I didn't see a price.
It's going to be a nice TV but the price isn't posted. Diesels as a rule are more expensive in Canada and so is fuel and diesel mechanics. Sometimes the difference in vehicle price between gas and diesel can be close to 11 grand (as in the Ecodiesel). It would take a lot of fuel savings to even that out. I suppose the bean counters will factor in the truck cost difference against the fuel savings and come out with a pro or con.
That said, this truck may not even be available in Canada.

If it doubles my current mpg it maybe worth it.

Gm had been toying around with prootype " baby duramax" for a few years, sadly nothing has come to be as of yet, maybe a competitor coming out with something will kick start the market.

Something we may want to consider is that our vehicles are not part of this equation.
The two Nissan Titans are. The difference in price between the two vehicles, gas vs. diesel, and the MPG saved is the question. Can the fuel savings be recouped over our term with the Nissan Titan?
Judging by Canadian lease terms, the average motorist changes vehicles every four years or so.

Hi: All... I don't know if we're above or below average but I buy cars and trucks with a ten year plan in mind. That means a new car for my wife in 2015...or an electric bike!!! Alf

Alf, I think you fall into the 'or so' category.

Prior to retiring, my rule was a new vehicle every 100,000 miles or 10 years, which ever came first. Since my 2010 RAV4 has 66,000 miles on it, I may have to revisit that idea!
