One of these Nissan Titan utes passed us today on the Highway 1 heading through the mid north of SA, saw the Cummins badge and the rest of it looked awesome. Not as big looking as the converted F250's, but surely would attract the Nissan Navara mob. Got to be ahead of the pack if the price is right. Of course it could have been a conversion job but Cars Guide suggested factory versions may already be here in Australia.

Was there a on-road-cost mentioned?

The on road cost for the Ram 1500 Express model I think is in the low $80,000 with the more upmarket Laramie being around $115,000 (read leather seats etc)
My neighbor went from a 200 series cruiser to one, not sure which model but he is very happy with it.

Colcam - Unfortunately, the Nissan Titan XD seems to manage to keep the Nissan brand rating much lower than it should be.

Even the V8 Cummins has some serious engineering flaws, I guess it's built for a low price to meet Nissan's demands.

It really beggars belief that after so many decades of vehicle building experience, so many manufacturers still fail to get basic reliability and decent build quality, as a priority.

Car & Driver - Nissan Titan XD long-term review - an "F" says the reviewers

I am also amazed that the latest 2019 dual cabs still have drum brakes where-as my 2012 Prado has rear disc brakes, isn't it about time they caught up with today's technology.

wanderer : funny thing that , you would think disc would be a lot easier & cheaper to put on than drums ?? maybe its to do with something else ie load or tooling etc ?

So looks are deceiving then, I seriously looked at the Silverado a few years ago and would have loved to own one. Didn't like the F-series, but the seriously big money for a converted Chev import was just beyond us. Can't we ever expect something better for Australia to do the bigger job? With larger caravans and weight limits, something like this and below the Toyota price, should be a goer. I did notice the review was a year or so ago and very comprehensive. Might they have got it right for Australia or is that too much to expect? Looks like the Iveco and Isuzu still have nothing to fear.
Interesting that there was a mention of smaller vehicles having better load and towing capacity, many people think that our range of 4x4's have been over-rated for towing 3-3.5 tonne just to meet the market expectations. Just thought that at last there might be a better choice. :-(

I wouldn't trust my ex-Pajero Sport 4 cyl diesel to tow 3 tonne 100 kgs as stated on my tow bar. I could just imagine the sway once it started, both of us, upside down

I'd rather get chopped a 200 series twincab at that price.
