Or better still, the 5.4L (I think?) V8 TD that they are using in the good ol' U.S. of A.!!

Mate works out at the Dandenong site in Engineering and testing..

His statement
"There is no plan for a 4.8 Diesel.. so dont get excited"...

and

"... replacement might be here by May 05, depending on emissions, and probably will be IFS"...

RIP all true 4wd's.

That's the sadest news I've heard all year; but not entirely unexpected. At one stage (before the 3lt's starting blowing up) I was sort of hoping they'd bolt 2 more cylinders on the front of that "great" motor, OR, bolt another 4 cylinders beside the others.......6lt V8, I could learn to handle that, I thought.
Now that I'm a couple of years older and wiser as to the "benefits" of technology, I think I'll just keep on with my 4.2 pushrod T/D and hope like hell that (a) it never breaks down OR (b) if/when it karks it, that Chev V8s are still legal to replace.
Long live my beam axles and low-grade technology!!!!!!
Cheers,
Roachie

Truckster,

You're on the money. My work puts me in contact with Nissan's senior engine people in Yokohama, JP. They've told me that there are no plans for a 4.5/4.8 DI engine.

bugger :(

at least theres always a chance the mining pack with still have live axle like the 100 series....

Surely nissan will have to produce something decent in the turbo diesel department to compete with toyota's 150kW/430Nm 1HD-FTE??

Very Interesting


Power

5.6L V8, 305-HP, 385 lb-ft of torque, up to 9,100 lb. towing capacity with tow package


Looking at those Specs leave me scratching Mah Head thinging why the hell they let loose with that 4 clyinder here in Australia the one that keeps blowing up.
The issue that leaves me more confused than anything is People Actually still buy them ?

That looks the goods.

I particularly like the "Puddle Lights" feature. The Yanks think of everything. (A downlight mounted in the bottom of the wing mirrors so you can see if you are about to step in a puddle when you open the door!)

Only problem with the Nissan Armada is the independent suspension on all 4 wheels.

Thats actually the engine everyone was thinking the "TOP SECRET UPGRADED TD6" was going to have... Thus the Trusty old TD42 stayed as it was...

Seems the "off road" version gets Rancho shocks .... interesting. Almost as interesting as to what the articulation is .... or isn't.

I'm pretty sure the V8 isn't an oil burner though.
