Nissan to Build All-New Version of Titan Full-Size Pickup Truck
February 10, 2013
Nissan is planning to build an all-new version of its Titan full-size pickup truck, though the automaker hasn't yet announced a timeline for this new vehicle. The company said it wants the new vehicle to appeal to fleets and commercial vehicle owners and retail customers.
"As a full-line manufacturer, Nissan aims to be a player in every part of the truck business," said Pierre Loing, vice president, Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, Nissan Americas. "Our truck teams in Michigan, Arizona, Tennessee and Mississippi are hard at work on a next generation full-size truck line that will expand Titan's appeal to a broader spectrum of truck buyers, including the all-important skilled trades-buyers. Our new truck will be filled with Nissan innovation and expertise without compromise."
In addition to its plans for its all-new Titan, the automaker said sales of its Frontier compact pickup truck are still experiencing strong demand, with sales up more than 35% over the last two years.
Also in its commercial vehicle lineup, Nissan said the NV200 small commercial van goes on sale this spring. The NV200 is also the platform for New York City’s “Taxi of Tomorrow.”
