nissan prices 2017 titan crew cab v8 from 35 975 2017 armada from 45 395

Nissan’s second-generation Titan arrives in crew cab, V8 form with a U.S. base price of $35,975, including $1,195 for destination and handling.

A terribly long run for Nissan’s first full-size pickup truck effort resulted in only 471,242 U.S. sales between 2002 and 2015, roughly the total number of Ford F-Series pickups sold every seven months. Nissan has forged a unique strategy for the Titan’s relaunch, with the heavier-duty — though not quite Heavy Duty — Titan XD already on the market with a 310-horsepower Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel powerplant.

Now the regular-duty 2017 Nissan Titan is arriving in concert with an upgraded full-size pickup truck warranty that matches Nissan’s commercial van coverage: bumper-to-bumper, five years/100,000 miles.

With regular-duty Titans largely unavailable of late, U.S. sales of the midsize Nissan Frontier skyrocketed in the early part of 2016. “Skyrocket” is not a term ever used to describe Titan volume. U.S. sales peaked at 86,945 units in 2005, the truck’s second full year on sale. Nissan averaged fewer than 17,000 annual sales since 2010.

2017 Titan crew cabs will be sold in S, SV, SL, Platinum Reserve, and 4×4-only PRO-4X guise, all with a seven-speed automatic transmission and a 5.6-liter V8 producing 390 horsepower. The SV is a $2,890 leap beyond the base S. The Titan SL is nearly $9,000 more expensive than the SV. Four-wheel drive adds $3,030 to the price of the S and SV, $3,080 to the price of the SL, and $3,090 to the price of the Platinum Reserve.

Pricing for the top-of-the-line 2017 Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×4 starts at $56,595. The least costly four-wheel drive Titan Crew Cab is priced from $39,005. (The least expensive F-150 SuperCrew 3.5-liter EcoBoost 4×4 variant of the best-selling pickup truck line in America, Ford’s F-Series, currently includes $1,500 of incentives that pull the price down to $38,570.)

In most trims, pricing for the 2017 Titan XD with the 5.6-liter gas engine requires a $1,510 jump above the equivalent regular-duty Titan.

Nissan’s other full-size, body-on-frame vehicle now operates on the separate platform of the global Nissan Patrol and the three-year-old Infiniti QX80. With $995 in destination and handling fees, 2017 Nissan Armada SV pricing begins at $45,395. Four-wheel drive adds $2,900.

At the top of the heap, the 2017 Nissan Armada Platinum AWD starts at $60,985. Prices for the Infiniti QX80 begin at $64,245.

Sales of the outgoing Armada peaked at nearly 40,000 units in 2005, its second full year of availability. 37,083 Armadas have been sold in America over the last three years. Segment-wide volume across the full-size, volume brand SUV spectrum is up 9 percent this year, but Nissan and Toyota combine to earn less than 8 percent market share.

Nissan says the 2017 Nissan Armada is on sale now. 2017 Titans are beginning to arrive in Nissan’s U.S. showrooms.

    I have owned two Titans (consecutively, for almost 250,000 miles combined), and now own two Ram 1500 trucks (simultaneously). Titan reliability was pretty good, except for the cracking exhaust manifolds; a $2,500 job (covered under extended warranty luckily for me) on each of the trucks, with the second Titan (@ 187,000 miles when I traded it) due for its third set of manifolds... Nissan never changed that 'feature' in the Titan's long run (12+ years), they just kept installing new manifolds that would eventually crack again. The fuel economy of the Ram trucks (with MDS on the Hemi) is much better than the Titan. In mixed driving, I get around 20mpg in the Rams. Reliability of the Rams has been good so far: I've got a combined 90,000 miles on the trucks now, and no issues to speak of. The ride in the Rams is also much smoother than the Old Titan. And last, but for me at 6'4" certainly not least, the driver's position is an ergonomic minefield in the Titan; lots of leg and headroom, but if you sit upright your eyes are close to being in line with the upper edge of the windshield. New Titan looks like it retained that design feature, so I'll stick with the slightly better position in the Ram. My main gripe with the Rams is no telescoping steering wheel, on any trim :-( So, if I had to choose today between Ram and Titan, I'd go with the Ram.

      @gtem The ticking is a feature of the Hemi engines; some do it, some don't. According to Ram, and also other owners of high-mileage vehicles, it won't hurt the engine. After 180,000 combined Hemi miles (we also own a 90,000 mile 6MT Challenger), I'd have to agree with them.

    @LIKE TTAC.COM ON FACEBOOK I completely agree. I thought it was an F150 first glance at the picture. This truck has been morphing that direction and this takes it almost there.

  • Mr Imperial Seeing the adjusted-for-inflation amount always makes me sick, I can't believe how much it has gone up in my 40-some-odd trips around the sun. Still fondly remember seeing these and Ford Explorers everywhere.

  • George Hughes What ever happened to the American can-do attitude. I know what, it was coopted by the fossil fuel industry in their effort to protect their racket.
  • 28-Cars-Later "But Assemblyman Phil Ting, the San Franciscan Democrat who wrote the electric school bus legislation, says this is all about the health and wellbeing of Golden State residents. In addition to the normal air pollution stemming from exhaust gasses, he believes children are being exposed to additional carcinogens by just being on a diesel bus."Phil is into real estate, he doesn't know jack sh!t about science or medicine and if media were real it would politely remind him his opinions are not qualified... if it were real. Another question if media were real is why is a very experienced real estate advisor and former tax assessor writing legislation on school busses? If you read the rest of his bio after 2014, his expertise seems to be applied but he gets into more and more things he's not qualified to speak to or legislate on - this isn't to say he isn't capable of doing more but just two years ago Communism™ kept reminding me Dr. Fauxi knew more about medicine than I did and I should die or something. So Uncle Phil just gets a pass with his unqualified opinions?Ting began his career as a real estate  financial adviser at  Arthur Andersen and  CBRE. He also previously served as the executive director of the  Asian Law Caucus, as the president of the Bay Area Assessors Association, and on the board of  Equality California.
