Auto companies are betting on a surge in pickup sales now that home building is on the rise. Chrysler said Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, it is adding 1,000 workers to its Ram pickup factory because it sees higher demand for the redesigned truck. Ford and General Motors also say truck sales are climbing fast after several years of small but steady growth. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman, File)
