After this was posted I started looking for Trition trucks on the road...I haven't seen any yet..some older frontiers but not one triton...and I drove 860 miles today bringing my new Ram 3500 home..spending the night in Little Rock. Be home noonish tomorrow.
If there are any around it must be a Yankee truck only.

I think they planned this one out really well. It isn't a half ton but it isn't an HD model either (hence the XD name). By the way they're marketing it I think the pricing won't be at HD levels.

I think the problem is that it's a Titan.. Looking for a Trition or Triton would certainly get you zero results.

I did some research. Yes they still make the Titan. Problem is they only sold 12,567 in all of 2014. With over 50,000 cities and towns in the USA only one out of every four towns will have 1 in the whole town. Pretty slim odds of ever seeing one. Like the old studebaker. Rare.
I did look up the new diesel coming out and it should increase their sales a lot. Going to be a 1/2 ton beast.

Follow up to this earlier thread. I think this test epitomizes the half ton truck phenomenon. Capable vehicles, powerful engines, payload limitations.

I'm not sure I understand the price comments between half ton and HD trucks. The half tons are not any cheaper than the or one tons. They just have the option of a much more expensive engine. Am I missing something?

The Titan XD 4x4 in the SL trim (not top of the line) has MSRP of $55k. My 4x4 Ram 3500 SLT w/ Cummins had MSRP of $58k. I don't see the value yet but I'm sure they have a target market identified.

I can't believe they didn't put an exhaust brake in.
