Traffic, traffic and more traffic, at least here in Southern Ontario. It's stop and go everywhere, almost all day long, especially close to cities. Who wants to do all that shifting, though more importantly the stopping and starting? It's one thing in a car, but the heavier clutches of these trucks? Shifting without the clutch is beyond most peoples' grasp, even a lot of the new truckers we have in our area. I'd think more pickup trucks (even HDs) are sold in urban areas than the countryside, so that would probably dictate a trend for a manufacturer. This demand has almost certainly driven the development of much better autos, that work great and are extremely reliable. I have enough shifting in my big dump truck all day, where I'd rather a stick, even without using the clutch, so the last thing I want is to be shifting a pickup on the way home, or on the way to jobsites in the heart of the city, with traffic lights every 100yds or less.
