CHICAGO — The standard 2017 Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck will arrive at Nissan dealerships this summer, joining the larger 2016 Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab that is already on sale. Nissan released photos of the 2017 Titan at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
The actual truck is not on display in the Windy City.
The Titan is sold in two frame sizes.
The light-duty or half-ton version of the Titan competes against the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra. Pricing will be announced closer to launch date, a Nissan spokesman told Edmunds.
The standard Titan is built on a separate chassis from the Titan XD and is about 14.7 inches shorter than the XD.
The two trucks share the same cab size.
"The Titan and Titan XD do not share any common chassis components," said Rich Miller, Nissan North America director of product planning for trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles, in a statement. "Even the lug nuts are different."
The standard version will be equipped with a 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine linked to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine delivers 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.
A V6 gasoline engine will also be available on the 2017 Titan. Specifications will be announced later, Nissan said.
The 2017 Titan will be available in 4x2 or 4x4 configurations, with three cab configurations and three bed lengths.
Edmunds says: Truck buyers get a long-awaited look at the standard 2017 Titan and find that it bears a strong resemblance to its bigger brother.
