Nissan Titan To Be Offered With A V6 Engine, Will Debut In The Frontier First 28

The pickup wars are heating up and Nissan North America’s senior vice president of product planning has hinted the Titan will eventually be offered with a V6 engine.

Speaking to Wards Auto, Michael Bunce said “A new Frontier is on its way and a V6 is more geared toward that segment.” However, he added “Both [trucks] are built in the same plant in Mississippi, so that opportunity is being looked at for Titan also.” Bunce declined to say when we can expect the engine to be offered in the Titan but he suggested the V6 will likely debut in the Frontier first.

Little is known about the upcoming engine but Nissan expects it to appeal to companies and consumers who are looking for a work truck and don’t need the power of a V8. The V6 model should also be more affordable than the V8 variant which starts at $29,580.

While Titan sales are nowhere near rivals such as the Ford F-150 or Chevrolet Silverado, Bunce said the company is “fully behind” the Titan.

When asked about the possible return of the Xterra, Bunce said Nissan is “very, very closely” looking at the segment and noted the model could appeal to male Millennials. He went on to describe the Xterra as a “great asset” which could be utilized in the future.

2018 Nissan Terra Looks Like A Worthy Successor To The Xterra 14

We first got a glimpse at the Nissan Terra last month and now we’re a better look at the model thanks to several new imagines that were reportedly taken in China.

Essentially a passenger-friendly version of the NP300 Navara, the Terra is a stylish and rugged body-on-frame SUV that features a prominent V-Motion grille. We can also see angular headlights, bulging fender flares, and plenty of chrome trim.

Moving further back, the Terra features curvaceous bodywork and a distinctive greenhouse with a small kick up on the rear doors. The rear of the model is pretty plain as there’s a large tailgate with chrome trim and wraparound taillights.

Little is known about the model but Autocentre says the SUV will be offered with a 2.5-liter petrol engine which produces 184 hp (137 kW). In other countries, the Terra is expected to be equipped with a 2.3-liter dCi turbodiesel engine that has outputs of 158 hp (118 kW) and 187 hp (140 kW).

The Terra is expected to be unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show and it will be launched in China. The model will likely be offered in additional markets but there’s no word on specifics.
