2016 Nissan Titan Spy PhotoNissan will finally be replacing full-size Titan pickup with a new model next year after more than a decade of selling the Titan. Nissan Titan was introduced in 2004. It is a full-size pickup truck produced for the North American drivers. 2016 Nissan Titan is expected to make its debut at the Detroit International Auto Show in January 2015. The two most important new features expected with the upcoming redesign include a new body style and a brand new Cummins diesel engine. the Titan was scheduled to be replaced with a rebadged version of the Ram 1500, but that deal fell through in the wake of Chrysler’s bankruptcy. Nissan was then forced to kick-start Titan development on its own, a process that naturally took a few years.

2016 Nissan Titan Concept

2016 Nisaan Titan will not be a full redesign in the typical sense, will likely use an upgraded version of its existing platform. Nissan will need to extract weight from the new truck to help increase fuel economy. That could include adjusting frame thickness, using lighter body panels, or depending on ambition spreading extensive aluminum throughout the platform. Full-size pickups have adopted extremely bluff, vertical front ends in the past few years, and the Titan joins the flat-brow party in force. The outgoing Titan’s swept-back face is replaced by one with a towering mesh grille, a substantial chin spoiler reaching nearly to the ground, and a pair of rectangular headlights. Nissan did keep the Titan’s steeply raked windshield and rounded roof shapes intact. This prototype is a crew-cab model, but we expect that Nissan will also offer an extended-cab version. To succeed, the new 2016 Nissan Titan will need to offer competitive features and options. A light-duty diesel engine is one way to stand out in the segment, along with features like Nissan’s 360-degree around-view monitor.

2016 Nissan Titan Powertrain

Under the hood, the 2016 Nisan Titan only offers a 5.6-liter V8 and, at 15 mpg combined, a not particularly fuel-efficient one. Nissan officials have not confirmed a V6. Ford, for example, offers the F-150 with two V6 options. Together they comprise more than half of F-150 sales. The Titan will also offer a 5.0-liter diesel V8 supplied by engine manufacturer Cummins, best known for the long service life and good fuel economy of its engines in Ram heavy-duty trucks. Nissan hasn’t disclosed power figures yet, but early estimates suggest more than 300 horsepower and around 550 pound-feet of torque.

2016 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price

2016 Nissan Titan should debut at the Detroit auto show next year. Nissan offers a V-6 and a regular cab, the base price could drop down to the $25 levels of trucks from the Detroit Three. Nissan currently asks $30,455 for its most basic Titan.
