After a $5K rebate, took mine home for $23,655 before fees and taxes. Mine came with the 2LT trim w/Z71 off road pkg. So far, no mechanical problems, but wish it was available with a 5 or 6 spd. manual tranny. Am not really sure either why the editor(s) panned it so much. Friend of mine bought a Nissan Frontier and if we're comparing interior fit and finish alone, I'd say they are the same.
XM radio, sunroof, 5yr/100K mile warranty, and overall looks.
Offer manual transmission on 3.7L engines. Make the sunroof open wider.
