Exterior

2014 continues to exhibit the theme of an old style SUV that when painted olive (Army Green) looks very much like a military vehicle. There are 6 available hues, all coming with a Dark Charcoal interior.

The roof is available in a contrasting white. Also on the roof, you will find a luggage rack affording extra stowage space.

The front features single round headlights framed by a grille which aids air flow from a center hood scoop. The amber directional signals are long and rectangular. A large reinforced bumper finishes off the front.

The side view finds rear hinged access doors allowing for easier entry to the backseat.
The rear is mainly made up of the huge spare tire mounted over the swing out tailgate.

Interior

The interior is basic as you might expect of a car made to navigate rugged terrain. The upholstery is water resistant while the backseats can be folded to a 60/40 configuration.

You also get power windows and door locks, A/C and a CD stereo. Options include a 6 CD changer and auxiliary gauges including one that meausres the outside temperature, vehicle pitch, and heading.

In any event, if the Cruiser is your choice over a Jeep Wrangler or Nissan Xterra, it starts at around $28,000.
