This is a discussion on F150 ecoboost v nissan titan diesel within the F150 Ecoboost Chat forums, part of the F150 Ecoboost Forum category; I wondered about that. I mean "on paper" I just couldn't figure out what Nissan was thinking! That truck should have been the unicorn truck ...

That truck should have been the unicorn truck that fit right where you describe it. But those OFFICIAL numbers are head scratching.

The official numbers on paper are without a doubt part of their marketing scheme. I also read that Nissan wasn’t trying to step on the toes of the big 3 and get dragged into the heavy duty war. With the way the suspension and drive train is setup, there’s no doubt in my mind the Titan XD is more of a HD truck vs a half ton. Just drive one, you’ll feel it instantly. It drives just like a HD and handles like one.
I would say the same thing about an F250 Powerstroke too. The diesel adds a stupid amount of weight and the payload suffers.
If you are suggesting to overload the truck because its overbuilt, well, go for it. I don't think anyone else here is gunna suggest doing that.

I understand the spec ratings on paper. But in reality, I’m not seeing this truck react to weight like a truck with a 1700 pound payload should.
I’m not suggesting anyone do anything. I’m just pointing out the facts.
But hell, on the farm, everything gets overloaded around here. Can’t be scared.
