Although some details of the all-new 2017 Titan have already been revealed, Nissan has officially unveiled it at this year’s New York International Auto Show.
What we already knew:
The non-XD Titan will be available with two gasoline engines, a still-under-wraps V6 and a 5.6L V8 making 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. The V8 will also be found in the Titan XD and the new Armada. The transmission for all V8-equipped trucks will be a 7-speed automatic. The Titan will be offered in five trim levels: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve. There will also be three bed lengths: 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet, and 8.0 feet.
What we know now:
Pricing for the XD with the gasoline V8 is the biggest piece of information Nissan released at the auto show, so here is the low-down for Titan XD gasoline V8 Crew Cab models (the only one for which details were given). Prices are base MSRPs including a $1,195 destination charge.
S 4×2: $36,485
SV 4×2: $40,255
SL 4×2: $48,225
PRO-4X 4×4: $47,165
Platinum 4×2: $53,665
Add approximately $3,000 for 4×4 versions of each model except the PRO-4X, which comes only as a 4×4.
Dimensions for the non-XD Crew Cab have also been detailed in a press release from Nissan. It will have a 139.8-inch wheelbase, an overall length of 228.1 inches, and an overall height of 77.2 inches. These numbers compared to the XD’s are 11.8, 14.7, and 1.5 inches less, respectively. Overall width is identical to the XD’s at 79.5 inches.
With much coverage given to the Titan XD over the past year, Nissan would like to make it clear that the Titan is a different truck than its big brother.
“We’ve said before that even the lug nuts are different from TITAN to TITAN XD,” said Fred Diaz, Division Vice President and General Manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America. “What’s important is that these two trucks are serving a completely different type of customer. As the head of Nissan’s light commercial vehicle program in the U.S, I’m thrilled to be getting this truck into the lineup as an option for fleets as well as for the personal use buyer.”
