Nissan knows pickup truck enthusiats can't hardly wait for the 2016 Titan to be unveiled so the Japanese manufacturer provided us with a video teaser of what the near future holds for the Titan.
Just gaze into Nissan's crystal ball and just about everything will become clear for you. According to what our spy photographers got to snap until now, there won't be any notable visual differences between the 2016 Titan and the first-gen of the full-size truck.
Okay, there will be a minor restyling of the front fascia and some new ligths front and rear, but don't expect anything more than that. We're utmost certain the cabin was rigorously botoxed by the automaker's designers if you take into consideration how inviting the interior of the 2015 Ford F-150 is.

This isn't a traditional twin-turbo setup, but a sequential system known as the Holset M2 Two-Stage. There's also a Rotary Turbine Control thingy, with further info on it available in a previous story.
In the video below you'll also get a glimpse on the 2016 Nissan Titan chassis and drive shaft, but let's be frank here – if this new Cummins is going to return over 28 miles per gallon (8.4 liters per 100 kilometers), it will definitely surpass the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and also provide better towing and hauling capability.
Let's wait patiently until the Detroit Auto Show opens its doors on January 12th because that's when the crystal ball will share all the secrets the 2016 Nissan Titan holds in store for us. #CumminsSoon
