NISSAN TITAN 2017 FIRST LOOK
NISSAN TITAN 2017 FIRST LOOK BY AUTO CRITIC STEVE HAMMES
Earlier this year, Nissan unleashed its all-new Titan pickup truck and decided to lead with the big-boy, diesel-powered Titan XD.
But for those looking for a more traditionally sized half-ton, this 2017 Titan – now available in a single cab configuration – appeases weekend warriors and work truck buyers alike.
This adds another build option for Titan shoppers, adding to the previously announced Crew Cab. A King Cab model is also in the pipeline. The Titan Single Cab measures nearly 15” shorter than the XD Crew Cab and comes exclusively with an 8’ bed. It’s initially offered with the new 5.6-liter Endurance V8 rated at 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque.
A V6 engine will be available at a later date. A 7-speed automatic transmission is the sole gearbox. Other vital stats include nearly 2,000 pounds maximum payload capability and 9,730 pounds towing capacity.
Available in two entry grade levels with a number of optional equipment packages and the choice of 4X2 and 4X4 drive, the Titan Single Cab offers durability and innovation in an ideal fleet/work truck configuration, backed by a 5-year/100,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
