Nissan prepared some news under the hood too. Its base engine V8 will probably be carried over, while Nissan will also offer V8 diesel. Although there is no any reliable info about the base engine, we can be almost sure that Japanese producer will decide to add a V6 engine to the line-up, in order to provide better fuel economy and to level-up with its competitors.

Current power unit 5.6-liter V8 with 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft torque will probably remain included into the offer. Most interesting news, however, when it comes to performance of the 2016 Nissan Titan is the news about new diesel power unit. It will be a 5.0-liter Cummins diesel V8 which will be able to deliver roughly 300 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.

Introduction of diesel, and potential V6, will significantly influence the fuel economy of the new Titan. Its low rates will be changed much, which will provide better positioning of the upcoming Titan among its rivals in the pick-up world.
