Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel
We’re pleased to announce that Nissan will offer a newly-developed Cummins V8 turbo diesel in its next generation full-size pickup.
Now in the latter stages of development and testing, the available Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine has been optimized for the next generation Titan as a result of the partnership between Cummins and Nissan. Cummins also is developing a version of the engine for commercial vehicle customers.
This new engine will offer the right balance of power, performance and fuel economy while delivering the dependability that customers expect. With a torque rating in the mid-500s (lb-ft) and more than 300 horsepower, the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel will provide light truck customers the combination of towing capacity and mileage that is expected in the highly-competitive North American truck marketplace.
The Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel will be built at the Columbus Engine Plant in Columbus, Ind., the home of Cummins headquarters. This plant has the latest technological innovations to continue the 90-plus year tradition of building the highest quality Cummins engines.
For competitive reasons, Nissan is not announcing launch dates at this stage in the truck’s development. Further information on the upcoming Titan truck and Cummins engine will be released at a later date.
