Relatively small blind spots for a pickup with good visibility. Backup camera std on most models.
Rugged styling yet still smart enough to use as a Daily driver to work. Built in bedliner was a plus thought cleats a little flimsy.
Plenty of go out of the V6.
Similar to driving a body on frame SUV. Does not pitch and roll like a full size.
Good reputation for reliability - most known issues are minor and the 2011 is far enough into the 2nd Gen to have most resolved.
