Nissan is gearing up for a show at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show by revealing the second generation full-size Titan, which is being built to take on today’s offerings from GM, Ford, Chrysler, and Toyota.
Being teased in Nissan’s latest Truckumentary webisodes on YouTube, one of the highlights of the new Titan is a new Cummins-sourced 5.0L light-duty V8 turbodiesel, which joins the Dodge Ram 1500 EcoDiesel in terms of offering light-duty diesel pickups.
The video tracks back Nissan’s history as a truck maker and it’s just about as storied as one from Toyota or any other brand. In fact, old Nissan pickups are still seen trotting about in some of the harshest places on earth, right beside their Toyota counterparts. So they are no stranger to the pickup either.
Check out what they mean in the video after the jump along with a press statement.
