Ford built the F150 Lightning to take on the Chevrolet 454 SS, power figures: Ford: 260 horsepower
Chevrolet: 255 Horsepower
I know I'll probably catch crap for this one, but in the U.S., pick-up trucks are a big part of our car culture, in fact, for the past few years, pick-ups have outsold everything else.

The Ford gets much better gas mileage and is cubic inches smaller.
