There's an interesting point made in the discussion section of that page about the increased use of drones. I can understand the appeal of light & fast vehicles as some enemy forces make more use of drones for spotting and even anti-vehicle attacks.
Many drones are still rather noisy but not noisy enough to be heard inside a typical armoured vehicle. Arguably people in an open vehicle would have a better chance of detecting a drone and thus avoiding or destroying it.

The light vehicle would likely have enough spare room to accommodate some sort of anti-drone tech or comms jamming system. Even if you had it installed in say one in every three vehicles.
Just bouncing some thoughts around. I'm certainly not saying the gunned-up pickup is the ultimate answer, but I can see the appeal... plus they're plenty cheap not just in purchase cost but also in regards to sourcing spare parts.
