It started as a simple lunch conversation with friends.
"He has the sexiest truck. He really does." She was talking about a young man she knows. It seemed like such a simple, straightforward statement.
"I have never really thought about sexy and truck going together." I thought my friends would agree with my assessment without hesitation.
"What? Are you kidding? A man with a truck is about the sexiest thing around? Don't you know that song Somethin Bout a Truck? You aren't a country girl are you?" My friends stared at me as if something were seriously wrong with me.
I was surprised at the reaction. I was raised in the country. I am told that being raised on the river here in the low-country may not translate to the same country as the upstate folks talk about. Yes, my friends are from the upstate. (For readers not from this area, the upstate refers to the northernmost part of South Carolina and the Low-Country is the coastal area.)
That afternoon I searched the internet for proof that "truck" was somehow sexy. I found several songs by country singers about trucks and those men are indeed sexy. I suppose seeing them in their natural environment and driving a truck might qualify as sexy. I was still not sure I totally got it.
Later that evening at dinner we scrutinized the parking lot. We looked at several trucks and my friends explained which ones were deemed as sexy. One smaller beat up truck did not make the cut. I pointed to one of the more modern "lifted" trucks. It had a big lift kit and was raised several feet in the air with huge tires. My friends laughed. I then learned that trucks with too much lift and flashy tires indicated that the owner may be trying to make up for something, let's say, lacking in his life. An F 350 with crew cab and a couple of nice decals seem to be the sexiest in the parking lot.v
So, I decided to check this out for myself and did a Google search for "sexy trucks." Much to my surprise I found an article listing the "Top 10 Sexy Trucks." I was shocked to find this description for the number one sexiest truck.
There is just something about the Ram 1500 R/T that gets my blood going. This pickup is the sexiest truck of the year because it looks good from any angle and there is not one problem I can see with the look of this vehicle. Every part of the body is color matched providing a clean and sleek look. The hood has a mean bulge with air inlets that let you know this truck is all business. The rims are huge 22-inch forged and polished wheels which just add to the overall sexiness of the Ram 1500 R/T. The truck comes with a 5.7 liter V-8 HEMI engine that cranks out 390 horsepower and 407 lb-ft. of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ram 1500 R/T also rocks 4.10 gears which help it to accelerate from 0-60 MPG in 6.1 seconds making it one of the fastest stock production trucks. That is sexy!
I don't believe the description can compete with the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon or hot romance novels, but you know, I am beginning to think my friends just might be right. I may have to check out those big trucks rolling down the road and their drivers.
I had one more thought. I wondered if guys consider a woman driving a big truck as sexy? Maybe, just maybe, my next car should be a truck.
