(Photos by Phil Ruth) The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is the first look at Nissan’s all new full-size pickup. It’s the first time either the Nissan or the Toyota will be available with a diesel engine, and with Dodge’s decision to go with its own captive FCA-sourced diesel, Cummins steps in to power the truck with 555 lb-ft of torque.
And hey, is this the first truck trim ever that’s named for an emoticon?
What Does Nissan Say?
“The new TITAN will deliver toughness, capability and quality,” added Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn. “In addition to a range of cab configurations, the TITAN lineup will ultimately encompass multiple powertrain choices. These include an all-new workhorse gasoline V8, as well as our first V6 offering in this class.”
When Does It Go On Sale?
The 2016 Nissan Titan goes on sale later in the 2015 calendar year.
