As for the appearance of the new Nissan Titan XD, first of all it expresses excellent style and reliability. It should be noted that the updated car is a real miniature truck, which is designed for the transport of heavy goods. Perhaps, that is why the Japanese engineers focused on the dimensions. In particular, immediately throwing huge headlights, which are perfectly combined with a stylish grille. Overall design picture is complemented by exterior doors and rear-view mirrors.

Improved interior

The salon of the new pickup completely corresponds to the general parameters of the car, so there is enough space for both the driver and the numerous passengers. Of course, the beautiful finish attracts attention, but the functional component is also at a height.  In particular, the front is a modern instrument panel, the main element of which is a multimedia system with a 5-inch display.

Nissan Titan XD 2016 With Powerful Diesel

First of all, it should be noted that the Japanese pickup received a universal diesel engine, whose power is 310 horsepower, and the volume – 5 liters. In addition, this power plant can boast of a double turbo, which adds speed to the car. According to Japanese engineers, the operation of such an engine will significantly reduce fuel consumption, which, undoubtedly, will attract potential car buyers.

However, despite these words, in some versions of the updated Nissan Titan XD, the diesel engine will be replaced with a gasoline power unit, which is less powerful. It can be assumed that as a supplement to these power units, the new Nissan Titan XD will receive a 6-speed automatic transmission, which showed itself well during the tests. Of course, the story about the technical capabilities of the car will be incomplete if we bypass the significantly updated brake system, modern strengthened frame, improved engine and transmission cooling system, as well as universal suspension, which has been substantially refined by Japanese engineers.
