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.
