Nissan Titan To Be Discontinued In Canada: Report

It’s been almost a year since a refreshed Nissan Titan and Titan XD were revealed for the 2020 model year. Nissan’s half-ton and almost three-quarter-ton trucks are among the largest vehicles in the series. the automaker’s lineup in North America, but it looks like these massive carriers will no longer be sold in Canada for the 2021 model year.

“The Nissan Titan pickup will not be sold in Canada beyond the 2021 model year,” said Jennifer McCarthy, director of product communications for Nissan Canada, in an email to The truth about cars.

McCarthy added that Nissan Canada will focus on crossovers and sedans, particularly the all-new Rogue and Versa, which will hit Canadian showrooms later this year. The recently unveiled all-new Ariya electric crossover is also part of the plan, along with the smaller Frontier midsize pickup. Ariya and Frontier will reach Canada next year.

As expected, the culprit behind this move is declining sales of the Titan family – not only in Canada, but also in the United States, Detroit Big Three continues to dominate the full-size truck segment, and that does a disservice to Nissan. In fact, sales of the Titan were down almost 50% in 2019 compared to the previous year. The first half of 2020 saw no improvement.

Speaking of the United States, Kevin Raftery, Nissan North America communications specialist in charge of SUVs, trucks and utility vehicles, confirmed The truth about cars that the Titan will continue to be sold in the United States beyond the 2021 model year.

That’s a relief – if you’re reading this from Canada and are interested in buying a Titan next year, you might want to do some research now on how to import cars to Canada. There are plenty of resources out there, including what you can expect in terms of taxes.
