I purchased a 2004 Nissan Titan King Cab SE with towing package, Power Buckets (No leather), spray in bedliner( as opposed to the entire bed package)and it had a sticker of $27.3K. I did my homework at Edmunds (cheap plug) as well as got preapproved at Nissan for the loan. I walked into the dealership having already identified an instock truck at another dealer. Showed them all my data and told them they had one chance to make me a deal. After the $2K rebate and such, I walked off the lot for $22,850. I am pleased and I left them a little profit in the deal. Great truck...great Deal. DrZ

This may be dumb, but I'm looking into a Titan CC and wonder how close Nissans figures are for MPG. I see a few posts for 14 and 15 mpg. Are these highway or in-town? Wife and I bought a Murano that showed 20city and 25hwy. I know these are best-case scenarios but I can't get it to break 16mpg with a tail wind and a feathered foot. She only drives 5-10 miles a day so I'm not really upset, but I drive 350-500 per day and I'm feeling that a 10-12mpg truck maybe isn't the path for me.

FYI, a crossover pipe is usually there for a good reason - A lot of hotrod publications have tested various exhaust setups and the crossover pipe type almost always makes more power for some reason.
To the guy who is concerned about MPG - That one reason I don't own a full size truck anymore. I didn't have a need for it very often and they suck gas like crazy. I see most folks get 12-16 depending on what you are doing. Towing can be even less.
#1108 of 1475 MPG Question.

If you are getting the 4x4, big tow & off road package you can expect to get 13.5 - 14.5, maybe a little more if you are lucky. A little less if you are heavy on the gas. Its a truck with lots of giddyup, so IMHO I'll gladly pay a little more at the pump because the smile is worth it. The truck also hauls the load. Have already hauled several full truck loads of green oak firewood. Definitely knew the load was on the back but still plenty of torque left. This truck is one bad boy.

I am real hard on the truck, It is a 4x4, big tow. I find it getting any were from 10 to 13 mpg s. Thats 4000 miles worth of gas so far

Thanks folks for the feedback. Guess I'll have to settle for a Frontier because I'm with hogboy, I don't think I could keep my foot out of 305HP. With my present van pulling 18-20MPG, the ol' wallet may get a little lonely, missing all those green friends of his I'm still jealous of all you Titan owners!!!!!

thats the ironic thing here...the frontier, even with the smaller v6, only gets a couple MPG more than the titan...i would also gladly pony up the extra gas $ to have the larger, more capable truck.

For me, deciding between and Frontier and a Titan is a tough decision. While I realize the MPG difference is small, the Frontier gives me all the towing and hauling capability I need, and the extra size of the Titan is actually a drawback for driving and parking in the city. So basically I am leaning to the Frontier because I think it would be easier to live with, even though it is not much cheaper and it does not save a whole lot of gas.
You got to hand it to Nissan for giving us these great choices.

My 95 V6 4X4 Nissan pickup gets about 17 MPG in combined driving. The mileage is generally the same (city or highway)because of low gearing. It drops down to dismal 12MPG when towing a 5000 lb trailer though. Plus the truck will not go very fast with a heavy trailer.
I like the compactness of the truck and since I do not tow trailers frequently, it does the job for me. I would definitely get a full size truck like Titan if I did more towing.
