2015 Nissan Cummins Turbo Diesel Titan

What happens when you give a 1500 truck a motor of a 2500? You get a 2015 Nissan Titan that delivers massive amounts of power and a company that takes advantage of competitor’s possible bad business decisions. Yes it seems that RAM trucks will no longer be able to offer a Cummins diesel as the corporate big wigs want the trucks to share the engines of its Italian diesel engine manufacturers VM Motori. For Nissan that leaves an opening to take the foreign brand and entice more Americans to take a look at the next generation Nissan. As both the engine and truck will be built on American soil we see that is really little to dislike about what the company is doing.

The 5.0 Cummins turbo diesel looks to deliver some impressive numbers like, around 300hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. This should make for a towing monster capable of a possible 20,000lb towing capacity. And with possible numbers such as these, you can bet that it is getting noticed by all the other truck manufacturers. It is Nissan’s way of saying that they are willing to deliver what customers are asking for such as diesel powertrains in 1500 type trucks and with other options you the potential customer has the option to really get the truck you want built without having to make too many exceptions.

With the second generation Nissan Titan sporting more cab and bed configurations along with engine options and an overall more fuel efficient capability means that we just might see Nissan grabbing back some market share from the other players. This feat won’t be easy due to the fact that Ford will still offer engines like the popular Ecoboost and RAM will offer an Eco-diesel engine option to entice those who wish to have a bit more fuel efficiency but it seems that the towing capabilities will go to the new Nissan Titan as this 5.0 liter will be placed more against the HEMI and larger displacement engines in the competition. If we look at the ability for manufacturers to deliver a wide realm of options such as these should make for an interesting read out as to what options buyers will go with.

For Nissan I believe that this is a smart move in order to grab more U.S. customers as many are familiar with the Cummins name and that since both engine and truck will be built here in the states means that there will be a great PR campaign for the 2nd-gen 2015 Nissan Titan. It is unclear as to what the up charge will be for such an engine but it appears that there will be a few individuals looking to make the switch over to Nissan for the first time ever.
