Nissan has followed up the release of the Titan and Titan XD
Crew Cab trucks with Titan and Titan XD Single Cab
models. Already the Titan XD is available in dealerships.
The 2017 Nissan Titan Single Cab truck on the other hand will
arrive in the fall of this year as a 2017 model vehicle. Both
the Titan and Titan XD Single Cab trucks are offered in regular
cab and long bed body styles.
Nissan is aiming the trucks to fleet owners and commercial
businesses where these kinds of trucks offer high functionality
with less investment as they cost less than their heavy duty
and Crew Cab counterparts. The trucks are offered in S and SV
trim levels. The models are based on the larger Titan
pickup truck. Read along to find out more:
2017 Nissan Titan Single cab Exterior
The Single Cab trucks have adopted their exterior styling cues
from the larger Titan trucks. At the front, the trucks feature
a similar gigantic grille with the bold “TITAN’ lettering. Its
front fenders are bulging, a fete repeated on the rear fenders.
The base S trim features a black painted grille and rides on
17-inch steel wheels. The wheels are wrapped in LT-rated tires.
The truck also features black mirror caps and black door
handles. The SV trim on the other hand features an extensive
use of chrome trim on the bumpers, grille and on door handles.
The SV trim rides on 17-inch alloy wheels. There is an option
for a 2-tone paint scheme.
The Titan and Titan XD Single Cab trucks feature full-size
cargo beds i.e. 8-ft long cargo beds. Absence of the Pro-4X and
Platinum trims means the Titan Single Cabs miss a host of
premium exterior cues.
2017 Nissan Titan Single cab Interior
The interior of the Titan Single Cabs is adopted from the Titan
Crew Cabs. However, the Single Cab models miss out on
leather upholstery, driving aids and upgraded electronics in
the Crew Cabs. The trucks will accommodate 3 passengers.
Each person will have his or her own 3-point seatbelt on the
40/20/40 split bench.
The interior is offered in darker smoke grey or light tan
colors. The darker grey will be more appealing to buyers due to
the nature of work these trucks are involved in. The S trim
features vinyl flooring while the SV features color-keyed
Other features include keyless entry and ignition and a larger
display screen flanked by two analog gauges. Power locks and
windows are offered as standard.
Engine Specs and performance
The Titan Single Cab will be powered by two drive-trains. The
first engine will be a 5.6 L, V-8 gasoline engine which
produces 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired
to a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
According to Nissan, a 3.0 L, V6 engine will be offered later.
This is the same engine will power the Titan Crew Cab; however,
Nissan has not released specs of this engine. The Titan XD
Single Cab on the other hand is powered by the same V8 engine
as the standard Titan Single Cab. The XD adds a Cummins 5.0 L,
V-8 turbo-diesel mill which pumps out 310 hp and a whopping 555
lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic
Price and release date
As said earlier, the Titan will be released to dealerships in
the fall. The automaker has not announced official prices for
the 2017 Nissan Titan Single Cab. However, the models will slot
below the already released Titan XD Single Cabs. I think a
starting price of around $28,000 is a good guess.
Nissan is targeting the Chevrolet
Ford F-150 and Ram pickup
trucks with the new Titan Single Cab and Titan XD Single
