Looks neat. I agree with not being keen on the straight and squared up look. On the ohter hand that display looks cool. I'd like one of them.

Gotta agree too...the seats don't look too comfy. It'* just not right if you don't have 9 way switches for your seats.

yea of course, the 5300 has alot less internal parts then the N* because its an OHV engine. However that new 4.4 SC N* there sceaming up looks interesting
Im interested to see if that DOD is gonna have a big effect the gas mileage.

Sounds to be along the same principle as the Dodge that turns off 4 of it'* cylinders. I thought GM played with this in Caddies back in the 70'* when the crunch hit. Anyone?

Like the exterior, interior still isn't very good.

That'* cause it is one. I don't know where or when those photos were taken, but that is undeniably a 97+ GP. Looks like the same body-work as the concept car they brought out to hype the wide-track thing, just different paint and hood.
