The XE is a sleeper. Sure the 154 horsepower four cyl. isn't for the macho types. It works hard to push a 3,500 lb truck, but this is the engine that makes the Altima great, just tuned for truck duty! Give me the 23 mpg any day over the (admittedly GREAT 4 liter 6's 16-18. Workmanship is excellent, handling is great, towing capacity of 3,500 lb for a 4 banger is amazing! Ride is a little busy on rough road, but cornering and braking is super. And gas mileage for a truck that I use to haul around tools fo work is fantastic.
Stereo was a nice surprise, seats are comfy, bed is nice for a 4 cyl. truck, workmanship is very nice, mileage. Low tire pressure monitor and big truck feel for $18K!!!!
Choppy ride, would like track system available option for XE. Also would like more color options for XE.
