In Canada when we think of trucks the F-150, Chevy Silverado and Ram 1500 are the first that come to mind. Why not the Nissan Titan? Maybe it’s because all we ever see are the others. Ford sold 145,694 F-150’s last year, whereas Nissan sold only 2,807 Titans. That explains why you rarely see Titans out in the wild. But just because something is not popular, doesn’t mean it’s not good. You don’t see Ferrari’s every day either, but you wouldn’t automatically think they were temperamental and prone to breaking down… oh, that’s not a good example. How about this… outside of North America there are virtually only 2 pickup trucks: Nissan and Toyota. They own the world the way Ford, GM and Ram own North America. Nissan is a legitimate pickup truck manufacturer, they just get overlooked here. What does the rest of the world know that we don’t? Let’s check it out and see…
August 18, 2020 / After testing a Titan for a week, I returned it, only to find that Nissan has pulled the plug on it here in Canada. That’s rather unfortunate because it’s a really good truck. Watch this space for a full review. It’s still available at dealers and on the website – so grab one while you can. There are still some new 2019’s available along with 2020’s. The last time I checked there was at least $15,000 off and no charge freight, making them very affordable.
