Nissan Titan half-ton pickup revealed ahead of Chicago debut

Nissan Titan

Nissan has pulled the wraps off the Titan half-ton, the latest addition to the company’s all-new line of full-size pickups.

Notably, while this truck shares its name and styling cues with the heavier-duty Titan XD that recently reached Nissan dealers, this new half-ton model shares no common chassis components with the Cummins diesel-powered XD. Both trucks share the same 2,019 mm (79.5 in.) overall width and four-door crew cab body, but the half-ton gives up 373 mm (14.7 in.) in overall length to the XD.

To start, all half-ton models will use a 5.6L “Endurance” V8 engine generating 390 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque mated to a standard seven-speed automatic transmission, and with a choice of 4×2 and 4×4 drivelines. Nissan says a V6 engine will come later, but isn’t ready to reveal technical details.

The Crew Cab configuration will be joined by single and King Cab options, as well as a choice of 5.5-, 6.5- and eight-foot bed lengths.

Nissan says the Titan half-ton will go on sale this summer.

As a child, Chris spent much of his time playing with toy cars in his parents’ basement; when his mother would tell him to go play outside, he made car sounds while riding his bicycle or dug roads for his toys in the flower garden. Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
