Titan Turbo Diesel Prototype was Recently Spied Testing
If you missed the original spy shots that released in October 2014, you can see them HERESpy photographers caught some shots of a 2016 Nissan Titan Prototype testing its turbo diesel engine on public roads. The prototype is in heavy camouflage, so we don't really get too much new information.
The Nissan Titan will run on a new Cummins turbo-diesel engine. It is a 5.0-liter V8 engine that has about 300 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.
The 2016 Nissan Titan will be available in crew cab, extended cab and regular cab variants. Production should start in September 2015.
Can you glean any new or interesting information from these spy shots?

Expected Gas Mileage/MPG
What are you expecting city/highway/combined mileage to be like?
_____________________For the RAM 1500 Diesel, I remember reading that it's highway mileage was around 28mpg, not bad for the 30-liter V6 it comes with.
I came across a source that's suggesting the new Titan Diesel should get around 24mpg highway.
Although it would be great to get more mpg's, like the RAM Diesel V6, knowing that we are getting Cummins V8 makes me feel better as Cummins engines are known to be very reliable.

_____________________The turbo-diesel V8 engine in the next generation Titan will have a new two-stage turbine unit developed jointly by Cummins and Nissan. The new design will help to reduce lag, generate more low end torque, and deliver smoother transitions between low and high rpm.The new turbine unit uses a Holcet turbo with new Rotary Turbine Control (RTC). This shunts the exhaust gases in various modes to optimize emissions or power depending on what you need.
Nissan to unveil Cummins Diesel Titan at Detroit Auto Show
As great as the January 2015 debut sounds, it will be 4 years later than the Titan was originally supposed to be released. More about that HERENissan has announced that it will unveil its Cummins diesel powered Titan pickup at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January.
The road to the 2015 Titan debut hasn't been an easy one. In fact, the January 2015 debut will be 4 years later than the Titan was originally supposed to be released.
Nissan was in partnership with Chrysler Group to produce a version of Chrysler's under-development new Ram pickup. That plan went under when Chrysler entered into bankruptcy reorganization in 2009.
Nissan then had to start over again all on its own to develop a fully redesigned full-size truck. They really had to start from scratch too since the last Titan never really sold that well. With rivals just recently releasing updates or redesigns to the market, Nissan has to make sure it gets it right.
