I received an un-solicited advertisement for the long bed Frontier in the mail, and decided during lunch to stop by just for giggles. The long bed Frontier does look much nicer than the stubby bed one; it rode well and was fairly quiet. With a 270 HP V-6 and about 1,000 pounds less, it also seemed as quick as the Titan. After the drive, the sales guy asked if he could run some numbers, I said okay because I really didn't want to go right back to work. So, they priced a crew cab long bed SE with tow package, 2 wheel drive, at 21,300 with the rebates. Not too bad. Then, they told me they could give me $12,000 as trade for my Titan; 4x4 SE locking bed cover, PML diff cover 56,000 miles. I laughed at the guy, and then proceeded to berate him about the poor value of the Titan and how it doesn't bode well for his dealership and Nissan in general. He of course offered to "see what he could do" but I just left. Always, ALWAYS, get your keys back as soon as they sit down with you the first time so you can make a quick getaway. So, I guess the Titan has the worst resale of all full size trucks. Does Nissan have any idea how long this type of stigma takes to get away from? I really think they will shoot themselves in the foot in the long run with these low used values. I guess the hassle of trying to sell it privately might actually be worth it.
Oh well, I wasn't really that interested in getting a new truck, so I guess the Titan will be around for quite some time.
