Maybe not traditionally, but that’s changing as families reduce their car count. In order to find out just how livable they are, we grabbed one and took it on a round trip from Vancouver, BC to Calgary, Alberta – Canadian home of the pickup truck – and back. To see how efficient a pickup can be, we took one of the diesel variety: the 2015 Ram 1500 Bighorn, complete with optional rear air suspension. Should be epic.
