Build and price your own unit, bare bones (maybe spring for an AM radio for the wetbacks), 2wd, white.
Last I looked, the Titan required premium.
Remember that depreciation on a new vehicle will cost you far more than any 2-4 cents/litre on fuel ever will.
Did a check on that. 87 is fine.
When I bought my car in 2004 Premium was recommended by Nissan for damned near all their vehicles. They list 87 octane as a minimum requirement, but they put the big letters about premium being what you will get the best performance with.
Completely agree about vehicle depreciation. Striking the new Titan today. Saw the blackbook price on my car and realized I wouldn't come close to getting that on a trade-in and can't do it. Found a good deal on a 2011 Titan though, it's a bit further away but the price is $15K less and it's got LOW kilometers. Just waiting to get a vehicle history report on it to make sure it isn't a crash and walk away job that the dealership fixed up and I'll be driving away with a Lemon.
