..that you can't have a console mounted gated shifter because...

According to Nissan, the average American truck buyer needs cubby space for three different cups: Water, flavored sports drink, and a repository for chewing tobacco spittle. (No, we're not making that up).

I personally hate console mounted, gated shifters in trucks. They waste space, they get in the way and they're a trap for dust and debris.

Ideally it should be a column mounted shift selector and paddles for manual gear selection.

I didn't think that chewing tobacco was popular enough to have any vehicle make design decisions to accommodate it. Three different cups at the same time? Talk about high maintenance.

Cup holders end up being used for a number of different things. I use on cup holder to prop up my iPhone so I can see what notification comes up when it dings at me.

Another has a beverage in it, pens, box cutter, few other odds and ends that a person ends up collecting and needing in a working vehicle. I hope it has removable inserts though, which really simplifies cleaning.

+1 for removable inserts! I like the way Ford does it, the inserts shrink the diameter of the cup holder, so you have a degree of beverage flexibility ;) (although I don't think that's exclusive to ford in any way...)
