While certain Canadian provinces might decry the low cost of gas these days, it’s likely translated into a rise in pickup truck and SUV sales. Why? Drivers who may have balked at a full-size off-road vehicle a couple of years ago are now considering them because they won’t cause gas-station-related bankruptcy. Featuring a bevy of hi-tech and practical features, this year’s crop of new rides has something for every kind of angler and hunter. For prices and more information on the pickups and SUVs featured here, please contact the respective manufacturers via the websites provided.
