Japanese carmaker Nissan made an announcement according to which the company will offer a new Cummins V8 turbo diesel to power the next-generation full-size pickup. Now, the 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel has been optimized for the next generation Titan thanks to the partnership between Cummins and Nissan. The new unit is capable of generating 300 horsepower and 500 lb. ft. of torque which will provide light truck customers the perfect combination between towing capacity and mileage that is expected in the highly-competitive North American truck market place. The new unit will be built at the Columbus Engine Plant in Columbus.
This plant has the latest technological innovations to continue the 90-plus year tradition of building high quality engines. The program was led by teams from the Nissan America headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee. The engineering part, ut also the testing sessions have been led by Nissan Technical Center North America in Farmington Hills in Michigan and Stanfield, Arizona. Here we also have to mention the Global Engineering center of Nisan. In terms of design Nissan Design America did a great job. This center is located in La Jolla, California.
The next generation Nissan Titan will be built in Mississippi. Here is vehicle assembly plant and its gasoline engine cast, forged and assembled at the power train plant in Tennessee. The bad news is that the Japanese carmaker will not announce the date of the launch at this stage of the development process. The thing is that trucks powered by engines developed by Cummins are now under testing on public-highway performance and durability testing. We will have more details on the entire process in the next few weeks.
