Nissan Releases Details for the 2024 Titan

Nissan has released pricing and technical specifications for the 2024 Titan pickup truck series, but it could also be the end of the line for Nissan’s long-running V8-powered truck series as the Japanese carmaker shifts towards electric powertrains. The Titan has been in production for 20 years.

The 2024 Titan lineup will consist of four models with sub-variants, although the underlying architecture between the trims – except for the XD tier – is essentially identical. Nissan says the Titan S grade and SV King Cab 4×2 have been discontinued. The least expensive base SV trim includes a crew cab and rear-wheel drive and starts at $45,770, while the top-spec XD Platinum Reserve Crew Cab trim with 4-wheel drive will run $65,840.

Between the two sits the Titan SV King Cab 4×4 ($49,140), the SV Crew Cab 4×4 ( $48,960), Pro-4X Crew Cab 4×4 ($53,580), Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×2 ($59,440 ), and the Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×4 ($62,750). The base XD SV variant will be $51,930. The XD Pro-4X Crew Cab will run $57,890. Nissan said the trucks will include a 5-year/100,000-mile warranty. All models seat five except the base SV crew cab work truck, which seats six.

Nissan says the larger XD trim is “built on a unique frame and chassis” with an extended wheelbase. The bed is about 12 inches longer than the other models at 6.5 feet, and the truck is about 15 inches longer overall. XD Models are only available with four-wheel drive and get power from a 400-horsepower naturally aspirated gas-fed DOHC 5.6-liter V8 making 413 pound-feet of torque.

The same engine powers all of the other variants as well with no detuning, and features variable valve timing, direct injection, and four valves per cylinder. The payload for crew cab models is 1,710 pounds with a 9,290-pound tow rating; the XD model bumps that to 2,360 pounds in the bed and an 11,050-pound tow rating using a gooseneck and 10,900 on the rear hitch. Tow and payload ratings for the King Cab models have not yet been released.

Power moves through a 9-speed automatic on all the trucks; no manual option was listed by Nissan. The XD variant does include a 60:1 “crawl” ratio in first gear that is not offered on the other trims.

The Titan Pro-4X Crew Cab 4×4 variant appears to be the most off-road ready, with a bit more ground clearance than the other non-XD models. It also features underbody armoring and slightly better approach and departure angles than other trims.

On the other end of the scale, the Platinum Reserve trims look to be the most comfortable, with heated and cooled seats, a Fender 12-speaker audio system, satin chrome accents, and other stylistic touches. Most of the Platinum features are included on XD models or can be optioned. Nissan is also offering a Bronze Edition package for the SV models that include bronze trim features, LED lighting, and bronze 20-inch wheels instead of the stock 18-inch rims.

Safety tech includes Nissan’s “Safety Shield 360” technology, including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist, and Rear Automatic Braking when in reverse. Forward collision warning and smart cruise are options.

2024 may mark the end of the line for the big V8 Titan, at least in its current iteration. CarConnection recently posted that Nissan officials said, “Production of the Nissan Titan is scheduled to end summer 2024 at our Canton plant in Mississippi.” Once TITAN production wraps up, the plant will begin building two “all-new, all-electric vehicles.” No details about the new vehicles were provided. The switchover is not expected to result in any job losses at the Mississippi plant.

A production timetable for the 2024 Titan was not specified, outside of Nissan officials saying the company would stop making them this summer.
