Brand loyalty goes a long way in the truck industry, but recently Ford has been losing some of its (not so ) loyal customers to rival brands like GM and RAM. The Detroit News learnt that Ford is expecting to lose 90,000 sales due to the changeover between models. This is likely because RAM and GM have been purposefully poaching sales from Ford.

Bob Hegbloom, Ram CEO and president, said the brand will continue to attempt to lure customers from Ford during the changeover: "The analysts are saying we're going to go after their share. Heck yes, we're going to go after their share."
There are huge deals going on right now for RAMs and Silverados. So if you want a deal, now is the time.

Nissan might be one to rise up a bit with their new Titan which caught my attention and before now I would have never considered a titan.

others might also give the titan a second look.

Why is that? Why not see a couple of japanese brands do well?


Because despite the unionized nature of the big three workforce, the majority of the capital stays in America and therefore contributes to our economy not Japan's. There might come a day where unions push the last of the factories to Mexico, but for now they've found a way to pay $50/hour for bolt turners.

Most know my thoughts on this issue. I think of being attacked and look at Jap owners as American traitors.


No way would I have anything to do with the shame involved owning those vehicles. For those not students of history and economics, that issue will not deter your decisions.

Even if the Nissan Titan isn't amazing, it will see its sales go up as the next Titan should be better than the last one that wasn't very popular at all. It shouldn't draw too much sales from the big brands though.

Titan didn't suffer because it wasn't capable. Titan suffered because Nissans dealer network is less than half of what Dodge/RAM's is...

All of the people who attacked us are dead and gone. Time to move on. You'll end up like the Indians who want their land back.
