Nissan looks to be capitalizing on more configurations of the redesigned Titan, with both the standard and XD models, and the upcoming single-cab version of the fullsize truck. Now it looks like Nissan will add more derivatives of the standard-cab variant, with what looks to be a more aggressive version.
While fleet-oriented regular cabs will have a V6 and sparse interiors, this version sports the larger wheels from the Platinum models, suggesting a heavier-duty suspension and more power from the 5.6L V8 in the four-door trucks. It also appears to have the short 5½-ft. bed, rather than the longer 8-ft. version seen on work-truck examples. While base regular cabs will be limited in options, it’s possible this “Sport Titan” would be available with the more sophisticated features found on the more expensive four-door models.
Competing against models, such as the Ram 1500 Sport, this could be Nissan’s way of injecting performance into a profitable pickup niche, however small it is. Still, it’s another way the Titan can stand out among the more dominant fullsize truck forces.
