12k towing capacity rivals that of the 2015 f150s and 1500 silverados, payload is average. its like the 1500HD that chevy did from 2001-06, which imo flopped. but the datsun does look like a nice truck

The best way to explain the difference is that if the Titan competes with a Silverado 1500, the XD competes with something a step higher, but not a full 2500. Think of it as a Silverado 2000 or something – a step between light and heavy duty.

Another press release says the trans will be made by Aisin which also make the current trans behind the heavy duty Rams. I don't work with the diesel stuff so I don't know the quality of it in the Ram, but I know Aisin has been around for a while so the trans should be pretty good.

Yeah, in the world's ugliest truck. You want to buy a Nissan full-size pickup truck just to get a diesel v8? Knock yourself out.

meanwhile, it can only match the ratings of the gasoline powered half ton trucks from the Americans.

That new Titan is ugly as sin. Really ugly. They just upsized the grill and headlights to keep up with the Big Three, but they totally forgot about making it work with the new body panels.
That 5.0 Cummins is damn near a decade old at this point. All that, and it doesn't do anything that a typical gas engine does.

Dodge did something smart and challenged Ford at the economy game by introducing a diesel V6, because they realized that the diesel V8 would be nice, but the truck's limitations have been reached. To spend the money that Cummins did on that diesel to net another 500-1k towing is not worth it.

That's why the Mini-Max never made it.

The Colorado is a decently sized pickup.
And yes, we talked about the diesel Colorado 100 times. It's coming later this year.

Still want to know what the price point and mileage is going to be. So far the numbers for the Colorado aren't exactly awe-inspiring. I get similar (1-2 lower) in a full size hemi 1500 that has nearly 100HP more on tap, and mine is the older trans version with the '6' speed (really a 5 speed).

So you are comparing real-world numbers vs EPA numbers? Please don't do that.

Well, as soon as I have real world numbers on the colorado I'll be sure to compare.

Sadly this won't bring down the prices of the HD trucks but perhaps just bolster their price even more. Damnit!!

Read that as well. Pretty cool they are opening up the diesel game. The use of lightweight materials in certain areas is a nice touch. Aluminum body panels means hopefully less chance of corrosion too.

I wonder if GM will offer a bigger infotainment screen like the new Ram.
