An unintended feature of the Ford Lobo pickup truck.
Sales of Ford’s Lobo pickups and similar trucks are falling in Mexico because buyers don’t want to be mistaken for gangsters.
The Ford Lobo is a popular vehicle for drug cartel hitmen. Says Gabriel Lopez, the president of Ford in Mexico:
"It’s a vehicle that is in high demand for committing crimes… There’s plenty of space in the pick-up’s cabin for more weapons."
