Nissan to Offer 390-HP Gas V-8 Option for New Titan

Gas engine alternative to big turbodiesel.

by on Dec.16, 2015

The 2016 Nissan Titan will be offered in a variety of configurations - and with two engine options.

Nissan will now offer a pair of powertrain options for its completely redesign Titan and new Titan XD pickups.

Nissan will officially launch the 2016 Titan next week, marking the end of a nearly decade-long run for the original truck. It will initially come to market with a big Cummins turbodiesel. But come spring, the Japanese maker will also make available a new, 390-horsepower V-8 that it will build in-house at an engine plant in Decherd, Tennessee.

“With this new engine, Nissan Titan XD customers will have the opportunity to make the choice that is best for their towing and hauling needs,” said Rich Miller, the Titan chief product specialist.


Nissan Turns to Cummins, Feds to Help Develop Diesel for Titan Pickup

Could debut with all new version of Japanese truck.

The next-generation Nissan Titan may be getting a much-needed diesel option.

Cummins is developing a high-efficiency inline-four-cylinder diesel engine with money from the U.S. Department of Energy and in partnership with Nissan for demonstration in the Titan light-duty pickup truck.

The project, announced at the DOE’s 2011 Merit Review in Washington, D.C., could mean the next-generation of the Nissan Titan will come to market with a decidedly higher-mileage oil-burner.  That, in turn, might finally help get the truck out of the full-size sales cellar.

Most half-ton truck makers are betting on small-displacement direct-injection gasoline engines to meet future fuel economy regulations, but Cummins expects its small displacement oil burner to get 40 percent better fuel economy over current light-duty V-8 truck engines. The Cummins average fuel economy target for this new diesel engine is 28 mpg while meeting tough U.S. Tier 2 Bin 2 emissions limits, according to the presentation.
