It looks like the 2019 Nissan Titan XD is about to come with some revisions on its diesel engine. After years of waiting, the new version of the capable truck finally came three years ago.
It was supposed to second-generation Titan feature the same design as new Ram 1500 and be its a re-badged version. Due to 2008 financial crisis, it never happened. So, Nissan designed its own truck, which was finally introduced in late 2015.
The new model comes in two versions, and one of them is a so-called XD variant, which features stronger frame and optional diesel engine. Although this diesel version outperforms other light-duty rivals, it is not strong enough to compete with heavy duty models. The company wants to change this state, so 2019 Titan XD is about to get a revised engine, which will provide more power and torque.
2019 Nissan Titan XD engines
Just like we’ve mentioned, there are some revisions to come on the optional diesel engine, if we can trust those unofficial reports.
At the moment, XD diesel features a 5.0-liter Cummins engine that is good for about 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. This version is excellent for towing and other hard tasks but on the other side, acceleration is not so impressive. This version needs around 9.5 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. For the next year, both power and torque should be increased. The latter one should go up to 600 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, the base 2019 Nissan Titan XD will feature a familiar 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine, which is good enough for about 390 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. This version would be a far better choice if you prefer speed and acceleration over utility.
2019 Nissan Titan XD redesign
While the diesel engine should come with revisions, rest of the truck will most likely continue without bigger changes. The 2019 Nissan Titan XD will continue with a familiar design.
Compared to standard Titan, it features a sturdier frame, borrowed from Nissan’s commercial vehicle NV. The truck will be available in several variants, with different cab designs and bed sizes. On the other side, visual appearance is pretty much the same as on the standard version of the truck. There is a Nissan’s familiar design language, which is in use for several others SUV and trucks of the company’s lineup.
Same thing about the interior. The 2019 Nissan Titan XD will come with a spacious cabin, full of equipment and with plenty of hi-quality materials.
2019 Nissan Titan XD trim levels
This is another aspect where 2019 Nissan Titan XD won’t feature bigger changes. The base trim level organization will remain the same. There are several versions in the offer, starting from the work-oriented S and SV trims, which feature those most basic pieces of equipment.
The off-road oriented Pro-4X comes with various additions for better off-road performances, like all-terrain tires, two-speed transfer case, new suspension and much more.
On the other side, a mid-range SL is more road-oriented. It seems like the most rational version when we balance between standard equipment and amount of money you need to spend on it.
Finally, there is a top-range, comfort-oriented Platinum Reserve trim. It comes with a full load of standard equipment, but also with many new visual details.
2019 Nissan Titan XD release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Titan XD should come in usual time, which means somewhere late in the year. We don’t expect bigger changes in price, so base models should keep going around 32.000 dollars.
