2017 Nissan Titan Diesel Release Date

The much-anticipated second-generation Titan pickup truck arrived in 2015 for the 2016 model year. The brand new iteration introduced a mighty Cummins turbodiesel engine to its engine range for the first time. However, the Titan is currently available only in its XD version powered by the V8 diesel as the sole engine. According to the company, the engine range is due to receive additional V6 and V8 gasoline-powered units very soon. So, expect the 2017 Titan to become much more versatile than its immediate predecessor. As for the 2017 Nissan Titan Diesel, it is expected to go on sale virtually unchanged compared to the current model. The 2017 Nissan Titan Diesel is expected to hit the market in the second half of 2016.

2017 Nissan Titan Diesel Engine Specs

Nissan’s decision to give the Titan a huge diesel engine surprised many truck enthusiasts. This 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel generates 310 horsepower at 3200 rpm and 555 pound-feet of torque at 1600 rpm. While its horsepower output may not be as impressive as the one offered by modern V8 gasoline engines, the torque numbers put to shame all of the other light-duty trucks on the market. In that sense, expect the 2017 Nissan Titan Diesel to provide exceptional towing and hauling abilities. Both the rear-wheel and all-wheel drive versions come paired with a six-speed automatic transmission built by Aisin. The engine itself uses a compacted-graphite-iron block, aluminum heads, Cummins’s new M2 two-stage turbocharger as well as dual overhead camshafts. As a result, the engine weighs less than 1,000 pounds, which is a significant improvement.

 Exterior and Interior Design

As for the new Titan’s styling, many agree that it mimics the redesigned Ford F-150 to a large extent. However, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing since the F-150 has been a class-leading model in most respects for many years now. Expect the 2017 Nissan Titan Diesel to feature a sleek new design with several striking styling cues. Inside the cabin, Nissan’s engineers have overhauled this model in a way that results in a more user-friendly surrounding. The redesigned center stack now features a seven-inch touchscreen display, while the new instrument panel comes with a number of analogue gauges. Some of the most notable amenities include Nissan’s 360-degree Around View Monitor system as well as a new backup camera that makes hooking up a trailer much easier. There is also a new rear-seat folding system that converts the rear bench into a flat load floor.
