Does anybody care about anything other than the new diesel option?

Ugly trucks are a dime a dozen these days. What sets this one apart?

Agreed, but if Nissan prices this new Titan at or below GM Colorado stratospheric prices, they may have a winner. I drove and priced the new aluminum F150, $50K + for a mid range half ton PU. Competition usually improves the breed .

That's why I'm wondering what else is new. An emissions saddled diesel is not enough to get me to come on down and drop big coin on something that looks like that. I'm sure it's less $$$ than the Toyota tundra and better quality and reliability than F150. It's a different league than than Tacoma Colorado frontier. Its chevy 6.2 competition IMO

Now if that cummins comes available with a manual trans, I'd maybe go for a test drive....I can only assume my money is safe, but I'll be keeping an eye just in case

I laugh in your general direction. Pick-up pricing keeps getting more ridiculous and people keep on buying.

We may have differing opinions on what midline is, but you can get a pretty nice F-150 for lower 40s. Let the newness wear off and they'll be selling for mid 30s.

And YES- competition is good. Ford has the aluminum body, ecoboost. Ram has the V6 diesel. Lots are finally using direct injection. Toyota better step it up.

New trucks keep getting more expensive because people are buying trucks that are optioned out like luxury cars. Leather, heated seats, power everything, navigation, big stupid wheels, etc, etc.

You can still buy trucks that are affordable....but they will be optioned out like TRUCKS, not luxury vehicles.

I just got this for under 30k. V8, 4WD, more electronics inside than I care for. Great vehicle for towing or working, but very comfortable too, and relatively cheap.

Around Denver, used PU prices are at a premium - push back on new truck prices even when they "discount" $8K off msrp.

Japs got into our market with quality and low prices, far fetched, but the door is open for the new Titan if they can do it.

Now that diesel fuel is ~ $1 higher than gas, makes the new Cummins a tough sell. Hopefully Nissan improved their gas motors mpg.


Pricing is making a large grey area now, new models are very pricey, existing designs that have been around years are usually less $ - yes a Titan is not directly comparable to a GM Colorado, but if the price is the same or less makes it a viable alternative to be considered IMO. It it's priced the same as the big three, good luck Nissan.

Thats a bad ass looking truck, thou holding to current trends its a blend of everyone elses styles and curves.

I saw a few years ago it was a china made pickup about the size of a ranger or a bit smaller that had a little 4 cylinder cummins in it with a 5 speed manual and talking to the driver it was a pretty fun truck to drive.

Thanks PM, you got it linked!

Was hoping to show Nissan's new truck for us to see the details and scrutinize. If priced right (cheap) they could have a winner, Time will tell.

Funny, but from the design standpoint - it doesn't look very original. I see Ford Superduty from the side and a mix of Chevy and Toyota from the front.

I guess you can only do so much, but then again, I thought that when Dodge redid their front ends with the step fender - so no pass for Nissan.

Like everyone else, I'm curious more about the motors. Lets here how Cummins runs and what options they have the motors. The truck has potential and competition is gooooood.
