I've owned my Dodge for a grand total of 18 days, but this isnt sitting right with me. I dont like the idea of it. I like the diversity, the bragging rights...etc. If Nissan cant build a decent truck themselves then they need to gtf out of the business of building trucks.

This idea gets a big BOO!

I think it's a bad idea for Dodge. The hemi is the main reason I bought it, if I could have found it in other trucks I'm not so sure I would own a Dodge right now.

I like the idea b/c being a dodge/chrysler llc fan the thing that has always held emback has been non muscle cars and nissan appears to make a decent 1 so a ram based titan for a rebadge altima or versa is a good deal but just don't let em get the hemi that's one of the things that gives chrysler fans bragging right don't get me wrong if it was still the 318 and 360 id still love dodge for its quality and looks but the hemi gives me crap talking rights lol

I dont like Japanese vehicles. I think this is BS that Dodge is giving up their historical name to Nissan. The hemi has been around longer than Nissan. I think they should have helped them but not given them rights to their bred and butter.

I would like to see no more Japanese trucks to be honest haha

Now I guess it will be BYE BYE to the Ram since everyone is so cheap now a days they will go with the Titan over Ram. Me personally I will never own a Japanese vehicle I rather walk, but everyone else thinks they are better. To be honest they are all fuel efficient because they make the cars lighter than american ones, and they also put out less power. Now Chevy and Ford have just as many fuel efficient cars as all the other ricers

I say we do what should have been done long ago, get rid of all asian made cars, trucks, and bikes. We live in america, we should be proud to be american's, we should be proud of americanproducts, I am. I will never lower my self to buy one of those piles of c__p for any price or reason. I would rather have a truck that gets 10 miles to the gallon but has power over any of those piles of garbage! A real american would never buy a car from a company that is in a country that killed thousands of american's remeber Pearl Harbor.

Coming from a servicemember who has an Acura parked next to the dodge in the driveway, we are a free country! Buy what you want!

I'm wondering why Nisan is doing this personally. I had a 2008 Titan and the drivetrain is top notch. I would still have it if I had not got a base model. Even pulling my tractor that thing would fly.
Unfortunately Nissan can't get their axles figured out. Just slap a D60 in the thing and be done with it.

Please don't get me wrong, if you live in America you can buy any truck or car you want. I look at it like this I want the usa to prosper and to do so we as American's need to buy and support america, if i lived in japan I would buy japanese products to support japan. I live in america so I support america. I have worked on a lot of cars and trucks my self and would never buy a pile of crap made in asia or for the matter a vehicle built in america but owned by an asian company. the goverment sells toyota and nissan and the such property at less than 1/2 price so they will move there assembly plants here, there still asian made, just assembled in america. Now if an american auto company want the same land they would have to pay full price. that is just wrong!!! Toyota close's a plant in Calif. because Chevy bought stock in it, then toyota opens a new plant in tennesse or somewhere in that area. now when they close the plant they took all the employees retirerment with them and the employees are left with nothing until the federal govt. pays them all there retirement in full. Them when toyota opens the new plant hirs all the employees back. are tax dollares bailed out toyota so those a holes could do this. were is the justice in all that. toyota, nissan and all other asian countries can keep there crap. but that is just my feeling's.
