Sorry for the derail Tim. I loves me a good debate and I haven't had one in awhile.

I think you see them frequently, particularly in the northern US. When I was stationed at Fort Drum the local county sheriff had a half-ton truck or two, and the local law enforcement up here uses them as well. With the commonality of AWD crossovers that get great fuel economy, like the Explorer PI, I'm not sure how long this will continue for. I do know that my Fusion won't outrun an EB F150!
