Without a doubt one of the most-anticipated, if not THE most-anticipated, unveils at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week will be the Nissan Titan. The second-generation of the company’s full-sized pickup truck will likely be a 2016 model year production vehicle and will feature, as an option, the most powerful diesel engine offered in a half-ton pickup truck, a Cummins V8 producing about 550 lb-ft of torque.
The Nissan Titan was introduced as a truck almost ten years ago and had several firsts for the industry, such as a factory spray-lined bed, cargo boxes behind the wheels, a soft-open tailgate, and wide-opening rear doors for the four-seat cab. These are, for the most part, industry standards in most mainstream pickups. The Titan, however, has grown very long in the tooth since its introduction and when we reviewed it last year, the 2014 Nissan Titan was photogenic, but missing many of the comforts and capabilities of other pickups that have seen one or more updates since the Titan introduced.
So truck fans are looking forward to what Nissan has to offer with the all-new 2016 Nissan Titan. Until we see it Monday, though, we can only speculate about the Titan. Luckily, we can also wet our appetites thanks to some video and a few photos of the 2016 Titan in camouflage.
