The Titan XD is designed to fit between the light-duty and heavy-duty picks from Ford, GM, and Ram.
In just the past two years, the four best pickups in the segment have all been re-engineered totally, or significantly.
The Ford F-150 is a technical triumph, with its new aluminum body shaving more than 500 pounds off its curb weight.
The stylish Ram 1500 may have the best ride, with its available air springs, added to suave Longhorn trim, and tractor-trailer styling.
The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra were new for 2014, and sport an excellent base V-6, an even better V-8, and much improved interior styling and space, though the Chevy looks plain, and back-seat comfort is less impressive.
The Toyota Tundra has also been redone, but it's failed to make a dent in the others' sales; styling is bland, and tow and payload ratings are lower, though the powertrains are very smooth.
