NASHVILLE, Tennessee – The 2016 Nissan Titan XD full-size pickup truck arrives at Nissan dealerships today with a starting price of $41,485.
The base price is for the S Crew Cab 4×2 model and includes a $1,195 destination charge.
The Titan is sold in two frame sizes, the larger of which is called XD. Pricing and details have not been released for the non-XD version of the light-duty Titan, which trails the XD into dealerships by a few months.
The Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab 4×4 is priced at $52,165, including shipping.
The top-of-the-line Titan XD Platinum Crew Cab 4×4 starts at $61,715, including shipping.
A rear DVD entertainment package adds $2,190 to the bottom line. Other options include $395 Premium White exterior paint, a $985 Titan box bedliner with built-in storage and a $345 electronic tailgate lock.
The Titan XD is one of the finalists for the 2016 North American Truck of the Year.
It is equipped with a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbodiesel engine that delivers 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Given this powertrain and its bigger, stouter frame, Nissan considers the XD a bridge between half-ton trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 and their heavy-duty siblings.
Edmunds says: Nissan is touting the Titan XD as the “perfect midpoint” truck in terms of size, price and capability. Now it’s up to truck buyers to determine if it indeed hits the sweet spot.
