Rumors are that Nissan is adding a new player to the diesel truck market with a Cummins Diesel V8 in their Titan

Engine is rumored to make 300hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. That would mean Nissan would have the torquiest light duty truck in America.

Sound attractive?

I read In and article some where, that Nissan did this because there truck sales were way down, and people have been wanting a Diesel in a light duty pick up for quite some time. Also I heard Nissan took a big gamble with Cummins on this deal and the cost of the engine was quite high.

I think Dodge just blew them out of the water with there 3.0L It has more torque then Dodges first 5.9L
Its because previous RAM CEO Fred Diaz was working with Cummins to get a light duty Cummins diesel in a light duty RAM (what I really wanted). But then FIAT bought Chrysler (and Ram with it) and Fiat killed the Cummins diesel in favor of their own italian diesel (which is a nice motor too). [/QUOTE ]

Yes your absolutely right. It will be interesting to see what the price of the Nissan will be with the Cummins. The price for the Dodge is very affordable and people look at price not loyalty. Hope this VM motor is a good one. Dodge doesn't need problems with there Diesel. Cummins made Dodge what they are today.
