News reports from Japan confirm that Nissan will put a diesel in its Titan full-size pickup truck by 2009, but so far the Japanese automaker shows no hint of interest in launching a truck in the heavy-duty pickup segment.

Nissan reportedly will buy V8 diesel engines from International Truck and Engine Corp. Automotive News has reported that the company also may offer a low-budget V6 gasoline engine in the Titan in the future. The Titan’s only powerplant is a 5.6-liter, 317-hp, 385-lb-ft V8 gasoline engine.

Nissan had hoped to sell 100,000 Titans per year when the truck debuted in the 2004 model year, but so far the model has sold at about 85,000 per year.

Great timing. Now that diesel prices are going through the roof and all three domestic diesels have plummeting resale value.

My local dealer tells me that a year ago Duramax diesels sold at book and now some are coming in at of 1/2 book. Though Fords and Dodges were not selling as strong as the Duramax, they are now seeing the same effects in regards to resale value.

:blink:

I thought Nissan was going to ditch the Titan. What happened while I was gone? Did Nissan have a sale at Happydale Sanitarium?
