2014 Nissan TitanDuring the Nissan 360 event back in August, the auto manufacturer made quite a stir with the announcement of a newly developed V8 Cummins  turbo diesel in its next-generation Nissan Titan. The full-size pickup truck will certainly benefit greatly from the use of a diesel powertrain, as it is sure to provide plenty of power while boasting fuel efficiency. At Knight Nissan in Swift Current, we are very excited about this news and can’t wait to see what the latest iteration of the Nissan Titan will have to offer upon its release!

The Capability Offered by the Cummins Turbo Diesel Engine

According to recent Nissan consumer data, there is a demand among Titan owners for the performance and torque that a diesel powertrain delivers. So with this in mind, Cummins eagerly accepted a partnership with Nissan to provide the 2015 Nissan Titan with an available 5.0L Cummins Turbo Diesel V8 engine. With ratings of 300 hp and 500 lb.-ft. of peak torque, this new powertrain will absolutely offer light-duty truckers substantial torque, power, and fuel efficiency that diesel engines are known for in the competitive North American Truck market.

Current Nissan Titan Powertrain Choice

Considered the largest standard engine in its class, the current 2013 Nissan Titan is equipped with a 5.6L Endurance V8 engine that puts out 317 hp and 385 lb.-ft. of maximum torque. This no-nonsense gasoline powertrain can tow up to 4,309 kg when properly equipped. With an additional 1,000 kg maximum payload, you have enough power to get through the workday or bring everything you need wherever you need to go without the hassle of multiple trips. This engine, in addition to the 5.0L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, will provide next-generation Nissan Titan drivers with outstanding power options.
