Nope. Already being made and taking orders. They are looking at doing a Turbo 4cyl model now though.

I think I heard the C7 is being puched back.

Nissan will not make a full size pickup anymore, its dead. Mind you they will have a full size truck. But it will be just a Dodge with a Nissan badge.

c6/c7 (2010+) are on the back burner because of the C.A.F.E. rules and regulations, not because of the ecomonic downturn.

They could get majorly screwed if Chrysler goes tits up.
Or they could just buy the design and plants for dirt cheap.... hmmm.

Nissan barely sells any trucks as it is...it really won't hurt anything. Nissan's making a smart move here (as the Dodge full size truck is one of Chrysler's only decent products). This will greatly reduce their exposure to the failing truck market.

Dodge needs to die. GM and Ford will live on, and Nissan should go back to something they were good at : making compact and mid-sized trucks.

But that is true about most of their upcoming products if they go into Bankruptcy....so until then, I'm not counting them as canceled vehicles in my mind.

It is funny you should say this because my old shop is supposedly in line to have some full float axles brought back inhouse. One axle rumored to be coming back was Nissan, but it might be for the mid sized truck.

(From what I hear, Toyota and Nissan are none too pleased with the quality and the delivery schedule they were getting from the non-union plant they contracted to make the axles. All my ex-coworkers are being called back to work to un-mothball the plant.)

Seriously? It seems like the 'vette is always fairly efficient for what it is...

Every Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep.

Jeep will continue on. Even if Chrysler dies somebody will take Jeep. It's their only decent brand even after Mercedes tried to destroy it by departing from it's original brand philosophy. Killing the Cherokee and moving away from solid front axle vehicles was a huge mistake. Even after all that though the brand still has value.

It would be fitting if Ford somehow ended up with Jeep. During WWII they produced a version of the Jeep so them producing Jeeps again would be historically fitting.

Hopefully they can cancel all the gas guzzlers and just make hydrogen fuel cell cars like the Honda FCX Clarity.

Then everyone can flock to Los Angeles where the hydrogen stations are.

The new Nissan trucks based on the Ram are already out there. I believe they have a few dozen made.
