Correct, we call big rigs trucks. We refer to pickups as... well... pickups. The conversation going on in this thread is the exact reason why we refer to them as pickups. If you key up over the radio that some dumb*** in a truck is cutting people off, other drivers are going to be looking for the village idiot in a semi truck, not a pickup truck.

Same thing as when you're at the terminal and you're talking about your personal vehicle with another driver. A lot truck drivers are tired when they arrive at the terminal, so we have a tendency to get confused as to what exactly somebody is referring too when they are using the word "truck" interchangeably.

Weigh stations go by the same rule of thumb as well. Reason being is because the signs say "ALL TRUCKS STOP AT SCALES WHEN OPEN", and there's always that one idiot in a pickup that goes into the scale thinking it meant them too. That's why you see signs posted close to almost every scale saying "NO AUTOS OR PICKUPS THROUGH WEIGH STATION" near the signs telling semi trucks to pull into the scales.

For somebody who doesn't drive a semi truck, that whole issue typically isn't a problem. For us, it can be an annoyance at times so that's why we refer to it the way we do.

A gc, a cherokee, both SUV. As is the entire jeep line. Some fall into the hybrid or crossover SUV area.

If you want to be real picky, in the US there is no standard definition of what an SUV is. Depending on the state they may be collectively called 'off-highway vehicles", some states just categorize them the same as light trucks (pickups for the overseas op).

You can call yours a brenda if you want to but there are only so many actual vehicle categories before you start making up new ones.

Wranglers are registered as station wagons in Arizona.

I have seen a s10 blazer classified as a "station wagon" even tho its clearly a SUV .


As for the word truck ive experienced where people call their Semi "trucks" as well as using it for their pickup truck . I think "truck" could used to describe as vehicle of bulk that can do some heavy work with imo .

Okay, that explains a lot.

In Belgium a truck is in fact a big rig, like the volvo's, scania's, renaults and other brands. From time to time we see a rare Peterbilt or Kenworth, but mostly these are used for publicity or shows.

But on the Dutch Jeepforum, we have this saying: "Your SUV is not a Jeep, my Jeep is not a SUV"...

Volvos are nice trucks, but they are built cheap as ****. 120,000 miles and the interior of this one started falling apart. It lived a short life thanks to the team that took over after me.




Russians and Ukrainians have a hard on for these trucks for some odd reason. I don't know why but they do.

But to understand the whole story, you have to read all my posts...

In fact, I love Trucks and I love America.

That's why I own two jeeps.
And I love Belgium Ale

said Sundevil, but I have to say that my new WH is built cheap too. The interior is chinese plastic, and compared to the WJ, it's a big leap backwards.

When I turn up the volume of the music, the bass makes the whole interior vibrate. And the dash is so plastic, that one presumes to drive in a cheap DACIA. What the hell was chrysler thinking ???

On this board I have seen people call the Jeep a car...
God kills a kitten every time someone calls a Jeep a car.
