I am thrilled at the prospect of a Nissan diesel!!!!
I'm talking about carrying a heavy load daily , empty there both no more stressed than a car . It's when you put a load on that makes a difference . A termite rig weighs about 1000 pounds loaded . I've used all of them over the years and the s-10 and Ranger will hold up better ,they simply have more metal in them . The 1994 Toyota truck was the last year for a bullet reliable Toyota . Toyota lost a lot of quality with the Tacoma ..

Thanks Pete!

I'm hoping that in the next week I can get on there and work on that site a little more. This next week will be pretty insane for my business though. We have some mass orders of stickers to ship out, and we are launching a daily deals website in my area. Not to mention, Memorial Day tomorrow

I was told by Nissan to expect the Cummings in the NV van in 2013 then it may be a year or two for the Titan when the redesign hits.

A little less ground clearance for 26 mpg , works for me
My Hilux 2.5 D4D has been averaging around 26 mpg just driving around the mountains. It doesn't seem to be much different on the interstate. With a 1000 pound of grapes in the back, mileage dropped to 24. Same pulling my Casita camper. Diesel don't seem to vary that much with load. Biggest load was my wife's order for 100 landscaping bricks. I didn't know till I picked them up that they weighed 22 lbs each. The engine didn't notice the load, but steering was a little squirrely.

Globally, Nissan is creating a new engineering division within its LCV (“light commercial vehicle”) unit to develop diesel engines for light-duty trucks, and U.S. executives have said for years it is a move the automaker must consider for the Titan to be a true player in the truck market.
