Nissan has finally introduced the King Cab body style for its Titan and Titan XD pickups. This marks the third and final body style offered by the Titan, adding to the four-door Crew Cab and two-door Regular Cab. All three cabs, combined with several bed lengths, cover a large portion of the personal and commercial pickup truck market, including fleet buyers. The King Cab utilizes rear-hinged doors for entry into the second-row bench seat. Nissan is also offering the industry’s first rear bench delete option, giving commercial buyers more interior cargo room without having to purchase the larger Crew Cab.
Fred Diaz, VP and GM for Nissan North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, summed up the Titan King Cab’s launch by saying:
“The launch of the new King Cab body is the last step in a journey that began in December 2015 with the debut of the breakthrough Titan XD, which continues to carve out a unique white space between competitors’ heavy-duty and half-ton trucks. Now, with the addition of a half-ton Titan, our new Endurance V-8, three body configurations, three bed lengths and a range of grade levels and equipment packages, we’re covering nearly every segment in the personal and commercial full-size truck markets. Add to that the industry’s best five-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and the Titan family is even more compelling.”
The King Cab is offered on both the Titan and Titan XD, and can be paired with three trim levels. These include the base S grade, mid-level SV, and off-road biased PRO-4X. The truck will come standard with RWD, but 4WD is optional. All Titan models currently come standard with the new 5.6-liter Endurance V-8 backed by a seven-speed automatic transmission. Titan XDs can be optioned with the 5.0-liter Cummins V-8 turbodiesel, which is paired with an Aisin six-speed automatic built for heavy-duty use.
The half-ton Titan King Cab is rated to tow 9,420 pounds or haul 1.640 pounds in the bed. Opting for the Titan XD boosts those max numbers to 12,510 pounds and 2,710 pounds respectively.
