The Titan XD currently only offers the 5.0-liter Cummins diesel, but soon the truck will be available with a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 and will start at a base price of $36,485. Those looking for a Titan XD with the 5.0-liter Cummins diesel will have to spend at least $41,485.
The 5.6-liter V8 features variable valve event and lift, direct injection, and is rated at 390 hp available from 5,800 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque available at 4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic capable of rev matching downshifts.
That price will get you a Titan XD S Crew Cab with two-wheel drive, while adding four-wheel drive to the base truck drives the price up by $3,000.
On the top end of the spectrum, a Titan XD Platinum Reserve Crew Cab with the 5.6-liter V8 will cost $56,715.
There are five trim levels in total, with pricing coming in at $43,205 for the Titan XD SV, $47,165 for the off-road Pro-4X model and finally $51,225 for the Titan XD SL. All of these prices includes four-wheel drive.
Nissan also took the chance at the New York Auto Show to roll out the non-XD Titan variant once again. It is also powered by the 5.6-liter V8 while a V6 engine will be offered, though details on it are still unknown.
The Titan half-ton will initially launch as a crew cab model, while single and king cab options will launch sometime later in the model year.
“TITAN will compete in the heart of the full-size pickup segment – the half-ton – while the TITAN XD provides a unique solution for customers by bridging the cost and capability gap between traditional half-ton and full heavy-duty pickups, ” said Fred Diaz, division VP and general manager of North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles for Nissan.
The Titan half-ton is built on an entirely different chassis than the XD which is about 14.7-inches shorter than the beefed up XD model. Just like the XD, the standard Titan will offer 5.5, 6.5 and 8-foot bed length options along with five trim levels, S, SV, Pro-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.
