That was all well and good, but what I really appreciated was all the extra interior storage space, from the modular center console to the rear under-seat storage compartment, which provides a nice out-of-sight spot for valuable items such as firearms, fly reels, and optics. The dampened tailgate makes opening and closing far less of a chore, but there was another design element that I thought was a really nice touch. The tailgate is split 60/40, allowing it to operate like a sideways Dutch door. This greatly simplifies grabbing gear like hunting blinds, backpacks, and coolers from the back of the bed. The remote tailgate release is a welcome addition as well.
