Titan 5.6 V8 is free ... GM, Ford. Dodge .. hold your pants !!

Already dusted the GM Vortec 6100, the new Hemi equipped Dodge Ram and Fords runner up in a C&D street test, so let's see how it does in off roading , but the big dogs have already met another one !! Nissan Titan 5.6 V8 4x4 ... 305 Hp ready to rumble.-

yeah it's a nice effort into the full size market. They say the full size truck market will have to listen to Nissan's tunes withthis one ....

that thing is sweet...i wish toyota would get off their asses and get with the modern market of fullsizes.

now if we can just get the imports to put a good diesel into a 3/4+ truck they would be great.

Well speaking of diesels, we have down here, many interesting turbo diesels:

Toyota Hilux 4x4 with a 3.0 Turbo diesel four
Nissan Frontier 4x4 and Xtrail 4x4 with 2.5 Turbodiesel with 133 Hp
Nissan Frontier 4x4 with 3.0 Turbodiesel and 150 Hp
Nissan Patrol with 3.0 Turbodiesel and 150 Hp
Suzuki Grand Nomade Common Rail Turbodiesel
Mazda 2.9 Turbodiesel with 115 Hp, etc.

Some other Koreans like Ssang Yong, Hyundai Terracan, etc. that also have many nice diesels.-

But, I'm really not a diesel driver, you have to change your driving manners in every direction. And the extra buying cost of buying a turbo diesel over the gasoline model , if you don't drive over 30.000 miles/ year it doesn't pay. My 4x4 is not a daily driver.

I drive a Ford Powerstroke turbo-diesel every day and tow with it. I love my diesel.. I just want the imports (Nissan, Toyota, etc.) to import the diesels that they sent to other countries. Or possibly come out with a new one specifically for the fullsize truck market here in the US.

I wish we got some of the stuff (cruisers with diesels, the 70 series, Nissan Patrols, etc) that some of the other countries got.

Well its pretty interesting since we have all brands present (so its extemely competitive) but the volume is small taking into account that we are 16 million people only. All out trucks Nissan, Toyotas, Mazda, Suzukis, etc. are Japenese market models so many Diesels and 4 cilinders around and less V6 and V8s present, except US models.

As far as off roading , we have lots, lots of unspoiled places.

Check this for example :

Normally 50% of the people can do along in English, but don't expect a twin language country. Our Mid Region of Chile is (where our capital city Santiago is) , seen as for climate and looks, like the LA area.-
Recently Chile's biggest Computing Corp. company got fused to Intel Capital to develope systems, etc. for South/Latin America area.-

Love the photo's.... the one of the Jeep coming up on the rocks, looked like TEXAS!

I was looking at the Nissan Pathfinder Armada -- that sucker listed a 9100# tow capacity! I'm a long time Nissan guy, bought the Chevy Crew Cab for towing the Land Cruiser... hmm, looks like that Armada might be interesting (temp gauge for the tranny is a nice touch!). With four kids, dog, camping gear and towing capacity... it was going to be a Suburban... hmmm. Prices are right on Suburban/Tahoe mark... I suspect a better resell value than a 'burban?
