The Nissan Titan is synonymous with rugged capabilities, and the new 2017 Titan Crew Cab is no exception. This model recently premiered at the New York International Auto Show, making this the first public showing of the half-ton pickup. With a powerful engine and a range of capabilities, drivers are bound to be impressed.
The 2017 Titan performance has been increased greatly, with a new 390 horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 that comes standard, according to Nissan. This may be paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, with available 4×4 and Adaptive Shift Control. An available Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel also recently premiered.
“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 Titan also comes with a redesigned exterior that is a little over 228 inches, nearly a foot shorter than the larger Titan XD. We can’t wait to see these new pickups hit the streets sometime in the near future.
