New 2016 Nissan Titan Debuts in Detroit

For those who have a lot of work to do, a full-size pickup truck is the perfect choice. And now, full-size pickup buyers will have another option with a new heavy-duty Nissan truck, the 2016 Titan XD.

Nissan showed off this new class-defining truck at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nissan says this truck will define a new segment and fits between the current heavy-duty and light-duty lineups.

The XD will be able to handle the workload of a heavy-duty truck with a maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds, but will be more fuel-efficient and have a price range closer to standard half-ton pickups.

One of the key elements to this new truck is the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel that will offer 310 horsepower along with 555 lb-ft of torque. There will also be two other powertrain options to choose from.

“The new TITAN will deliver toughness, capability and quality,” said Carlos Ghosn, Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer, in a statement. “In addition to a range of cab configurations, the TITAN lineup will ultimately encompass multiple powertrain choices. These include an all-new workhorse gasoline V8, as well as our first V6 offering in this class.”

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD will be coming to Cronic Nissan by the end of this year.

Nissan knows how to kick off the new year the right way—with a teaser announcing that the new Sport Sedan Concept will make its debut in Detroit at the 2014 North American International Auto Show later this January. We’ve only been able to just glimpse the concept so far, but on January 13 the veil will finally be lifted and we’ll get our first full look at the dazzling new concept.

The Sport Sedan Concept, as we can confirm here at Cronic Nissan, does prefigure an eventual production model, widely rumored to be the 2015 Maxima. The released teaser image reveals a car with a similar profile—especially the front end styling—to the current Maxima while also showcasing Nissan’s “new energetic design direction.”

The 2014 NIAIS will also feature the North American premieres of the IDx Freeflow and IDx NISMO, futuristic compact vehicle concepts that took previously took the Tokyo Motor Show by storm.

With all this excitement—the promise of a new, sporty Nissan sedan and a flashy glimpse at the future of compact cars—slated just for January, it looks to be a very full and exciting year for Nissan!
