Wholly made and developed in the U.S.A., the next-generation Titan pickup was designed in California, engineered in Michigan and tested in Arizona, will be assembled in Mississippi and powered by gasoline engines made in Tennessee. As a bonus, there will also be diesel-powered Cummins V8 engine that hails from Indiana.

Externally, Nissan provided an image that shows heavily-camouflaged front end and a blackened flatbed. Currently, it has a black grill, a wide bumper and large front fenders.

The 5.0-liter Cummins diesel V8

Nissan did not gave specifics about the gasoline engines being made in Tennessee that but the company did gave a few facts about the 5.0-liter Cummins V8 diesel engine. The Cummins engine will be available in the future for other commercial vehicle customers and according to Nissan, they will be the only company to put a V8 diesel engine onto a 1500 truck since spec-wise, it'll be more powerful than common 1500 trucks, but not as powerful as 2500 trucks.
