The 2016 Nissan TITAN XD has been named the 2015 Truck of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) in its annual 2015 Texas Truck Rodeo.
In addition to the competition’s top award, Truck of Texas, the new TITAN XD won three other honors: Luxury Pickup Truck of Texas, Off-Road Pickup Truck of Texas and Best Powertrain for its standard Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine. The 2016 Nissan TITAN XD stands out in a unique position in the segment between traditional heavy-duty and light-duty entries. The design of the truck combines the capability of a heavy-duty hauler with the drivability and affordability of a light-duty pickup and is anchored by a powerful 310-horsepower Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel and a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission.
The event puts the industry’s best truck, SUVs and CUVs through a grueling two-day evaluation. The 2016 TITAN XD was cited for its strong performance and also received high marks for its interior and exterior. The TITAN is scheduled to go on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in December.
