2016 Nissan Titan XD Diesel

Not sure where this one going to fit in but it would power house for TT but no so much for a 5er. Some really interesting comments from the testers.

Not my cup of tea for 58K (and no exhaust brake) that is for sure.....If your looking for a diesel I would go with any of the 3/4 tons or 1 tons from the big three for that price unless your looking for maybe alittle better MPG.....

Ouch, 58k... I paid 50k for my 3/4 ton. 1 tons were like 500 bucks more.

Yea not for 58. You can buy a brand new fully loaded 3/4 ton for around 50 to 52. But it's a cool truck. In the end it's still only a 1500..

A lot of money for only 12,300 pounds towing, my loaded 3,500 ram does all that and I still average 19.5 per gal. Per tank with out towing and don't have to worry about what I load up in my camper, I paid 54,000 in 2015, I have all the add ons - ram more bang for the bucks for me any way

I thought the interest part was they had to pile cider blocks on the back the trailer to get the pin weight within specs then they had drop on passengers to not exceed the GVWR.

yeah, well a 1500 / 150 with a big heavy diesel... It might do well but I have always though this is the truck, same with the ED Ram, for those who want a truck to be cool... But want the MPG of a Prius.. Gets them the cool truck but lets them keep a reasonable MPG that most cannot get on a typical truck.

Perhaps of bigger concern is from where the truck came from. When I last visited a Nissan lot, I left very quickly after reading the new stickers that indicate the percentages by country that manufactured their vehicles components and/or assembled. At a minimum, 55% from Mexico of the models I saw, many models higher than 55%. While this one has a Cummins engine, where did the rest of it come from?

I think a lot of stuff comes from Mexico any more.

All the major auto makers selling in the U.S. use Mexico for both parts and labor. Ram HDs, Chevy crew cabs and Ford's Powerstroke are all made in Mexico.
