Nissan’s engineering team made an absolute commitment to developing the Titan XD truck, and the 2018 Nissan Titan XD is almost heading to the showrooms. The design team tried to think out-of-the-box when creating this new machine. This time, Nissan Titan becomes more prominent than a five-ton truck but a little smaller than a seven-ton one.
Outwardly, the revised Nissan Titan XD not only acquires extended proportions but also becomes heavier than before. The reason is that plans are virtually ripe for Nissan to launch a smaller version of the Nissan Titan truck. This half-ton diesel truck brings a host of vital adjustments for the next model year.
2018 Nissan Titan XD – Exterior Changes and Interior Cabin Styling
The Nissan manufacturer says the 2018 Nissan Titan XD truck will not feature a full aluminum body. Nevertheless, the next-gen vehicle is slated to incorporate high-strength steel and some traces of aluminum. Additionally, you should expect to find a larger bumper that includes three separate color choices.
The next generation Nissan Titan XD truck will comprise a chrome-grille in its front fascia. This façade will host some elements like daytime running lights and fog lamps. Its taillights will get furnished with the LED lighting feature. Sources close to Nissan have hinted at the possibility of exhaust pipes in chrome and hook in the car’s bumper at the façade. The inbound Titan XD is likely to ride on 17-inch steel wheels as standard, while 18-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels come as an option.
The next-gen Nissan Titan XD would come with either two-or four-door design. Depending on the chosen model, it can accommodate between three and six adult passengers. Just like in the case of the previous versions, Nissan avails its truck is in five diverse trim options.
The cabin area of the 2018 Nissan Titan XD borrows inspirations from other previous Nissan trucks, though no major changes are available. The interiors will have the front seats with a temperature control option. The overall interior is furnished with leather upholstery.
The less-equipped trims have their interiors made up of black plastic fittings, whereas the top-spec Platinum options have their unique set of fancy features. For instance, the top-tier Platinum Reserve model will feature a luxurious variety of elements in the interior, such as leather and chrome.
2018 Nissan Titan XD – Engine and Gearbox
We believe that the upcoming 2018 Nissan Titan XD pickup truck is going to come with a 5.6-liter V8 engine. This motor is potent and is associated with 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. The supposed unit already has a robust output, but Nissan engineers say they will tune it up to further escalate the production. A well-placed source also suggested the likelihood of a new cooling system, which dramatically enhances the overall efficiency. This cooling system will similarly prove handy in realizing a better fuel economy.
We do not know which type of transmission will be featured on this drive. However, the odds are that the car maker is going to utilize a 7-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. The rear-wheel-drive is standard, but we also have the all-wheel-drive system as optional.
2018 Nissan Titan XD – Date of Release, Pricing and Rivals
Official pricing details and release dates are still unknown. Nonetheless, some sources point out that the 2018 Nissan Titan XD will grace the auto showrooms in this fall. We suspect that prices won’t stray much from the ongoing Nissan Titan XD, given that no significant changes are in store for us.
The basic trim should start at slightly above $39,000 while the top-spec option should sell at $64,355. All price quotes include the destination fees. The 2018 Nissan Titan XD will take on the Chevy Silverado 2500HD, the Ford F-250, and the RAM 2500.
