2017 Nissan Titan XD Glendale Heights IL
Sometimes all you need is a basic pickup truck for your everyday tasks. You might throw some landscaping materials in the back when you redo your lawn in the summer, or you might tow your boat to the lake, but you won’t be putting it through its paces. If that describes your needs, then the 2017 Nissan Titan XD in Glendale Heights IL might not be for you. This rugged version of the Titan is the extra heavy-duty model you require if you tend to be hard on your vehicle and need something robust.
A common question is how the Titan XD differs from the regular Titan. Simply put, it’s a reinforced model that is built with more commercial components so that it can hold up to the sort of work that contractors put their vehicles through. You’ll find more engine options, like the Cummins V8, but the actual size of the Titan XD is the same as the Titan. You can find single or crew cabs, and soon the King Cab will offer even more passenger space. Expect heavy duty brakes and increased payload capacity.
Engine options are always an important decision, but this is especially true for large trucks. The Titan XD comes standard with the 390 horsepower/ 394 pound-feet 5.6-liter V8, but the Cummins 5.0-liter DOHC V8 Turbo Diesel is that top choice as it offers up 310horsepower and 555 pound feet of torque.
Pickup trucks are expensive, which means that corners are often cut when it comes to standard features. Not so in the Titan XD, which comes with remote keyless entry with push-button start, NissanConnect, Bluetooth, a/c, power windows and cruise control with steering wheel buttons.
What you want to know about any truck you’re going to purchase is what it can do. The base towing capacity for the 2017 Nissan Titan XD is 12,640 pounds with a max payload of 2,910 pounds. This is the maximum towing capability for the model, and not all configurations are rated for towing.
Bigger is better in the 2017 Nissan Titan XD
We like to say bigger is better, but the 2017 Nissan Titan XD isn’t larger than the regular Nissan. Instead it’s just a bolder option for those who need a more durable choice or even those who simply appreciate the Cummins diesel engine. The Titan XD earns high praise for offering just the right value when it comes to cost and performance, and the interior layout will let you forget the days when buying a pickup truck meant sacrificing comfort.
The 2017 Titan XD comes in single or crew cabs, with a larger King Cab to be offered in the future. Each configuration is available with either the gasoline or diesel engine, and both can be found in S or SV trim levels. Crew cab options also have PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve trims, which offer more premium features. The single cab has an 8-foot bed, while the crew cab has a 6.5-foot bed.
