Nissan unveiled its 2017 Texas Titan package at the Texas State Fair today.
The new package, which includes a chrome grill and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, is available in two Titan and four Titan XD Crew Cab grades, including 4×4 and 4×2 configurations.
“Titan XD was named ‘Texas Truck of the Year’ last fall by the Texas Auto Writers Association so it’s fitting to acknowledge the Lone Star State with this special vehicle,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America. “For native Texans like myself, the Texas Titan is the perfect representation of Texas attitude—big horsepower, big torque, huge capabilities.”
The addition of the special appearance package is part of the ongoing expansion of the Nissan full- size pickup lineup as it enters its second year of production. Once the roll-out of all Titan cab, bed, powertrain and grade level configurations is complete, the Titan family will cover about 85 percent of the total light pickup marketplace. Features of the 2017 Texas Titan include:
- Chrome inner and outer grille finish
- 20-inch chrome aluminum-alloy wheels
- Metallic-finish kick plates
- Texas Titan floor mats
- Chrome exhaust finishers
- Texas Titan badging
In the Titan XD, SV and SL grades, the Texas package comes with choice of advanced Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbo diesel or 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engines.
Texas Titan half-ton models are available with V8-equipped SV and SL grades.
The 2017 Titan Lineup
The Titan XD Crew Cab is offered with a choice of two engines: a Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo diesel, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 555 lb.-ft. of torque; and the 5.6-liter Endurance V8, rated at 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Titan half-ton is available with the new 5.6-liter Endurance V8. Diesel equipped models feature an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission and V8 gasoline engine equipped versions utilize a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Available towing, utility features and driving aids include an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control and a Trailer Light Check system. Also assisting trailer hook-ups is the Titan’s RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, while the available Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD)2 provides a unique “bird’s eye” view of the surrounding area from front, rear and side cameras to help with parking and pulling in and out of tight spaces. Titan XD models feature an available integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame and easily accessible in the bed.
In addition, 2017 Titan XD and Titan Single Cab models, the first-ever single cab offering in Titan history, are designed to provide an affordable and rugged entry-point in the commercial fleet/work truck market. The Single Cab is the second of three eventual Titan body configurations, joining the current Crew Cab and future King Cab. The Single Cab models are scheduled to go on sale in late fall 2016.
