With all the news about the Toyota Tundra we thought we'd check in with the folks at Nissan to see what their strategy is with the Titan full size truck.

Look for some big announcements at next month's Chicago Auto Show. Following Infiniti's announcement here in Detroit about a brand new interior for the QX56 full size SUV, we're also expecting an announcement and preview of a significant upgrade to the Titan's interior for 2008 and exterior enhancements to keep it fresh in the market.

Nissan also continues to study the heavy duty pickup segment. No announcement yet that entry is imminent, but the Nissan spokesperson said they continue to study the market and remain very interested. Nissan has just created a global Lightweight Commercial Vehicle (LCV) group and a heavy duty Titan would fall under the LCV domain. In the meantime, expect Nissan to look at "adjacent segments" in the current Titan's 1/2-ton slot.
