The manufacturers have released sales data from April and in the “no big surprises here” file, the Ford F-Series takes the crown yet again. That’s not to say Ford can relax, however, as GM is nipping at its heels with the Silverado and Sierra combining to come within 253 units of the champ.
The Nissan Titan is still in last place but the new Titan XD and yet-to-be revealed Titan half-ton might have potential to overcome the aging Tundra. Andre and Nathan recently had a chance to test the new Endurance 5.6L gasoline V8 in the Nissan Titan XD. The same engine will be the top choice in the smaller and (presumably) lighter Titan half-ton. They were quite impressed with its power delivery and fuel economy during an impromptu test in Decherd, TN. Will the new Endurance V8 with its 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque be enough to eventually propel the Titan half-ton (and Titan XD, for that matter) into the fifth place spot in the sales rankings? Only time will tell but if it does, the boys in Tennessee will have just cause for celebration.
