Without some form of electrification, meeting the ever-tightening Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations will become all but impossible.

    Nissan Titan XD: refined yet rugged

    MARICOPA, Ariz. -- Picking their way through the dusty sagebrush, two wild horses suddenly appeared by the roadside, bachelor colts by the look of them, juvenile stallions who'd probably been run off by the herd's leader once they'd reached puberty.
