  3. QUESTION:
    Why do full size trucks get the same gas mileage as small trucks?
    I used to have a 1991 GMC Sonoma, and just bought a used 2000 Chevy Silverado and I get the exact same gas mileage. About 14mpg city around 20 highway. The Sonoma has the 4.3 V6, and the Silverado has the 4.8 V8. What is the point of having small trucks if the big ones get the same gas mileage?

    • ANSWER:
      Back in the day vehicles weren’t as fuel-efficient as newer vehicles. If you had a ’91 Silverado with a 4.8 V8 engine it would probably be a gas-guzzler. If you use a newer model small truck such as a Ford Ranger, you’d notice it is more fuel efficient than the older Rangers.

  5. QUESTION:
    What year was it that truck companies stopped building small trucks?
    I’m looking to buy a 2WD 4cl truck to basically move drywall and building supplies when I work on properties. There is NOTHING out there that is in the ‘small truck’ range
    I’m in Toronto and there are only two (new models) that have good mileage that are in the ‘smaller’ end of the truck spectrum. Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. I’d look for used ones – but I don’t know the years that they changed to ‘mid size’

    • ANSWER:
      Try these two out. Ford Ranger and Mazda B-series. They are both built in the same factory so there’s not much difference between them. Just trim mostly. Their 2.3 litre 4 cylinder engine is virtually bulletproof and very thrifty for a truck. Sorry, but they are the smallest truck of their type on the market today. If you decide on one of them, do yourself a big favour and get the extended cab for a few dollars more. You will thank yourself and me for it later.
