you've worked on the new gas version?????Now that it has been unveiled, I would like to discuss the Titan XD from a personal standpoint. I have owned a 06 Titan as well as dozens of GM, Ford dodge and toyota trucks.
Lucky to have the opportunity to drive and work inside/out of dozens of new titans I must say the XD is a completely new animal. The only thing that's about the same are the door handles.
The cummins 5.0 appears very quality and well built from working around it. The truck is reasonably quiet, with very thick interior padding. It is a very large truck, larger than my F250 I would presume, but steers amazingly easy, it does not move like you might think a 7k lb truck would. The seat leather on the platinum is super soft, and the pro4x seats appear to be a different but quality material as well. Back seat room is great. The HID headlights inside the projectors are very classy and accurate.
The 5.6 version as you probably know has the QX80 engine with direct injection, as evident with the high pressure fuel setup atop the intake. This truck feels more peppy than the diesel and I am interested to see how the mpg is on this version.
One main concern I have is tire fitiment. The XD has a 265/xx/20 I cannot remember exact size but they appear small under the truck, however there's about an inch of clearance at the back of the tire to the fender well at half turn which may prevent a 33-34" tire from clearing. Also with the stock wheels and their very positive looking offset, the tire is only about an inch from the upper control arm at its top center position.
Just sharing some thoughts, overall this is a big and luxurious "work" truck... I have not seen any exact pricing figures per option levels yet though.
