Nissan has released the first teaser video for the 2016 Titan.

The clip only gives us a few glimpses of a prototype but we can see the model will have a massive grille, rounded fender flares and what appears to be a sculpted hood.

Nissan also revealed plans to launch a "Truckumentary" next month which is being described as a "... continuing story of the vehicle's evolution, accompanied by a close look at the American-based team that is bringing this all-new truck to market." The series will consist of more than 12 videos and they will be released over the course of a year.

Nissan didn't have much to say about the Titan itself but it is expected to debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The model is expected to be offered in several new configurations and the company has already confirmed plans for a 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8 engine that develops more than 300 bhp (223 kW) and 550 lb-ft (744 Nm) of torque.
