What’s Behind Sluggish 2016 Nissan Titan XD Sales? Dealers, Marketers or the Truck Itself?

After nearly a year and a half since its debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, we are finally seeing the market’s reaction to the “tweener” 2016 Nissan Titan XD with actual sales results. Unfortunately for Nissan, the numbers aren’t great. The 2016 sales results for April, May and June are all below the 2015 numbers of the outgoing truck and the July numbers were up over 2015 by less than 20 units. With a hot truck market and a new and improved product, the natural assumption would be sales should be up and the fact they aren’t brings up many questions. Are dealers hurting the sales numbers by holding out for maximum profit? Is Nissan’s lack of dealers in truck heavy areas hurting them? How about the lengthy and drawn-out product introduction process? Or is it as simple as consumers don’t understand this product and the price doesn’t make any sense? It could just be all of the above.

Dear Ram – You Could Have Had A Cummins

How Ram Stole The VM Motori 3.0L From GM, and How Nissan Stole the Cummins 5.0L From Chrysler-Fiat

Ram Nissan GM diesel truck engine story

It’s a wild story, but it’s all true. Nissan stole from Ram, Ram stole from GM, and Toyota still won’t talk about a diesel Tundra.

Every once in a while I see something happen in the auto industry that makes me shake my head and wonder, but the story of Ram’s new 3.0L EcoDiesel and Nissan’s new Cummins diesel is a comedy of errors. It’s a little complicated, but the bottom line is this: Ram stole GM’s diesel, Nissan stole Ram’s diesel, and Toyota still doesn’t offer one on the Tundra. Here’s how it happened.
