$92k for a pickup truck?! Wow. I realize that's Canadian, and is a truck with tons of bells and whistles, including the extremely expensive diesel option, but...Wow.

My 36' Class A Motorhome with full body paint and numerous other options (see signature), bought brand new in 2012, did not cost that much!

If pickups are that expensive and will only get worse.....Welllll, makes me that much happier that we'll most likely never need to own one again.

What a couple guys alluded to, but not specifically, is aside from inflation, you’re buying twice the vehicle now compared to say, the 80s.
Power capability, technology, comfort, features etc etc.
too many “want it all, now” people. Older folks too.
Want to bitsch about the price of your new LTZ duramax dually crew cab?
Compare it to a stripped down gasser new work truck for starters and then add how much more capable, powerful and comfortable that is even compared to the top of the line 80s rig and then do the math instead of thinking luxuries should be free.
Helll, we already get huge discounts on luxuries compared to previous years and it’s all relative.
