Re: MILEAGE

Okay, I know I shouldn't feed the trolls, but I couldn't resist.
I decided to take up a little survey. I consulted edmunds.com and compared all GM cars/trucks with all Toyota cars/trucks. I then listed each one out, along with the mileage reported to Edmunds.
A few rules I followed:
1. Since no one wants an underpowered car, I picked the larger engine when a choice was given.
2. Since I can't imagine anyone wanting to drive a stickshift, I picked an auto transmission when possible.
3. In a few cases - the GMC and Chevy work trucks - the mileage is not listed. I labeled them as zero, but real-world mileage depends on the engine used. Gas 2500/3500 trucks get around 12/18 MPG while diesel models get 16/20, from what I understand.

Toyota (Lexus/Scion) makes 35 models of cars/trucks/vans.
Seven models - 20% - are trucks or vans. 22 models - 62% - are midsize or larger. Seven models - 20% - are considered compact or smaller.
GM (Buick/Chevy/GMC/Pontiac/Saturn) makes 54 models of cars/trucks/vans.
18 models - 33% are trucks or vans. (Note that six models are work trucks or full-size vans, which don't exist in Toyota's lineup.) 21 models - 38% - are midsize or larger. 10 models - 18% - are considered compact or smaller.

Um, I think you need to check your numbers, mr/ms troll.
I'd say both companies are producing about the same amount of cars/trucks in similar categories.
