Nissan this week announced a new single cab version of its Titan full-size pickup. The single cab model – the first time this variation has been offered in the Titan lineup – is designed for the commercial fleet and work truck market, Nissan said.
The Titan is currently available in crew cab configuration. A king cab will also be offered in the future.
The single cab will be equipped with two engine choices – a Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel or Nissan’s new 5.6L Endurance V8 gasoline engine.
“Once we complete the roll-out of all Titan cab, bed, powertrain and grade level configurations, our all-new Titan family will cover about 85% of the total light pickup marketplace," said Rich Miller, director of product planning for Trucks, SUVs and Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. and chief product specialist for Titan and Titan XD. “More importantly, the Titan XD and Titan single cabs will have the power, torque, heavy duty chassis and durability demanded by today's demanding worksites – including the highest towing capacities and payloads in the lineup.”
That full product lineup will eventually include the three cab styles, three bed lengths, three engine options, 4x4 and 4x2 drive, and S, SV, SL, PRO-4X and Platinum Reserve trim levels. The new single cab will be offered in both Titan XD and Titan configurations, with both versions sharing the same cab dimensions and 8-ft. pickup beds but completely separate fully boxed ladder frame chassis.
The Cummins V8 is rated 310 hp. and 555 lbs.-ft. of torque; and the Endurance V8 is rated at 390 hp. and 394 lbs.-ft. of torque.
The single cab, with about a foot shorter wheelbase, will be offered initially with the new 5.6L Endurance V8 with a V6 optional engine to be available at a later date. Diesel equipped models feature an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission and V8 gasoline engine equipped versions will utilize a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The single cab models will be assembled in Canton, MI, with the V8 gasoline engine assembled in Decherd, TN. The Cummins diesel engines will be assembled by Cummins in Columbus, IN.
Titan single cabs will have a maximum payload of 1,930 lbs. with a tow capacity of 9,730 lbs. and maximum gross combined weight rating of 15,300 lbs. The Titan XD single cab will offer 2,910 lbs. max payload for the gas engine and 2,420 lbs. when equipped with the diesel. Towing capacity is 11,590 lbs. for gas and 12,640 lbs. for diesel and gross combined weight rating is 17,700 lbs. for gas and 19,450 lbs. for diesel.
