I found this review:

Nissan engineers tell us that fuel economy will be boosted for 2009 when Titan adopts a new torque lockup strategy. We’re expecting this to be accomplished through a new, more efficient multi-function torque converter for the truck’s standard 5-speed automatic transmission that will disengage from the driveline when idling at a stop and use a lockup clutch to quickly match engine and transmission speeds during acceleration. This should provide the Titan with a 1 to 2-mpg bump driving around town. Think of it as taking some of a manual transmission’s inherent fuel economy advantages and applying them to an auto gearbox.

Sounds like you could get a similar effect by slipping the transmission into neutral when stopped.

I am guessing this would explain the "hard downshift" when coming up to a stop sign??
