    Everything I ever wanted to know.

    I want to know how I can forget what this looks like. Electroshock?

    Thanks for nothing, TFL.

    I want to see some specs on the gas V-8 and V-6. I'm guessing they'll just pull DI VK56 from Infiniti and some version of the VQ. Traditionally the 4.0L was the "truck" V-6 but it's rather thirsty by modern standards. Maybe a re-tuned version of the 3.5L or 3.7L. The 7AT might be the engine they pair with it instead of the 6AT with the diesel.

    When this finally arrives..... just watch.


    Independent of the amount of impact...... so regardless of the success above a certain minimum amount ....

    FCA, Ford, and Toyota 1500s will feel it more ( far more ) than GM in that class and yet...... when it comes to whatever impact it brings in to the HDs..... well, it won't be Ram........on the list.

    Shame about the AT used.........but then again..... for a while...... may not matter so much.



    This could also be theoretically....... possibly...... the first visible sign of a sort of FCA miscalculation.......


    Then again..... they could probably / possibly talk their way back in..... as long as Toyota does not some how gum up the works....

    Looks like a poor Chinese copy of the previous F-150... the engine will be the only selling point.

    I can see the Titan being successful IF, and that's a big if, it represents a value over the GM twins, the F-150, and the Ram 1500. Otherwise, it's best to go with one of the D3.

    You'd think that Nissan would actually innovate something with the Titan languishing on the vine for so long.

    Nissan didn't have to innovate, they just had to not make honestly the ugliest truck to have ever been sold anywhere ever.

    Nissan CANNOT make a case for the Titan over an American truck outside of the motor, which I guarantee won't save it from the fact that it's definitely one of the ugliest cars for sale.

    Even then I kind of doubt it would sell all that well. The large pickup market is one of the most closed off segments that the industry has, and making matters worse is that the only challengers so far (Nissan, Toyota) have shown relatively minimal resolve to really commit to the segment.

    Either could still find nice niches and sell 150K trucks annually, but that takes real effort. This new Titan is surely a nice truck, but more important is what Nissan does with it over the years, not just its debut.

    I thought I read that Toyota was going to use this motor too? There will be a surge of early sales if the price is right, then it will dwindle down to where it's at now (basically nothing). It's a very unattractive, frumpy and dated looking truck.

    Toyota using the small-Cummins was just a rumor.
