BobR Yeah, good to hear from!

Nissan? What happened to your pink Volvo?

LMJD Wow, haven't heard from you in years! Glad you're still alive, hope things are going well.

UTAH I had the Nissan V-8 in an Armada. It felt and sounded like an American V-8. In my opinion, Nissan nailed it.

LMJD Duh, Titan, I couldn't think of the name of them. I still have the C&D test reviews of all five 1/2 tons when the Titan and Tundra first came out in '07: Titan 317 HP, Chevy 367 HP, Dodge 345 HP, Ford 300 HP, Tundra 381 HP.

I see Tundras all over my area and up in Montana too, I'm not brand bashing but I don't think the Nissan pickups sell well because they're so butt-ugly compared to any other of the other 1/2 tons. Nissan makes some classy cars but they got left in the dust when it comes to styling a pickup.
I agree. My brother-in-law just traded his Titan in on an F-350 (bigger trailer now) but he liked that Titan and it had tons of power.

lone_star_dsl Wasn't this the same V-8 they were going to put in the 1500 Rams? With Nissan only selling 20,000 trucks per year (compared to the F-Series' 650,000), I doubt they would be stepping up to compete with the Big 3.

Cummins V8 in Nissan Pickups

Just read this on the Fox News website:
Nissan announces Cummins V8 for next-generation Titan pickup | Fox News
Wonder if Nissan is jumping up to a 3/4 ton version.
