Default We may have Nissan owners here at Cumminsownerz.com before long

Looks like Nissan stole the Cummins engine that people thought the Ram 1500 would get.

Quote:
It's official: Nissan Vice President of Sales and Marketing Fred Diaz announced that the new relationship with Cummins Inc. will begin with the next-generation Nissan Titan full-size half-ton pickup truck. The Cummins, in final stages of development, will be rated more than 300 horsepower and roughly 550 pounds-feet of torque, Nissan said.

Nissan has not announced whether that will be a 2015 or 2016 model, but it's good to hear news like this because it implies Nissan is serious about significantly improving the worst-selling half-ton in the U.S. marketplace.

I think that might be a little heavy/big for a 1/2 ton pick up v6 would be better. Anybody else think so?

I welcome diesels in as many models as possible and I hope people love them and see the efficiency/longevity benefits and lobby for loosening of some of the crazy emissions restrictions!

When I saw the 300HP/550 FTLBS torque numbers it sure sounded more like a 3/4 ton then a 1/2 ton truck but hey what do I know?

As for the site, you and I both know the new owners are going to want to talk to us bloodied 6.7L owners since we've paid our dues.

I saw this picture a couple of months ago and it sure looked like a cummins was in the truck with the extended passenger side fender and air hole below the light.



Here's the article.

" "Truck owners told us there's a demand for the performance and torque of a diesel in a capable truck that doesn't require the jump up to a heavy-duty commercial pickup," said Fred Diaz, Nissan's U.S. sales and marketing chief." But with the power they are rumored to have that will take a heavy duty truck like a 3/4 ton to tame that engine just like the 6.7 350 hp 600 ft.tq. they don't put the 6.7 in a 1/2 ton to much weight and power I'd be a little leery of buying one of those not a strong enough truck. I'm betting they come out with a heavy duty truck line but call it a 1/2 ton

sure is a homly truck! I to welcome more diesel trucks on the market, but I hope it does not drive up the price at the pump due to a higher demand in 5 or so years.

It is a damned shame that Ram was not allowed to go this route. The Cummins would have been an instant success and they could have promoted all the the models together. There is no way that the Italian engine has the same recognition here in North America.

the Nissan should be a v6 not a v8. Unless there is a bunch of aluminum in it I think it will be too heavy . They might build it to be in between the 1/2 and 3/4 size trucks.
