What is your reaction to this?

If you find yourself without a date this Valentine’s Day, maybe it’s not you. Maybe it's your car.

The survey of 2,000 men and women asked what type, brand and color of vehicle are driven by the most fetching members of the opposite sex.

Women ranked these styles as cars that attractive men drive:

• Pickup trucks: 32%
• Sports cars: 27%
• SUVs: 16%
• Sedans: 11%
• Hybrid or electric: 9%
• UPS truck: 4%
• Minivans: 2%
• Mail truck: 1%

"Among the general public, a black pickup truck is a reflection of a masculine owner. A woman walks up to a black pickup truck and says to herself, 'Here's a guy who can help me move, bring me large gifts from Crate & Barrel and do repairs around my condo.'"

"It makes sense,” says Caldwell. “It brings forth the image of the rugged tough guy.” But Caldwell also drops a hint about her own personal preferences. “Some women like a lot more cosmopolitan guy, driving a Range Rover or Tesla Model S."


Auto-related turn-offs were:

• Cigarette butts in the ashtray. (Women: 23%. Men: 23%.)
• Trash on the seats. (Women: 22%. Men: 23%.)
• Playing bad loud music. (Women: 21%. Men: 16%.)
• Bumper stickers for political candidates. (Women: 9%. Men: 13 %.)
• Car dents. (Women: 6%. Men: 11%.)
• Loud exhaust. (Women: 14%. Men: 9%.)
• Pine tree air freshener. (Women: 5%. Men: 5%.)

Caldwell believes most folks are also put off by Hawaiian leis dangling from rear-view mirrors and backseats inhabited by stuffed animals.


Survey methodology
Insure.com surveyed 2,000 licensed drivers age 18 and over, split evenly between men and women and divided across age groups and regions. The online-panel survey was fielded in December 2013.

As a man with a black pickup, I completely endorse this study, and its subsequent results But I also have a "seafoam green" Taurus, does that cancel the truck out?

Seafoam green, aqua, turquoise--my favorites! Black pickups are for farmers, where I live.
