This video shows a camouflaged Titan prototype going through a variety of durability testing exercises.

Research

Like before when we spied the 2016 Nissan Titan testing, we can see that this new pickup grows in size and displays an imposing front end. In fact, it appears that the Titan may almost exceed the typical size of a half-ton pickup, sitting somewhere between a 1500 truck and a heavy-duty. A large grille with a prominent Nissan badge dominates the front end, and the overall profile of the truck remains somewhat similar to the current Nissan Titan, which debuted all the way back in 2003.

In terms of powertrains, the 2016 Nissan Titan will likely offer a gas V-8 in addition to the 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V-8 that's already confirmed for this pickup. We don't know how many different configurations Nissan will offer, but the Titan in the video is a crew cab model with what looks like a long-bed option. Nissan will surely be targeting domestic trucks like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 in terms of towing and hauling numbers, so expect the 2016 Nissan Titan to be competitive, especially when equipped with the powerful diesel which is expected to pump out more than 300 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.

Nissan will roll out more teaser videos in December as part of its "Truckumentary" series before the final, production-ready 2016 Nissan Titan is revealed at the Detroit auto show in January 2015. Keep an eye out for more news about this redesigned pickup in the meantime.
