awesome blend of truck and SUV. in my opinion the best styling of any SUV out there. interior is quiet, tightly built, doors shut with a solid thump. engine is very good, though a little light on low end torque, but the HP proves it's mettle around 35-50MPH. the perfect amount of exhaust note to sound tough, but not so much that it's annoying to passengers. at cruising speed it's quiet as a BMW. gas mileage is what you expect. ranks a 9 on the fun factor, only because the Wrangler (10) is parked next to it. all in all, it's an awesome vehicle. if you're thinking of buying one, go for it. I can't imagine it getting better than the '05/'06 model.
cargo area, side step bumper, roof rack and cargo box. simple, clean but very attractive interior. exhaust note - perfect growl on acceleration, silent at idle and cruising speed. BIG. the extra few inches makes a huge difference inside, and the extended wheelbase = a better ride
more torque. HP is a fun advertising statistic, but torque rules. should equip all models with the fold flat front seat.
