August 20, 2013 – Nissan announced it will offer a newly developed Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo-diesel engine in its next-generation full-size Titan pickup. “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. (Diaz was formerly with Ram. Check out his comments below.) With a torque rating in the mid-500 lb-ft and over 300 hp, the engine promises to provide light truck customers a good combination of towing capacity and mileage. The company says it is not announcing launch dates at this time.
