    2015 Nissan Titan Lineup To Grow

    By William Maley

    The Nissan Titan hasn't really changed since its introduction back in 2003. Sticking with the same 5.6L V8 engine and the choice of either a extended or crew cab means the Titan hasn't set the sales charts on fire. Sales last year for Titan totaled 21,576, a far cry from the nearly 87,000 sales in 2005, its best year. But with the 2015 Titan, Nissan is hoping the new model will become a contender.

    Edmunds had the chance to sit down with Pierre Loing, vice president of product and advanced planning and strategy for Nissan North America, Inc. Loing hinted that a new Titan was on the way and is expecting to take a big slice of the truck market.

    "Reaching 100,000 is certainly possible. We believe there might be a recipe to grab some of this huge segment," said Loing.

    Loing revealed that the next Titan will have a full engine lineup and variety of cabs, including a regular cab. Loing also said that the pricing for the Titan will be changed as well.

    Despite the ambitious sales goal, Loing admits that even with the resdesign, it will be tough to bring in buyers.

    "It is domestic driven. High loyalty to domestic products. So the question is, 'Why bother?' It is still a huge segment. Whether it is through build quality, equipment, some price advantage, you name it, it may work. We will try again."

    I think we will see an increase in companies pushing to get into the full size market before some realize it is little to late and just need to stay focused on their auto lineup with small size trucks that people will want.

    • Have to say that this is one of the best write ups I have seen on a state-by-state ability to see what your state tax credit is for EVs. Every electric vehicle tax credit rebate available, by state (electrek.co)
    • Yes the Kent IKEA is still there, none in the north end. I agree with you, hate the maze, hate the cheap stuff they sell, was not willing to wait in a long line to try the food, so who knows if I would like it. Over all, my son likes IKEA and I think it is because it is cheap. I would say Acura took till 2022 to fix their issues with the RDX and MDX.  My sister inlaw, wifes sister has a 2019 of each. She drives the MDX and her husband drives the RDX. Both have had all types of electrical issues, water leak issues and drivability issues that took till this year to resolve. Both are retired and on a fixed income now otherwise they say they would trade them in on something else, not an Acura. Maybe they are just unlucky, but I will say that I think Acura built a name and then went cheap to maximize profits from the line.
    • I would like to introduce you to the 2019 Acura RDX: the one a lot of people say to stay away from.  It took Acura at least a year to correct those issues in time for the 2021 model.
    • First of all, 800V is well supported for those fast chargers and EVs that support it as they do charge in a fraction of the time and weight less than a 400V system. Yes, 800V costs more now, but like all things, economy of scale brings it down. GM, Porsche, VW, Audi and BMW have all acknowledge it as well as Kia and Hyundai and why Honda went with the Ultium 800V system for their EVs. The reason the Equinox will start around $30,000 is due to the mass production bringing costs down. As far as Charging at home, yes if you're only going CHEAP with 110V charging, you will be lucky to pull down 10kWh charging. If you have a proper 220V charger installed, they are 50 AMPs and do charge much, much faster. Yes, there are 220V 38/40 AMP chargers, but the ones from the OEMs as well as ChargePoint that are sold or included are all 220V 50 AMP chargers. Even Amazon sells them, but you get what you pay for. This is in its infancy and so nothing is perfect yet, but we have specs to get there and those that do invest get out of it what they expected. Those that go cheap, well, your mileage will vary.
