I picked up my Xterra after driving Explorers for 12 years. This is the best truck I have ever owned. It performs flawlessly whether going in town shopping or to my favorite mtn bike trail in the mtns, it has been perfect. I avg 18-19 in mixed driving. I have never been so happy with an suv. This thing is twice the suv my Explorer was. Better engine better ride all around sound. I'll be driving this one till it falls apart
Styling, engine features. The compliments. It's offroad ability. This thing is a mtn goat. On pavement ride. My explorer always seemed to have some vibe or shake. Like I could never get the tires balanced
Rubberize the interior like the dash and doors. The plastic scrapes too easy. Bring us the diesel motor from EU. Offer a painted bumper pkg. I hate to use armorall type products. A rear glass panel that opens so you don't have to open the whole hatch. Longer front arm rest.
