In order to compete with the strongest and popular car in the US pick-up segment, Nissan has to offer an increased range and many options for its potential clients. So, the recently introduced Titan is already expanding its range with the Titan XD and Titan Single Cab models.
The first-ever single cab offering in Titan history, the new trucks are designed to provide an affordable and rugged entry-point in the commercial fleet/work truck market. The Single Cab is the second of three eventual body configurations, joining the current Crew Cab and future King Cab. The Single Cab models are scheduled to go on sale in late fall 2016.
At the end of the expansion, the Titan will be available in a total of three cabs, three bed lengths, three engines, 4×4 and 4×2 drive and S, SV, SL, PRO-4X and Platinum Reserve trim levels. The new single cab will be offered in both Titan XD and Titan configurations, with both versions sharing the same cab dimensions and 8.0-foot pickup beds but completely separate fully boxed ladder frame chassis.
The Titan XD Single Cab, like the Titan XD Crew Cab, will be offered in a choice of two engines – the Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque, and the 5.6-liter Endurance V8, rated at 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. The Single Cab, with about a foot shorter wheelbase, will be offered initially with the new 5.6-liter Endurance V8 (a V6 engine will be available at a later date). Diesel equipped models feature an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission and V8 gasoline engine equipped versions will utilize a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Along with a choice of 4×4 and 4×2 drive configurations, two grade levels will be available with both Titan XD and Titan Single Cabs – S and SV, along with a number of optional equipment packages.
