It has been announced that the new 2017 Nissan Titan will be available in two variations regular and XD. This all American vehicle has been designed in California, and it will have a big impact on the pickup truck market.
Price and Release date of new Titan
After official introduction to the automotive industry in 2015, it is assumed that 2017 Nissan Titan XD should become available for purchase during the first half of 2016. At the moment there are no official information released by the car’s manufacturer.
The projected price should start at around 30.000, but according to some sources it might rise as high as 46.00$. These estimations might end up being inaccurate, and the more information will surface once the 2017 Nissan Titan finds itself in the dealerships and ready for sales. Its main competitors are 2016 GMC Sierra 1500, 2017 Ram 1500 and 2017 Toyota Tundra, and prices like these will make the forthcoming Titan XD more than just competitive.
2017 Nissan Titan XD Engine
The 2015 Titan XD is fueled with a 5 liter Cummins V8 diesel engine with 310 horsepower. Rumors say that a shift towards V6 engine is going to take place, but at this moment it remains unclear whether or not this engine will be capable of the same performance as the one on the previous model. It is said that V6 is rather fuel efficient and that it has a remarkable efficiency at 15 miles per gallon.
