Titan XD 5.6 Endurance V8 0-60 video

Well it looks like someone may have found an XD with the gasser. Obviously under the radar and I expect the video to be taken down. Seems about 2sec quicker 0-60 and he also posted a 60-90 runs as well. Take a close look at the average fuel economy, if it's true, then the diesel is in for more trouble with the current numbers it's getting. Trans shifts pretty snappy on the 7speed.

Enjoy:

Links don't work for me but I think I found what you are talking about. At 60 MPH, the trucks was running 1600 RPM.
with 33" tires and a 0.78 7th gear, this means that the Rear end ratio is the same 3.35:1 used in the upcoming Armada.

"Armadas equipped with the system will come with an electronically controlled part-time transfer case and a 3.35:1 4L gear ratio."

0-60 in about 7 seconds on a 7000?? lb truck. Looks like a beast.
Nice find

Even more impressive is the 11 second 0-80 mph time. 3rd gear just maxes out at 80 mph allowing to match the 6100 lb Qx-80 time from what I have seen.
I am thinking the Titan XD got one **** of a diet with the gas 7-speed combo.

Nice find!
I watched that vid several times with a stop watch and I'm getting about 6.5 sec to 60 and 9.5 seconds to 75mph. IF that is truly a XD, then I'm extremely impressed. That is FAST for a 6800-7000lb truck (guessing here obviously)

That is a 14.5-14.8 sec 1/4 mile time. With it shifting twice just to hit 60mph I'd imagine it has the same 3.92 axle gear as the ISV.

Hopefully it wasn't filmed going down hill.

I think its the standard titan. It woukd take a lot more hp to move a 7400lb truck like that. But a 5600lb truck is lighter than the new armada and qx80.

It could be, but I would think the new Titan would be around 5500 lb or less. The gas XD MIGHT be less than 7000 lb due to the lighter engine/ transmission.
These are close to the 6100 lb QX-80 times and that truck had very tall 2.94 gears. It really could be either truck

The awesome part is that, this was done in drive which by far the slowest way to make 0-60 passes. would be much quicker with manual shifts!!
