Defeating the Purpose

Doesn’t the 305-hp Nissan Titan kind of defeat the purpose of owning a Japanese vehicle? The two primary reasons for buying a Japanese car, in my opinion, are fuel economy and reliability, two areas in which American autos are lacking. The four-wheel drive, 32-valve V8 Titan attains 14 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The EPA formula is notoriously inaccurate, also, resulting in more generous fuel mileage numbers than vehicles will actually achieve. I guess the Titan is for those Americans who want the reliability of a Japanese auto, but the size, power, and efficiency of a tank.
