The 2017 Nissan Titan Regular Cab model has been spied undisguised, but it wasn’t driving.
The truck, which is set to arrive some time this summer, was being transported on a large forklift.
The Japanese automaker has only launched the 2016 Nissan Titan XD so far, powered by a 5.0-liter turbodiesel V8 engine, while the light-duty models will arrive as model year 2017. Based on its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, the Titan XD is technically a three-quarter ton truck, though Nissan calls it a heavy half-ton. The Nissan Titan Regular Cab will directly compete with the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado.
Unlike the last Nissan Titan truck, the new Titan will have a much broader lineup to appeal to a wide range of buyers, including the addition of a regular cab model for basic commercial needs. What’s seen in these spy photos will likely be a price leader for Nissan, appealing to those that need a basic truck for work purposes.
The light-duty 2017 Nissan Titan will likely make its debut this summer with a V6 engine as standard. Expect a more powerful 5.6-liter gasoline V8 to be available as an option that will also be offered on the Titan XD.
