The new 2016 Nissan Titan will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) next January in Detroit.

In addition to the 5.0-liter Cummins V-8 engine option, the next generation Titan will be offered in a broader range of model packaging options to include more base-level packaging for work truck buyers and contractors, as well as specific packaging for the diesel option with the Cummins engine that are meant to appeal to the expected buyer for that option.

I read a press release (I believe it was Nissan's ) and in my opinion it was in essence a less than positive . Referred to the Cummins option as a more "cost effective" or words to that effect option vs other pick up diesel options that were more geared toward commercial operations. Hmnn-that says "throw away motor" to me. ie-"want a diesel with guts?- get a PS, Duramax or Dodge 6.7! If you don't need longevity, we have the option for you"!

Press Release / August 20, 2013

Nissan to Equip Next-Generation Titan Pickup with New Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine

At the kickoff of Nissan 360, Nissan announced it will offer a newly-developed Cummins V8 turbo diesel in its next-generation full-size pickup.

Now in the latter stages of development and testing, the available Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine has been optimized for the next generation Titan as a result of the partnership between Cummins and Nissan. Cummins also is developing a version of the engine for its commercial vehicle customers.

"We have done our homework on the next-generation Titan. Truck owners told us there's a demand for the performance and torque of a diesel in a capable truck that doesn't require the jump up to a heavy-duty commercial pickup," said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Service & Parts, Nissan North America. "There is no question that the new Titan will turn heads, and with the available Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel, we expect to win new fans and attract buyers looking for this unique configuration."

"We are very excited to partner with Nissan on the introduction of the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel to the North American pickup truck market," said Dave Crompton, vice president, Cummins Engine Business. "This new engine will offer the right balance of power, performance and fuel economy while delivering the dependability that customers expect of a Cummins engine. This will be a great package."

With a torque rating in the mid-500s (lb-ft) and more than 300 horsepower, the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel will provide light truck customers the combination of towing capacity and mileage that is expected in the highly-competitive North American truck marketplace.

The Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel will be built in America's manufacturing heartland at the Columbus Engine Plant, in Columbus, Ind., Cummins headquarters.

Like the current model, the next-generation Titan will be built at Nissan's Canton, Missisippi plant.
