Americans love their trucks. In fact, during the first 9 months of 2016, one out of every eight vehicles sold in the US were large pickup trucks. The best-selling truck in American is the Ford F-150, last year the F-150 out sold the best-selling car, the Toyota Camry 2-1. Every manufacturer sees that trucks are a huge market and they all want to get a piece of the pie, and Nissan is no different, that’s why they released the specialty 2017 Nissan Titan Pro-4X 4×4 Crew Cab.
While it is true that Nissan has sold truck for 50 years and has made them in Mississippi since 2003, the full since Titan has been merely an afterthought until the second-generation model made its debut in the beginning of 2015. The Titan heavy-duty XD was the first on showroom floors, followed by a half-ton crew-cab version powered by a 5.6-liter gas V-8. Nissan has now been boosting their Titan lineup with single and extended varieties, and they are equipping them with 5.5, 6.5, and 8.0 foot beds. And Nissan plans to release a V-6 option here in the near future. It is clear that Nissan is here to play in the game.
Nissan is so serious about their truck lineup that they are offering the Titan in seven different trim levels to answer the demand of all of their consumers. The different levels are Titan-Single Cab; S and SV, and Titan-Crew Cab; S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. The Titan Pro-4X 4×4 Crew Cab is Nissan’s middle-child, but this one isn’t forgotten. As the name implies, the Pro-4X, has part-time four-wheel drive, which comes standard along with all-terrain tires, 18-by-8-inch aluminum wheels, Bilstein dampers, a locking rear differential, hill-descent control, and a steel skid plate protecting the radiator and the oil sump.
Nissan’s DOHC V-8 is a thing of mechanical beauty with four-valve combustion chambers, variable intake-valve timing and lift, and direct fuel injection. Power and torque peaks are both relatively high, but there was ample low-end muscle to yank a 6000-pound trailer smartly up to highway-merging speed. The Pro-4X cabin is a large and luxurious enclave for five occupants that offers supportive seats, easy access, and surprising versatility, especially in back. The split rear cushions can be raised to convert passenger perches into a level load space. Lockable cubbies beneath the molded-plastic cargo platforms are another handy touch. In front, a 7.0-inch touchscreen serves as the infotainment command center. It’s equipped with voice-recognition navigation, hands-free text messaging, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth, and a bird’s-eye-view backup camera.
