It is called a truck because that is how I say it and I am always right.

The name "pick up" was gotten from its use as a vehicle to haul and transport heavy loads. The first popular pickup truck was the Ford Model T Runabout. This pickup was a factory product by Henry Ford back in 1925. As the pickup truck evolved, It was referred to as a half-ton truck.

I am right and it is called a truck because you never see it say ford pickup trucks for sale just ford trucks

By that argument, Semi-trucks (which are actually called trucks) should be called trucks too. (which they are) That would be very confusing.

It was originally called a truck because when whoever built the first car wanted to name it he named it a truck

According to Wikipedia, The term pickup is of unknown origin. It was used by Studebaker in 1913 and by the 1930s, "pick-up" (hyphenated) had become the standard term
