    A pleasure to read and the pictures are fantastic.
  • This is just silly - an F250 crew cab with the Powerstroke would put up those fuel economy numbers all day long and twice on Sunday.
  • Nice truck, but the mileage and range seem to make it an also ran.

    This is just silly - an F250 crew cab with the Powerstroke would put up those fuel economy numbers all day long and twice on Sunday.

    As probably would the Chevy and RAM 3/4 ton equivalents. So, what problem does the Titan XD solve? In my mind, none. It weighs and costs as much as a real 3/4 ton truck, but yields less performance than at least a couple versions of the current F150. So, it's a 'tweener that offers the worst (so to speak) of both worlds.

    Had this trip been taken in my 2016 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel, range between fill-ups would have been at least 600 and likely closer to 700 miles each time, fuel economy would have been about 25mpg, lower DEF usage, and steering wheel and seat heaters that work as they should.

    Nissan has to be missing their sales target with this King Banana slip-up. Now if only they'll learn their lesson and come out with a new and much improved Frontier (and Xterra) version.

    @bohio - the EcoDiesel has somewhat lesser capability both towing and hauling than, say, an F150 with either EcoBoost - but it gets GREAT fuel economy for what it can handle - you give up something, but you GET something really tangible in exchange. The Nissan? Agree - you get nothing in return for its poor fuel economy and range...can you imagine the fuel economy and range with this think when towing? You'd be stopping every 250 miles. Yes - any 3/4 ton domestic would beat it - not just an F250.
