At the 2017 Chicago Auto show today, Nissan introduced its latest edition to the Titan lineup, adding King Cab options to the existing single cab and crew cab versions.  

The Titan King Cab can seat 6 or has the option of a rear seat delete for secure in cab storage ideal for commercial use.  Titan King Cab will be available in 4x2 and 4x4 configuration with the 5.6 liter 390 horsepower Endurance V8 and 7-Speed Automatic standard. When properly equipped, the half ton King Cab can tow up 9,420 lbs and carry up to 1,640 pounds of payload.

Titan XD King Cab comes standard with the same powertrain as the regular Titan or can be equipped with the Cummins 5.0 liter Turbo Diesel good for 310 hp or 555 lb-ft of torque routed through an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission. Titan XD fills a niche between half-ton and 3/4-ton trucks by offering a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,510 lbs and a payload 2,710 lbs when properly equipped. 

Both Titan and Titan XD come with a 5 year / 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, the best warranty in the truck segment. 

Titan and Titan XD are assembled in Canton, Mississippi and will go on sale this spring.

Nissan adds new King Cab body style to complete lineup of award winning TITAN and TITAN XD models 
 
• New King Cab body added to previous Crew Cab and Single Cab configurations – on sale spring 2017 • King Cab available for both TITAN half-ton and TITAN XD with 6.5-foot bed length • Retains rear hinge door design with wide-opening feature for easy access to 2nd row • Offered in S, SV and PRO-4X trim levels, available with first-in-segment “rear seat delete” for extra utility, fully flat load floor and secure storage space • Like all 2017 TITAN and TITAN XD models, new King Cab backed by America’s Best Truck 100,000-mile / 5-year Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty1 
 
CHICAGO (Feb. 9, 2017) – Nissan today revealed the new 2017 TITAN and TITAN XD King Cab models, completing the lineup of innovative new full-size pickups. The world debut announcement came during a media event at the Chicago Auto Show. Also on display at the show, which runs at Chicago’s McCormick Place from February 11-20, are a specially built Nissan NV Cargo X and two specially modified TITAN PRO-4X models. 
 
The new King Cab is marked by its available 6-person seating, wide-opening rear doors and available “rear seat delete” option that is ideal for commercial use with its flat floor and secure in-cab storage space. 
 
“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,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. “Now, with the addition of a half-ton TITAN, our new Endurance® V8, 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 5-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and the TITAN family is even more compelling.” 
 
The TITAN King Cab will be offered in 4x4 and 4x2 drive and three grade levels – S, SV and PRO-4X – each with a standard 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine and 7speed automatic transmission. TITAN King Cab offers an available maximum towing capacity of 9,420 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 1,640 pounds when properly equipped. 
 
The TITAN XD King Cab similarly will be available in 4x4 and 4x2 drive and three grade levels – S, SV and PRO-4X. Two driveline choices are offered with the TITAN XD King Cab: the 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine with 7-speed automatic or powerful Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel – rated at 310 horsepower and a hefty 555 lb-ft of torque – matched with a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin A466ND automatic transmission. TITAN XD King Cab offers an available maximum towing capacity of 12,510 pounds (diesel engine) and maximum payload capacity of 2,710 pounds (gas engine) when properly equipped. 
 
Like the TITAN and TITAN XD Crew Cab and Single Cab models, the new King Cab body was designed by Nissan Design America in San Diego, California. The body features a roomy cab with a choice of front split bench seat or front bucket seats (standard on PRO-4X, optional on SV grade). A 60/40-split fold-down rear seat is also standard. Heated front seats are available with PRO-4X and SV grade, along with optional heated and cooled front seats on PRO-4X. 
 
The new King Cab also offers a first-in-segment “rear seat delete” option, which removes the rear seat, rear heater duct and rear roof-mounted assist grips and adds a flat rear load floor and rear wall finisher with tie-down hooks.  
 
 “This feature is going to be extremely well received by commercial truck buyers for its extra utility and secure, climate-safe storage space inside the cab. It’s a real workhorse like the new Single Cab, but with more flexibility to stow equipment and other valuables,” said Diaz. “Nissan is becoming a strong player in the commercial vehicle market with our NV vans and industry leading warranty. Now, with the new King Cab and Single Cab models, we expect to grow our worksite presence with TITAN and TITAN XD as well.” 
 
