NISSAN LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION TITAN PICKUP
Nissan showed the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. The first model to go on sale in late 2015 will be the Titan XD Crew Cab. It will have a maximum available towing capacity of 12,000 pounds and carry a maximum payload of 2,000 lbs (when properly equipped). Titan will be available with a Cummins 5.0 litre V-8 turbo diesel engine outputting 310 horsepower and 555 foot/pounds of torque.

"The full-size pickup segment in North America is a market where Nissan sees an unmet need, the towing and hauling power of a heavy-duty with the drivability and comfort of a light-duty," said Fred Diaz, Senior Vice-President, Nissan Sales and Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. "Nissan is coming back into the market full-force with this new Titan XD, which does just that. We think that full-size truck buyers are going to take notice."

Titan, entering its second generation, will also be available in King cab, standard cab, and Crew cab as shown in Detroit, with either 4x4 or 4x2 drivetrains. In addition to diesel, gasoline V-8 and V-6 models will be available.

Titan will offer RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD), a Trailer Light Check system, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and a Front and Rear Sonar System.

"The new TITAN XD is a work-place warrior, ready to haul, pull, tow and tackle whatever a job site throws at it – yet with the style and comfort for everyday use," added Diaz.

Available features include LED headlights and taillights and DRLs, step rails for cabin and bed entry/exit, spray-on bedliner, flush-mounted LED bedrail lighting, cargo and tailgate lamps, 120-volt in-bed access and a damped tailgate.
