Drive Wire: Nissan Titan Engines Will Be Made in the U.S.A.
Turning to the world of high-powered trucks, Nissan has released the numbers for the new V8 in its Titan pickup. It’s a 5.6 liter unit called the Endurance Engine, and it puts out a thumping 390 horsepower and 401 foot-pounds of torque. That’s a decent amount to be sure, achieved through variable valve timing and a nice high 11.2:1 compression ratio. Also nice is that the engines will be built in Tennessee at Nissan’s Deckerd plant, which seems only right for a pickup.
