2016 Nissan Titan Confirmed for Detroit Debut

2016 Nissan Titan Confirmed for Detroit Debut

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!

  • Scott Bloomer

    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.

    Hope they fix there exhaust manifolds,and put stronger rears in the new trucks I had an 04 it had both problems

    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.

    I’m glad you have had such good luck with yours. I have a 2006 and have had nothing but trouble… so much in fact, Nissan gave me an extended, top tier warranty. I was up to 27 trips to the shop before 22k miles. 114k now and somewhere around 47 times in the shop. I obviously got one that was built on a Friday before a Holiday weekend. The Engine and transmission have been solid but everything else has been nothing but junk… Just a list off the top of my head: radiator, cooling fan 3x, rotors 2x, rear axle 2x drive shaft 3x, alignment at 5k, shocks 2x, oil cooler lines 2x, PS hose, blower motor 2x, a/c drain, TPS batteries, keyless entry, cruise control, power windows, seat belts 3x, door panels, cup holder, power mirror 2x, center brake light, power seat, manual seat, carpet, seat covers, tailgate handle linkages 4x, rear window lock 2x, radio, mixer board. I’m sure there is more, but it’s been an ass whip.

    MDER – I’m in the same boat as you, loved the truck and it always started and ran, but getting it to move sometimes was detrimental. I had rear end problems repeatedly with it. Other problems that have been documented on titantalk have plagued it also, ended up throwing in the towel and went over to a tundra.

  • I have a 2006 that has been perfect. I am hoping for a smaller V8 and a limited slip to be included on all models. I want the size of the truck but I don’t need the power of the 5.6 (although I love it).

    My 04 Titan 4×4 LE has 56k on it and is on rear axle #3. I had both exhaust manifolds and brakes repaired under warranty somewhere around 20k. The radiator died and was replaced at 30k . So it has been a bit of a pain. The rear differential just replaced at a cost to me of $3700. Is probably the why the New Titan won’t be in my driveway. I think Nissan has rear differential problems.. I thought Dana axles were supposed to be tough. Mine sure haven’t been..

    I have a 2004 Titan with 154,000 miles. Towel a 27′ sea ray that weighs with trailer, etc at over 11,000 lbs. Yes I am way over capacity but tow 1000 miles every year and the Titan pulls it great except for 7miles/gal. I love the my truck – some minor issues as other as said with the brakes in the begging but outside of that the only other major issue was exhaust manifold at 120,000 miles so no complaints. It’s been a great truck and my use to haul stuff all the time
