved one; 38% admitted to loving their trucks more than anything else they own, and a whopping 60% said they simply “can’t live without” their trucks.
  4. What milestones have happened with your pickup truck? Over a fourth of owners said they learned how to drive in a pickup truck; 9% experienced their first kiss in a truck, and 10% drove a pickup truck to bring a newborn home from the hospital.
  5. What’s your pickup truck’s coolness factor? Nearly 40% of people felt driving a truck made them more attractive and likely resulted in making them more popular.
