2016 Nissan Titan Significantly Improved

By | 04/14/2014

The 2016 Nissan Titan will have its premiere at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show that is scheduled for January next year. The first model was presented ten years ago, in 2004, and have struggled to make any significant sales ever since. In a way, this redesign was long overdue because the model holds a very small part of the market. If Nissan wants to improve this, and we are sure it does, then it has to make an outstanding new model given the competition in a full-size, light-duty pickup market. Their target with this new model will be 93 percent of the segment market, which is a very ambitious plan. In order to achieve this, we expect an extreme makeover in every part of the vehicle. The look will have a drastic change, which relates to both interior and exterior. In addition, there will be more engines offered, including a gasoline V-6 and a turbodiesel Cummins engines. We expect the new vehicle to have a better fuel consumption and to weigh less in order to achieve this. All in all, the 2016 Nissan Titan must be an amazing pickup with specs better than any of the competition’s specs if it wants to fulfill its goal and win over the buyers that are, so far, not very interested in this model.

2016 Nissan Titan Regular Cab

The 2016 Nissan Titan will be the first Titan to have a regular cab offered. The previous models only had the crew cab and the extended one offered, so this is a nice surprise. In addition, this shows us that the manufacturer has realized the flaws this model has and it also means we can expect it to solve all the other ones that made Titan undesirable. As for the exterior, not many information can be found regarding this. However, we expect the new 2016 Titan to keep the basic lines of its predecessor, but to improve it with more modern and attractive details. This means the design will change drastically, but will keep the resemblance to the previous one, and that it will keep the powerful, sort of edgy look we have seen before.  If you give it a thought, this is a very rational move. All of its competition has their models refreshed and up-to-date, while keeping them recognizable and within the basic of the design language, so it is only natural to expect Nissan do the same.

2016 Nissan Titan Engines — V-6 & V-8 Cummins

The 2016 Nissan Titan will have a drastically improved engine lineup. There will be two engines offered. The first one is the gasoline V-6 engine and the other one is the 5.0-liter V-8 Cummins turbodiesel engine. There are some rumors about the additional Cummins V-6 diesel engine, too, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. In addition, it is expected that the 2016 Titan will produce not more than 275 horsepower and 560lb-ft of torque. Also, we expect the new model to have a better fuel economy, but since the model is still in development, this information will be available later, when the test are run. As for other specs, they will be available some time later, when we will be able to get a hold of some confirmed information.

2016 Nissan Titan Premiere

The 2016 Nissan Titan will debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January next year. As for the release date and the price, nothing has been announced yet. If it proves out that the new model truly fulfill all our expectations and comes as a reborn, competitive model, you could expect its price to go a bit higher. So far, from the information mentioned above, the 2016 Titan is on a good path to meet the goal set in front of it: 93% of the segment market. Maybe this is a bit too ambitious wish, but if they manage to make low fuel consumption, include all the necessary systems and offer good performance, the 216 Nissan Titan will surely increase its sale’s numbers significantly.
