Nissan planning new engine variations for its next-generation Titan pickup

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Ever since Nissan's plan to jointly develop the next-generation full-sized Titan pickup with Chrysler off the Dodge Ram collapsed last year, Nissan's engineers and designers had been hard at work.

At the recent New York Auto Show, Larry Dominique, Nissan North America's vice president for product planning and the leader of the project to create the original Titan, said that the plan had been to launch the product in 2011.

However, since Nissan has been left on its own to accomplish the project, then it is bound to take longer.

In fact, it has yet to schedule a launch date. Dominique added that the company is doing what it can to speed up the development but that for now, it is unable to state what those dates are. Dominique also declined to provide details about the homegrown Titan.

From what we know about the initial plan that was shelved, they wanted to add engine variations for the Titan.

The Ram is offered in several powertrains, including a diesel engine. Meanwhile, Nissan's current Titan has only one engine to offer -- a 5.6-liter V-8.

Dominique said that the company has not yet finalized the engine options for the vehicle. In particular, he said that they're considering downsized powertrains, an enhanced V-8, and diesel powertrains. [via autonews - sub. required]
