2016 Nissan TITAN XDThe 2016 Nissan Titan XD engines mean that Regina and Swift Current drivers can expect even more from one of the biggest names in heavy-duty trucking. Two V8 engines are available, and they enable the Titan XD to blow away the competition.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD V8 Lineup

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD shuns the standard practice of offering a mediocre base engine by putting two V8 powerhouses at your disposal. The 5.6L Endurance V8 gasoline engine commands a herculean output of up to 390 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque, while an all-new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel combines that mighty level of capability with exceptional fuel economy ratings.

That power is handled by a rugged new transfer case and a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission, ensuring maximum power distribution and dependable traction across even the most challenging terrain.

Put an engine like the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel in a half-ton truck, and you’d better engineer the vehicle to handle incredible towing capacity. The 2016 Titan doesn’t disappoint: it can tow up to 5,460 kg.

The 2016 Nissan Titan’s Build

Those V8 engines form the pounding heart of the Titan, but they need to be surrounding by the strong sinew and muscle of a first-class machine. That’s why the team at Nissan has gone back to basics to ensure that the new Titan can fully leverage the output of its unstoppable engines.

Regina and Swift Current drivers can enjoy:

  • Stronger Suspension: The Titan features new heavy-duty suspension, with double wishbone front suspension that has been reinforced and retuned, plus bigger leaf springs and overhauled leaf bushings.
  • Heavy-Duty Brakes: With 14 inches of ventilated, hydraulically boosted stopping power, the Titan can come to standstill with supreme confidence.
  • High-Strength Steel Frame: Forming a superhero-style skeleton for the Titan, every component of the frame has been bolstered and strengthened.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a Truly Monumental Trucking Achievement

The new Titan lives up to its name by harnessing primordial power and offering rock-solid dependability. For more information on the 2016 Nissan Titan XD engine options and capabilities, contact Knight Nissan — or come in for a test-drive.
