New Nissan Titan Takes Home Three Awards

New 2017 Nissan Titan

The 2017 Nissan Titan made its way to the annual Texas Truck Rodeo in mid-October and came out with a number of awards. The event, put on by the Texas Auto Writers Association, offers automakers a chance to strut their stuff with the toughest vehicles around. By coming out with three awards, the new Nissan Titan proved it can roll with the best of them.

The full-size pickup segment doesn’t have room for trucks that are weak of heart. The Nissan Titan hailed supreme, pulling three awards from the Texas Auto Writers Association. The first award, “Full-Size Truck of Texas” proved that the Titan truly is a tough pickup that’s capable of completing enormous tasks. That award went to the Titan Texas Edition SL Crew Cab.

The new Nissan Titan also earned the “Commercial Vehicle of Texas” award thanks to its extreme capability and versatility. That award found its way into the passenger seat of the Titan XD Single Cab diesel.

Finally, the Titan took home the “Best Value” award, marking its affordability in the full-size pickup segment. The prestigious honor went to the Titan XD Single Cab with either a gasoline or diesel engine.

We here at 171 Nissan couldn’t be prouder of the new Titan pickup truck!

Expanding its all-new truck lineup even more, Nissan showed off the 2017 Nissan TITAN at the New York Auto Show. This half-ton pickup is expected to be Nissan’s best-selling truck and is a little bit smaller than the recently introduced TITAN XD.

“The 2017 TITAN half-ton has the same aggressive style of the TITAN XD, but is about a foot shorter in wheelbase,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc., in a statement. “They share the same cabs, but while it offers similar ruggedness and durability, the TITAN half-ton’s chassis is completely different than XD.” 

Powering this all-new truck is a 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine rated at 390 horsepower. This will be paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Initially, the 2017 Nissan TITAN will come only in a Crew Cab design, but both a Single and King Cab variations will be added later. The Crew Cab will arrive in dealerships this summer.

With the addition of the TITAN XD and the all-new 2017 TITAN, Nissan’s full-size pickup lineup will have a wide range of options for buyers to choose from, including two chassis sizes, two fuel options, a range of cab and bed sizes, and so much more.

Here at 171 Nissan, we love the 2016 Nissan TITAN XD and can’t wait to see the all-new 2017 Nissan TITAN when it arrives later this summer.

“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!

Nissan Titan Truckumentary Looks at the Evolution of the Model

There’s no denying that the Nissan Titan is one hard-working, tough truck. Nissan is taking a closer look at the Titan’s evolution in a new video series called the Titan Truckumentary.

Nissan has released a teaser video to prepare for the series, which will begin in mid-December. More than a dozen videos will be released over the coming year in preparation for the next-generation Titan.

“The ‘Truckumentary’ is not meant to be the all-encompassing last word on Titan,” said Chief Product Specialist for the next-generation Titan, Rich Miller, in a statement. “Rather it’s the continuing story of the vehicle’s evolution, accompanied by a close look at the American-based team that is bringing this all-new truck to market.”

In the series, we’ll learn about how the Nissan Titan came to be, it’s progression over the years, and the future of the Titan, including the Cummins diesel engine that will be available soon.

What features or capabilities do you hope to see in the next-generation Nissan Titan?

“Project Titan,” Plan to Create World’s First Crowd-Sourced Truck, Begins

A while back, Nissan announced the exciting and original idea of Project Titan, a plan to create the world’s first crowd-sourced truck. And now, here at 171 Nissan, we are thrilled to announce that Project Titan is officially a go. After collecting tons of information and votes on the Nissan Truck’s Facebook page, Nissan has begun building the truck of its customers’ dreams.

Nissan is tracking the progress of Project Titan in a video series. “We partnered with our Nissan Truck fans and the Wounded Warrior Project to create the ultimate Titan for an epic adventure in Alaska,” an announcement at the beginning of the first video says. “Now we’re building it.”

Phase One of Project Titan introduces us to the base platform of the new Titan. It’s built on the 2014 Nissan Titan PRO-4X, with plenty of fan-favorite changes to boot. Phase One also sees the Titan team replace the car’s tires with Nitto Trail Grapplers and replace the normal suspension with a 4” PRG Long Travel Kit edition.

With those changes already in place, we can already see this uniquely customized truck rounding into the perfect shape to tackle the rugged Alaskan wilderness. Check back on the blog for more Project Titan news and keep an eye out for videos of future phases on Nissan’s YouTube channel as well.
