The honors and awards just keep coming for the all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD, which has just been selected as “2016 Pickup Truck of the Year” by the editorial staff of Autobytel, a leading provider of online automotive services connecting consumers with dealers.
The all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD has been selected by the editors of AutoGuide.com as the "2016 Truck of the Year," the latest in a growing list of honors for the groundbreaking Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel-powered full-size pickup.
The much-anticipated launch of the all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD full-size pickup was punctuated during the College Football Playoff National Championship game when Nissan ran a commercial that announced the arrival of the company's "Every Duty™" full-size pickup to a segment traditionally dominated by U.S. domestic competitors.
Nissan announced today that a new 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine, assembled in Decherd, Tennessee, will be available in the all-new TITAN and TITAN XD full-size pickup trucks, completing the first phase of the "American TITAN" story. The engine features four-valves per cylinder, Variable Valve Event & Lift and Direct Injection, and is rated at 390 horsepower @ 5,800 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm.
The all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD full-size pickup has been named one of three finalists for the 2016 North AmericanTruck/Utility of the Year (NATOY), an annual award selected by an independent, self-funded jury made up of a group of automotive journalists from across the United States and Canada. The announcement of the finalists for both the North American Truck of the Year and the North American Car of the Year was made today at the Automotive Press Association luncheon in Detroit.
