Default Next-Gen Nissan Titan Could Get Diesel Engine Says Product Boss


When Nissan finally gets around to replacing the Titan pickup truck, there’s a solid chance it will come with a diesel powerplant – at least as an option.

Quote:
Previous reports had indicted that there was a possibility, but in a recent interview, Nissan product boss Larry Dominique gave his strongest endorsement yet, commenting that, “diesel is certainly something we are looking at for the next generation Titan.”

The interview was actually a part of Nissan’s “win a chance to be an auto show reporter” contest, and considering all the questions and answers were likely vetted and prepared, this adds more weight to Dominique’s remarks.

Further discussing the issue of diesels Dominique says the introduction of such a powerplant would be based on “consumer demand for greater fuel economy.” Commenting that most consumers tow under 8,000 lbs and don’t require 800 lb-ft of torque, don’t look for a Heavy Duty diesel-powered Titan in the future. “Small displacement diesels or mid-size displacement diesels are certainly something we’d consider,” says Dominique.

Since a partnership with Chrysler fell through on the next-gen Titan, company execs have remained committed to the idea, but we’re not likely to see a second-generation of the Nissan pickup until at least 2014.

This might jumpstart a new market and GM to launch the small TD.

What?! No 9.2 liter diesel with 1800 lb.-ft., 36 ton towing capacity, and machine gun mounts?

I thought this was America.




Let's hope for a tidy Frontier replacement with a small displacement diesel.

Amen. I would love to see a SMALL diesel pickup offered by any manufacturer. Something the size of the first gen Tacoma. Seriously, the size/towing war is so out of control right now.

Cummins swap, possible.

Not sure if serious on last part.

Kind of a shocker considering the new ram 1500 will not have a cummins diesel.

This is a great thing for nissan and the specs look very attractive.

Given (Renault)Nissan and Daimler's pairing up to develop engines it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to see the GLK250 Bluetec's 2.1L diesel 4 show up in a Nissan truck.

The Frontier for sure, but i'm skeptical about the titan. Less than 200HP and 270ft/lbs of torque is not enough for a full size pickup, definitely will seem like a real dog, but if the MPG's are super high 30+mpg then yes, there would be a case for it even being sluggish with a low tow/payload rating.

Agreed.

A smaller I4 Diesel with those stats would be a better choice for Frontier/Xterra.

A full size behemoth of a truck, that likely approaches or exceeds 3 tons, with 3/4 ton bed weight capacity, and a 5 ton tow rating... to compete with the other full size trucks...

Needs a bigger diesel engine, at least an I6 or V8.

The GLK's new diesel is rated at 200hp/369 lb-ft.

I'm skeptical of that number, the new sprinter van doesn't get that much, only 269 ft lbs
