“If your towing needs strain the capabilities of existing half-ton pickups but you don’t want to make the stretch to an expensive, stiff-riding heavy-duty pickup, the Titan XD might be in the sweet spot,” claims Edmunds.com.
Nissan recently revealed it’s newly redesigned, second generation, full-size pickup at the North American International Auto Show. The 2016 Nissan Titan provides consumers with the choice of: two frame sizes, the larger being the XD, three cabin configurations, five trim levels and three bed lengths.
The first version to be released, the Titan XD, will be available to consumers late 2015. Under the hood, the Titan XD encloses a 310 hp 5-liter Cummins V8 turbo-diesel engine controlled by an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission. A V6 version and a gasoline powered V8 will be soon to follow.
The Titan XD also comes equipped with 12,000 lbs of towing capability and a payload capacity of 2,000 lbs. Updated features include: a gooseneck trailer hitch, lockable storage box beneath the rear seat, additional locked storage reachable from the bed, and LED lighting on the bed rails. Safety features include Nissan’s surround-view camera system, blind-spot warning, and moving object detection.
Come test drive this new brawny Titan later this year and find your sweet spot at 171 Nissan!
