Owners Show Their Love for the 2016 Nissan Titan

Nissan’s all-new full-size pickup truck made its world debut earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show. According to the automaker, the bold 2016 Cummins-powered model was “created for American buyers,” — and so far, potential customers are showing quite a bit of love. (1)

Truck Love

The Japanese automaker has been promoting the redesigned 2016 Nissan Titan XD via its online Truckumentary video series. The latest chapter, entitled “Truck Love,” looks at the cult-like following of the pickup, which shows us just how strong the customer base really is. (2)
Edmunds.com describes the very enthusiastic group of buyers as slightly different from Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and Ram 1500 clients, in that they are “younger, better educated, more active and more diverse than the competition.” (2)

The carmaker’s latest Truckumentary episode shows prospective and current Titan clients taking a look at the newly revised 2016 model in Texas and California — providing viewers with the opportunity to real-world reactions to the vehicle before it appears in dealership showrooms. (2)

What to Expect

The new 2016 Titan XD pickup is expected to arrive later this year, (3) sporting a bolder-looking exterior and interior design, new badging (1) — and more importantly — a powerful Cummins 5.0-liter V-8 Turbo Diesel pushing 310 horses and an impressive 555 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that Road and Track says is sourced from Aisin. (4) One can easily say that the Cummins engine alone is enough to get fans riled up, (2) especially since it helps the Titan achieve a maximum towing capacity of over 12,000 pounds when properly equipped. (1)

Other noteworthy elements include trailer-related features, such as an integrated brake controller, a downhill hauling mode, sway control, a rearview camera with trailer guides and an optional factory-installed gooseneck hitch — among others. (4) Trailer Light Check (for turn signals and brake lights), Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Blind Spot Warning and front and rear sonar systems are also available with the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD.

Overall, Edmunds.com says the automaker’s mission for its new model is to offer a vehicle that is not only more comfortable and affordable than heavy-duty pickup trucks, but that also delivers more capability than any other traditional half-ton vehicle. (2)
