Spy Shots—Nissan Titan Sport Truck in the Works?

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.
