Pros: The third door
Cons: The underpowered 4 cyl engine
Advice: Get the V6 and extended cab versionThis truck is very comfortable. Took it to Florida this year and surprisingly it was not bad. The 4 cyl engine is starved for power and if I had it to do over again I would opt for the V6 version. Gas milage on the 4 cyl is not great. I think I saw 25 mpg max the entire trip. I have the extended cab version which is great since the seats can be slid further back than the stand cab will allow.
