This is it folks, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD made its word debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and it is ready to take on the full-size pickup battlefield. According to the official press release, the 2016 Titan XD is the first of the new generation of Nissan Titan models and promises to create a new segment of the American market.
Set to go on sale in late 2015, the Titan XD is powered by a new Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine that generates 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque. Titan XD is capable to offer an available maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds, when properly equipped of course.
Some of the additional features present on the 2016 Titan XD include the RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation, Blind Spot Warning and a Front and Rear Sonar System.
Unfortunately, there aren’t too many details available, but according to Nissan the 2016 Titan XD Crew Cab is the first of the three-cab configurations, two frame sizes, three powertrain offerings and five grade levels that will be available later in the Titan lineup.
