Nissan has reaffirmed their commitment to the full-size truck segment by announcing plans to launch an all-new Titan.

2013 is shaping up to become the year of the full-size pickup, but we haven't heard much about the Nissan Titan - until now.

In a recent press release, Nissan reaffirmed their commitment to the segment by announcing plans to field an all-new model to battle the Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra.

Details are limited but Pierre Loing, Nissan's vice president of Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, said "Our truck teams in Michigan, Arizona, Tennessee and Mississippi are hard at work on a next generation full-size truck line that will expand Titan's appeal to a broader spectrum of truck buyers, including the all-important skilled trades-buyers. Our new truck will be filled with Nissan innovation and expertise without compromise."

Nissan declined to release a timetable for "competitive reasons" which likely means the model is at least a year or two off.

In related news, Nissan continues to express "optimism for the compact truck segment." The company avoided discussing the next-generation Frontier but hinted there is room for "growth and success."
