When did this country go all Yuppie on us?
I was checking my email today and saw a thing for best cars of 2004 so i figured id give it a look...somehow not to my surprise here are some results.
Here's Kiplinger's list of Best in Class 2004 models:
Under $17,000: Hyundai Elantra GT
$17,000 to $23,000: Toyota Camry LE V6
$23,000 to $30,000: Infiniti G35
$30,000 to $40,000: Mercury Marauder
Over $40,000: Lexus LS 430
Sports Car: Chevrolet Corvette
Station Wagon: Volvo XC70
Minivan: Toyota Sienna
Small SUV: Ford Escape XLT
Midsize SUV: Acura MDX
Big SUV: Cadillac SRX (tie)
Nissan Pathfinder Armada (tie)
Small Truck: Chevrolet SSR
Big Truck: GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab
I figured Suv would be a Caddy becuase thats the big trend right now like Vans were for awhile back in the 70s or 80s or whenever that was(before my time) [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] thank god...
What really torqued me off was the SSR getting the small truck one, I mean really you would think the Dakota, Ranger, or S10 would get it. The SSR seems more like a sports car to me, like the El Camino. Then the big truck category. Since when is a half ton a big truck? I dont see how a 1 ton, regular or dually wouldnt of ranked higher then a Xcab 1500. Well Ill stop my rant right here I guess. Here is the link for the rest of you guys if you wanna see it.
