In the pickup truck world, one thing is certain: there’s the Ford F-150, standing head and shoulders above the rest in sales, marketing, and good old American heritage, and then there’s every other truck on the market. That’s the rule. Now let me introduce you to the diesel-chugging, earth-moving, miniature American…
By now you may be familiar with the 2016 Nissan Titan XD, a “hardcore light-duty” truck in between the half-ton and three-quarter-ton classifications. We knew a regular-sized half-ton version was coming, and here it is. I guess it’s “hardcore regular,” then?
Pricing has been announced for five trims of the 2016 Nissan Titan XD; basically every crew cab variant with the diesel engine ranging from just over $40,000 to a top trim at $60,520. The base model is officially the cheapest four-door, four-wheel drive Cummins you can buy new, but that might not matter.
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD's 5.0 Cummins diesel V8 is designed for longevity and low-noise output. But the M² "two-stage" two-turbo setup is where that beastly 555 lb-ft of torque figure, and theoretically robust powerband, come from. Here's how it works.
A Japanese automaker taking on The Big Three wouldn't be a big story in any market, except trucks. The completely redesigned Cummins-diesel powered 2016 Nissan Titan is posturing to really shake up the American truck market. Here's everything we know about it so far.
The 2016 Nissan Titan is scheduled to make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next month, but somebody caught up to one on the highway and got some of the best spy footage of the truck in action that we've seen so far.
George Barris has been anointed - by none other than George Barris - the “King of Kustomizers.” Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Titan is one of his rare road-going cars, and may have once been owned by Rat Pack member Sammy Davis Jr. You’ll have to decide if it’s rat packing too heavy a price.
Cummins and Nissan are testing a 4-cylinder diesel engine for the Nissan Titan with the feds that could get 28 mpg while pumping more than 350 lbs-ft. of torque. Mahindra who?
Crews destroyed, hauled away, and repaved the 1.4-million square feet of racing surface at Daytona International Speedway in just 19 weeks. It took 100 million pounds of asphalt and a ton of engineering know-how. Here's how they did it.
Our favorite chronicler of down-under hauling spotted this pair of Mack Titans pulling a massive (ship/oil rig/pumping station) industrial engine. Australia for life. Photo Credit: Zsolti/NYM.
Volkswagen in the US has carefully crafted an identity of high-quality cars offering premium features at reasonable prices. You'd never know they also build heavy trucks that are ten kinds of badass. Like this — the VW Constellation.
This is the Nissan NV, a trio of Titan-based vans available with a 4.0-liter V6 or 5.6-liter V8 and a freaky "High Roof" option. It comes in half-ton, 3/4-ton and full-ton flavors and will make the perfect taco truck.
Nissan was kind enough to provide us with some time to answer questions about their new Nissan-Chrysler Platform Swap. For those who haven't been following the news, Dodge is going to build the next generation full-size truck for Nissan based on the upcoming Dodge Ram platform. In return, Nissan is going to build a…
If a 500bhp Cayenne Turbo isn't a good starting point for a tuner car, we don't know what is. Adding 50bhp and 96lb/ft of torque (for a total of 612lb/ft) the Titan BTR 550 should live up to it's monstrous name. In addition to the engine mods, the Titan benefits from a sports exhaust that's switchable between loud and…
Our friends over at PickupTruck.com have one heck of a big giveaway. One could even say it's a Titan-ic giveaway if one was predisposed to puns. Luckily we're not. But, whether punny or not, they're giving away a 2008 Nissan Titan PRO-4X Crew Cab. Only if you're the winner then it's a little bit more than just a stock…
The Japanese seem unable to make a home-market vehicle ad without surrealism and/or serious macho voiceovers, and we love them for it. This one shows the Mazda Titan flatbed miraculously loading an elephant in the back. Ti-TANN!
Whether or not Toyota's new Tundra turns the pickup market into its, uh, personal assistant, one thing's for sure: Nissan's screwed. Well, not screwed, per se, but most definitely in a bad spot. With sales falling off and questionable customer loyalty, the company's truck program will likely shrink even further into…
