Titanic Pricing News: Nissan Half-Ton Crew Cab Starts Shy of 36 Grand

2017-Nissan-Titan-PLACEMENT

Nissan has announced pricing for its new, regular-duty (non-XD) Titan pickups, and they range from $1510 to $2530 less than the corresponding XD models. The half-ton Titan’s trim levels exactly mirror those of the beefier XD, ascending from S to SV to SL and then to Platinum Reserve—all with rear- or four-wheel drive. A 4×4-only Pro4X model also is available.

All regular-duty Titans come with Nissan’s revised 5.6-liter V-8, making 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, same as in the gasoline-powered XD.

The S base price will start at $35,975 for a rear-wheel-drive, S-model Crew Cab. Four-wheel drive adds $3030. Next up is the SV, at $38,865, with the 4×4 again requiring an additional $3030. The SL rings in at $47,575 with four-wheel drive here adding $3080. The top-spec Platinum Reserve commands $53,505, and $3090 more if you want four-wheel drive. The Pro4X model is four-wheel-drive only, at $46,215.

The above prices are for the Crew Cab body style, so they won’t represent the very cheapest way to get into a Titan. Nissan has not yet released pricing for the recently unveiled single-cab version (an old-school two-door), although that fleet-oriented model will be less expensive. In between, the company will add a King Cab body style, but that Titan variant has yet to make its debut.

2017 Nissan Titan

Nissan also announced pricing for the 2017 Titan XD, powered by the gasoline engine—again for the Crew Cab only. Here, the S starts at $37,485; the SV at $41,395; the SL at $49,655; and the Platinum Reserve at $55,025. Add between $2980 and $3080 for four-wheel drive. The 4×4 Pro4X is $48,375. Nissan has not released 2017 pricing for the XD diesel, but the 2016-model diesels were $5000 more than their gasoline-drinking equivalents.

In one final bit of 2017 Titan news, Nissan is extending the five-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty currently offered on its commercial vans to Titan pickups as well. That puts Nissan ahead of the bumper-to-bumper coverage offered by the other four full-size-pickup manufacturers (all with three-year/36,000-mile coverage) and ahead of Toyota, Ford, and General Motors for powertrain (they’re all at five years/60,000 miles). GM’s heavy-duty diesel-powered pickups and all Ram pickups match the Nissan powertrain coverage, however, at five years/100,000 miles.

Clearly, Nissan is looking to give notoriously brand-loyal full-size-pickup buyers an incentive to switch, as it continues the slow rollout of its new Titan lineup. That rollout should be complete, we’re told, by the first quarter of 2017.
