When Nissan introduced the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan XD powered by Cummins last January, the truck world listened. But only now, do we finally have something to hear.
This week Nissan unveiled another video chapter in their Titan Truckumentary series which chronicles the development and teasing of the new truck which is due on sale later this year.
It’s 5.0-liter Cummins turbo-diesel V8 has been a hot topic of discussion on web forums and YouTube alike, featuring 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque.
In its half-ton class, the new 5.0 liter Cummins V8 will better its only competitor, the 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel by a wide margin. And Ford as we know doesn’t yet offer a light-duty diesel.
The new engine has a lot of high tech going on including a series sequential turbocharging system which combines a small turbocharger for low air flow and a larger one for high air flow.
The smaller turbo provides better throttle response due to its low inertia off idle and in acceleration while the the larger turbo maintains power at higher engine rpm.
The new Nissan Titan XD powered buy Cummins will come to dealers…..ugh doesn’t that sound nice? …..it’ll be here late this year.
