I doubt that's what it will look like. They know what they have to compete with in the truck market, there's no way they'd shoot themselves in the foot like that. And I have to think they'd change up the bed/cab to flow with the new front end...
It's probably a powertrain mule. I bet the cummins (despite supposedly only being an I4) didn't fit well in the previous engine bay so they used an NV front end and tore it up to make a little more room. That truck still has the pre-2013 tailgate on it. Check out the tailpipe though. It looks a bit fatter than the current one.
Crew cab with the king cab length bed?? That doesn't look like a legit long bed, and it's definitely not a short bed like my Titan. Prolly has the small cummins in it that's been in testing for a while now.
ill be switching to a different brand if that's what the new ones look like, I wouldn't be caught dead in that truck, I hope they are just using it as a mule and plan on making vast improvements, otherwise it's adios nissan for me.
I hope/have a strong feeling that it's a chopped up mule to test the new powertrain. I don't think Nissan would release something ugly for its customers! If they do, I am off to an Ecoboost in 2014/2015.
