Right now the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the only diesel-powered light duty truck sold in the United States. It only makes sense that after its huge success other car makers would want to join the party.
Next year Nissan will be launching its Titan pickup truck, which will receive a Cummins diesel V8 engine. The truck will be unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January, so says Nissan spokesman Dan Bedore.
There have been no official figures released but the V8 engine should generate more than 300 horsepower and a torque output somewhere in the mid-500s.
Its unlikely that the Titan's Cummins engine will beat the Ram EcoDiesel's 28 miles per gallon, but it should have superior towing capability.
