2016 Nissan Titan Release Date, Diesel, Price, Specs – Looks like that we’ll have 2016 Nissan Titan in the market soon! Given the devotion of U.S truck buyers, the Detroit based automakers could most probably raise a storm through a simple online request. Whilst dependent on the truck manufacturer, up to 40% of truck users will at one point return to purchase a new truck from their most favorite brand with the Chevy Silverado amassing the wildest backing.
Nissan and Toyota, as much as they have tried, haven’t managed to break the traditional bond. Nissan is anticipated to make an attempt by unleashing the all-new 2016 Titan. It will most likely refresh its Titan through making an overhaul and adding some unique features.
Prominent among the changes will be a new V8 and a V6 Diesel option. For starters, the existing Titan in the market today comes fitted with a 5.6L V8 and is rated at 15 miles per gallon when combined, it is evidently not fuel savvy.
The upcoming new model will first feature with the long-wheelbase XD Crew Cab model, it will be equipped with a V8 engine and will most certainly sport a new look. It is rumored that the XD is aimed at splitting the difference in terms of towing capacity, ride comfort and fuel economy made available by the top of the range light-duty/heavy-duty pickups. It is expected that a non-XD version should make a debut few months after the launch of the XD in the market.

Exterior and Interior Review – Nissan Titan 2016
The upcoming XD model will make use of an invigorated version of the present Titan. Carryovers will include the wishbone feature that is extensively used in Nissan’s commercial vans and trucks line-up, with a solid aft axle that is fortified by the flabbergasted aft dampers and leafy springs.
Also available as a factory option will be the ‘fifth-wheel’ trailer hitch on the XD models. Unfortunately, no details about the XD Pro 4x model has been released as yet, though we should look forward to light refreshments of the existing chassis and frame, and more detailed changes to the V8.
The new Nissan Titan 2016 will be availed in two frame configurations, five trim variants, three cab configurations (King, Crew and Standard) and three bed lengths. However, for non-XD models they will be 20” shorter in the wheelbase configuration than the Titan under review.
Some of the feature pros worth expecting will include; adjustable locking in-bed storage boxes and LED headlights and bed lighting.
Interior wise, the new Titan will come with an exceptional heated seats, perforated front seats, 7” display for entertainment and navigation, and leather upholstery. Moreover, the Titan will come with a host of safety features which will include Blind Spot warning, a 360-degree view camera, lane assist, crash notification, front and rear sensors, and hill descent/ascent control.
There will be some equipment which will assist in handling the trailer, but the details haven’t been availed yet.
Price & Release Date – 2016 Nissan Titan
The new Nissan Titan should most probably arrive at dealers before the fall of this year especially for the XD model. Cummins price details have not been diverged as yet, but should fall between the heavy-duty variants of rivals such as Ford F-series and Chevrolet Silverado, and the current Nissan Titan. Other additions include the GMC Sierra 1500 and Dodge 1500 trucks.
Nissan is still hopeful there exists some room for its Titan. However, buyers will be left with the ultimate choice of whether the Titan will survive the immense competition it is poised to encounter.
Engine – 2016 Nissan Titan XD Specs
Diesel power will downright prove imperative to the 2nd generation Titan which has been evidenced by the fact that Nissan will unleash the 5.0L Cummins V8 in the heavy-duty XD version before any other powertrain.
According to Nissan’s Product Planning Manager – Peter Luttenbacher, “the Cummins powertrain really brings a lot to us whether you are towing or hauling, the diesel goodness is evidenced by that consistent pull all the way up the hill. It’s that power on tap all the time. It’s that feeling you have when you are able to pull from any speed without a downshift.
The 5.0L Indiana built engine in question has the muscle to yield about 310 hp and an impressive 555 pounds of torque. With this amazing power output, the Cummins V8 is a significant leap from the present 3L turbodiesel V6 in the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which is the only other half-ton offering diesel power.
