Which Nissan Truck Is the Perfect Fit for Me?
Shopping around for a new pickup truck? Nissan offers three great options loaded with features to suit every pickup driver. All you need to do is decide which one is the best fit.
The Nissan Frontier is the smallest and most affordable option with a decent towing capacity and essential safety features. In fact, the 2017 Nissan Frontier offers the lowest starting price in its class, making it the most budget-friendly pickup you can own.
As with all Nissan trucks, the Frontier is available in various configurations, including extended “King” cab and crew cab. You can also choose from a 5-foot or 6.1-foot bed length. The base S trim starts with rear privacy glass, 15-inch steel wheels, and manual-adjusting cloth bucket seats. Opt for the automatic transmission for cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls, air conditioning, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a four-speaker audio system with a CD player. This trim offers all the basics you need for a reliable work truck on any budget.
Moving up to the upper trims throws in extra features like a NissanConnect touch-screen interface, upgraded upholstery, satellite radio, bigger alloy wheels, and fog lights. The popular Pro-4X trim is the best option for serious off-roaders, as it boasts specially tuned shocks, skid plates, a locking rear differential, and a navigation system. You can also opt for a bed extender and trailer hitch.
Buying the Nissan Titan is a smart move for people wanting a half-ton pickup that’s more heavy-duty than the Frontier. This full-size light-duty pickup has been completely redesigned for 2017 and looks more aggressive than ever, boasting a sleek cabin design and a mighty V8 engine for maximum performance.
The 2017 Titan is also offered in various configurations, including single cab, King cab, and crew cab. Its 5.6-liter V8 engine is rated at 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque to assist with those larger hauls, making the Titan the perfect option when you need to tow over 9,000 pounds.
The pickup is available with a short or long bed depending on the cab style, with the crew cab seating up to six depending on the equipment. The basic Titan S work truck features 18-inch steel wheels, manual mirrors, power windows, air conditioning, vinyl flooring, and cloth upholstery. You’ll also love the 5-inch color display, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, six-speaker sound system with CD player, and NissanConnect mobile apps.
Upper Titan trims throw in extra luxuries like all-terrain tires, alloy wheels, Trailer Sway Control, and chrome accents.
The Titan’s bigger brother, the 2017 Titan HD is Nissan’s heavy-duty option. It’s essentially the same as the Titan in looks and features, but beefs things up in terms of towing capabilities and payload. In fact, the Titan HD with the diesel engine can tow more than 12,000 pounds. When you need a sleek-looking truck suited to carrying all your heavy loads, the Titan HD can’t be beat.
