Don't know how much of this rumor has been disgused, but every since hearing about somebody spotting a heavier version beingh tested in a post yesterday I thought I would search around and find what rumors exist.

In another article in this months Truck Trend magazine that I picked up today, they confirmed that it was reported in a trade paper in Japan that Nissan has signed a deal with Navistar(who makes Fords diesel) to produce a small diesel for an upcoming Titan 1/2 ton and are saying the new engine may presumably be a V6 turbodiesel. Trucktrend is saying that it is likely a 2010 release as is the new Altima diesel.

Just thought I would share

I have been around this block but if all you 08 owners will look at the info center control knob on the insturment panel. At the 2 o' clock position about a half inch up you WILL see a the universal glow plug symbol screening on the guage surface.

Hooligan, what do you mean by LTD? Long Travel Diesel? Thanks :)

I'd have no concerns about a Navistar (International) Diesel. We have 2 at work, and they are great engines, trouble free. Yes, totally different blocks than a Titan will see, but they have made millions of engines, try to not overly associate Navistar with being bad, just because of Ford's interaction with the application in their trucks. Many finger pointers between the 2, but I trust the new design would be a durable one. I'd expect same HP, much more TQ and especially better economy, the main advantage.
Long-Travel suspension on a titan with the diesel engine. would be a beast. i'm also wondering just how much bigger/better the rear axle will be. btw, we've got several hundred trucks with IH engines in them with WELL over 200,000 and some close to 300,000 and they see abuse. are they trouble-free. pretty much. stay on top of maintenence and they're built to last. its the tranny, clutch and rear axle issues that usually get hit first. the new trucks in the fleet are now CTD's with Mercedes Benz engine covers, LOL, but the IH's have been exceptional, so i can imagine anything the Titan gets is gonna be a good one!
