Nissan North America will unveil the gasoline model of the all-new Titan XD at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show to be held in the United States this January 11.
The first generation Titan is Nissan’s first full-size pickup truck released for the American market. It has been competing against Ford’s F Series, GM’s Silverado, FCA US’ Ram, and Toyota’s Tundra.
After more than ten years since its debut, Nissan fully remodeled the Titan. Badged as “Titan XD,” the second generation Titan was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2015. The Titan XD was designed in California, developed in Michigan, and assembled in Mississippi. Meanwhile, its powertrain was manufactured in Tennessee.
Initially, Nissan had announced that it will only have a diesel engine. It will be mounted with a Cummins 5L V8 turbo diesel engine that generates a maximum output and a maximum torque of 310hp and 76.7kgm respectively. Its maximum towing capacity, which is important for pickup trucks in the United States, is more than 5,443kg.
The all-new Titan XD’s gasoline model will be unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. It comes equipped with a direct injection 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine that generates 390hp of maximum output and 55.5kgm of maximum torque. It also features seven-speed automatic transmission and a rev matching system for deceleration.
The gasoline-powered Titan XD is slated to be released in the American market in the spring of 2016.
