2018 Nissan Titan XD engine

CUMMINS® TURBO DIESEL

The new, available Cummins® 5.0 L V8 Turbo Diesel is the heart of the TITAN®XD. This powerhouse of an engine delivers heavy-duty attitude and torque, and does it with impressive efficiency.


TWO STAGE TURBO

Say goodbye to turbo lag. The Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel gets a continuous power boost right through the RPM range, thanks to a first-to-market Holset M2 two-stage turbocharger. You get solid acceleration from the second you put your foot down until you get up to speed.

HIGH PRESSURE COMMON RAIL (HPCR) FUEL SYSTEM

Forget everything you've ever heard from a diesel engine. The new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel is outfitted with the latest Bosch®HPCR fuel system and piezo-style injectors to deliver precise fuel control and multiple injections per combustion stroke, which increases efficiency and drastically cuts down on 'diesel clatter'.

QUIETER ENGINE

Tough doesn't have to sound rough. The compacted graphite iron cylinder block and dual overhead camshafts contribute to the excellent noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) characteristics achieved by the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine.

RESPONSIVE DOHC

The high-revving Turbo Diesel uses Dual Overhead Cams (DOHC) to drive 32 valves (four per cylinder) for precise cylinder firing and maximum airflow through the cylinder heads. The DOHC and the Holset M2 two-stage turbocharger work together to deliver solid performance across the entire power band.

LIGHTWEIGHT CGI BLOCK

The new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel gives you maximum durability and power in a lightweight package. Extra weight was shed by building the cylinder block out of compacted graphite iron (CGI), which is stronger and lighter than traditional iron. Other lightweight engine components were added, like high-strength aluminum alloy heads and composite valve covers.

CLEAN EXHAUST SYSTEM

For decades, diesels had a dirty reputation for being, well, dirty. Technology has fixed all that. The new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel exhaust system has a particulate filter and selective catalytic reduction that enable the engine to run clean. That tech also serves a second purpose - it reduces noise. Power and efficiency is now clean and quiet.
