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.
They also feature the same cab size. Nissan will make the TITAN available in 4x2 or 4x4 drive configurations and in three bed lengths: 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet and 8 feet. It will also be made available in five trim levels: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.
Nissan will assemble the TITAN at its site in Canton, Mississippi and the 5.6-liter V8 gasoline in Decherd, Tennessee.
In addition, Nissan enhanced engine noise isolation and body sealing in the new TITAN. Fred Diaz, Division Vice President and General Manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles at Nissan North America, Inc., remarked that the TITAN is different from the TITAN XD, even with the lug nuts. He noted that the TITAN and TITAN XD are serving a different type of customer.
