Cummins Inc. was started in 1919 in Columbus, Indiana. Ever since that day, they have built a reputation as a leader in diesel engines. When most hear Cummins, we almost immediately associate it with Chryslers Dodge Ram pick up line. But the Cummins built engines can be found in a wide range of equipment and vehicles.
In 2016, Nissan began offering a completely redesigned Titan XD that utilizes a 5.0L V8 Cummins diesel motor, capable of producing 310 HP and 555 ft. lbs. of torque.
When it comes to “American Made”, Nissan takes the cake with the new Titan XD. From the core planning, engineering, and design that takes place in Tennessee, California, Michigan, and Arizona to the actual assembly taking place in Mississippi, and of course the powerhouse Cummins which is created in good ol’ Tennessee (and some in Indiana), the Titan is a true, American-made pickup truck.
