MORE VARIANTS AND ENGINES COMING SOON TO NISSAN’S 5/8-TON SEGMENT
Nissan’s redesigned Titan XD pickup is heading to dealerships now, with this 5/8-ton entry meant to be positioned just above the now-gargantuan 1500/150 range (that has almost become the smallest size of truck available) and the 2500/250 range.
Aiming for that niche should give the redesigned range a chance to upstage the smaller offerings while being only moderately more expensive, with the price of entry for the XD S Crew Cab 4×2 variant weighing in at $41,485. The SV trim level of that same truck will start at $45,255, while the SL trim level will be a bit dearer with a $53,225 starting price. The king of the hill among the 4×2 versions of the Titan XD will be the Platinum Reserve model, and it’ll start at $58,665.
The 4×4 version of the Titan XD will be just $3,000 north of the 4×2 trucks, with a $44,485 price of entry. There will be an extra trim level in the 4×4 range just between the SV and the SL trim levels, badged PRO-4X, with this version starting at $52,165. The priciest model in the 4×4 range will be the Platinum Reserve trim level, and that’ll be priced at $61,715.
That’s a lot of trim levels, but Nissan isn’t even close to being done with the range. Following the commercial launch of the Crew Cab versions, referenced above, the automaker plans to field two more cab configurations, one more frame size and two more engines besides the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbodiesel.
“Titan XD takes the tradition of full-size capacity to a whole new level, with standard 555 lb-ft of torque, a long list of innovative towing aids such as Around View Monitor and integrated gooseneck trailer hitch, and advanced safety and security features,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Sales & Marketing Operations, U.S., Nissan North America. Inc. “There’s never been a Titan like this and the diesel-powered Titan XD Crew Cab is only the beginning.”
