Another year is approaching and, on its impending arrival, Nissan released new figures for its current lineup of pickups and sport utility vehicles.

But before we douse you with the bloated figures that make up anything with optional four-wheel drive, a note about the Versa. Nissan's fuel-miser will get an additional $100 stuck onto its sticker price, due to, well, we don't know why, just because. The 1.8-liter, six-speed equipped "S" model will come in at $12,550, with an automatic tranny setting you back an additional $800. The SL model with a stick comes in at $13,350, while the automatic will have an MSRP of $14,550. Add a CVT to the mix and tack on another grand.

Now, onto the big boys.

The Armada comes equipped with a standard V8, which it desperately needs in order to haul around eight (supposedly, normal-sized) occupants, boat, trailer, camper or any combination thereof. Now equipped with the option to suck down E85, all models can have the "FFV" label affixed to their bumper at no additional cost.

Models and Prices:
  • SE 4x2 = $34,950
  • LE 4x2 = $40,250
  • SE 4x4 = $37,750
  • LE 4x4 = $43,050

The Titan houses a 5.6-liter V8 (which we've dreamed of shoving into a 350Z) and comes in both King-cab and Crew-cab models.

Models and Prices:
  • King Cab 4x2 = $23,700
  • King Cab LE 4x4 = $33,700
  • Crew Cab 4x2 = $26,550
  • Crew Cab LE 4x4 = $36,200

Pricing for the Frontier, Murano, Pathfinder and Xterra can be found if you follow the 'read' link below.

      such silly consumers!!
      destination charges are not profit. The unions are screwing you again in their charges for trucking vehicles

      These aren't full lists. The Titan list doesn't have most trims.

      I'll get these into my database by tomorrow assuming full info is out there. Well, not the pickups. I don't currently do pickups--it would be more work to enter a single pickup than everything Honda and Acura sell. And to date I've had only one request to add them, so I'm not seeing a demand.

      In general, looks like very few changes and minor price increases:

      Murano up $150

      Pathfinder up $200 to $300

      Xterra unchanged, at least the base trim

      On the Versa increase, Nissan along with a few others likes to have 3-4 small price increases through the model year rather than one or two larger increases.

      Ford sometimes even has $15-25 invoice, leaving the sticker unchanged. Stack a number of these together, and its obvious that they're slowly squeezing their dealers. No one's going to complain about a $20 increase, right?

      A related increase is the destination charge bump, which also tends to be in the $15-25 range. The unique thing about destination charges is that 100% goes to the manufacturer. Again, squeezing dealer margins.

      My extended take on these strategies:

      I am excited about the Xterra. Sadly though destination and handling charges for these lineup had been increased by $10 or $45.

      10k for 4-wheel drive, strange indeed. and while you were dreaming of shoving that 5.8 into the 350Z, were you also dreaming of nissan actually MAKING a 5.8L? it's a 5.6L. and the prices are all ranges from the base to the top trim, the way you wrote it is quite misleading

      ku - thanks for the correction. Just the idea of shoehorning a V8 into the 'Z' makes my typing go awry.
      The designations of LE, SE, etc. are there to allow readers to figure what additional features each model has. We do news, not a buyers guide. Thankfully, other readers didn't find it 'misleading.'
