2016 Nissan Titan XD’s Classification is Hard to Define – In the Best Way

There’s a lot to love about the handsome, rugged, and powerful 2016 Nissan Titan HD–but the thing that may attract the most buyers is its classification (or lack thereof). Thanks to the Titan’s 5.0L V8 Cummins engine that puts out 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque, and a steel frame that’s more powerful than most ½-ton models, the XD technically falls somewhere between ½-ton and ¾-ton classifications.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD boasts the efficiency of a diesel engine, but maintains the power to tow a massive 12,000 pounds, making it the best of both worlds. According to trucktrend.com, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD’s classification falls somewhere between a V8 gas-powered ½-ton and a diesel-powered ¾-ton, offering a completely new option for truck enthusiasts looking for efficiency and power, not one or the other.

Add to the XD’s power and efficiency a rugged, athletic design, and a modern, comfortable, and spacious interior, and you have a workhorse of a pickup that can also handle a daily commute and long family road trips without breaking the bank.

Here at Blackburn Nissan, we can’t wait to get our hands on the 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Look for more details, including official fuel economy numbers and pricing, to be released later this year!
