Nissan presented the Titan XD at the Detroit auto show. The car has towing capacity of more than 5,440 kg and a payload of more than 905 kg, with the engine being equipped with a sequential twin-turbo system.
The twin-turbo system is called Holset M2 Two-Stage System and it consists of two turbos, one small and one larger, with the small one to provide power at low speeds and the large one, at the middle and high speeds, providing better torque distribution. The system has an electrically controlled rotary valve which directs the flow of gas in one of the two turbos, depending on load and engine speed. The system promises to offer a smooth torque curve, as well as reduced power consumption with lower CO2 emissions.
The Titan XD is equipped with a new 5,0-liter V8 turbodiesel Cummins engine producing 310 hp and 752 Nm of torque with sales to begin in the second half of 2015.
It will be offered in crew cab, single cab and a “King Cab” version, but with three different trunk lengths. It features LED lights, 5 inch color touch screen, 12 speakers, navigation system with a larger screen and much more.
