Nissan announces new gasoline engine for 2016 Titan

Nissan have just released the details for a new gasoline V8 engine for the 2016 Titan truck. It will be available for both the standard Titan and the Titan XD and will place it firmly in the work truck market to compete directly with the Ford F-150.

The engine is a 5.6-litre V8 that produces 390 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. It features four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and lift, direct injection and new pistons with a 11:2:1 compression ratio to deliver predictable power with reasonable gas mileage. The engine will be mated to a seven speed automatic transmission that features adaptive shift control and rev matching.

This gas engine joins the Cummins diesel motor that is currently available for the truck. That engine is a 5.0-litre V8 that delivers 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque and uses a six speed automatic transmission to send power to the rear wheels.

The new gasoline engine for the 2016 Nissan Titan is expected to be available from spring 2016. Further details on specs and pricing have yet to be announced.

“With this new engine, Nissan Titan XD customers will have the opportunity to make the choice that is best for their towing and hauling needs; either the all-new Endurance V8 or the Cummins diesel, two offerings that you won’t find on any other truck on the market today,” said Rich Miller, chief product specialist, Titan, Nissan North America, Inc.

2016 Nissan Titan XD
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is an all-new truck that seeks to part many buyers from domestic brands. With great looks, a solid engine, good performance, a fantastic interior and lots of features, it stands a good chance of doing it too.

With three cab configurations, two frame sizes and five trim levels, choice is not something the Titan XD is short of. The cabin has been redesigned to offer more passenger room and plenty of technology. The legendary Nissan build quality is clear for all to see too, making this a solid contender for a daily worker.

The diesel V8 is a powerful engine that drives well and has enough power for just about any road condition or environment. The transmission is smooth and makes all the right moves at all the right times. Whether you’re on the highway on in the city, you’re always in the right gear.

With a huge range of options that includes technology, safety and truck-oriented practicality, there is a lot to love about the 2016 Nissan Titan XD.
