Nissan Motor Corp. will unveil a new version of the Titan full-size pickup next month at the North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show. Nissan and Cummins Inc. have confirmed that the new Titan could be availed with a Cummins-built 5.0-liter turbodiesel V-8 – providing at least 300 hp and 500 pounds-feet of torque -- as an option.
As shown by spy photos, the second-generation Titan seems to feature larger headlights located on the lower part of the front fenders; a big-rig style and a larger grille.
In July, Automotive News reported that the new Titan will be available in three cab configurations -- crew, extended and, a regular cab.
Earlier this year, Fred Diaz was recruited by Nissan as its senior vice president for sales, marketing and operations. He told Automotive News in February that requested some changes to the next-generation Titan, adding that he is confident Nissan full-size pickup will be competitive with domestic models.
Nissan will commence sales of the 2016 Titan late 2015, a time when Ford is posting a full-year of sales for its new F-150.
