Kind of weak comparing a regular cab ranger vs a crew cab.

Good one.. They don't live in the city, they haven't had to park larger cars.... Then again, door dings, probably sell more cars? While newer cars, the metal is thinner and there is more plastic.. Plastic everything... Bumpers are foam, with a piece of plastic, much like a Wal-Mart $10 swimming pool.

Europe (Czech Republic): Minimal width of line without any signs: 2.5m (even in curves). Some older roads do not even have width signs and the width is about 2m in each direction. It is up to you so slow down from 90/100kph to an appropriate speed (and get 2 wheels out of the road) if you are passing some big vehicle and find a spot to do it safely (not in curves, not under trees). There are some crashes due to this.

Stop the bloat! But test to making the cars big enough for tall people. My best cars were light hatchbacks from the 80s. I’m looking at you fx16 and Honda Covid I miss you both.

I feel like Americans just have a horrible system for getting your license. You really don't need to do that much to get one. Some other countries require schooling and lengthy examinations. Plenty of morons that drive over here. People getting impatient etc.

The trend in Europe is to make cars a bit more compact and lighter than their predecessors. There's no need anymore to make cars bigger and heavier to accommodate all safety requirements.

Demand is saying that people apparently want crossovers more than anything else, and realistically I think that's what people in cities tend towards. Would be interesting to see if there are findings otherwise, but that's the data I've come across when looking around. Compact trucks just aren't all that sought after AFAIK.

11:15 Nolan, put that turbo 4 cyl in your grandpa's truck...that's a great ideal. Now, If you're the owner of a $104k Navigator (with a turbo 4 cyl) on its 3rd headgasket, burning oil at 63k miles...bad ideal.

A lot of it is showboating as well. An example that wasn't mentioned is the emblem on basically any domestic truck & SUV. Used to be, the blue oval was a tiny emblem a few inches wide, and now you can read *FORD* on the grille from a mile away. Bolded for emphasis lol

People want 7 seats and the interior space of a Dodge Caravan, they style of a Range Rover, something easy to park like a Honda Fit, the power of a Hellcat, all the latest tech of an Audi A8, and the fuel efficiency of a Prius. All for $25k with full options. Meeting customer demand is a pain in the ass.

I had a 1999 grand marquis for a long time. I could never figure out why the hood was a mile long. If you opened it up there was a solid 10 inches of empty space between the engine and radiator. It could have had a frunk.

Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Tokyo have some of the lowest rates of accidents. Yes, this will definetely be mainly caused by the tighter roads compared to the US and not by, I don't know, the amount of driving practice needed to get a license or even the general attitude and behaviour of people in those countries....

Maybe one reason why amsterdam has less fatal car crashes per residents is that most people use bikes and public transport? I ve been in Amsterdam like 2 days ago and compared to my city (Warsaw) there hardly are any cars. Its all bikes and trams.

what's interesting is f1 cars can apply to this. ever since 2017, the cars have been getting longer as a result of trying to achieve better aerodynamic efficiency and better track width and so on. the problem is that they have gained a little over 200 pounds since the change from 2016 to 2017

Another reason, though it may well be in here as another comment, manufactures work on customer loyalty. If someone buys a Ford Fiesta, the next models get bigger and bigger to encourage customers to get a bigger car. Then they bring in a new smaller car, such as the Ford KA, etc. You see it less now, but this used to be the trend.
