The second generation of the Nissan Titan came on the market less than two years ago, and it quickly became clear that Nissan intended to stand out in the full-size pickup segment. With its rugged yet refined look, powerful engines and massive design, the 2017 Nissan Titan can confidently compete with well-established American pickups. Here are three ways the 2017 Nissan Titan stands out.
It’s towing capacity
Nissan realized very quickly that truck owners want to use their trucks on a daily basis, but they also need a vehicle that will be able to handle basically any towing or hauling job.
At this level, the 2017 Nissan Titan can confidently tackle its competition. Available in a standard or XD version, the Nissan Titan can tow up to 9,770 pounds or 4,330 kilos with its standard V8 engine, but it can also be equipped with a Cummins diesel engine that allows it to tow up to 12,350 pounds or 5,606 kilos depending on the version. This leads us to the second point.
Its Cummins diesel engine
The name Cummins is well known to truck owners who use their trucks for work. Robust, reliable and efficient, Cummins engines continually standout with their impressive power and abundant torque.
The 2017 Nissan Titan XD has the advantage of being able to offer this engine to its potential owners. The V8 turbodiesel in question develops 310 horsepower and a towering torque of 555 lb.-ft., and as noted above it can tow more than 12,000 pounds.
The other engine option is a 5.6-liter V8 that develops 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of available torque at just 3,400 rpm.
There is no doubt that the 2017 Nissan Titan is one of the most robust trucks in its class. That said, it is also able to meet the needs of those who want to use their truck for their daily commute. Its spacious and refined interior combined with the high-end finish of the cabin and the many versions offered make the Titan a luxurious and particularly comfortable vehicle on the road. It’s the full-size pickup truck that can do it all.
