Nissan is expanding its full-size pickup truck portfolio with the 2017 Nissan Titan 1500 half-ton. This is truck does not share much with the Titan XD lineup. The half-ton is sized to compete directly against the heavy hitters in the segment: Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, and Toyota Tundra.
This crew cab, short bed, 4×4 Titan is powered by a fully redesigned 5.6L gasoline V8 with 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. The engine is backed up by a 7-speed automatic transmission. This PRO-4X version is focused on off-road performance. It has Bilstein shocks, skid plates, low range, a rear locking differential, and General Grabber tires.
We wanted to learn more about what makes the Titan 1500 PRO-4X unique. This is why we are going under the truck with our cameras for a detailed view and description.
We will be taking this truck on the difficult Cliffhanger 2.0 Rocky Mountain trail. Stay tuned for that!
Check out the video as Nathan and Andre take a detailed look at the Titan PRO-4X suspension, frame, skid plates and more.
