Its about time!! In existence since 2004 the Nissan Titan has remained virtually unchanged for nine years now which is an eternity in the automotive world. Ford, Dodge, Toyota and Chevrolet have all gone through at least two additional generations of their full size trucks in that time for comparison.
Part of this was driven by Dodge's bankruptcy and restructuring which killed the codevelopment of the next generation of the Titan back in '07/'08. So Nissan was forced to start from scratch and on its own.
Word of the next generation Titan has been all behind the scenes and fairly quiet. We still have no details and until now, no photos, which is rare for such a high profile model that is anticipated to be introduced to the world in early '14 as either a '14 1/2 or a 2015 model. What Nissan has stated is that everything is on the table for this model. Diesel engines, regular cabs, stripper models, varied bed lengths, etc. Evidently those getting this spy shot saw three of these Next Gen Titan mules on the road at the same time with at least one of them towing what looks like a fairly substantial load. The grill looks much more squared off than the current generation truck and reminds me of a Ford SuperDuty or the Nissan NV cargo van. Here's hoping for a lot more photos and details to come out as we go forward!!
