Honda May Bring Diesel to U.S.

It's a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not a train!

Honda Diesel in the U.S.

Oh, for the love of Pete, PLEASE do this Honda. I beg you.

Waits patiently for the Honda Diesel

what are you basing that off of? if your basing the chevy thing by what the wheels look like I think your wrong. though they do look like chevy wheels they are more recent ford wheels on what appears to be a heritage model f150(based off the updated wheels and older body style and the curviture of the rear driverside suicide door) its not ugly enough, but the interior does look cheap enough

the funny part is that you can not tell what kind of truck it is.
I am going with f150 because thats what the site said where i stol ehte picture from.
ALTHOUGH i also thought it was a silverado to start with, based on the rear side window.

Well, as you can see the evidence below, it's definitely a Chevy Silverado.

EDIT: Not the case...see below.

Point of fact, is that F-2 is right, vehicle size does not matter.

Silverado: Note the wheel

F-150: Dash not similar, nor the seat (and sorry, no side view was available to compare)

RH77

EDIT: Correction: I think it's a previous-gen F-150, but the wheel throws things off. GM dashes aren't as swoopy, and the 2-tone paint is signature F-150.

You have your GM Generations messed up. I am baseing it off the rear window also. The Silverado you showed is the current model, the one that I think is being crashed is of the earlier generation.

Yes, it is a 99 f150. Silverados do not have the 2 dimples on the rear window
