The 2017 Nissan Titan is the full-size automaker pickup. A successor that’s long-overdue to a truck which made its debut in the year 2004, this new Titan is made in Canton, Mississippi, and given as either the near-heavy-duty or as the light-dutyTitan XD.
Now the non-XD Titan is on sale as a 2017 model-year pickup this summer. Both the Titan as well as Titan XD are constructed in the exact facility, but do not share a much more running gear— down to diverse lug nuts. The wheelbase of the Titan, in a Crew Cab configuration, is almost one foot shorter compare to the Titan XD, and the entire length is above 14 inches shorter.
Style and performance
The look of the Titan’s is more macho than in the past. It has different grilles for the Titan and also Titan XD however, they use similar styling theme. They are bold, large, chrome affairs which is backed by a very active grille shutters which help decrease aerodynamic drag by 10% versus the old Titan, that was offered last for the 2014 model. All Titans have a kind of two-tone appearance.
In the trucks sue similar the bold, very simple utilitarian made as the domestic trucks. You will see a lot of storage cubbies and the large center console. The general look is blocky, having large controls which can be put to use with gloves.
Safety, features and comfort
Two cab styles are initially offered, Crew Cab and Single Cab. The Crew Cab has a rear seat that’s full-size. A King Cab having a smaller rear seat and rear-hinged doors will possibly follow.
We have also driven fancy-pants Titan and Titan XD versions (Platinum Reserve) and discover the front seats to be comfortable and supportive and covered in great leather. Its navigation screen is available on the small side however the rear view camera really works properly. A driver information center displays in the instrument cluster, and can initially be hard to figure it out.
The back seats of the Crew Cab are almost as relaxing as the fronts, with many room all around. A certain storage compartment available under the second row is given together with a flat floor for cargo.
For towing, there is an in-built gooseneck tow hitch available, which assists reduce trailer sway by just putting the hitch’s attachment point ahead of its rear axle. Currently I drive this truck as a daily driver and have no complaints. Even though I don’t use this for towing, its well capable of towing most light duty vehicles. My international work tow truck is the best for towing as the flatbed in much easier to load a vehicle.
Along with its fresh four-wheel electronica, the Titan sports 2017 rear view camera, guides that assist you with hitching a certain tow vehicle to a truck. Surround-view camera of Nissan’s pioneering is an option too. So also are blind-spot monitors, traffic alerts, rear cross, and rear parking sensors.
