2017 Nissan Titan XD and Titan Single Cabs Beef Up Nissan's Truck Lineup

CARMEL, California — The 2017 Nissan Titan XD and Titan Single Cabs will arrive at Nissan dealerships in late fall, providing truck buyers with more choices.

Pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.

The first single-cab offerings in Titan history are aimed at commercial and fleet buyers, according to Nissan. The second-generation Titan targets the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra.

Nissan said the Single Cab is the second of three eventual Titan body configurations, including the current Crew Cab and a future King Cab.

Two engine choices are offered on the Titan XD Single Cab. They are the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbodiesel, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque, and the 5.6-liter V8, which delivers 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque.

The Titan Single Cab debuts with the 5.6-liter V8 engine. A V6 engine will be available at a later date, Nissan said.

The diesel models are equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission; V8 gasoline versions get a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Single Cab models ride on a 139.8-inch wheelbase and have a bed length of 8 feet, enough to carry supplies such as plywood or drywall.

Edmunds says: Nissan is calling this the "Year of the Truck" as it hopes to make inroads into the full-size truck segment. Truck buyers likely will put these two new Titan workhorses on their consideration lists.
