    And the award for the oldest truck lineup goes to Nissan. Their current lineup, the mid-size Frontier and full-size Titan stand at six and seven years respectively. Car & Driver says their replacements are going to be awhile.

    Starting with Titan, a source tells Car & Driver we’re still “a couple of years” away from seeing the finished product. This corroborates our story last November saying the Titan could be released by 2014.

    As for the Frontier, development is further behind the Titan. Sources say the Frontier will remain a body-on-frame vehicle, most likely sharing the frame with the Xterra.

    Frontier, like Tacoma, is in that difficult spot where it's too big and thirsty for a compact... I believe Nissan and Toyota should discontinue their full-size trucks and the SUVs that are based on them.

    It's time for another compact truck revolution.

    There is a tuffness that UniBody cannot compete with when it comes to Body on Frame. Unibody CUV's do not seem to last like a Body on Frame SUV.

    At the same time, we could see Nissan come out with an amazing Body on Frame Hybrid using small Turbo Diesel that can and does handle the off road life and people would flock to it.

    "Don't mind me," says the Jeep Comanche. "I know it's hard to believe I'm a unibody design."

    The Jeep Cherokee then chimed in, "Don't forget about me, dear brother. How could you? My unibody construction is hell-and-trail proven, too."
