Nissan will offer King Cab versions of its 2017 Titan and Titan XD pickups, which allows Nissan to offer three cab options to buyers, along with the previously announced Single Cab and Crew Cab TItan models.
The King Cab Titan and Titan XD debuted during a media event at the Chicago Auto Show, which runs from Feb. 11 to 20. Nissan also brought a specially built Nissan NV Cargo X and two specially modified Titan PRO-4X models.
The King Cab arrives with two traditional doors and two wide-opening rear latching doors. It offers available six-person seating and an available rear seat delete option for commercial use with its flat floor and secure in-cab storage space. The seat delete option also removes the rear heater duct and rear roof-mounted assist grips and adds a flat rear load floor and rear wall finisher with tie-down hooks.
The new King Cab body features a roomy cab with a choice of front split bench seat or front bucket seats (standard on PRO-4X, optional on SV grade). A 60/40-split fold-down rear seat is also standard. Heated front seats are available with PRO-4X and SV grade, along with optional heated and cooled front seats on PRO-4X.
The Titan King Cab will be offered in 4x4 and rear-wheel drive and three grade levels – S, SV, and PRO-4X – with a standard 390-hp 5.6L Endurance V-8 engine and 7-speed automatic transmission. Titan King Cab offers an available maximum towing capacity of 9,420 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 1,640 pounds when properly equipped.
The Titan XD King Cab will be available in 4x4 and rear-wheel drive and three grade levels – S, SV, and PRO-4X. Titan XD King Cab can be powered by the 390-hp 5.6L Endurance V-8 engine with 7-speed automatic or Cummins 5.0L V-8 Turbo Diesel – rated at 310 hp and 555 lb.-ft. of torque – matched with a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin A466ND automatic transmission. Titan XD King Cab offers an available maximum towing capacity of 12,510 pounds (diesel engine) and maximum payload capacity of 2,710 pounds (gasoline engine) when properly equipped.
As part of the American Titan lineup, the new King Cab was developed with core Nissan planning, design, engineering and manufacturing teams contributing from Tennessee, California, Michigan, Arizona, and Mississippi. The Titan and Titan XD King Cabs are assembled in Canton, Miss., with its V-8 engines assembled in Decherd, Tenn., and Cummins diesel engines assembled in Columbus, Ind.
All 2017 Titan and Titan XD models are covered by Nissan's "America's Best Truck Warranty" – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of five-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first. Vehicles covered by the new warranty, which includes basic and powertrain coverage, include all V-8 gasoline and diesel powered models.
