Nissan announced it does not want to be left behind in the sales battle among full size pickup trucks. This morning, it took the wraps off the 2016 Titan XD.
It is said to be an all new design available with a Cummins 5.0 V8 Turbo Diesel rated at 310 horsepower with a hefty 555 lb-ft of torque. Maximum towing capacity is set at more than 12,000 pounds when properly equipped. It will also offer an integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame.
The Titan will be sort of an All-American with assembly in Mississippi with engines from Tennessee and Indiana. It is projected to go on sale nationwide late this year.
Inside, there will be the usual wide range of trim options with Zero Gravity seats and a large center console “designed to serve as a mobile workstation.” Nissan said more details will be announced at a future date.
