Here on DelMarVa, full sized trucks are very popular. A lot of 4X4's as well, even though it doesn't snow much. But this part of MD/with lower DE and eastern shore of VA is pretty much all farm land with loads of marshes, grass flats, bays and rivers so fishing and hunting are quite popular so what's better then a full sized truck for hauling gear and towing ones boat?

Pick-up-trucks are definitely prevalent in Mississippi. Go out into the country or to the small towns (where 55% of the state's population lives) and that's basically all you see.

Lot's of trucks in the state's cities and suburbs and big towns as well.

I have lived in a small town, (Winona, briefly for about three months) and in the largest city (Jackson, basically all of my life), and basically one in ever 2 cars is a pick-up.

You know 4 wheel drive is not just for snow? I have used 4 wheel drive to get down muddy roads and up slippery boat ramps far more than driving in snow.

You know the North Country has five seasons, and one of them is mud season- after the snow melts. With plenty of gravel and dirt roads, 4X4 trucks and Subaru's are common themes.

Oh I know. I have driven 4x's my whole life and I'm pushing 50. Great for driving on the beaches here in the Mid-Atlantic, as well as going out in a muddy corn field to set up stands, bait or retrieve ones deer. And as you mentioned, great for boat ramps. Those are reason's they are so popular here!

I think that it's interesting that the often presumed narrative is that the South is full of trucks, but the #1 seller along the SE coast from VA to FL is either a Toyota or Honda car.

No, it's probably not THE most popular vehicle in California but it's definitely up there as the most popular state for Prius owners (highest % of Prius owners.)

I'm also surprised how few trucks are in the SE, namely Georgia and Florida.. I saw far more pickups on the road in California than the southeast.
