In what Nissan calls the first chapter of the Titan truckumentary, the Japanese brand kicked off the series with Fred Diaz and a plethora of older trucks.

Still, fingers crossed the next vid will be a lil' better.

Until that moment comes, we can tell you a few details about the long-awaited 2016 Titan and the much-rumoured Cummins turbo diesel the full-size workhorse packs under its square-ish bonnet.

Other than that, we rely only on previous information: to debut at the Detroit Auto Show on January 12th, next year, the new Nissan Titan will be truly all-American from head to toe.

Designed in California, engineered in Michigan, tested in Arizona, assembled in Mississippi and powered by engines from Indiana and Tennessee, the 2016 Titan may wear a Nissan badge, but it's born in the U S of A.

Boasting a slightly more accomodating cabin than ever, the new Titan will be powered by a 5-liter Cummins ISV turbo diesel with two chargers, expected to churn out 300-plus horsepower and 550 lb-ft (745 Nm).
