2017 Nissan Titan Buyer's Guide
What's Old is New Again
After a first-generation run that lasted 12 long model years, the Nissan Titan was completely redesigned for 2016. Now more competitive with 1/2-ton trucks like the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado, the lineup also includes a new Titan XD version that offers an available Cummins diesel engine and blends the comfort of a 1/2-ton truck and the increased capabilities of a 3/4-ton truck. The Titan is available in Single Cab, King (extended) Cab, and Crew Cab configurations, and the gas-powered V8 will eventually be joined by an available V6 engine.
From our expert review of the Nissan Titan: "With Nissan's 5.6-liter V8 Endurance engine humming under the hood, the 2017 Titan pickup truck feels powerful, while the added insulation and the cabin's laminated side glass help make this Nissan truck remarkably quiet. When you put your foot into it, the V8 does bellow a satisfying roar, and the Titan's standard 7-speed automatic transmission smoothly ticks through gears."
The Nissan Titan Single Cab is already in dealerships, starting at less than $31,000 for the 2-wheel-drive S with the 5.6-liter gas V8. Move to the top-of-the-line 4-wheel-drive Platinum Reserve Crew Cab and check all the boxes, and the price is closer to $60,000. The Titan King Cab has not gone on sale yet, but you can expect pricing with that configuration to fall between the Single and Crew Cab.
