That is not a bad looking truck. I don't understand why every truck in Europe must have a roll bar (or whatever you call it over there). They were a thing in the USA back in the 1980s but went out of style.

Heated Mirrors are on my 2017 Pro4x.... but I live in Canada..

Just for reference..
Even my 2010 KC Pro-4x 6spd has heated mirrors despite missing out a lot of the premium features of a CC.

Things I love about the current 4.0 power-train.

Nearly immediate low RPM torque, and more than enough of it (only a diesel would improve on it IMO)
5 speed OD doesn't need to hunt for a gear as badly on hills like modern ones do.(see above comment on Torque)
And the big 4.0 V6 Stock Exhaust Note sounds so nice at startup/idle.. A low quiet growl.

And the road handling is better than any of the other mid sized truck that I tested in 2015.
Others were either too soft or chuck wagon firm(Toyota) and didn't handle bumps/turns well

My biggest handling complaint is how they take you 500 ft to make a tight radius turn.

The sound of any V6 is pretty much ricey, just on the nissan 4.0 it only sounds that way after you get past the initial lifter clatter from the first start of the day, lol.
