Don’t expect Nissan to build a new Ram rival – report
Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado sales are growing in Australia, and the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra are arriving soon – but don’t expect Nissan to follow suit.
Automotive News reports Nissan still has no plans to replace its Ram 1500-rivalling Titan pickup truck, and production of the model will end late in 2024.
That kills any chances of the Titan coming Down Under, even as sales of large pickup trucks surge.
Automotive News reported back in June 2022 word from a source that the Titan was dying, and it was just a matter of when.
“There’s no plan engineering’s working on for replacing it, updating it,” the source said, adding, “It’s dead.”
Its anticipated demise will allow Nissan to free up more capacity at its Canton, Mississippi factory to produce electric vehicles.
