Hi all,

As I type I have a blue 2016 SV 4x4 with the Value Package sitting in my driveway on an "extended test drive". Am seriously considering purchasing it.. best truck you can get for the money these days. Hope I end up buying it and sticking around these parts. If I can get it for the "internet price" on the dealer's site (26,500) I will probably get it.

Also test drove a Tacoma SR5 and TRD Off Road. I actually like how the Frontier drives better. Price is better too. ::laugh::

Not bad, I might be in the market soon and I figured why not just get the best from the line up a pro4x?

I mean it's quite a big difference in the trucks but the price isn't much different. Why not just go with the nicer pro4x?

In hindsight I think I should have gone pro4x when I was in your shoes. But I'm real happy with the one I bought. I don't think I could have found a vehicle that covers all the bases like this one does.

Now I'm seriously considering the Pro-4x over the SV. The SV has the value package so it has the tow hitch and bed extender. I will use the tow hitch... probably won't ever use the bed extender. The Pro-4x (same color, $3K more) doesn't come with those but I can get a tow hitch for like $100 and install it myself.

The tires and the Pro-4x "cool factor" make the biggest immediate difference for me. Those Hankook HTs really aren't such great tires for off road or serious snow. The Hankook AT-Ms are pretty good in the snow which will be our biggest concern since our gravel driveway is almost a mile long and has about 400 constant feet of 20-25% grade straight up.

Can you fit chains on a Pro-4x?

I drive an SV with the Pro4x tire size. I have emergency chains for it and run ATs. Will put Blizzaks on it this year, as the ATs left me hanging on our icier mile long gravel drive. I wish I had gone Pro4x for the suspension, tires, upgrades interior etc.. The cloth seats aren't well built IMO. I run seat covers.

Tow package was not included in 2012 SV. Bought a Curt hitch assembly and self installed for ~$200 including wiring harness. The Frontiers have a tranny cooler on all of the 4.0s. So no additional need there.

bought a pro-4x!

Well, you all convinced me. I called the dealer today and asked if they would let me compare the SV and the pro-4x as they had one at another lot close by. After looking at and test driving the pro-4x that is what we ended up with. So after some lengthy negotiations here is what is sitting in our garage... will post better pics when it is light out.

Your welcome
So what year, mileage, new or used? And most important the end price?
2016, new, 32 miles on the odometer. We didn't qualify for all the rebates to get the internet price (what a racket) so our OTD price was 33,200. Traded in a 2010 Camry with 94k on it to bring that down to 27 even.

Breakdown...

33,525 (msrp - additional floormats option lol)
900 (destination fee)
34,425 Total MSRP

31,200 total after discounts
2000 (approximate taxes, tags, and such.. in bed and don't have the exact numbers in front of me)

Totals 33,200. Not an amazing deal but not horrible either. $1200 or so under invoice after discounts.

I bought my Forged Copper '16 SV 4x4 with the VTP on Valentine's day this year, and -- aside from wishing for better gas mileage -- I really could NOT be happier with it. It's everything I wanted in a truck at a "Reasonable" price (as opposed to Chevy/Toyota and Honda who all started around 34k)...

I wanted the Pro4x, but wanted the color more. Wish I'd gotten the Pro4x for all the little addons like automatic headlights, but I'm getting there.

Bought some Pro4x Rims ($600). Bought a tonneau cover, bought a lot of little things for it, including a new Kenwood Excelon 893s stereo setup.

It's been 7 months and I'm coming up on 11.5k miles, but I'm still very, very happy with my purchase.

Good luck with yours...

Also bought a 2016 Pro-4x CC a month ago after comparing it to an SV with the value package. Ended up getting the Pro-4x because it has a manual transmission and is the color I wanted (Arctic Blue Metallic). Not one regret since the purchase. Waiting on the delivery of my tonneau cover. Went with the Bakflip MX4.



PS - removed the Pro-4x decals after taking this (not so great) picture. I like the cleaner look.
