One of the highlights of Nissan’s all-new 2016 Titan pickup truck is the Cummins 5.0-liter turbo diesel offered in the Titan XD.
Developed specifically for the Titan XD, the Cummins engine produces 310hp and 555lb-ft (752 Nm) of torque, granting the truck a towing capacity of 12,000 lbs (5,443 kg).
Based on Columbus, Indiana, a few hours up I-65 from Nissan’s Tennessee-based North American Headquarters, Cummins has worked closely with the Japanese automaker on the all-new Titan XD.
Nissan is apparently very pleased with this collaboration and has released a video showing how deep the collaboration between the two companies went.
Titled “Diesel Goodness,” the video is the sixth episode of the Nissan Titan “Truckumentary” web series and features some of the key people who worked on the project speak about how good the Cummins diesel engine is and how it enhances the Titan’s performance. I guess we have to settle for this until we see some reviews.
