BREAKING: Next Gen Titan 5.6L Endurance V8 Announced

Time to clear up some confusion about how the new Titan, the Titan XD, and the configurations for each (FINALLY!)

The Titan XD has been all over truck news for nearly a year. It turns out, this is one of two Titans that will hit the market. A smaller, half ton version of the Titan (a more linear successor to the current truck) will be offered later in 2016, complete with a gas-powered V6 and a gas-powered V8 in the lineup of offerings from Nissan.

Some believed that the Titan XD ("medium" duty Titan) would be offered with only the Cummins Diesel V8, and Nissan announced yesterday that this was not the case when they unveiled the Titan XD complete with the next generation Endurance V8. Though carrying the same displacement as the outgoing motor, it shares very little with its predecessor - it will be a DOHC, Direct Injected, Longitudinally mounted aluminum alloy V8 producing 390hp (up from 315hp) @ 5,800 RPM and 401lb-ft of torque (up from 385lb-ft) @ 4,000 RPM. The valvetrain utilizes Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) and Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL), two technologies utilized first on the VQ37VHR found in the 370Z.

The truck will get a new 7 Speed Automatic transmission with downshift rev matching technology to complete the package. The final bit of news is that the truck will only require regular unleaded gasoline.

What do you think?

If you walk up to this truck, you will quickly realize that there is nothing Mazda about it. It is MASSIVE.

I think I like it.

I'm betting the engine will be the (proven) VK56VD that we know from Infiniti products (and Nissan Patrol) tuned to run Regular fuel.

Does anyone know anything about the Aisin 6-speed transmission referenced in some of the recent videos?

Looks too much like a Ford. And needs a solid front axle. And more ground clearance. And a manual transmission.
