2016 Nissan Titan Gets New 5.6L Gas V8 with 401 LB-FT

Nissan has announced what the gasoline V8 engine option will be in the new Titan and Titan XD. 

A 5.6-liter V8 will be available making 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, improvements of 73 hp and 16 lb-ft of torque. Nissan calls is the ‘Endurance’ V8.

Nissan says that this is an all-new engine which only shares displacement with the previous Titan. The 2016 version of the 5.6-liter V8 features variable valve event and lift technology, direct injection and four-valves per cylinder. Throttle response is said to be improved thanks to the new valve technology, while a new piston design allows for a high compression ratio and more performance.

When paired with the Titan XD, the engine will be linked with a seven-speed automatic that features adaptive shift control and automatic rev-matching downshifts.

Nissan expects fuel economy to be improved, though no specific targets were mentioned.

Gasoline-powered Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab models go on sale in Spring of 2016, while the standard Titan is expected to debut next summer.

    so basically QX80 engine and tranny

  • smartacus

    good, it needed it.
    the previous engine’s figures were comparable to the AMG 2.0T.

  • xman

    AMG got 355 HP dude

  • smartacus

    yes 355 HP is correct for last year’s model.

    2016 MY makes 381PS

  • xman

    nothing official yet. 2016 site still says 355 HP and old titan had 317 HP.

  • smartacus

    2016 AMG 2.0 is in no way anything other than 381PS.
    it’s been reported as such since half a year ago.
    wiki articles on A and CLa have it,
    even a quick search of this site has it

  • xman

    In North America it was and still is 355 HP.

  • smartacus

    In North America, the CLA45 AMG makes 375HP
    I don’t know who is feeding you this misinformation.

  • xman

    Info just updated on Canadian site. Now you can compare your Titan HP properly.

  • smartacus

    the decision to compare Titan HP was never contingent on the heliocentric Canadian site updating.

  • xman

    Why compare a compact car to a full size pick up anyway?

  • smartacus

    i didn’t realize you were comparing the vehicles themselves.

  • xman

    “good, it needed it.
    the previous engine’s figures were comparable to the AMG 2.0T.”
    You must have for got what you wrote dude.

  • smartacus

    “You must have for got what you wrote dude”

    -i did not forget what i wrote
    -You must have mis under stood AMG 2.0T is not a car, but an engine.

  • xman

    belonging to a compact car.

  • smartacus

    Yes i understand what you are going through; the unsuccessful attempt to make it look like the discussion was about compact cars and not about the engine’s HP.
    -And I’m deeply apologetic for being correct about the HP of the 2016 iteration of AMG’s 2.0T engine.

  • xman

    Yes, when YOU compare a compact car’s engine’s output with a pick up truck’s engine. You should be sorry.

  • smartacus

    So you are embarrassed for being wrong about the HP, but why are you so childish about it?
    Next time, just fact check better before attempting to correct me.
    You can be wrong, but YOU alone made yourself look like a clown

  • xman

    no because that is what it showed at the time. I read they were going to up it but till it is official, I do not speculate. You need to compare properly. compact car engines to pick ups?? Kind of different uses don’t you think. Only one clown here dude.

  • smartacus

    -NOPE. My information was correct and correct on the day i gave it. Your information was not.

    -You voluntarily made yourself look uninformed by first attempting to correct me with inaccurate HP information.

    -When i casually pointed out my information was not in need of correction; you got embarrassed and desperately attempted to save face by saying your information source had conveniently updated on the same day you ran out of “plausible deniability” for being wrong on your info.

    -When that didn’t work; you attempted to say i was doing a car comparison; all the while ignoring your own written comments which corroborate the fact that you KNEW i was not comparing the vehicles themselves.

    i agree, only one clown here. and it’s unfortunately not me.
    *i await your predictable “i’m not wrong because i said so. You’re a clown because i said so” reply in 3..2..1

  • xman

    quote: good, it needed it.
    the previous engine’s figures were comparable to the AMG 2.0T. Why dude why? Using your info, 375 HP AMG, 317 HP titan. Early dementia? Forgot what you were writing? Comparing what?

  • smartacus

    -Now you are attempting another topic change yet again, instead of just fessing up to being wrong about your original intent on correcting me.

    -First; you inaccurately attempted to correct my HP information

    -when that didn’t work, you unsuccessfully attempted to spin it like i was talking about compact cars (and even claiming i forgot what i wrote)

    -when i pointed it out, you got further embarrassed at being wrong and called me a clown hoping it will help your embarrassment.

    -Now you are trying the same thing again, hoping it will work, saying i got early dementia and forgot what i was writing when it is evident you are the one who is trying to forget this embarrassing incident about you being wrong.
