We live in America! And in America, bigger is almost always better. So I was pretty excited when the 2016 Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve showed up in our driveway.


The Nissan Titan XD is BIG – just check out the truck front-to-rear with my 2001 Dodge Dakota Crew Cab 4X4 SLT.


2016 Nissan Titan XD AWD Platinum Reserve


It has everything a truck lover like me would ever want. (And apparently, what a woman would want as well!) And just what is it that a trucker would like about this vehicle?

Well, check out my video review below:

The truck has a Cummins 5.0 Liter V8 Dual Stage Turbo Diesel engine and a Bosch HPCR fuel system. The engine is compacted graphite iron and generates 310 HP @ 3200 rpm and 555 lb-ft of torque @1600 rpm. As you can see … lots of power!

It has over 2,000 lb payload with over 12,000 lb towing capacity.

I haven’t been in a diesel vehicle for a number of years, but my memories of them are of loud knocking diesel engines. They just don’t run as quietly as gasoline engines. Diesel engines have historically been lower powered than gasoline engines.

But after driving this for a week, I’m sold! The engine is very quiet for a diesel and it really had great pickup – more than I thought was possible from a diesel.

The price on the truck was not finalized on the paperwork we received as it was a brand new model. But you can expect to pay around $60,000 for it.

So if you haven’t driven a diesel truck lately, I highly recommend the 2016 Nissan Titan XD AWD Platinum Reserve!

I’m 100% certain that if you like trucks, you’re going to love this one. 🙂
