NISSAN SHOWS ALL-NEW 2017 TITAN PICKUP AT 2016 NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW
• Half-ton truck fills out TITAN lineup; on-sale summer 2016NEW YORK
– Today at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, Nissan officially unveiled the standard bearer of its family of TITAN pickups – the 2017 TITAN Crew Cab, powered by Nissan's 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine.
With the all-new flagship XD model of Nissan's reimagined TITAN family of pickups already in dealer lots, this volume model, half-ton TITAN will go on sale in the late summer of 2016. TITAN will initially launch as a Crew Cab model wîth Single and King Cab variants planned for later in the model year.
'TITAN shares its aggressive style wîth the TITAN XD, but the two vehicles are completely different underneath the skin,' said Fred Diaz, Division Vice President and General Manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. 'TITAN will compete in the heart of the full-size pickup §egmènt – the half-ton – while the TITAN XD provides a unique solution for customers by bridging the cost and capability gap between traditional half-ton and full heavy-duty pickups. Between TITAN and TITAN XD, we will cover about 85 percent of the full-size truck market.'
TITAN is built on a separate chassis from TITAN XD, and is approximately 228.1 inches long (14.7 inches less than XD) and 79.5 inches wide (same as XD), wîth the cab size shared between the two vehicles.

'We've said before that even the lug nuts are different from TITAN to TITAN XD,' added Diaz. 'What's important is that these two trucks are serving a completely different type of customer. As the head of Nissan's light commercial vehicle program in the Ú.S, I'm thrilled to be getting this truck into the lineup as an option for fleets as well as for the personal use buyer.'
TITAN will be available in 4x2 or 4x4 drive configurations and three bed lengths – 5.5, 6.5 and 8 feet. Similar to TITAN XD, TITAN will be available in five trim levels – S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.
The TITAN will be powered by Nissan's 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine, producing 390 horsepower. This engine, which will also be featured in the TITAN XD V8 Gas and the all-new 2017 Armada, will be mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
