2015 Nissan Titan to Gain Cummins Diesel V8



Quote:
As it turns out, Nissan poached more than just an executive from Chrysler’s Ram truck brand when Fred Diaz leaped lilly pads.

Nissan’s next-generation of Titan pickup trucks will include a turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 Cummins diesel powerplant, the company announced today. Official output ratings are still unavailable, but the engine is expected to make over 300 hp and somewhere in the mid-500 lb-ft of torque range.

“We have done out homework on the next-generation Titan,” Diaz said. “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 to a heavy-duty commercial pickup.”

Struggling sales and an outdated design with questionable reliability all hold the current model back. With minimal changes since its 2003 introduction, it’s easy to see why Nissan has been struggling in one of North America’s most bitterly contested segments. One-upsmanship between the Detroit 3 make it nearly impossible for less aggressively supported products to thrive.

But Nissan made a wise move by snagging Diaz, who is largely credited with steering the Ram truck brand to its current success.

“This ain’t my first rodeo,” he said at a media event in Southern California. “I know a thing of two about trucks.”

Nissan says the diesel engine is in the “latter stages of development and testing” with a version also coming for commercial vehicle customers.

What about Ford

I've been waiting for Ford to place a diesel engine in their F150 trucks. I've always wanted the durability, improved gas mileage without having to upgrade to a heavy duty truck.

Looks like Nissan beat them to the punch.

Hello FORD, are you listening?

Hopefully they upgrade the rear end. Dana 44HD won't cut it. I broke mine on the street, turning a corner.
