Titan Is Being Axed

Recommended Posts

2024/2025 looks to be when the plug will be pulled on the Titan. Honestly, I don't think anyone will miss it except for the folks looking to score a good deal on a full size truck. Yet, another automaker realizing that the American pick up market is one of the most competitive segments out there. You can't release a truck and barely update or innovate, and expect to have much market share. Only Toyota can do that and that's only based on their reputation for quality.

The marketing for the Titan was terrible to non-existent. That probably had a little to do with it as well. And Let's not forget the fiasco of the Cummins diesel. But then again-Ford knows a little about diesel fiascos.

Definitely. As the market for gasoline and diesel-powered full size pickup trucks declines and eventually withers away, having competitive BEV pickups will be the key to success for any company that wishes to compete. Neither Nissan nor Toyota have yet announced entries in that category.

When Toyota does it will be class competitive.

I guess this means the van that was based on the Titan is going too. 

 

I fixed your topic title too...had an extra A in it.

That's correct about Nissan NV1500/2500/3500. Nissan actually stopped production of those in summer 2021. Nissan NV and NV200 Will Be Discontinued to Make Way For a New Strategy - The Fast Lane Truck (tfltruck.com)

Nissan could have made the Titan viable if there was a value proposition, but it really isn't that much less expensive than an F-150/1500/Silverado/Sierra.

The Big 3 has much more robust fleet sales operation and that makes a big difference in pickup truck and van market. Nissan could never break into the big leagues because of that.
