Good by f150 hello Nissan

Well after owning my 2011 f150 ecoboost for 4 years and with over 100.000 miles I have traded it in for a 2016 Nissan Titan xd sv 4x4 with the Cummings 5.0 diesel although a die hard ford fan I have jumped ship and am again a diesel owner I haven't towed our vibe yet but with 11.600 towing capacity I shouldn't have a problem. Ford has priced me out of their line up and with the 2017 models coming out their only going up in price. And before the better brand police chime inn I have spent two weeks comparing the big three to the Nissan. In 1/2 tons Nissan has done their homework with this new truck and engin set up. Will follow up with the first pull experience. Safe travel everyone

Congrats on your new truck, look forward to hearing about your experience. Competition for the big three is a good thing and hope your slice of that works out very well as the tool you need!

Congrats on the new truck. Out of pure curiosity, (not weight police) what kind of payload is the Nissan Cummins coming with? What transmission did they pair it with?

I wanted a Titan Cummins but was very disappointed in the cargo carrying capacity. The 5.0L sounds like a great engine and would love to see it in a F250 one day.

Good luck with your new rig and I hope it puts a smile on your face each time you drive it.

The 2016 Titan XD payload is 2,489 lbs. Towing capacity is between 9,713 and 12,310 lbs. depending on the config. It appears they exceeded the F150 HD/max tow even. That said they aren't cheap IMO.

Most articles show XD diesel payload as 2,000 lbs.

It does appear that the diesel cuts the payload.

The weight of the Diesel engine usually does but still 2000 is better than I would have guessed.... Heck it's better than my old 2009 f250 psd with a payload of 1500 lbs.

They're not cheap at all. Even the ecodiesel Dodge 1500 is not cheap. Might as well step into a 3/4 or 1 ton at those price points.
