DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - September 29, 2016) -

  • New Texas TITAN adds custom exterior treatments to TITAN XD and TITAN Crew Cab 4x4 and 4x2 models
  • Offered in TITAN XD SV and SL grades with choice of advanced Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel or 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engines
  • Texas TITAN half-ton models available with V8-equipped SV and SL grades

A new "Texas TITAN" package joins the Nissan TITAN lineup for the first time for the 2017 model year, adding a range of custom appearance features including a special chrome grille and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The Texas TITAN package is available in a range of two TITAN and four TITAN XD Crew Cab grades, including 4x4 and 4x2 drive configurations.

The addition of the special appearance package is part of the ongoing expansion of the Nissan full-size pickup lineup as it enters its second year of production. Once the roll-out of all TITAN cab, bed, powertrain and grade level configurations is complete, the TITAN family will cover about 85 percent of the total light pickup marketplace.

The new 2017 Texas TITAN includes:

  • Chrome inner and outer grille finish
  • 20-inch chrome aluminum-alloy wheels
  • Metallic-finish kick plates
  • Texas TITAN floor mats
  • Chrome exhaust finishers
  • Texas TITAN badging

"TITAN XD was named 'Texas Truck of the Year' last fall by the Texas Auto Writers Association so it's fitting to acknowledge the Lone Star State with this special vehicle," said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. "For native Texans like myself, the Texas TITAN is the perfect representation of Texas attitude - big horsepower, big torque, huge capabilities."

Every Texas TITAN comes with "America's Best Truck Warranty"1, featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first. The warranty is available on every 2017 TITAN and TITAN XD.

TITAN XD models feature an available integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame and easily accessible in the bed.

In addition, 2017 TITAN XD and TITAN Single Cab models, the first-ever single cab offering in TITAN history, are designed to provide an affordable and rugged entry-point in the commercial fleet/work truck market. The Single Cab is the second of three eventual TITAN body configurations, joining the current Crew Cab and future King Cab. The Single Cab models are scheduled to go on sale in late fall 2016.
