Wish I still had this truck, mine was a rare V6 manual 2wd Kingcab. I haven't seen another one, usually all the options or none. This car had great bucket seats with a small standard steering wheel and strong gearbox. There was no doubt that you were in gear, smooth clutching and power steering. I liked it a lot. I wish they still made trucks this size, it wasn't trying to be a big truck, just right. Highway cruising was nice with its longer body and plenty of power.
My friends all loved the truck, it was so boxy, the V6 had pull that non-car people aren't familiar with, and I could hang the tail out whenever I wanted to. Many a person learned to drive manual in this beast.
By far the best piece on this truck is the body; the door makes a satisfying "thump" when you close it. The interior is basic, but was robust; nothing budged or wiggled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
