All-new Nissan TITAN XD full-size pickup production begins
Ever since its introduction in 2003, Nissan has built its Titan trucks at its Canton, Mississippi, plant, a relatively small town north of the state capital that’s home to about 13,000. Nissan recently released a video showing the pride and history of the plant and its importance to Nissan’s truck line.

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.

Nissan to Equip Next-Generation Titan Pickup with New Cummins Tu
Back in late 2013, Nissan announced some big news when it said its next-generation full-sized pickup would feature a Cummins V8 turbo diesel engine. At the time, only limited details were shared, such as the fact that it will be a 5.0-liter V8 born of a partnership between Nissan and Cummins, that the new motor will feature a horsepower rating of more than 300 and a torque rating in the 500 lb-ft range, and that there will be a commercial vehicle option as well.
