Types of Nissan Engines

July 31st, 2018 by


No matter which Nissan model you take home, you can count that it comes with one of our dependable Nissan engines. However, depending on which Nissan model and trim level you settle on, you’re engine configuration may differ from one model to the next. From DOHC to diesel, each offers varying horsepower, torque, and MPG ratings. If you’re a fairly new driver you can rely on engine types such as the Nissan diesel engine or Nissan Altima engine, but if you’re looking for power on the job site you can turn to the Nissan Titan diesel engine.
