2015 Nissan Titan to get diesel option

2015 Nissan Titan is slated to receive a Cummins V-8 turbocharged diesel engine. The 2015 Nissan Titan is expected to offer better gas mileage than the current model's 15 miles per gallon combined highway, city driving.



The next-generation Nissan Titan full-size truck will feature a newly-developed Cummins V-8 turbocharged diesel unit, helping broaden the model's appeal in the competitive truck market.
A partnership between Cummins and Nissan will see the unit optimized for the next-gen Titan, and some serious power and torque will be on offer. Nissan is expecting a torque rating in the mid-500 lbs-ft range, while maximum output should comfortably top 300 horsepower.
RECOMMENDED: Do you know your car logos? Try our quiz.

Those numbers should put it comfortably above the recently-announced 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel, which uses a smaller 3.0-liter V-6 diesel unit developing 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.
Nissan says it has "done its homework" on the next-generation Titan, and has seen there's a ready market for the performance and torque of a diesel in the full-sized truck market, without requiring a jump to the heavy-duty truck sector. Nissan is expecting plenty of new buyers as a result.
Cummins, who will produce the new 5.0-liter unit in its Columbus plant, promises the new engine "will offer the right balance of power, performance and fuel economy while delivering the dependability that customers expect of a Cummins engine. This will be a great package."
The Titan itself will continue to be built at Nissan's Canton, Missouri assembly plant, and the next Titan's gasoline engines will continue production at Decherd, Tennessee.
There's no official word on fuel economy yet, but it's sure to eclipse the 13 mpg city, 18 highway and 15 combined of the existing 2013 Nissan Titan and its gasoline 5.6-liter V-8. We don't even know when to expect the model--for "competitive reasons" Nissan is keeping it on the down-low, but has revealed that engineering prototypes are already out and about on the public highway.




Will Toyota follow suit?

mmm, I wouldn't buy a Nissan truck, but a Nissan with a Cummins is another story. Boner worthy at that. This probably means that Toyota will be releasing a diesel in the US, too bad we didn't get to have a Cummins

Boner worthy sums it up nicely. If this thing test drives well, I'll trade for it if it ever happens.

YOU HEAR THAT TOYOTA?!?!? THRILLED TACOMA OWNER WILL BAIL.

Ok, hopefully it's a good truck or I'm staying.. just sayin.

Toyota seriously needs to start stepping it up. I'm starting to sway a little due to all the awesome technology and stuff coming out in vehicles now. Like the Dodge Power Wagon...mother of god.

I won't own another Chrysler product ever. Maybe a Ford..

How about when you go riding in your buddies '90-somethin' 4x4 dodge diesel which everyone knows is a POS other than the motor and has ungodly amounts of power and high 20's gas mileage when MY brand new 4x4 taco is in the high teens and weighs WAY less and has much less power?

Smaller truck, smaller engine, less weight supposed to = better mpg. wtf?!? C'mon Toyota, I love the truck, but you know you could do much better and actually take share from the full-size segment if you tried.

IMO all Toyota needs to do what Dodge is doing with the Power Wagon. You can either get an awesome kick ass truck for a higher price or just get a regular model. Toyota only really has regular models and nothing really to knock your pants off.

The diesel Nissan has been running around in Michigan and California for years now as prototypes, but its good to see it was successful and finally going onto production.

More speculation...
http://www.tacomahq.com/2066/new-chr...compact-truck/
"Rumors are swirling since Chrysler’s VP of product planning Joe Veltri told the Detroit News that they were looking into building a truck in the compact truck category. The thought is that there are younger and older buyers who want a compact, high MPGs truck, not a full-size version."
Unibody seems weird though....

I'd give it some time. While Cummins has a good reputation, this is their first vee engine I think. It could also suffer reliability problems with "accessory" components like the fuel pump or turbocharger.

Toyota has a 1VD-FTV 4.5L turbodiesel V8 used in overseas Land Cruisers since 2007. 479 lb-ft @ 1600-2600 rpm, 23 mpg:

Fingers crossed, not holding my breath

It would be nice if we could just have the landcruiser 70 with 4.5 turbo diesel like Australia has.
