2016 Nissan Titan XD Wins Truck of the Year Award

The 2016 Truck of the Year Award recipient is the tough Nissan Titan XD.

The all-new pickup impressed the editors with its robust towing capabilities, clever features and strong diesel engine.

“The new Nissan Titan XD offers a comfortable, quiet ride and more confidence than what you’ll find in today’s half-ton pickup market,” said Stephen Elmer,’s resident Truck Expert. “For the customer who is focused on towing, the Titan XD will deliver, while a number of handy features like the new trailer light check system make the truck a great working companion.”

Powered by a 5.0-liter Cummins turbo-diesel V8 good for 310 horsepower and a brawny 555 pound-feet of torque, the Titan XD hits a trucking sweet spot by offering heavy-duty confidence without sacrificing the ease-of-use and comfort of a half-ton truck. Combined with a big helping of smart features tailored for real truck customers, the Titan XD proves that it is not afraid of an honest day’s work.

The Nissan Titan XD beat out the 2016 Toyota Tacoma and GMC Canyon Diesel for top honors. Congratulations to the team at Nissan.
