This is my first truck, first "straight-from-the-factory" purchase, and first Nissan.
8k miles & 8 months later, I'm very happy overall with this vehicle.
I naturally looked towards the Tacoma first since my buddy had one, but the price was steep.
I then test drove the PRO-4X and I was highly impressed with the ride quality and handling both on and off road.
The mpg does hurt if you drive in a slow speed town, but not too bad for highway travel.
I've done everything with this truck except towing and mudding, and it runs beautifully.
I love the built in Bluetooth and Aux input feature.
The interior is built to handle abuse; no tears, scratches, or sheers with my 2 dogs in the back.
The fold-down seatbacks and the fold-up seats allow me to hold all my tools, towing, and repair equip with ease.
The speaker system is awesome!
Even though I can have a ton of fun off-road, it's cool that my truck becomes the party truck while in the city with the speakers and subwoofer.
4WD and the VDC disable switch makes offroading a blast.
The factory bedliner and rails are excellent and hold up to abuse quite well.
4.0L V6 is pretty awesome, lots of torque and power.
I also love the wheels and the spacy glove compartment.
Built in sensor or rearview camera would be good for tight parking quarters and parallel parking.
Rear seating is a bit tight, can only fit 2 adults comfortably and there's not much legroom.
Offer a color-matched camper top as an option when building/purchasing this vehicle.
Armrests for the front seats would be nice for long drives.
If the engineers could find a way to bump up the mixed MPG by 2, that would be awesome... the new Ford V-6 has raised the bar and I think Nissan needs to meet or beat that.
Bring the V6 diesel to the states!