As part of the American TITAN lineup, the new King Cab was developed with core Nissan planning, design, engineering and manufacturing teams contributing from Tennessee, California, Michigan, Arizona and Mississippi. The TITAN and TITAN XD King Cabs are assembled in Canton, Mississippi, with its V8 engines assembled in Decherd, Tennessee and Cummins diesel engines assembled in Columbus, Indiana. 
 
All 2017 TITAN and TITAN XD models are covered by Nissan’s “America’s Best Truck Warranty”1 – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first. Vehicles covered by the new warranty, which includes basic and powertrain coverage, include all V8 gasoline and diesel powered models.

Meh, :glare: Nothing newly different, US trucks have had this for forever. What makes you so special Nissan? You need to offer something the rest do not have.

Pretty basic looking...but at least it is a choice....

The white one is the Work Truck model. You can get it loaded up also, they just didn't have one on the floor for me to take pictures of.

Yeah, I saw the other one too. Still feel the same way...still kinda plain jane. But  that being said, I like the fact it doesn't scream logos all over it either-nice change there. Interior is nice though. Hope it sells well though, at least in my case....8)

Underseat storage & rear leg room in the ext cab looks pathetic & unusable.

Diesel option has same power figures Duramax did in 2004 (ya: 6.6L vs. 5.0L. Still). While it's certainly competent, it's not going to gain many converts (I realize this is a light duty truck; "filling the niche between 1/2-ton & 3/4-ton" prose not withstanding).

      The current Nissan Frontier has been with us for over a decade and not much has changed with it. It has put Nissan well behind the pack of newer models from GM, Honda, and Toyota. Back in April, Nissan's North America vice president Christian Meunier the Frontier has future, hinting to us that a new model is on the horizon.
      Car and Driver reports that Nissan has officially announced that a new Frontier is coming and will be built at the company's Canton, Mississippi plant - currently home to the current model. Nissan also said that the arrival of the new Frontier is more than a year away.
      Not much more information was given on the next Frontier. A previous rumor had Nissan using the Navara pickup sold elsewhere in the world. But as we reported back in April, Meunier put a stop to this idea. He explained that the Navara was more of lifestyle vehicle, like a Honda Ridgeline. The next Frontier would be a true truck. Though we're wondering if Nissan's North America office has ever driven the Navara as reviews have it being as capable and riding as well as the Frontier.

      Leaf 2.0 Spec's Leak Online

      Spy's seem to be getting the upper hand at Nissan or Nissan is deciding to take an aggressive attack on controlling the release of data about the Nissan Leaf 2.0. While the rumors of multiple size of batteries is unconfirmed and no comment from Nissan since earlier this year word of a 340 mile battery pack option would be available, we do have confirmed base starting points for the price at each of the three trim levels.
      Leaf 2.0 will have the following specifications:
      147 HP with 236 pound feet of torque
      Base Battery is 40 kWh
      Base Trim starting price:
      S - $29,990
      SV - $32,490
      SL - $36,200
      Curb Weight 3,433
      Full reveal to the public - September 5th 2017
      You can click review the full details of the Leaf 2.0 here at the Autoblog story. It gives full details about the car and some are rather interesting. Example is that the Chevrolet Bolt has a 10" screen and the Leaf 2.0 is showing a 5" screen. Interior cargo capacity is 30 cubic feet. HP is a bump up from Leaf 1.0 as they go from 107 and 187 to 147 and 236. Yet this is a far cry from the Bolts 200 and 266. Also we now know that the Leaf 2.0 will have a 40kWh base battery compared to 60kWh for the Bolt and the Tesla 3's 50 kWh base battery or 75 kWh battery option. The leaf will have a standard 36 month or 36,000 mile warranty and 60 month or 60,000 mile power train warranty. 
      Leaf 2.0 kicks the Bolt's and Tesla 3's butt is in pricing with a base starting price of $29,990 compared to Bolts $37,495 base price and Tesla 3 $35,000 base price even though you have to wait till end of 2018 to get a base Tesla 3 and these prices are before any federal and or state rebates / credits.

      Based on the carscoop's story they have taken the cameo and a Photoshop job of what they expect the final Leaf 2.0 to look like.
