English term or phrase:big mack truck
In an automobile market research context. "Intellectual women reject idea of owning and driving a big mack truck."
Explanation: Mack is a company long known for producing large sturdy commercial trucks.
When I was a kid I remember they had a slogan "Built like a Mack Truck". The conclusion of this survey is that intellecutal women prefer a small, streamlined vehicle rather than one that is reminiscent of a Mack truck.
Thank you for a little background and the insight into the context in addition to factual information. It didn't occur to me that mack was a brand name. It oculd have been easier for me if they had spelled it as Mack (with upper case "M") instead of mack. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
