Several spy photos have turned up the next gen Titan being tested at various locations in Colorado. With our steep mountain passes, high altitude and rugged terrain, Colorado might be just the place to test the new drivetrain. Interestingly enough, I saw another white Titan test mule today heading east over Floyd Hill (just west of Denver). Coming up from behind in our G37xS, it looked similar to the one in this photo, except it had an all white bed and graphics on the door which stated it was the property of "Cummins Corporation". Otherwise, it resembled a poorly modded and shaved Titan until you got a look at that nose!
I passed it shortly after the turnoff to Central City and going up a hill, before recognizing the zig-zag camouflage graphics. The truck seemed to quickly lost steam as the hill steepened. The driver quickly shifted two lanes to the right, but the truck didn't look like it was struggling (no apparent smoke or exhaust noise), so he might have noticed me studying it. The truck quickly fell back, so I hope the 2.8L diesel just throttled back to keep the curious from getting too good a look.
One thing after getting a close look at that front end. The headlights looked out of proportion to the rest of the Titan, but were the type of sculpted units that have been appearing on several of the newer Nissans for awhile now. The hoodline was clearly taller than our current gen Titans, so either it has one huge radiator (or intercooler?) or just a good disguise. Looking at it in my rearview mirror, I couldn't help but think it looked like a one-ton truck with a half-ton cab and rear bed section.
