Updated December 10, 2014

The auto industry is abuzz with news about the launch of the new 2016 Nissan Titan at next year’s Detroit Auto Show. The new generation full-sized pickup truck has made headlines before, but had since been almost forgotten, until this new revelation came about.

What makes it rule the headlines?

But why is the 2016 Nissan pickup that special? Because it is supposed to feature a unique Cummins 5.0-liter turbocharged diesel V8 engine, only previously seen in the popular . This is great and exciting news for both Nissan and the truck, since the new model is expected to finally make the Titan a market contender and erase the dismal sales of its predecessor from consumers’ memories.

The V8 gasoline engine is something really significant to look forward to

The much awaited V8 engine!

Although the redesign is certainly welcome, the new engine, which is supposed to bring much needed powertrains to the Nissan full-size half ton, is the biggest attraction of the 2016 Titan. While the V6 engine is certainly wanted and needed, the V8 should be the first to come out with the new release, packing the impressive 300hp and 00 lb-ft of peak torque,
