You can find Cummins 3.9l four cylinders around, but they are old technology. A little unrefined, very heavy. Just a 5.9 with two cylinders missing.

So I just had a look at a Titan XD SV at the local dealership, and by look, I mean at the door sticker. This model is second from the bottom of their lineup, so less content than the others, but this particular truck had quite a few options.

Payload was 1594 pounds. This is only 200 more than our Tundra so I don't think that would enough of an improvement for our liking, but others may think differently.

I have only seen one on the road so far.
Pricing at $63,000 is too much.
Not a game changer. Not even a player.
I could replace my Tundra Limited with a new Platinum for maybe $50,000, but at 51,000 miles we'll keep rollin'- not time yet-

At that price , I will stay with the ram 2500 and 6.7 and I know it ain't underpowered...no such thing as too much money or too much horsepower....

$63,000 will get you a new Silverado High Country HD2500 Duramax/Allison 4x4.
Titan is still a just a half-ton truck with gooseneck ball in the bed.
Or $50,000 will get you any brand top-of-the- line half ton.

Still not even in the game.
2004-2015 Titan never was in the game.
Even Tundra barely in the game, but for sure closer to being in the game than Titan.
Just driving around day yo day I see many more Tundras than Titans.

Well, the $63k Titan XD is MSRP for the most pimped out Platinum Version. Because it is new, the dealers are actually holding out for MSRP because there is quite a bit of pent-up demand from the Nissan community.

Once the initial cadre of "gotta have one at whatever the cost" has disappeared, the truck price will be negotiable like anything else on the road.

The middle of the road SV trim, with the Cummins diesel and some decent goodies on it prices at about $47k on the Nissan website. That truck specs out at 12000# towing with just under a ton of payload. I am not a diesel guy, so I am waiting for the specs on the gas version of the truck (allegedly available mid-summer).

I am, unabashedly, a Nissan Titan fan. My 2004 Titan has towed my 31' Sovereign over 65000 in the past ten years with zero failures and zero drama. I have about four grand in maintenance/upgrades over that period. The truck is still quiet, responsive and reliable. I will say that the clear coat has failed completely and it is ugly.

For me, the new XD gives me more payload and more torque (both engine versions) wrapped in Nissan realiability.

We'll see how it turns out. I am in no hurry as my 2004 is running like a Swiss watch even though I approach 200000 miles.

Mike

I thought $70,000 was max MSRP, but I don't know that for a fact.
Just hearsay-
Reduce the price 10K-
It still isn't a game changer or major player-
Nice truck?
Absolutely!
It just ain't MY truck.

Can you swing by and see what the payload (cargo capacity) is? That would be a good number to know for this truck!

Hi from AZ. . . I just drove the Titan with a Cummins V-8 today, & I thought it was a pretty nice truck. And by the way, pimped out Tundras, Fords, Rams, etc are pushing $60k. I'd probably give it some time to work out any bugs, as with any new package, but I see no reason NOT to consider it. I had Nissan 4WD trucks for years & they were good trucks. I'm happy with my Ecoboost Ford, but it seems foolish not to look at the competitors. . . just sayin. . .Craig

Craig... Did you happen to have a look at the door jamb to see what the cargo capacity is with the Titan? If it's at Nissan on FLW in Scottsdale, I'll swing by and have a look.

8,900# GVW
Impressed me-
More like 3/4 ton GVW
A salesman actually came out and talked to me.
Didn't occur to me to ask.
Not ready to trade my Tundra...

Just the best pickup truck engine ever built with two cylinders missing? Sounds intriguing.

This is from an XD I looked at a few weeks ago. It was a Crew Cab SV 4X4. The MSRP was $54,000.
