Caught Undisguised: 2017 Nissan Titan Regular Cab

Posted in News on February 11, 2016

Nissan fully revealed the 2017 Titan earlier today, showing the light-duty truck in crew-cab form, sporting a 5.5-foot bed. But the company promised its 1/2-ton would also be available as a regular cab and King Cab, and now, we’ve seen fully undisguised photos of the former.

The red pickup shown here has an 8-foot bed sitting behind its two-door, single-row cabin. This is a body configuration never before offered on a Titan, as its predecessor was available as a King Cab or crew cab only (although buyers could option a King Cab with an 8-foot bed for a few years). The truck in these images doesn’t have vents on its front fenders; we initially assumed that would be a hallmark of the non-XD Titan, but the truck Nissan showed in its reveal today had fender vents and V-8 badges. We now suspect that all V-8s will get vents, while trucks equipped with an as-yet-unknown base V-6 will have unadorned fenders.

If that’s the case, that would make this regular cab the lineup’s value leader. An inexpensive V-6 and spacious bed would make this Titan perfect for plumber and contractor duty, and Nissan’s aggressive pricing on the Titan XD suggests a similar value proposition for standard Titans compared to their 1/2-ton rivals. The company says the light-duty Titan will be available with two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, although it hasn’t confirmed if a V-6 4x4 will be available.

We should get our mitts on the Titan later this year when it hits showrooms. Till then, we’ll keep you updated with anything we learn.
