I thought the new XD rear end was 10.5 inches, same and the tundra. What makes you think it's week. Not trying to defend it just wondering. The original Titan rear end was extremely weak. I went through two of them when I had my Titan.

The axle is a large purpose-built American Axle Manufacturing design. The rear differential measures 9.84 inches with 3.5-inch axle tubes, while the front differential (4x4 models) measures 9.25 inches. Both are manufactured by American Axle. Also available is an Electronic Locking Rear Differential.

It is an ugly truck with new technology, that's probably why it's moving slow.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

Just looked at the price on the Titan Diesel base price for the 4x2 crew cab is $40k and its still a 1/2 ton truck. Make it a 4x4 and the price jumps $3k, this is the base model. The platinum is $57k in 4x2 configuration, and $60k for the 4x4 configuration, that's without adding any additional features. You can buy a 3/4 or 1 ton truck for 1/2 that price and have a much more stable tow vehicle. With these price points I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a 1/2 ton truck. The $34k is getting pretty ridiculous as well. The trouble is the more gadgets they add every year keeps pushing the prices ever so slightly higher.

With all the emissions crap on diesels anymore I see absolutely no point in wasting money on one, they have them so choked down like they do the gas engines, they get crap for fuel economy in the real world, and the ridiculous price on top of it and additional maintenance costs, unless you drive it all day long every day it will never pay for itself.

Why doesn't everybody just drive a Chevrolet Spark and be done with it?

I've been under the Xd Titan and the rear end looks small for the purpose that it's built. It's defiantly smaller than the Tundra rear end.
The transmission looks stout though it's made by asin

The Nissan Titan diesel is $40-65k I couldn't imagine what Toyota would want for a diesel. So why would you spend $40K+ on a 1/2 ton truck when you can pickup a 3/4 or 1 ton in the same price range? That's what I'm getting at.

I can't see buying a 1/2 ton with a diesel, its still a 1/2 ton truck no matter what drive train you throw under it...same goes for the Titan. I wish Toyota would step up and build a 3/4 or 1 ton truck, it would be awesome, and it would get me back on the lot, no I wouldn't want a diesel, not with the emissions controls put on them now but a 3/4 ton with an upgraded gas engine would be very nice. I'm sure they could do something with the current engine to boost fuel economy, although when you throw a 4.30 gear ratio in it you can't do much I wouldn't think.

If they could build a diesel without the emissions and electronics controls it would get my interest, but from what I've seen and heard in the real world the emissions kind of killed the diesel's benefits for fuel economy and reliability .

Toyota needs to add a manual transmission as well, right now the Ram with the diesel is the only way to get a manual transmission anymore.

I was in the just about to pull the trigger when I decided that I have already spent more money on aftermarket things/options on this ride that I'd be better off keeping it for a while.



Well this afternoon while I was returning/making some calls to let the sales people know I was no longer interested this conversation took place:



Me: "Yeah, I have decided to hold on to my truck for a while longer, I just can't justify the new costs, starting all over."



Salesman: "That's just fine, thank you for calling me back, please keep me mind should you be in the market again..."



Me: "Lol, oh I'll be in the market again, the Tundra is supposed to be getting a Cummins like the Titan too right?"



Salesman: "Actually no. It's going to be a HINO diesel and it's going to out for the 2017 model year."



Me: "Wow, thanks for your time."



So I'm just saying I'm kinda glad I choose to save my pennies now so I can blow them later.



I have nothing else to report except that information came from a CARPRO certified dealer and for those of you that aren't aware or haven't used that service I highly recommend it.


Here's Toyota response to people's tundra complaints

2016 integrated brake controller
2016 larger gas tank
2014 new sheet metal
2008 Promise new HD diesel truck
