    Not sure what the point of a Mercedes benz mid size pick-up is..
    but for Nissan it will be a great fit!

    Are you taking about the M-B grille, or the Navara?



    I really like the M-B grille, and the Navara grille is non-offensive to me. I'm not in love with the upswept look on the Navara, but that might change on the Frontier.

    I think the X-Class is pretty horrible. Have you all seen the interior? It looks cheaper than the Navaras. The bottom side of the dashboard is literally a swath of hard shapeless plastic. And the bed and rear of the truck look shapeless and cheap.

    But I hope the Frontier is a little more rugged looking than the Navara. I really don't understand why the Frontier is so delayed after the Navara debut it they're essentially the same truck. Or maybe it has to do with them wanting to focus on the Titan from a marketing standpoint, as the current Frontier sells itself.

    I don't like that HUGE MB emblem in the center of their grill, just unnecessarily large IMO.
    On the fence about the upswept look, hope it's better in person than in the pics. I do like it better than the way the rest of the PU market is going with these huge, blocky front ends & grills - the Peterbuilt/big rig wanna be look

    They did say that. It seems the wanted to get the Titan out the door completely before hyping the next Frontier. I think the only thing left for the Titan is the V6 and that will likely go largely unnoticed by the main stream public

    Nissan V6s are pretty stout.
    Running the 4.0 in the Pathy and its a beast (for a Naturally aspirated V6)

    If this significantly reduces the cost of a 4x4 titan crewcab I am game

    Are they still going to offer the V6? I haven't heard anything about it and they mentioned that the latest variant released completed the Titans roll out. I would imagine the V6 would definitely help them on the commercial sales front.

    Speaking of Titan, I am starting to see them very frequently here in Houston. They definitely have some presence to them and I don't mistake them for F-150s like I thought I would.

    I am seeing more Titans here as well in the D.C. area. There was 3 days last week where I saw 2 within 5 minutes of each other. I am also seeing a ton of Muranos, I saw 4-5 back-to-back today alone... and of course there are plenty of Rogues. There is this one street I pass by frequently where two new CR-Vs are parked in front a house, they've been there for about two months, yesterday a brand new Rogue was parked in front of them, not sure who owns it though.

    Up here in New England, Rouges, Pathfinders are the things I see the most. I also strangely see a very large number of Maximas. I have probably seen about 30 Titan's (all including XD) total since it's release in 2016.
