Nissan appeared at the Detroit Auto Show some 12 years ago posing a confrontation with the Big Three with Titan, its signature full-size truck the Titan. Though the truck failed to register as a serious competition, it sure has a forceful name and Nissan is not messing up this time by repeating the past stunt. The second-generation truck the 2016 Titan will take its bow at the upcoming 2015 Detroit Auto Show said the spokesperson of Nissan.
As we are aware that the turbo-diesel option makes a hefty 300hp and 500lb-ft torque in the truck and the engineer from Cummins that there will be the 5.0 Liter V-8 with sequential turbocharger in the singular light duty truck marked in America. The technology is called as Holset M2 Two-Stage System aided by Rotary Turbine control, by Cummins. You haven’t understood what that depicts then read on to know the details.
Let us get to the simpler stuff first. The name Holset represents the engineering company which produces the Turbo. The two-stage explains the plumbing sequence of the two turbochargers and in spite of all this synchronization they are still two turbochargers of different sizes. The smaller one offers boost at low engine speeds, and the larger one takes over when the engine load, higher revs forces the compressor of the smaller turbine to gasp for the air. It significantly boosts power and pressure to a peak.
If you are with us then you must know that the things that we said above are not new especially. The sequential turbo was in use for decades though it is not common to vehicles. We have the European editions of Audi A6 and A7, which runs with sequential turbodiesel engines which offer more boost than the 240hp TDI. The Porsche 959 and Mazda RX-7 performance cars had sequential boosted engine previously.
