"The 2017 TITAN half-ton has the same aggressive style of the TITAN XD, but is about a foot shorter in wheelbase," said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc., revealing the new truck during a press conference at the auto show. "They share the same cabs, but while it offers similar ruggedness and durability, the TITAN half-ton's chassis is completely different than XD."
The new TITAN half-ton will be powered by Nissan's 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine, assembled in Decherd, Tenn., which produces 390 horsepower. This engine, which is also featured in the TITAN XD V8 Gas, will be mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. A V6 gasoline engine will also be available (details to be announced at a later date).
2016 TITAN XD Crew Cab V8 Gas pricing announced
Announced today in New York was the starting price* of the 2016 TITAN XD Crew Cab at $35,290 for the TITAN XD S Crew Cab 4x2 model. The gasoline V8-equipped TITAN XD will initially be available in five Crew Cab trim levels in both 4x4 and 4x2 drive configurations. All Endurance V8 engine models come standard with a new 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and Downshift Rev Matching.
"The TITAN XD stakes out a unique position in the full-size truck segment between traditional heavy-duty and light-duty entries. The bold new design combines the capabilities of a heavy-duty hauler with the drivability and affordability of a light-duty pickup," said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. "Now, with the addition of the powerful Endurance V8 gasoline engine, TITAN XD buyers can experience the 'Every Duty™' TITAN XD two ways."
The new V8-powered TITAN XD also offers a range of popular equipment packages, allowing buyers to fine-tune the exact features they desire for work or family use.
