Η Nissan ανακοίνωσε πως το MY2016 Titan εκός από τον 5.0-λιτρο Cummins turbodiesel V8 κινητήρα των 310 ίππων, θα είναι διαθέσιμο και με έναν κινητήρα βενζίνης. Η Nissan ωστόσο “ξέχασε” να μας πει τα τεχνικά χαρακτηριστικά αυτού, λέγοντας μόνο το Titan MY2016 θα είναι διαθέσιμο συνολικά με τρεις κινητήρες, για τους οποίους θα πρέπει να κάνουμε υπομονή ώστε να μάθουμε τα κυβικά και τις ιπποδυνάμεις τους.
2016 Nissan TITAN XD Crew Cab
Nissan challenges the full-size pickup segment in North America with the introduction of a “powerful precision tool” for hard-working, hard-playing buyers – the all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD. More than just a new model, TITAN XD creates a “new class” of pickup that stakes out a unique position in the segment between traditional heavy-duty and light-duty entries. The bold new design combines the capability of a heavy-duty hauler with the drivability and affordability of a light-duty pickup – and is anchored by a powerful Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel rated at 310 horsepower and a hefty 555 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission.
While the new TITAN XD offers the effortless towing and hauling of the larger, more expensive heavy-duty trucks – including a maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds* when properly equipped – it offers the fuel-efficiency* and affordability of a half-ton pickup.
TITAN’s innovation leadership continues with cutting-edge available towing, utility features and driving aids, including an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation – including checking turn signals, brake lights and running/clearance lights. Also assisting trailer hook-ups is TITAN’s RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, while the available Around View® Monitor (AVM) provides a unique “bird’s eye” view of the surrounding area from front, rear and side cameras to help with parking and pulling in and out of tight spaces. The system also includes Moving Object Detection (MOD), which helps the driver detect moving objects such as vehicles, shopping carts or other large objects when backing out via an on-screen notification and warning chime.
Helping TITAN XD owners take advantage of its ample towing power are two available hitches – including an integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame and easily accessible in the bed.
The new TITAN XD Crew Cab, with its powerful Cummins 5.0L Turbo Diesel V8, is the first of three cab configurations, two frame sizes, three powertrain offerings and five grade levels to be available later in the Nissan TITAN lineup. More information on the full lineup will be available at a later date.
Offered in S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve models
