Next-Generation 2016 Nissan Titan XD

Nissan has debuted the all-new Titan full-size pickup at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.  Representing the next-generation Titan lineup, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD flagship model took the stage and previewed other grade levels in the lineup which will be introduced at a later date this year.

Jumping right to the heart of the Titan, the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan will be powered by three engine choices including all-new V8, V6 and the new Cummins V8 Turbo engine which is powering the 2016 Titan XD.

The V6 is the first that Nissan offers in this class. The specs of the V6 and V8 will be available at a later date.

As for the Cummins V8 Turbo engine, it is a 5.0L engine producing 310 horsepower and powerful 555 lb.-ft. of torque, giving the 2016 Titan XD a towing capability of over 12,000 lb. and payload of over 2,000 lb.  The Cummins 5.0-L V8 Turbo Diesel engine produces about 45 percent more torque at crusing speed than similar-sized gasoline V8 engine and according to Nissan, the engine is expected to yield 20 percent better fuel economy than a gasoline powered V8 while towing full load.  With its torque and power, the engine is mated to a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission which is developed and tuned exclusively for the Titan XD.

To handle this powerful engine, the Nissan Titan XD utilizes a unique frame and chassis that got its design from Nissan commercial vehicles.  The Titan XD’s wheelbase is 151.6 inches, about 20 inches long than that of non-XD Titan models.

In contrast to the original Titan which was started out focusing on consumer innovations such as rear doors design, beside storage, etc., the all-new Titan was started out focusing on “commercial strength components” such as the radiator, rear axle and everything in between.

Equipped with new heavy-duty suspension system that consists of tuned and reinforced parts, the new Titan XD rides on three available wheel sizes – 17-inch, 18-inch or 20-inch, all come with all-weather/all-surface-traction tires.

On the styling front, the designing of the Titan XD is inspired by a theme of “powerful precision tool”, blending a “bold, commanding presence” with “a fresh, modern technical feel”.  The new design also helps improve aerodynamics over the outgoing Titan by adding a front spoiler, roof and tailgate spoilers, front tow hook hole cover, underbody covers, rear tire wind deflectors and a seal between the cab and bed.

Improvements continue into the inside with the front storage has been increased 33 percent and rear storage 28 percent over the outgoing generation Titan.  New 2nd row under-seat storage includes a locking lid for added security and the integrated fold-out flat floor. The center console can hold a computer tablet with case or a 15-inch laptop. Best of all, the new Titan is equipped with front and rear “Zero Gravity” seats that are inspired by NASA, which according to Nissan, help “maximize posture positioning for enhanced comfort during long-distance driving”.

Overall, there will be three cab configurations with five grade levels to be available later in the Nissan Titan lineup.  More information on the full lineup will be available subsequently.
