Nissan officially confirmed plans today to reveal the all-new 2016 Titan pickup truck in roughly six months during the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

A company spokesman confirmed that the truck will be revealed during the massive auto show. With the upcoming Titan, Nissan is seeking to improve its position in the highly-competitive half-ton truck segment. Part of that plan includes an optional 5.0-liter Cummins diesel V8 expected to offer roughly 300 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

Nissan announced its plan in August, 2013 shorlty after poaching luring Ram truck boss Fred Diaz from Chrysler. Further details on the truck are still hazy, but company is expected to offer a six-cylinder starting with the new generation in 2016 as well. Nissan will offer the new truck with a broader range of engines and options to better compete with the rest of the market unlike  the current Titan, which is sold exclusively with a V8.

    That Cummins is going to be awesome!

    I hope Nissan has engineered a more durable transmission to match up to the Cummins torque and horse power. Otherwise it may be a uphill battle to enter into the already competitive diesel truck market. Too bad they couldn’t get Allison to join their alliance. I am excited to see the new design though. I’ve been very happy with my 2011 Titan for the price I paid for it.

    I am really looking forward to seeing what the new Titan will look like. I have owned the same Titan since 2005. I have 124,000 mile on the truck and it still looks and runs like new. I pull a 36ft. Forest River Surveyor camper with it. Aside from minor problems (replaced both hubs at 100,000 miles, got a pin hole in my radiator at 110,00 miles and I replaced the radiator) this truck has been like a tank. I have practically raised a family in it! I might buy the new diesel, but I will be keeping “ol’ faithful” in the driveway. This truck is still looks and runs to good.
