Definition of light truck[edit]

This article needs an official definition of the light truck class, either as a link or in the article if it is small. I can't find the definition or I would add it myself. -SCEhardt 19:47, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

There is a definition now, but it's only correct in a small part of the world. Here, at least, a light truck is one that weighs no more than 3500 kg (and requires a level B license). I'm not sure there is any point in listing all the different definitions of light trucks, but it's probably better to mention a range of definitions than to only mention one (which to me sounds like a particularly light one). But since I only have two data points, I'll leave the article alone for now. //Carl T 16:12, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Original research on aerodynamics and fuel efficiency[edit]

This statement needs to be qualified with references to be on the main page. I have moved it here.

However, inefficient aerodynamics may be a barrier in the attempt to increase economy standards of light trucks to the level of most passenger cars, due to a larger, taller frontal area and awkward profile.
