The new 2016 Nissan Titan XD with more engine options and updated features will probably make it to the list of great full-sized pickup trucks. The thing that sets the 2016 Nissan Titan XD apart from the competition is its powerful and new diesel engine. In addition, its updated interiors and bed length configurations also help to make it a great pickup truck.
2016 Nissan Titan XD: Engine Specs
The main changes made to the new Titan XD include a V8 diesel engine and a V6 engine. The present model is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine that only performs at 15 miles per gallon, making it less fuel-efficient than it should be. The 2016 Titan on the other hand will look new and it will also be fitted with a V8 diesel engine. This engine will provide good towing capacity and fuel economy and it will provide a comfortable ride as well.
On the outside, the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD looks boxy. Its front wishbone suspension is borrowed from that of the commercial vans and trucks sold by Nissan. The Titan XD is available in a 4×2 as well as 4×4 drivetrain.
Under the hood, Nissan is currently offering only a 5.0-liter turbo diesel V8 engine that is capable of producing 310 horsepower and 555 lb./ft. of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. If you are looking for a pickup truck with good towing capacity and a wonderful payload capability then the XD is just right for you. In fact, the XD is capable of towing 12000 pounds and it will also have an excellent payload capacity as well. The mass of the Titan XD is such that it does not qualify for EPA fuel economy testing. What’s more, Nissan has not revealed anything about the fuel efficiency of the XD but it does go on to say that the diesel V8 engine will perform better than its competitors on the fuel economy factor. The Titan XD should have a maximum speed of about 125 miles per hour and it should be capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in fewer than seven seconds.
