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.

    My 04 Titan 4x4 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
