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.

2017 Nissan Titan Overview
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.
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.
