Nissan will offer a redesigned half-ton Titan powered by a pair of gasoline engines that shares no chassis components with its bigger brother, the Titan XD. Nissan provided details about the truck at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
Nissan's half-ton Titan is approximately 228.1 inches long (14.7 inches less than XD) and 79.5 inches 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," said Rich Miller, Nissan's director of product planning for trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles. "Even the lug nuts are different."
The Titan will be available in rear-wheel or 4x4 drive configurations with three cab configurations — Crew Cab, King Cab and Single Cab — and three bed lengths — 5.5, 6.5, and 8 feet. Similar to Titan XD, Titan will be available in five trim levels — S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve, according to the automaker.
The Titan will be powered by Nissan's 5.6L Endurance V-8 gasoline engine capable of 390 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine will be mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. A V-6 gasoline engine will also be available, according to the automaker.
The Nissan Titan will be assembled in Canton, Miss., with the 5.6L V-8 gasoline assembled in Decherd, Tenn. The truck goes on sale in the summer.
