It took a few months, but the Nissan Titan XD finally has a baby brother because the company is now ready to give vital details about the standard, half-ton Titan. Looking at them in photos, it can be difficult to spot the differences, but under the skin these siblings don’t have much of a family resemblance.
“The Titan and Titan XD do not share any common chassis components,” Rich Miller, Nissan’s director of product planning for trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles, said in the pickup’s announcement. “Even the lug nuts are different.”
The Titan’s chassis is quite a bit smaller than the XD. At 228.1 inches long for the crew cab model, the standard truck is 14.7 inches shorter overall than its XD counterpart. The wheelbase shrinks nearly a foot, and height drops by 1.5 inches. Both models have the same width, though, and the cab sizes are also identical, so occupants shouldn’t feel cramped.
Despite the difference in size, the two trucks look very similar. Their big mesh grilles, headlights, and front fascias have a distinct resemblance. You can notice the standard Titan is smaller in profile, but the styling is still largely the same.
Nissan will offer the Titan with two engines, but it will only discuss one at the moment. Customers will be able to order a 5.6-liter V8 with 390 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque and a seven-speed automatic gearbox. There will also be a gasoline-fueled V6, but the company won’t talk specifics yet.
The standard Titan will go on sale this summer in rear- and four-wheel drive configurations. Nissan will offer the truck with three cabs – Crew, King, and Single – and three bed lengths – 5.5, 6.5, and 8 feet. Buyers will also be able to spec a truck that will be just right for them because the Titan will be available in five trims: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve.
