The 2017 Nissan TITAN half-ton pickup, which made its world debut at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, is the standard bearer of Nissan's family of TITAN pickups. It is projected to be the highest volume TITAN, competing in the heart of the full-size pickup segment.
The TITAN half-ton has the same aggressive style as the TITAN XD, but is about a foot shorter in wheelbase. The XD and half-ton models share the same cabs, but while they offer similar ruggedness and durability, the TITAN half-ton's chassis is completely different than XD.
The new TITAN half-ton is 228.1 inches long – 14.7 inches less than the larger TITAN XD (242.8 in.). The 2017 TITAN half-ton will initially launch as a Crew Cab model, with Single and King Cab variants planned for later in the 2017 model year. Three bed lengths will be available – 5.5, 6.5 and 8.0 feet – along with five grade levels, S, SV, SL, PRO-4X and Platinum Reserve.
The new TITAN half-ton is powered by Nissan's 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine, assembled in Decherd, Tenn., which produces 390 horsepower. Torque is rated at 394 lb-ft. The engine, which is also featured in the TITAN XD V8 Gas, is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. A V6 gasoline engine will also be available (details to be announced at a later date).
The 2017 TITAN half-ton is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.
