2017 Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve crew cab

Pros: Redesigned model offers new comfort, convenience, safety, and utility features; Titan XD model could hit “just-right” market niche in between half-ton and heavy-duty pickup trucks

Cons: Significant price premium for Cummins diesel engine; overall model lineup remains limited compared to domestic-brand competitors

CG Says: For 2017, Nissan’s redesigned Titan half-ton pickup line joins the XD models introduced last year. Initially, only crew cabs are offered, but extended cabs and regular cabs will be introduced later in the model year. The new half-ton models share a 5.6-liter V8 with XD. Later, a V6 will be available. The Titan XD essentially splits the difference between a traditional half-ton pickup and a heavy-duty three-quarter-ton model. XD is powered by either a 5.0-liter Cummins diesel with 555 lb-ft of torque or a gasoline 5.6-liter V8 rated at 390 horsepower. Nissan claims the Titan XD model has a maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds, but will offer the fuel efficiency and affordability of a half-ton pickup.
