decades vehicle manufacturers focused their attention, including
financial and people resources, under the hood and on the exterior
of the cars and trucks that they built. The interior, for the most
part, was not considered crucially important and, as a result, seats
were not extremely comfortable (except in luxury vehicles), safety
had to be legislated, and – with the choice of taupe or gray – the
inside seemed to be a second thought.
THAT HAS ALL CHANGED. Today, carmakers recognize that, while
performance and exterior design are critical to the consumer, much
of the action is on the interior of the vehicle. INSIDEout Cars &
Trucks is a response to that change.
give the reader the inside story about vehicles available for
purchase today, things to consider about pre-owned vehicles,
aftermarket products for personalizing or updating an existing
vehicle, and content about human factors and interior design, trends
in materials, lighting, heating and air conditioning, seats,
electronics (including integration) that affect the driver/passenger
experience, entertainment in all its forms, navigation, safety
systems, and storage.

the vehicle, as well as the inside story on industry happenings that
