2016 Nissan Titan set for Detroit debut
The reveal of the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan full-size pickup will take place next month at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Other than saying that the truck has been designed in California, engineered in Michigan and tested in Arizona, Nissan offered few details on its totally redrawn workhorse beyond the fact that it will be assembled in Mississippi and offer both gasoline and turbodiesel V8 engines.
The latter, a new and much-needed addition to the Titan lineup, is a Cummins 5.0-liter oil burner that should make about 300 horsepower and crank out around roughly 550 lb-ft of torque, although Nissan has yet to confirm either figure. Back in August 2013, Fred Diaz, divisional vice president of Nissan Sales & Marketing, told KBB the firm intends to expand the reach of the new Titan by positioning it as a 1/2-ton pickup that offers the capability of a 3/4-ton model.
"We have done our homework on the next-generation Titan," Diaz said. "Truck owners told us there's a demand for the performance and torque of a diesel in a capable truck that doesn't require the jump up to a heavy-duty commercial pickup." It won't be long before we'll all know just how close Nissan has come to hitting that mark.
