In addition to the 5.0-liter Cummins diesel V8, Nissan will offer the 2016 Titan with a gas-fed, naturally aspirated, 5.6-liter V8. It comes with a seven-speed automatic and downshift rev matching, too.
2016 Nissan Titan
The latest installment in Nissan's video development series about the next-gen Titan doesn't provide many new hard details about the truck. However, it does drop a few hints about the pickup's Cummins diesel V8, and also provides some the best looks yet at the new model's styling, even if it is covered in camouflage. The debut is less than a week away at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
The Nissan Titan has grown long in the tooth over its decade on the market, especially against major competitors on the truck scene like the latest Ford F-150. Not for long, though, because the next-generation Titan is expected to debut at the upcoming auto show in Detroit in January.
The Titan has continued to sit in a corner of Nissan's front yard, taken out on occasion but largely unloved, the same way you see a project truck in a neighbor's driveway that makes you wonder, "Are they ever going to do anything with that?" The fullsize pickup made the news about six months ago when reports surfaced that the next generation would offer a Cummins diesel engine that had originally been meant for Ram, then it returned to the shadows.
