Nissan Titan Diesel MPG/Gas Mileage?

What can we expect city, highway and combined mileage to be like on the Titan Diesel?

I'm thinking highway MPG could be around the mid-20's.

RAM rejected the 5,0 Cummins V8 because the best fuel economy they could achieve was 24 mpg, the threshold was 26 (for them).

So a good place to begin assuming is the 24 mpg figure from RAM... We'll see what happens in the real world. I'm also not sure of how RAM achieved that 24 mpg...

For the RAM 1500 Diesel, I remember reading that it's highway mileage was around 28mpg, not bad for the 30-liter V6 it comes with.

I came across a source that's suggesting the new Titan Diesel should get around 24mpg highway.

Although it would be great to get more mpg's, like the RAM Diesel V6, knowing that we are getting Cummins V8 makes me feel better as Cummins engines are known to be very reliable.

Is there anything about the Titan Diesel that could make its mpg rating better than what the Ram 1500 got with the same engine? Is it lighter or something?

24 mpg isn't bad, but it also isn't going to be class leading or anything.

For sure, but Motori is a storied and reliable brand as well. They have a long history with Marine and HEAVY diesels...

I read up on how some people were able to get up to 28mpg, which is great, but then again so many things factor into the MPG number you get in the end.

I just wonder how well the Titan Diesel will do with fuel mileage that really isn't anything too special. I think that is one of the supposed benefits of the diesel engine, but the Titan isn't really going to capitalize on that potential.

well it's not all about mileage, it's something that does factor in, just one of many.
towing capacity is another one, diesels have torque.

well the only way you'll truly come out on top in the fuel econ wars is if you're a consistent tower...

If the Titan is lagging behind in fuel mileage then they will have to step it up to be a segment leader in some other area. It would be cool if they are able to create a Titan with class leading towing or something. I'm not holding my breathe though.
