The Nissan Titan was often criticized for only being offered as a crew cab, something that Nissan is eager to change with its redesigned lineup of Titan pickup trucks which will be offered with three different cab styles: the already available Crew Cab, upcoming King Cab and the freshly announced Single Cab.
The Single Cab will be offered with an eight-foot bed and a choice of engines depending on which truck is picked. Customers that opt the for the Titan XD Single Cab will be able to get the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel under the hood with 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. These buyers will also get an extra foot of wheelbase, a thicker frame and larger brakes.
The 5.6-liter gas-powered V8 will be available on both Titan and Titan XD Single Cab models, putting out 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. Eventually a V6 will join the lineup for non-XD Titans.
Five trim levels are offered in total on the Titan, though Single Cab models will only come in the lowest two, S and SV, no doubt a play to attract workers and tradesmen to the truck.
Thanks to the new Single Cab models, the Titan has a new maximum towing capacity: 12,640 pounds. This is on the Titan XD Single Cab with the 5.0-liter diesel, while with the gasoline engine, this truck can pull 11,590 lbs. Maximum payload is rated at 2,910 lbs for the gas-powered model and 2,420 for the diesel.
Standard Titan Single Cab models will be able to tow a maximum of 9,730 lbs and haul 1,930 lbs of payload.
Both Single Cab models are expected to be on sale this fall.
