Nissan introduces Frontier and Titan Midnight Edition models just in time for solar eclipse

Amid the excitement related to the solar eclipse, Nissan revealed two of its pickups, both in a special edition livery. Instead of waiting for auto shows, Nissan chose to debut its new models in the United States on this auspicious day. The Japanese manufacturer has not introduced new models. Instead, it unveiled a Midnight Edition for the following models: Titan, Titan XD, and the Frontier.

For the Midnight Edition, expect to see a blacked out version of the cars. To be more specific, the Titan model will now get a black front grille, headlight surrounds, foglight trim. And for the Titan XD, it gets additional blacked out fender louvers too. Smaller details like the mirror caps, door handles, badges and step rails also get a darker shadow like shade too. Other than that, they will now have a set of black painted 20-inch wheels to complete the midnight look. If you are not a big fan of all-black cars and would rather see some contrast, you can order the car in a different finish such as Gun Metallic gray and Pearl White.

The Midnight Edition package is not just limited to the car’s exterior. In the cabin, you will find Charcoal black accents together with black floor mats.

Nissan adds King Cab body style to its 2017 Titan and Titan XD large pickup truck lineup

A new body configuration will be added to Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD large pickup trucks starting in the 2017 model year. The Japanese carmaker announced at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show that its Crew Cab and Single Cab body configurations for the Titan and Titan XD are now joined by the new King Cab body.

With the announcement, Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD lineup is now available in three cabs and three bed length configurations. Both the Titan King Cab and Titan XD King Cab are available in either 4x4 and 4x2 drive. Three grade levels -- S, SV and PRO-4X – are also offered.

The King Cab configuration is basically a cross between the Crew Cab and Single Cab. Its cabin is smaller than on the Crew Cab but is still larger than the Single Cab. Moreover, the King Cab still offers seating for rear passengers, just like the Crew Cab. According to Nissan, the King Cab version of the half-ton Titan and the three-quarter ton Titan XD will be able to accommodate up to six occupants – three in the somewhat cramp rear cabin and another three on the front row. The front row usually seats two – the driver and a passenger.

Nissan Motorsports creates extreme Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck

As it is, the new Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck is already a mean machine ready to take on anything on the road or even off it. But of course, a customer could always make the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck much meaner and more full of character – by availing of Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories as well as aftermarket components.

To show how customers could spice up the meaningful character of the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, the Japanese carmaker – through its Nissan Motorsports division -- is bringing the pickup truck to the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. However, this pickup truck – a 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab in Super Black finish -- has been configured and modified with Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories and available aftermarket parts. Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this modified Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X is also outfitted with a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system.

Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this tweaked pickup truck will be fully shown to the public at Chicago's McCormick Place from February 11 to 20, 2017.

2017 Nissan Titan Single Cab pricing starts at $29,580

Nissan has announced the pricing for its new commercial pickup line. So for those who have been waiting for Nissan’s official price list (plus a little more info), read on…

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the Titan S Single Cab is as low as $29,580 while the Titan XD Gas single cab 4x2 is at $31,090. The Single Cab configuration is available in both the Titan XD (S/SV grade levels) as well as in the Titan half-ton models.

The single cab normally makes ten percent of sales in the full size truck category. In fact, this is the first time for Nissan Titan to join the commercial pickup segment. Nevertheless, the new Single Cab will finally become part of the new market usually intended for crew cab configuration models.

Nissan has taken the veils off the new 2017 TITAN Crew Cab at the 2016 New York Auto Show. This latest version of the TITAN – to be sold starting summer 2016 -- will be powered by 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine that develops 390 hp and is mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

This Nissan engine will also power the Nissan TITAN XD V8 Gas and the 2017 Armada. Nissan will later equip the 2017 TITAN with a V6 gasoline engine. The Japanese carmaker plans to commence sales of the 2017 TITAN in the late summer of 2016 as a Crew Cab model.

The 2017 Nissan TITAN will later be available on Single and King Cab variants. Underpinned by a chassis separate from TITAN XD, the TITAN is around 14.7 inches shorter (at 228.1 inches in length) but is just as wide at 79.5 inches.

With a special photography release, Nissan North America, Inc. focuses the attention on the upcoming standard/half-ton version of TITAN at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. This move follows on the success of the redefined TITAN lineup's flagship XD unit.

According to Nissan Director of Product Planning for Trucks, SUVs, and Commercial Vehicles and Chief Product Specialist for TITAN and TITAN XD Rich Miller, there is a strong resemblance between the TITAN and the TITAN XD especially because of their rugged exterior styling.

The difference between the two is that the former will mostly compete in the full-size pickup segment while the latter is widely intended to bridge the capability gap between traditional half-ton and heavy-duty pickups. Miller added that the overall market for full-size trucks will be composed of 85 percent TITAN and TITAN XD.

Nissan North America and Cummins have unveiled the latest speed-record challenger at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. This vehicle is the MY2016 Nissan Titan XD powered by Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel.

