Go Inside the 2016 Nissan TITAN XD’s Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel Engine

The all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD debuted at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January and with it so did the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine which features a unique Cummins M²™ Two-Stage Turbocharger and is configured to work well at both low and high engine speeds.

“We are excited to have Cummins as a partner to launch the new TITAN XD. The Indiana-made Cummins 5.0L V8 is a perfect fit for our truck that was designed in California, engineered in Detroit, and will be assembled in Mississippi,” said Rich Miller, chief product specialist, TITAN, Nissan North America, Inc. “The 2016 TITAN reflects the passion that both Nissan and Cummins employees have toward their heritage as truck people. We collectively know what we would want in our own truck and pulled together all of those traits into one unbeatable package that we are thrilled to finally show the world.”
