2017 Nissan Titan Half-Ton Debuts at New York Auto Show

The smaller, more affordable Titan makes a public appearance.

Thought Nissan revealed many details on the truck last month, it's only now that we're seeing the half-ton 2017 Nissan Titan in person. Introduced at the New York auto show, the 2017 Titan is the half-ton little brother to the tougher, beefier Titan XD. It will compete with trucks like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500 when it goes on sale this summer.

The 2017 Nissan Titan is not just a shrunken-down XD, as Nissan says that most major components are different, including the frame, between the vehicles. The Titan Crew Cab (Single and King Cab variants will arrive later) is 14.7 inches shorter than the XD, at 228.1 inches long, though the two trucks share their widths and cab sizes. As on the XD, there will be five trim levels for the 2017 Nissan Titan: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. Available bed lengths comprise 5.5, 6.5, and 8.0 feet.

Power comes from the same 390-hp, 5.6-liter V-8 engine that will be offered on the larger Titan XD, backed by a seven-speed automatic and available with rear- or four-wheel drive. The 2017 Nissan Titan will also have a V-6 gasoline engine option at a later date, though there are no details on it just yet.

Look for the 2017 Nissan Titan to hit dealers this summer, with pricing to be confirmed closer to that date.
