12 years ago we have experienced the new truck which Nissan has published, and in turn it was one of the most reliable pickups on the market. Now the car has been regarded as old news, but that was until the Detroit Motor Show where the new Titan vehicle has been unveiled. The news about this car have been spreading for quite some time now and it was the Detroit show which marked its launch on the market.
The most anticipated news about the new 2016 Nissan Titan model is about its new diesel engine, which has been confirmed at the show. Despite the engines, the truck has been considerably trimmed down.
There are a lot of new features included and some upgrades as well. This is something which the Mississippi brand car really needed and is something which will put the car back on the map.
The news about it being launched for the general public has still not been confirmed yet. But as soon as the wrap up after the show we may expect to get an actual date and some more reliable information which might enables the fans to finally find and purchase this vehicle.
2016 Nissan Titan Exterior
What is characteristic for the design of the new 2016 Nissan Titan vehicle is that it is a combination of some old and trademark features which the developers have decided to keep with the new and modern additions which make the vehicle more aerodynamic. It is safe to say that the vehicle is now more anatomical instead of being architectural.
Because of the use of a larger engine than before, there needed to be some changes with the design of the vehicle. Firstly, the front part of the vehicle has been made much bigger with a massive front overhang. Secondly, the Titan is now fitted with a much stronger and reinforced Titan’s ladder frame.
The cargo bay has a standard of 6.5-ft. of cargo bed. It includes a Nissan’s Utili-Track system for adjustable cargo bed tie-down cleats and a spray-in bed liner. The bedside storage compartments have been made so one can remove them and set them any way you like.
Nissan have strived to make a masculine but quality vehicle and this was the basis for their inside look. Owed to the resized dimensions of the vehicle is the improved inside look of the Titan. The 2016 Nissan Titan now includes better comfort, durability and utility, which were the main goals of the makers.
Interestingly enough, the dashboard has been devised in order to group the controls based on their function type. The arrangement has been order based on the assessed frequency of use. the high tech inside look of the car is made with the addition of analog and digital displays. There is even a 7-in. touch-screen Nissan Connect technology which is a standard feature for all Titan models.
Important to note as well is that all of the parts on the dashboard have been made so as to be able to be operated with gloves. The design of the seat is also very interesting, as the truck now includes a “zero gravity” seat design. With the combination of the very comfortable water-repellent fabric upholstery and front- and rear-seat heating, the passengers of the Titan will feel as if they are floating on air while driving.
The new Nissan Titan comes equipped with a 5.0-liter, turbo-diesel V-8 engine. It has the ability of producing 310 horsepower at 3,200 rpm and 555 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm. This is one of the features of the Titan which the fans have been most excited about as the car now produces more power with the new diesel engine than it did with its previous one.
Also included is the 6-speed automatic transmission with the addition of the 4-wheel-drive system and an electronic-locking rear differential.
