2016 Nissan TITAN XD makes world debut at Detroit Auto Show
I have to admit I like the new design of the Nissan Titan a lot better than the old one.
Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn unveiled the all-new 2016 TITAN XD at the Detroit Auto Show this week. This is Nissan’s bid to make an aggressive return to the full-size pickup segment. This new truck was created specifically with American consumers in mind. You can see in some ways the styling has a more traditional front grille though it definitely has some Nissan flair to it as well. The new TITAN sports a Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel and aims at a “new class” of full-size truck between current heavy-duty and light-duty offerings.
The with core planning, design and engineering of the new truck was conducted in Tennessee, California, Michigan and Arizona, and it will be assembled in Mississippi, with engines from Tennessee and Indiana.
Ford Atlas Pickup Truck Concept at NAIAS
Ford today unveiled the Ford Atlas Concept at the North America International Auto Show in Detroit. The Ford Atlas Concept was built to showcase the design, capability, fuel efficiency and smart technologies that will define future pickup trucks.
One of the more memorable unveilings at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show was another monster pickup truck from Ford. The Ford Atlas Concept give us a look at the potential future if the flagship Ford F-150. To say that Ford was aiming for a muscular and rugged design would be an understatement. The front grille in particular stood out as particularly bold. The Atlas Concept also sports the next-generation EcoBoost engine.
