    True, and I might add that the Dart was barely a C size - it was on the border of C and D.

    These car-pickups popular in South America are so ugly. I remember seeing them in Italy too.

    They should use the Renegade and make a pickup body from that or something.

    The new Strada is based on an architecture (MP1) that ranges from large A to small C-segment applications for low-cost markets. It is not correct to say it's a city-car platform: you may as well say a Pacifica is built on a compact car platform.

    There also seems to be some confusion here with the larger Toro, which uses the Small-Wide family: any "Renegade-with-a-bed" would be a rework of Toro, not Strada. (the two do look very similar, but they are different sizes)

    In Europe the Strada was imported in the past.
    Many look at them also today and willing to have it back into the market.
    For example is used by small farmers or people that have some farming activities for personal use. These people want something with low enough price, but also that have low insurance, taxation, maintenance costs ...
    Their price in used market is relatively high if compared to used cars prices.

    Fiat Strada / Ram 700 is 4.48 m (176") long and has a wheelbase of 2737 mm (107.8"), a Fiat Toro / Ram 1000 has a length of 4.91 m (193.3") and a wheelbase of 2990 mm (117.7").

    As for length, so one could have an idea, if one takes the Jeep Comanche (1986-1992) as example, the short bed version was 179.2" while the long bed version was 194".
    Fiat Strada / Ram 700 is about 3 inches shorter than the short bed Comanche while the Fiat Toro is less than 1 inch sgorter than a long bed Comanche.

    Like this CONCEPT but I'd love a production version with EXT CAB and 6' bed...give the 0.5ft (6") to the cabin.

    RAM 700would make for a perfect daily driver when you make those quick stops by the big box stores on the way home from work...
