The 2018 Nissan Titan King Cab today was named “2018 Rocky Mountain Truck of the Year,” marking back-to-back wins for the Titan lineup at the annual Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP) Awards.
The 2017 Titan XD Diesel took top honors last year. The award, voted on by top automotive journalists in the Rocky Mountain Region, was presented during the annual Charity Preview Party of the Denver Auto Show.
“The Rocky Mountains feature some of the best off-road terrain America has to offer, and the area is also home to some of the top truck enthusiasts in the country,” said Tiago Castro, director, light commercial vehicles sales & marketing, Nissan North America. “Because of that, this award holds a great amount of significance, and we are thrilled for the Titan lineup to take home top honors in back-to-back years.”
Following several weeks of test drives, the 2018 Titan King Cab topped the RAM 2500 and Ford F-250 in final voting, with journalists noting the Titan King Cab’s 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine, seven-speed transmission and four-wheel-drive performance as top factors for their decision.
“Last year, Titan XD impressed RMAP voters with Nissan’s second generation truck, engineered and assembled in the USA,” said David Muramoto, president, Rocky Mountain Automotive Press. “For 2018, Nissan has scored an unusual follow-up victory with the gas-powered version of the Titan and the half-ton King Cab chassis in the RMAP Truck of the Year voting.”
The Titan King Cab is marked by its available 6-person seating, wide-opening rear doors and available “rear seat delete” option, which is ideal for commercial use with its flat floor and secure in-cab storage space. Like all 2018 Titan and Titan XD models, the Titan King Cab is covered by Nissan’s “America’s Best Truck Warranty” featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. (See dealer for limited warranty details.)
The half-ton Titan King Cab is offered in 4×4 and 4×2 drive and three grade levels – S, SV and PRO-4X – each equipped with a standard 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine and 7-speed automatic transmission. Titan King Cab offers an available maximum towing capacity of 9,420 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 1,640 pounds when properly equipped.
