Nissan debuted the all-new
Nissan Titan full-size pickup to a standing room-only crowd of international
media at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Presiding over the
dramatic reveal was Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn,
who stated, "With the 2016 Nissan Titan XD, we weren't just going for
'best-in-class.' Instead, we are offering the 'Best New Class.'"
According to a company press
release, the new Titan XD, the first of the new generation of Nissan Titan models,
creates a new segment of the American market. It offers the effortless towing
and hauling of the larger, more expensive heavy-duty trucks – yet has the
fuel-efficiency and affordability of half-ton pickups. It is projected to go on
sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in late 2015.
Powered by a new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel rated at 310 horsepower and hefty 555 lb-ft of torque, the 2016 Titan XD will offer an available maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds (when properly equipped), along with available cutting-edge towing features such as an integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame.
Additional available Titan XD utility features and convenience aids include RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation – including checking turn signals, brake lights and running/clearance lights from outside the vehicle. Also available are Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and a Front and Rear Sonar System.
The wide range of available interior features includes front and rear NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats and a large centre console designed to serve as a mobile workstation.