However, the truck is still under development through "Project Triple Nickel," a moniker that refers to the 555 lb.-ft. torque rating of a stock Titan XD.

Cummins and Nissan North America commenced making modifications on the 2016 Titan XD weeks ago, and those revisions included the installation of a special lowered suspension, Mickey Thompson tires, an Ultra Shield seat, salt-flat style disc wheel covers and a Stroud Safety parachute.

Nissan will make an explosive appearance at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The carmaker is set to debut a trio of 2016 Nissan TITAN XD units and the 2016 GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package for the GT-R Nismo.

The three Titan XD 2016 models include a bespoke model that was designed by Nissan in cooperation with SEMA itself. The collaboration resulted from a “measuring session” that SEMA and Nissan undertook early this year, and involved a PRO-4X model that was later on modified by SEMA.

Nissan had the truck conveyed to SEMA’s main base in Diamond Bar, California in September, and it was since customized extensively by the Association. Unlike the other two models, this bespoke model will take a place in the show’s Grand Lobby.

Nissan is confident that the newly unveiled MY2016 Titan will allow it to capture 5 percent of the full-size pickup market, although the carmaker’s head in the United States believes that it could gain more. Jose Munoz, chairman of Nissan North America, remarked that 5 percent is the basis for the carmaker’s investment and any less that rate would be considered as “not very successful.”

Munoz quipped at the J.D. Power Automotive Summit that the 5-percent target is a modest aspiration. A 5% share of the full-size pickup market in 2014 would mean selling around 100,000 trucks, while Nissan also sold fewer than 13,000 Titans that year.

During the summit, Munoz said Nissan targets sales of around 100,000 Titans. Nissan actually sold around 85,000 Titans in its first two years of sales in 2004 and 2005, but the volume has since dropped due to a number of reasons like the lack of a fresh and appealing replacement.

Following its global debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD will be arriving at dealerships across the United States and Canada late this year. It is bound to penetrate into the highly competitive full-size pickup segment with its bold all-new design and determined performance.

The new Nissan Titan XD is engineered to deliver the towing and hauling capability of the larger heavy-duty trucks. In fact, it offers an available maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 lbs as well as, when properly equipped, maximum payload capacity of 2,000 lbs. Likewise, the new Titan XD is engineered to be as fuel efficient and as affordable as a half-ton pickup.

The new Titan XD will be available in any of three cab configurations, two frame sizes, three powertrain offerings and five grade levels. One of these cab configurations is the new Titan XD Crew Cab powered by a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine, as shown in Detroit.

Nissan Motor Corp. will unveil a new version of the Titan full-size pickup next month at the North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show. Nissan and Cummins Inc. have confirmed that the new Titan could be availed with a Cummins-built 5.0-liter turbodiesel V-8 – providing at least 300 hp and 500 pounds-feet of torque -- as an option.

As shown by spy photos, the second-generation Titan seems to feature larger headlights located on the lower part of the front fenders; a big-rig style and a larger grille.

In July, Automotive News reported that the new Titan will be available in three cab configurations -- crew, extended and, a regular cab.

The Nissan Project Titan truck is now prime and ready to take on the wilderness and treacherous terrain of Alaska. The crowd-sourced truck was built with the help of the Nissan Trucks Facebook fan base, who voted on 10 different areas of customization to help the Titan conquer Alaska's challenging terrain – some of the most treacherous in the world.

Fans voted at each stage along the way, giving Nissan direction for almost every inch of the truck. Based on a 2014 Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X, the 2014 Nissan Project Titan boasts of several features that allow it to brave the journey.

Bearing a "Recon Titan" wrap with a digital-camouflage design, the Nissan Project Titan truck feature a NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust system that opens up airflow on both ends of the truck’s Endurance 5.6-liter V-8 engine.

Nissan is eyeing to offer more configurations for its redesigned Titan full-sized pickup to heighten its appeal among fleet buyers and basic work truck customers. Rich Miller, Nissan's chief product specialist in charge of the next Titan, remarked that increased variation is important, noting that the current Titan “just didn't hit the work customer as strongly as it should have."

He noted that Nissan only offered one engine -- a premium V-8 – something that work truck customers would find hard to consider. Typically, work truck customers choose pickups according to price and capability, he said.

He noted that if a carmaker cannot offer a “regular-cab, six-cylinder, stripped-down truck” it is out of that market. When it launched the Titan in 2004, Nissan differentiated its full-sized pickup offering with features like factory-installed spray-on bedliners and doors that could open 180 degrees and built-in cargo bed hooks.

Nissan has disclosed that its Titan pickup will be available in a Cummins turbodiesel engine in the 2015 calendar year. Nissan spokesman Dan Bedore remarked that they will "definitely leverage the Cummins brand name." Cummins has been the only diesel engine supplier for Chrysler's Ram pickup since 1989 and has been one of main factors why customers opt to purchase the truck.

