Nissan North America announced that it will establish the Titanâ€™s first-ever single cab model for the all-new 2017 Titan and Titan XD.
The Titan is Nissanâ€™s full-size pickup truck for the North American market. In January 2015, it was renamed as the Titan XD to accompany the introduction of its second-gen model. In February 2016, Nissan added and launched a new Titan trim at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. This 0.5-ton model derived from the Titan XD features the same name as the original Titan.
The exterior length and wheelbase of the Titan XD are 6,167mm and 3,850mm, respectively. Comparatively, the new Titan has been shortened by 373mm (at 5,794mm) in length and 300mm (at 3,550mm) in wheelbase.
This time, Nissan has established the Titanâ€™s first single cab for the 2017 version of the Titan and Titan XD. While the current Crew Cab offers two rows of seating, the new Single Cab will only feature one row. However, the cargo length is approximately 2,438mm, which are 762mm and 457mm longer than the Crew Cab for the Titan and Titan XD, respectively.
The powertrain is a 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine that generates 390hp of maximum output and 55.5kgm of maximum torque. The transmission is a seven-speed automatic system. In addition, a V6 gasoline engine for the Titan and a Cummins V8 turbo diesel for the Titan XD are available as an option.
