Leading up to last week’s Detroit Auto Show, Nissan teased truck owners with the enticing news of a new Cummins diesel designed specifically for its next-generation Titan truck. At its press conference during the North American International Auto Show, Nissan finally took the tarp off its new Titan XD, the truck that will harness the power of this new 5.0-liter Cummins motor.
Ford really kept the lid on its second-generation Raptor leading up to the Detroit Auto Show.

Toyota went to great lengths to get the word out on its all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, which was unveiled during its world premiere at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Toyota showed the unveiling live on the Web, hosted a live chat with Chief Engineer Mike Sweers after the introduction, and the company also teased the truck world with images just prior to the show.
Among the many truck-related announcements today, Toyota made headlines when it unveiled the all-new 2016 Tacoma at the Detroit Auto Show this afternoon. As we reported earlier, the new Tacoma will have two engine options for 2016 that include a 2.7-liter four-cylinder gasoline motor and a new 3.5-liter V6. But many have wondered whether Toyota would offer a diesel option, maybe something based on the overseas diesel that powers the Hilux.
The wait is over. Toyota gave us a glimpse of the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma recently, but we weren’t given any details about this truck other than a few looks at the exterior. Toyota will be unveiling this new truck today at its press conference at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, and you can watch all the action here.
