Red face Who's seen the most recent Nissan Titan commercial?

Wow so watchin speed this morning and Nissan had a commercial for the Titan i think i could be wrong though but anways they were driving that truck through the mud and everything trying to make the truck look awesome right, i couldnt help but notice the lower bumper was banging up against the upper bumper ... i dont really think they noticed that before they put that commercial on the air...it makes the truck look reallly cheap and weak and that the truck just might fall apart if you decided to go mudding with it. Anyone else notice this? if you havent watch closely it's the commercial that has Blacksabbath playing i think..

There's only about 3/4 of an inch separating the bumper from the grille surround. The commercial shows the bumper hitting the lower "chrome" grille bar.

There is no upper bumper.

How many posts have you seen here about the 2007 Tundra? Hundreds. When the Titan came out three years ago, there was the same hoopla regarding it.

As a retired Ford employee, I like to see what the competition is doing. I went to Enterprise and rented one for a day. I will do the same thing with the 2007 Tundra. I've also driven the Ram and Chevrolet, which was the worst truck of all the 1/2 ton pickups, IMO.

Sound reasonable to you?

I think was ND is getting at is that he doesn't just compare his truck to others by watching the commercial. He goes out, gets ahold of one and takes it for a drive.

Personally I've thought the Titan, since it came out, was pretty cheesy.
