Recently picked up this, a Ford Ranger limited Black edition.
That's a cool looking truck. I would get one but I don't want to be grouped in with truck-bros
Truck bros? What does that even mean? And how would that remotely fit the description for a mid size truck like the Raptor?

Since we’re talking trucks, here’s the latest pic of mine.

Image
Where I live there are a lot of kids with wealthy parents who buy their kids loaded trucks i.e. raptors, Tacoma's, lifted rangers. They drive around thinking that they are the new Ken Block and lift their trucks ridiculously, to the point where they can't even carry anything in the bed or tow anything. If you own a truck these smoothbrains will come up to you as if you have anything in common. Once they realize you use your truck as a truck and not a spring-loaded set of wheels they think you're a "loser".

They're pretty easy to spot:
1) Flat-Brim cap
2) Drinks Monster Energy
3) Has Monster Energy Sticker
4) Has "Hoonigan" Sticker
5) 12" front lift kit
6) Off-Road Tires while only driving on City/Highway
7) Talks like an exaggerated surfer stereotype
I fit 2, 3, and 4, but I’m against stickers on my truck so I wouldn’t ever put them on. :lol:

Got talked into getting a 3-row a couple yrs back by my soon-to-be ex-wife. Not too many body on frame w/3rd row. Still wish I had bought a Taco like I wanted, but I wouldn't be able to stash my fishing poles against the headliner like I do with the Pathfinder Image

I love that Nissan and Toyota make midsize body on frame SUVs. I think they may be the only ones now. Even the Explorer is unibody these days.
Nissan flipflops on that for some reason. The R50 was unibody, the R51 (like mine) went back to proper frame, and now the R52 (2013 and up) is back on unibody. And now that the Xtrerra is no more, they have nothing to offer for the offroad crowd in a SUV

Oh yeah that’s true. I forgot about the unibody version. I’ve driven the later unibody version a few years ago and somehow forgot about it I guess. That just leaves the 4Runner as the only one then.
I rented a 2018 Pathfinder recently. It was softer than the Honda Odyssey I used to drive. Unfortunate what they did to them.

That is the top version of the XC90. It combines a Turbo charged + Supercharged 4 cylinder with an electric hybrid drivetrain. What could go wrong? :grin:

I thought the XC60 was offered with a dually-force-fed inline-4 non-hybrid drivetrain. Maybe that was last year's model.

I attended the XC60 launch at Lovering Volvo in NH, but I was probably too busy eating their food and drinking their champagne to pay much attention to the cars. :grin: Post-boxy Volvos aren't my cup of tea.

Got this one in early 2018. Dream come true for me, although when I hang out with the local Porsche guys, I get envious over the air-cooled and GTx 911s. I probably should've gotten a stick, but as a DD, the PDK is incredible. Last of the NA 911s, and you can't beat that flat 6 sound, although it does take a bit of work to wring out all of its power. Looking to do a couple of upgrades in 2019.

Congratulations, beautiful car.

I don't know what the traffic is like in your neck of the woods, but I doubt I'd commute in a car with a manual transmission again in the SF Bay Area. Six years of daily driving an'87 911 was more than enough. I'd definitely go PDK if I bought a new 911 or Cayman as a DD.

2012 Nissan Xterra. I'm planning to keep this one for a few more years, sadly might be my last Nissan. It seems like everything they make now is garbage.

Maybe now that Ghosn is in jail things will change. I would love to see the Navarra replace the geriatric Frontier

Nissan has made strange choices. The Pathfinder is now a transverse engine glorified minivan and they hardly sell anything without a CVT.

Beautiful Xterra. I’ve heard rumors that they might make it again, but who knows.

Thanks ^^^ yeah who knows. If they do I hope it’s not another mini van or another old international vehicle like what they did with the Armada. Which is a Patrol that’s been in the market for 6 or 7 years already.

100% agree. My wife has always had Nissans. We had a couple of Pathfinders, an Armada and now she has a Murano. It will most likely be our last. They have had some cool vehicles, but I don’t know what they are thinking with the new stuff. She is thinking of making the move to a Range Rover this year.
