Titan will be available in 4x2 or 4x4 drive configurations with three cabin configurations—Crew Cab, King Cab and Single cab—and three bed lengths—5.5, 6.5 and 8 ft. Similar to Titan XD, Titan will be available in five trim levels—S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.
   

Now that the all-new flagship XD model of Nissan’s reimagined Titan family of pickups is on dealer lots, Nissan is turning its attention to the upcoming “standard” (half-ton) version of Titan at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show with a special photography release.

“There’s a strong family resemblance between Titan XD and the standard Titan, with their shared rugged exterior style,” said Rich Miller, director of product planning for trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles, Nissan North America Inc., and chief product specialist for Titan and Titan XD. “Titan will compete in the heart of the fullsize pickup segment—the half-ton—while the Titan XD provides a unique solution for customers by bridging the cost and capability gap between traditional half-ton and full heavy-duty pickups. Together, Titan and Titan XD will cover nearly 85% of the total fullsize truck market.”

Titan is built on a separate chassis from Titan XD, and is approximately 228.1 in. long (14.7 in. less than XD) and 79.5 in. wide (same as XD), with the cab size shared between the two vehicles. “The Titan and Titan XD do not share any common chassis components,” added Miller. “Even the lug nuts are different.”

Titan will be available in 4x2 or 4x4 drive configurations with three cabin configurations—Crew Cab, King Cab and Single cab—and three bed lengths—5.5, 6.5 and 8 ft. Similar to Titan XD, Titan will be available in five trim levels—S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.

The Titan will be powered by Nissan’s 5.6L Endurance V8 gasoline engine capable of 390 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine will be mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. A V6 gasoline engine will also be available (details to be announced at a later date).

The Nissan Titan will be assembled in Canton, Mississippi, with the 5.6L V8 gasoline assembled in Decherd, Tennessee. The truck goes on sale in summer 2016.
