Anyone drive this truck yet? Seems like it would make a good lawn service truck. Base price in $23,000 range includes the V8 engine. The engine is NO JOKE: 303 lb-ft at 1000 rpm!!! That's diesel-force GRUNT from a gasoline engine. 9500 lb tow rating. I'm a Chevy guy and diesel believer but I have to at least test drive this one. 341 lb-ft at 2500 RPM!!! 379 lb-ft peak torque. This would be a police-pursuits worst nightmare...serious power that can cut "cross-country" 5.6-liter V8 Engine The numbers are big. 305 horsepower. 379 lb-ft of torque, with 90% kicking in below 2,500 rpm and a full 80% on tap at a class-leading 1,000 rpm. But 'the story of Titans V8 goes beyond brute strength. No pushrod relic, this engine is a double-overhead-cam beneficiary of Nissan's advanced engineering. An aluminum block and forged crankshaft offer exceptional strength, while keeping performance-robbing weight down. In addition to the easy-breathing DOHC layout, the high-flow intake ensures that every gulp of air counts. To help cut friction, the camshafts and crankshaft are microfinished, and the piston skirts wear a slick coat of molybdenum, all so the engine can deliver more with less effort. And taking a cue from the jet age, an electronic drive-by-wire throttle connects the brain, right foot and throttle more quickly and efficiently than ever.
