So I went and test drove a 2011 Dodge Challenger yesterday. During the test drive the sales guy asks what I was driving now. I mentioned my Titan and he goes on to tell me that the Titan is being discontinued and that dodge was going to build them for Nissan. I mention that I heard about that deal but that it was canceled. He said correct, but as of about a month or 2 it was back on.

After my test drive I went over to the Nissan dealer right next door, and they also confirmed this information.

Anyone else here about this *New* deal with Nissan/Dodge?

Nope........ This is news to me. Kinda sux though I was hoping the Titan would be receiving the new qx motor with 400 ponies.

I seriously doubt this story. Those salesman must eat lunch together. The development of the 3/4 and 1 Ton Titan Frame based Nissan NV and the 400 HP VD56DE are the surest signs of the future Titan. I think the big surprise will be a hybrid, ecology has to take center stage and Nissan is becoming a leader in Electrics! Ghosn has been firm in statements a year ago, that Nissan is fully committed to round 2 of the Titan line. Nothing in public, suggest any dealings with Fiat/Chrysler exist.

Since when did anyone trust what a car salesman had to say?.....


I would highly doubt that they're back to doing business together. Fiat pretty much gave Nissan the boot when they joined Chrysler...

It's funny reading all the sob story fuel economy threads, but when it comes to future engines, everybody wants the 400+hp 5.6L that's in the QX56. lol! I'd like to see Nissan offer some type of direct injected turbocharged gas motor for the Titan ala Ford Ecoboost. Or, if they have to stick with the Endurance as standard equipment again, at least go to a 7-8 speed tranny with some type of cylinder deactivation system like GM and Chrysler.

The Chrysler deal is definitely dead because the small car platform that Chrysler was going to use from Nissan as exchange for them using the Ram platform for the next gen Titan got nixed as well.

I second that...I'd walk before I bought a Chrysler product...oh wait even if you buy a Chrysler you may still find yourself walking...

I doubt Nissan is going to go back to Dodge after the Fiat takeover, whats funny is that in the NV van like the VK56 and 5 speed tranny is called revolutionary, and in the Titan its considered a dinosaur.

Yeah a 6speed stick or 7speed auto would do wonders for MPG I would think...

Hell yeah it would. I think a sport short shifter on the models with captains chair and a center consol would be badass. Either way a 6 speed would be an all around improvment in driviability and fuel economy.

guys have you not seen where your rpms are at with stock tires and 2.94 gears in 5th gear lock up? if you get the rpms too low, it gets worse gas mileage cause the motor is straining to pull the truck cause of the luggyness. at 73mph in my 2011 in od, im about 1850ish. pretty damn low. i had to put 37s on my dodge diesel to get it below 2000rpms at 70

Sorry but if they make the Titan a Dodge I would probably buy a Ford instead.

i dont know, the dodges have nice interior now, 4 link rear suspension. they ride smoother, and get a lil better mileage. i love the interior of the new ford f-150s the most though

Oh c'mon guys. None of us will be buying trucks by the time the new T comes out.....gas will be $20/gallon! See you all on the electric car forum in a few years! We'll have a "plug and charge your car" meet.
