What’s New for the 2017 Nissan Titan?
The Nissan Titan was not offered for the 2016 model year. The 2017 Nissan Titan differentiates itself from the 2015 model due to its revised styling both inside and out, as well as underneath the hood where its V8 engine comes with 73 additional horsepower.

2017 Nissan Titan Performance
Every 2017 Nissan Titan comes standard with a gasoline-powered 5.6-liter V8 engine that’s rated at 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. That motor comes paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission, which helps the Titan earn its maximum trailering rating of 9,390 pounds. The Cummins diesel engine that’s offered with the Titan XD is not available with the regular Titan pickup truck. However, a new V6 motor will eventually be offered with the Titan. Also, as previously mentioned, the 2017 Titan is available in both 2WD and 4WD.
2017 Nissan Titan Efficiency
Thanks to its lone available engine, every 2017 Nissan Titan yields EPA-estimated fuel economy of 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, regardless of whether it’s front-wheel or all-wheel drive. On the other hand, the FWD version of the 2017 Titan is good for 18 mpg combined, while the AWD variant only yields 17 mpg combined. The new Nissan Titan pickup truck comes standard with a 26 gallon fuel tank.
2017 Nissan Titan Ultimate Interior
The 2017 Nissan Titan has a spacious and refined cabin that comes standard with a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning, cloth seating, and a push-button ignition system. The new Titan also features spacious rear seats that provide more than 38 inches of legroom, while an optional rear DVD entertainment system adds even more extravagance and style. On top of those features, the higher-level Pro-4X model comes with additional luxury equipment, such as dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rearview camera.
