The 2016 Nissan Titan and Titan XD, utes, which are said to be in a class of its own when it comes to bold design, power, drivability, and affordability are set to make their much awaited debut to the US market this summer. Powered by the Japanese company’s 5.6 Endurance V8 engine that is well capable of producing 390 horse power and 401 pound feet of torque, this humongous vehicle is set to capture a huge piece of the United State’s growing pickup market–one–that has been dominated by Ford, General Motors, and Chevrolet. Nissan sold 12,140 Titan units last year, but this figure is set to increase this year with a much-improved Titan.
After the announcement, many have been wondering what the Titan and Titan XD upgrades are and while Nissan didn’t get to the details, they rest assured that they are under a new class of utes. “There is a very good family resemblance between (the Titan and the Titan XD,” said Rich Miller, Nissan’s director of product planning in North America. “The bed, the cabin and the interior are shared.”
While American truck enthusiasts are raving about the release of the much awaited Titan and Titan XD, this cannot be said about their Australian counterparts since the mentioned trucks are unlikely to be sold in the “Land Down Under.”
Nissan went outside the box when they announced the arrival of the Titan as well as the Titan XD in Chicago. The company which introduced the all-new Armada at a private event advertised pictures of the Titan at the Chicago Auto Show that took place from February 13 to 21.
So there, the 2016 Nissan Titan and Titan XD are set to shake up the US market’s highly competitive pick up sector with their bold design, relentless power, and everything in between. Those who are from Australia would have to keep their fingers crossed and wait a little longer since–to them–this year is not the year of Titan.
