2017 Nissan Titan OVERVIEW

One year after the debut of the heavy-duty, diesel-powered Titan XD, Nissan introduced a redesigned half-ton Titan full-size pickup truck as a 2017 model. After retaining the same basic design since 2004, when the first-generation Titan appeared, the redesigned version looks significantly different. Previously offered only in Crew Cab configuration, the Titan now comes in a choice of three cab styles.

What's New for 2017

Fully redesigned and built on a different chassis, the half-ton Titan is 14.7 inches shorter than the recently-launched, heavy-duty XD model. Single Cab and King Cab configurations are available for the first time, in addition to the Crew Cab. A newly available Texas Package includes a chrome grille and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Choosing Your Nissan Titan

Under the 2017 Titan's hood, a 5.6-liter gasoline V8 engine develops 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. That’s a substantial increase from the previous V8, which made 317 hp and 385 lb-ft. Nissan has announced that a V6 option will become available later. A seven-speed automatic is the sole transmission.

Three cab styles are available: Single, King, and Crew. Bed lengths measure 5.5, 6.5, or eight feet in length. Offered in S, SV, and PRO-4X trim, the King Cab has rear-hinged back doors for second-row access. Single Cab models have an eight-foot bed and come in S or SV trim level. Crew Cabs get a 5.5-foot bed.

Maximum towing capacity is 9,730 pounds with the Single Cab model, versus 9,390 pounds with the Crew Cab and 9,420 with the King Cab. A rearview camera is optional in lower trim levels.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive is a $3,030 option. Fuel economy with either rear-drive or four-wheel drive is estimated by the EPA at 15 miles per gallon city, 21 highway, 18 combined. The four-wheel-drive PRO-4X edition is a tad less thrifty, at 15 city, 20 highway, and 17 mpg combined.

Practical features include a spray-on bedliner, 120-volt outlet in the bed, secure in-cab storage space, and LED bedrail lighting. There's room for up to six passengers in King Cab models, with either a split bench or bucket seats up front. For work-truck use, the King Cab’s 60/40-split, fold-down rear seat can be deleted.

Five trim levels are available for the half-ton Titan. Standard equipment shown is for Crew Cab models, Single Cab and King Cab versions vary slightly.

S

With a Single Cab configuration and rear-wheel drive, the workhorse Titan starts at $30,775 (destination charge included). Four-wheel drive adds $3,030. Standard equipment on Crew Cab ($35,975) includes a 40/20/40-split bench seat, flip-down center seat, five-inch display with CD player and USB connection, and six-speaker audio. Hands-free text messaging is standard. Stain-resistant cloth seats have vinyl bolsters.

SV

Priced at $33,655 with rear-drive and Single Cab, or $38,865 as a Crew Cab, the first step-up model adds carpeting, satellite radio, an overhead console, grocery hooks, heated power mirrors, in-mirror turn-signal indicators, trailer sway control, an off-road indicator, and front tow hooks. Cloth upholstery omits the S model’s vinyl bolsters.

PRO-4X

Off-roaders are the intended targets for the PRO-4X, offered only with four-wheel drive, in King or Crew Cab ($46,215) form. Standard features include navigation with a seven-inch touchscreen, Bilstein off-road shocks, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, radiator skid plate, hill-descent control, 12- and 110-volt power outlets, and a configurable center console. Captain’s chairs are installed up front, powered for the driver. A rearview camera is standard, along with blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert. Painted alloy 18-inch wheels hold all-terrain tires.

SL

With rear-drive and a Crew Cab body, the SL starts at $47,775 and includes leather-appointed seats, heated front seats, a power passenger seat, power steering column, a chromed mesh grille, front/rear parking sensors, power-sliding back glass, remote engine start, and a Rockford Fosgate 12-speaker audio system.

Platinum Reserve

Topping the lineup at $53,505 with rear-drive and a Crew Cab body, the Platinum Reserve pickup adds premium leather-appointed seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood insert, heated/cooled front seats, heated rear seat, trailer brake controller, and open-pore wood instrument-panel trim.

CarsDirect Tip

Choosing a Titan used to be easier, when Nissan offered only the Crew Cab configuration. Even with three cab choices and five trim levels now, decision-making shouldn’t be an ordeal, with clear equipment differences between each version and a reasonable-length option list. Top trims add luxury features, but most buyers should be satisfied with a less-costly version – or with the tempting PRO-4X, if off-roading is a consideration.