This is simply because the Cummins diesel engine has earned a name for towing capability, long life low maintenance and good fuel economy. The Ram powered by a Cummins diesel could provide up to 850 pounds-feet of torque and could tow up to 30,000 pounds, the best in the industry.

Rams powered by the engine have fenders featuring Silver Cummins Turbo Diesel badges, which could also adorn Nissan's Titan pickups once they hit the road.

Nissan aims to be more aggressive with its next-generation Titan and as a result the new pickup will receive a 5.0-liter turbodiesel V8 from Cummins. Moreover, Cummins is also developing a version of the engine for its commercial vehicle customers. The new 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine will deliver more than 300 hp and around 550 lb-ft of torque.

With these numbers, it will provide a towing capacity and mileage in the highly-competitive North American truck marketplace. The new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel will be built in America’s manufacturing heartland at the Columbus Engine Plant, in Columubus, Cummins headquarters.

Due to competitive reasons, Nissan didn’t announce launch the launch date of the 2015 Titan. However, the 2015 Nissan Titan prototype trucks using the Cummins diesel V8 engine are currently undergoing extensive on-public-highway performance and durability testing.

Nissan North America is very optimistic about its redesigned 2015 Nissan Titan, which is targeted at the Ford F-150, with an expectation that its sales will increase by 460%. It will feature a bigger model range and engine options.

Pierre Loing, vice president of product and advanced planning and strategy for Nissan North America, Inc., told Edmunds in an interview that attaining sales of 100,000 is “certainly possible." He added that there may be a “recipe” to get a portion of this big segment.

The Detroit 3 considers the full-size pickup market to be its most profitable segment. For 2012, combined sales for Chevrolet, Ford, Ram, Toyota and Nissan totalled to about 1.6 million units, the reason for Nissan deciding to try this market at least one more time.

Due to the high demand for new pickups, Nissan will not drop its poor-selling Titan full-size pickup truck. Instead, it will receive a revamp that will arrive in 2014. The Titan was launched in 2003. It was never as successful as they had hoped, getting only 1.5% of the overall half-ton pickup market. The reason for the truck’s failure is that it was only available in few configurations with a single engine option.

In addition, it doesn’t have a base model that that was liked by tradesmen and fleet customers. R.L. Polk automotive said that the average pickup truck on the road is about a decade old so it would have to be replaced soon. There’s also a big portion of consumers who are not loyal to a specific brand, giving Nissan the opportunity to fill a hole in the market.

The details about new features for the Titan weren’t revealed yet. It’s believed that it will probably be offered with a diesel engine. The Titan’s revamp is comparable to what Toyota’s full size Tundra got.

Nissan made some subtle changes for its 2013 Titan full-size pickup truck. Nissan has also announced that the starting price of the Titan S King Cab 4×2 SWB base model is $28,820. The most significant revision on the 2013 Titan is the use of a new aerodynamic rear spoiler on the tailgate. Meanwhile, the step rails are now standard equipment on the SV and SL models.

SV King Cab 4×2 SWB model is priced from $31,250 while the Titan SV King Cab 4×4 SWB is priced from $34,100. With regards to the SV King Cab 4×4 SWB model, Nissan set a price of $31,670. The PRO-4X King Cab 4×4 SWB is at the top of this range of King Cab models. It has a starting price of $37,040.

The 2013 model is offered with a PRO-4X trim that improves on its exterior looks with updated graphics, satin chrome grille, dark wheel finish, a dark-finish lower radiator skid plate, and updated interior upholstery. The Titan S Crew Cab 4×2 SWB is priced at $31,370 while the PRO-4X 4×4 has a price tag of $39,240.

The revived Nissan Titan pickup was supposed to arrive this year as a 2013 model but because of the disaster in Japan last March, its introduction has been put off until the 2014 model year. At the Los Angeles auto show, Andy Palmer, Nissan Motor Co.'s executive vice president for vehicle planning and program management, spoke to Automotive News. He said that Nissan had to redeploy some of its engineers so that production could resume after the quake.

Palmer said that he made the decision because Nissan’s supply chain was disrupted and this hampered the global output of Nissan plants. Nissan was forced to marshal engineering groups just so its system could be back up as soon as possible.

The downside is that the Titan’s launch had to be postponed. Palmer wouldn’t say the exact sale date of the new generation of the full-sized truck.

Ever since a deal to team up with Chrysler Group fell apart last year, the Titan's future had been in limbo. But during an interview last Monday at the Detroit Auto Show, Larry Dominique, Nissan North America's vice president for product planning, confirmed that the next-generation Titan will be built in-house.

In August, Chrysler threw out plans to share vehicles with Nissan Motor Co., including a pickup.

A Nissan spokesman had explained that the company was exploring options and is seeking another automaker as a partner. The plan had been for the next-generation Titan to be based on the Dodge Ram pickup and to go on sale in 2012 model year.
