Not crazy about the looks. Then again I was never a Sport looks fan. Article says only 224HP, holy under powered Bat Man! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> To compete you would need to be closer to 300hp. My third issue would be if there is no locker option, then forget it. For me a baseline 4x4 needs to be 270hp+, preferably closer to 300HP and a stock rear locker package option. Given the options on the market, its silly to puck down 10s of thousands for anything less. If Mits does not compete again, the sales will be left in the cold.
Lloyd, are you missing your Xterra again? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
I don't mind it, but I'm not clear what role it has in the line up... is it the sport replacement? If so, are they going to keep the silly "sport" naming convention, or simply call it the Paj/Monteo/Shogun period? Or is there still the full size flagship model coming as well? the whole sport naming thing has irritated me for years, whether it was the outlander or the Montero. Its a different vehicle, it needs a different name. But I digress, and maybe I'm the only one?
In any event, is this the sport replacement? I don't mind it, but I'd still like a gate/spare on the back. Again, maybe that's just me?
