Look around: just about all of the latest full-size pickups proliferating on America's roads have descriptions like "larger in every dimension." They're boasting they can do more, but they're also taller to see over and harder to maneuver in the country's many saturated, dense driving environments. What happened to the smaller but often surprisingly useful trucks that could thread the needle just as well in urban concrete as off the pavement?
That's a question that particularly applies for tradesmen and fleets in cities and surrounding metro regions relying on the do-all pickup truck. It's one the Japanese automakers have long been good at answering, with offerings like Toyota's Tacoma logging more than 20 years of sales in the United States. General Motors has its Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, and Ford is about to leap back into the class with its reincarnated Ranger.
But the smaller, more compact pickup has perhaps had its most consistent place over the years at Nissan, which began rolling them off assembly lines in the early 1930s under its former name Datsun. And Nissan's current midsize Frontier, which also has been sold on these shores for more than two decades, offers some very full-size-like prowess and utility — particularly in the last dozen years or so, courtesy of its available (and large for the segment) 24-valve 4.0L V6.

Most readers of Government Fleet are seasoned professionals pursuing careers either in public fleet management or in corporate roles in support of public sector fleets. For a moment, however, put aside your current career history and aspirations and try to remember when you were a younger person, weighing career options and considering just what path to take.
The public fleet industry is on the threshold of a truly cosmic shift, and it’s quite possible that young people today are looking at our industry and questioning those options. We should, as those young people may be doing, consider what this shift will mean when it occurs.
The shift will be toward a predominance of electromotive powertrain technology and away from the internal combustion engine (ICE). Is it true that the demise of the ICE is greatly overstated, or, should we, like those young people still contemplating their career paths, be reading the tea leaves and presume they portend a very different future for us?

Nissan's Titan pickup truck is the new kid at school — picked on, not given any respect, overlooked when it comes time to choose teams for sports. But that's OK; Nissan seems to relish being the underdog of the pickup class as it gives the automaker freedom to do things a little out of the box. The latest version of the Mississippi-built Titan has been out for a couple of years now, and Titans are still a rare sight in most parts of the country. But that doesn't bother the Nissan crew; they're soldiering along with a truck that they're eager to prove is as capable as domestic-brand pickups.
With that in mind, I found myself in the parking lot of the Hilton at McGhee Tyson Airport staring at a 2018 Titan half-ton and Titan XD pickups as journalists converged upon Knoxville, Tenn., for the first part of Nissan's Great Titan Meat Up. The Meat Up was the latest in a series of special events designed to showcase the Titan in the wild. Meat Up weekend kicked off with a day off-roading in the Smoky Mountains followed by a smoked meat cooking competition in Pigeon Forge.
A Mix of Off-Road Titans
The off-road event took us into the hills of Windrock Park, one of the largest off-road parks in the country encompassing more than 72,000 acres laced with more than 300 miles of off-highway trails that accommodate everything from side-by-sides to dirt bikes to full-size 4x4 trucks like the Titans. Our fleet was a mix of Titan half tons with the 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter Endurance V-8 and Titan XDs — Nissan's 'tweener pickup that's not quite a half ton, not quite a heavy duty — powered by a 310-hp, turbo-diesel 5.0-liter Cummins V-8. All trucks were the Pro-4X off-road trim, with higher ride heights, all-terrain tires, Bilstein shocks, an electronic locking rear differential and some additional underbody skid-plate protection that came in handy on the trails.

Popular Nissan NV Cargo continues to add value to versatility with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo commercial van is the "2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Award" winner in the van category. The Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards represent the website's ongoing effort to highlight vehicle value for shoppers beyond the initial purchase price. The awards recognize the brands and models with the highest projected residual value after five years.
"Cost of ownership and operation is a critical factor in the commercial van segment, and the Nissan NV Cargo – with its rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup – is designed as a true workhorse for commercial use2," said Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "The Edmunds award for highest projected 5-year residual value is a great third party confirmation of the NV Cargo's high quality and durability."
The NV Cargo, along with the 4-row/12-passenger NV Passenger and NV200 compact van, is sold through select Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide. All NV models come with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty1 – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. See dealer for limited warranty details.
"Buying a new car is a huge financial decision, and our 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to help shoppers discover the vehicles that can help them get the most out of their investment," said Avi Steinlauf, Edmunds' CEO. "This year's winners underscore a commitment to quality and reliability, and are good bets to hold their value over the course of ownership."
About the 2018 Nissan NV Cargo
The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo van provides exceptional utility thanks to a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheelwell housings and nearly vertical sidewalls – room enough to fit two 40x48-inch pallets, 10-foot piping or 4x8-foot drywall sheets. Along with maximizing cargo space, the sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification. The Nissan NV Cargo provides rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup, including an available High Roof with Body-on-Frame construction – the only van in the segment3 to offer this, providing most users the ability to walk, stand and work in the cargo area.
For the 2018 model year, all NV Cargo grades come equipped with standard RearView Monitor, 5.0-inch color display audio (5.8-inch standard on SL grade), Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant and USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices. In addition, the previous Power Package option content – power windows with driver's side one-touch down, power door locks with central locking, and Remote Keyless Entry – is now standard on S grade.
The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo is offered in three well-equipped models – the V6-equipped NV1500; the NV2500 HD, which is offered with V6 and V8 engines; and the NV3500 HD with a standard V8 engine. All three models are available with the Standard Roof, while the High Roof body is offered in the NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD models only.
The Nissan NV Cargo is assembled by Nissan North America in Canton, Mississippi. It is available through a select network of authorized Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide. For more information, please go to nissancommercialvehicles.com.
