I looked at all the similar trucks (Dakota, Ranger, Colorado, Toyota, Honda). I drove them all. There is no doubt that this is the best truck of the group. It performs with speed far better than any thing else. Its look and feel is much nicer than all the rest. It is comfortable and fun to drive. From someone who has always owned SUVs (Grand Cherokee, Explorer, Murano, Suburban, and Durango), this rates right up there with any of them in terms of driving comfort. Nissan has their act together.
The factory installed bed liner and tie- down system is fantastic. This truck, also, has exceptional pick up and speed.
The main thing I would like to see is a choice of factory bed covers beyond the simple cheesy snap cover offered by Nissan.
