I was kind of stoked about this truck, and think they are really nice looking... but my Ram does as well on fuel economy and will undoubtedly pull that 9600# better. The torque numbers will not lie about that. I'm pulling 7200# now and regularly get 14 mpg at a sustained 65mph. Sorry but this does not look promising.

My 2014 Titan appeared to be great but it was a let down. I'm not getting hopes up on this one either. I would wait and see after a year to see how they doing.

Supposed to have one at the dealer near me tomorrow for show and tell. Said they won't be on the lots for sale until February. Hope to get some pics.

Before jumping off the deep end about the mpg, let's wait until they get a chance to test it a get it worked up and down the highway for a 100 miles or more. They got to pull up a 6% turn around and go back down a whopping 17miles round trip.

This 5.0 cummins won't be a barn burner, but what it does is bridge the gap between the big gas V8 and the absolutely ridiculous current generation turbo diesel.

90% of us don't need 900lbs of torque to pull our moderate sized RV and/or couldn't justify the $8k markup for one. If this proves to be a reliable power plant and is offered at 3.5-5k over base in our favorite truck brand, I thunk there could be takers.

This 5.0 has the power and torque of the later generation 5.9 cummins and 6.0 powerstroke. Perfect for those who tow 9-12k that is a bit much for a 1/2t but not even working a 6.7 cummins.
