I saw that on a Titan forum the other day. I'll definitely be considering the 2015 model.

I hope these manufacturers actually deliver on one of these. I don't know how long ford and Chevy have been talking about this and it's always two years out. I am glad to see dodge actually coming out with one this year.

If this is real, that would give Nissan a lot more consideration to people who normally wouldn't go for that brand. Seems like it might actually happen this time. That's awesome!

Wonder what the weight is. Ive owned a couple Cummins Rams and they were not good at all in mud or deep snow. And they ate bushings for lunch.

Might be worth it if the premium is less than $3k or so. Anymore than that and the non-heavy hauler won't want to pay that premium and the premium at the pumps. And for the haulers, they'll stay addicted to the HD pickups and pay the $10k premium for 850 LB FT. IMO

That would be a good fit for a D2 I guess.
