New 2016 Nissan Titan to Start Just Over $40,000

The top-line Titan XD Platinum Series.

The new 2016 Nissan Titan XD will debut at a starting price of $40,290, the maker announced this afternoon, with a fully loaded Platinum Reserve model pushing the sticker price up to $62,710.

Nissan is betting big on the launch of the new Titan XD. It marks the first remake of the Japanese automaker’s full-size pickup in a decade, and brings with it Nissan’s first U.S. diesel powertrain. The XD is the heavier-duty version of the Titan, with a standard ¾-ton truck set to follow next year.

Keep on Truckin'!

“Titan XD represents a unique proposition in the marketplace,” said Fred Diaz, Nissan’s head of sales and marketing in the U.S., “as the truck stands at what we feel is the perfect midpoint in terms of size, price and capability between ½ ton and ¾ ton trucks, thus meeting a previously unmet customer need.”


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.

Auto Show Updates!

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.
