Toyota isn't that much better, Prius or no Prius, especially since they pander to American tastes like the whoring corporation that they are.
I know GM was talking about suspending their RWD large displacement automobiles due to the CAFE standards, however when comparing to the majority of the other auto makers, they've atleast demonstrated that they are capable of being environmentally resposible.
I agree with you completely on Toyota, there has been this misconception about the American automakers designing nothing but gas guzzling trucks and large SUV's, whereas Toyota has more SUV's in their line up than Chevrolet, in which two are large trucks (Sequoia and Landcrusier) with horrendous fuel consumption.
Toyota's saving grace is the Prius, in which they religously flaunt the fact that it gets more miles per gallon than any other car on the market.
Chrysler and Ford still need to continue working on their fuel consumption standards....I'll atleast give Ford benefit of the doubt, considering they do have 1 hybrid in their line-up, however there is still improvement to be made.
