Why do I have a feeling that this is a troll that we've dealt with before?

Re: 2014 Titan?

No, I just saw this on the Nissan Commercial vehicles site and thought it may be hinting at whats to come. I hope not as its ugly but I want to ugrade my Frontier to a Titan in a couple years.

I really hope that's not what it's going to look like! If it is, I don't care if it has a Cummins in it, I won't be buying another Titan...

Re: 2014 Titan?

This is it: Nissan Titan | AutoGuide.com News

Quote:
Back in September, the US Department of Energy, in conjunction with Nissan Motor Co, green lighted a proposal to test a Cummins four-cylinder turbo-diesel in the full-size Titan pickup.

The program was largely conceived to help big trucks like the Titan achieve better fuel economy, in lieu of the 35.5 miles per gallon CAFE requirements (that now also include light trucks), scheduled to be phased in in 2015.

The test engine, a 2.8-liter unit cranks out 350 lb/ft of torque at 1800 rpm making it comparable with the Titan’s existing 5.6-liter V-8. However substantial gains in fuel economy have already been achieved, the diesel is said to currently allow a 2WD Titan to achieve around 28 miles per gallon, a sizeable improvement on the V-8 truck’s 13/18 mpg (city/highway).

Cummins says this new diesel can be built in either 2.8 and 3.5-liter forms and thanks to the use of high strength steel pistons, is not only a sturdy engine but also rather compact by diesel standards, not that compactness is of real concern when installing one in a Titan.

The test program is scheduled to run through September this year and it will be interesting to see what further results develop when it comes to capability and fuel economy. However, regulators are now proposing even tougher fuel economy standards for 2025, as much as 62 mpg. With such shifting targets, in such a short period time, the ability of any pickup truck manufacturer to meet them is going to prove challenging at best.



A $30 million federal- government grant, half funded by the Department of Energy is development of a high efficiency Cummins four-cylinder diesel engine to be used in the Nissan Titan.

This engine will allow the Titan to shed its guzzler status and become one of the most fuel-efficient full size pickup trucks on the market. This 2.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder will likely boast over 30 mpg on the highway and promises to deliver as much torque as small-displacement gasoline V-8s. The Cummins ISF engine is offered in 2.8 and 3.8-liter displacements is capable of 168-hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. This engine is being developed for use in the next generation 2015 Nissan Titan.




When Nissan finally gets around to replacing the Titan pickup truck, there’s a solid chance it will come with a diesel powerplant – at least as an option.

Previous reports had indicted that there was a possibility, but in a recent interview, Nissan product boss Larry Dominique gave his strongest endorsement yet, commenting that, “diesel is certainly something we are looking at for the next generation Titan.”

The interview was actually a part of Nissan’s “win a chance to be an auto show reporter” contest, and considering all the questions and answers were likely vetted and prepared, this adds more weight to Dominique’s remarks.

Further discussing the issue of diesels Dominique says the introduction of such a powerplant would be based on “consumer demand for greater fuel economy.” Commenting that most consumers tow under 8,000 lbs and don’t require 800 lb-ft of torque, don’t look for a Heavy Duty diesel-powered Titan in the future. “Small displacement diesels or mid-size displacement diesels are certainly something we’d consider,” says Dominique.

Since a partnership with Chrysler fell through on the next-gen Titan, company execs have remained committed to the idea, but we’re not likely to see a second-generation of the Nissan pickup until at least 2014.

Re: 2014 Titan? Diesel

Most trucks being marketed around the globe have diesel engines.
All through Europe, South Africa, Austrailia and Asia, the diesel engine is the defacto standard. Whether it is Nissan, Toyota, Ford etc., they all have diesels that are sold everywhere else but not here in the U.S.A.

Why manufacturers have declined to offer their efficient new diesels to the American market is a real unanswered question. A diesel engine provides what trucks need most....a big fat torque curve from idle up to redline plus reliabilty and fuel efficiency.

If diesels were able to run with a mix of ethanol, as can gasoline engines, we might have already seen many more diesel engines. I've always wondered if there was any connection where politicians would lose corn farmer votes if they pushed for more diesel vehicles and fuels. As more diesel fuel is used, there would probably be a corresponding drop in the use of gasoline/ethanol fuel and the ethanol producers would not be happy.

Re: 2014 Titan?

I kinda hope the new one looks like that...that way the Gen 1's won't be outshined . Besides if the Gen 2 looks too good I might have to trade yet another vehicle

Diesel is not that popular in the US. It's also been about 40-50 cents more per gallon than regular unleaded for 4 or 5 years now, which completely negates the extra gallon or two you get in mileage. The torque curve is nice but today's diesels are ridiculous to fix. I have a fleet of trucks at work and repair bills for the Ford diesels make your head spin. I just spent almost $2k replacing the injector assemblies on one of the 2007's that we have. Our fleet is about 1/2 diesel and half gas, and all of the guys prefer driving the gas engine trucks.
