Nissan will be offering a new V6 engine in the Single Cab models at a later date. Two engine choices will be available when the truck launches this fall; The Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque; and the 5.6-liter Endurance V8, rated at 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.
Three cab configurations, three beds
Nissan will ultimately offer the Titan Single Cab with three cabs, three bed lengths, three engines, 4x4 and 4x2 drive and S, SV, SL, PRO-4X and Platinum Reserve trim levels. Nissan says the new single cab will be offered in both Titan XD and Titan configurations. Both versions will share the same cab dimensions and 8.0-foot pickup beds, but will feature completely separate fully boxed ladder frame chassis.
Cummins Diesel models will be mated to an Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission. V8 gasoline engine-equipped versions will be coupled to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Two grade levels will be initially be available with both Titan XD and Titan Single Cabs.
