Everyone has inspiration. Someone who went before them and showed them how to strive for something and how to get there. Those who go before us lay the groundwork for others to follow in their footsteps. Kids emulate parents, siblings, coaches, astronauts, firefighters and other inspirational figures. Nissan recognizes those truck manufacturers that laid the path for the Titan XD. The company thanks Ford, Chevy and Dodge, who have been making trucks for decades and laid the groundwork for successful truck manufacturing. It is because of their work that Nissan can see the way forward.
