The Titan XD has been nominated in AutoGuide's "2016 Truck of the Year" competition. The truck stands out from its competitors because of its new Cummins turbo-diesel engine, a 5.0-liter V8 that is good for 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque, and also its 'XD' classification denoting that it is the heavy duty version and technically a class 2b pickup truck.
The article summarizes the Titan as such:
