The new Nissan Titan seems worthy of getting a look especially with that diesel powerplant, which so far seems to be getting a very positive response. What helps is they went with Cummins, which they're pushing hard, there's even a big cummins badge on the fenders.

I've had a few buddies that had the Titan, albeit not in Diesel, but with the amount of bad experiences they've had suspension, axles, and steering wise, I'm planning on steering clear of them

Oh okay my apologies. But even at that, you're right, it's definitely not a bad price. Negotiation is possible along with throwing features/add-ons. Just have to stand your ground and push for the best

The Ram 1500 HFE starts at $ 37,405 so around $40k is a good price but this is dependent on the standard features and final fuel economy ratings. If all it has is better fuel economy and it costs more, may as well go with the eco diesel.

Definitely, We just need some more solid specifications. Well, that and some real world testing as it seems majority of these manufacturers specs are pretty off when it comes to real world usage. Given I guess.

One thing to be on the look out for are reviews from publications since its been said car makers tend to send those guys cars that have been tweaked a bit in performance and just about where ever else possible to put a review in their favor. Reason why I wait for owners and those getting vehicles from a batch that owners would.

That's pretty messed up. Is it only performance tweaks that they make ? Like a better tune or something or is it parts wise too ?
Where ever the vehicle is supposed to shine in, which overall is performance. And as you can imagine just about anywhere else some downside can be found they'll try to make changes that can go undetected. It happens.

Lots of reports out there pointing out press cars did better than large sample sizes of production versions.
