Report: Titan Will Live On Without Chrysler, Says Nissan CEO

Somehow Nissan will bring a successor to the Titan pickup truck to market, although it’s not known how or when. In an interview with InsideLine, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said that the Titan will remain. “”Titan will have a replacement,” he said. “We are staying in the large pickup truck market.”

The next Titan was expected to be a rebadged version of the new Dodge Ram, but Chrysler canceled plans for that project shortly after emerging from bankruptcy protection.

That being said, Nissan may continue to use an updated version of the current Titan’s platform, which also underpins vehicles like the Armada, Pathfinder, Xterra, Frontier and Infiniti QX56..

    Glad to hear than Nissan has changed their mind on the Titan/Dodge idea. To me, it would be a big step backwards to team with MOPAR on anything.

    As a former Dodge owner, I can honestly say my 2009 Titan out performs the old dodge in every way except for breaks, Nissan has to do better
