Sales make it clear – Nissan is not a major player in the full-size segment. While Ford is selling nearly a million units of its F-150 truck, only 50k truckers have chosen Titan. Well, the changes for the 2020 season could improve chances of the truck. However, something spectacular can save this lineup from a total disaster. That is why we are eagerly waiting for the 2021 Nissan Titan.
There are a lot of possibilities. Warrior off-road warrior is already old concept. But, back in its time, it was a futuristic model than can compete with Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and Ford Raptor. Also, we can consider the XD version as the part of the lineup with its huge turbodiesel engine. Finally, there are still speculations about the 2021 Nissan Titan Nismo, although this is probably impossible task for the Japanese company.
2021 Nissan Titan Specs, Diesel
The base version of the Titan truck is not underperforming compared to the rivals. However, with a single petrol option, it lacks options. A 5.6-liter unit, also called Endurance, will be available both for 2021 Nissan Titan and Titan XD models. It produces 390 hp and adds 395 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic gearbox transfers power to 2- or 4-wheel drive. Maximum towing capacity of the petrol unit is 9,700 pounds.
The company discontinued a 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel powertrain. But, don’t worry. It is only a retuning and the engine will reappear on the 2021 Titan. The company will add this unit to the standard model, not only the larger XD version. With 310 hp and 555 lb-ft, it still can compete with fresh diesel units for Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500.
The 2021 Nissan Titan is not offering smaller engines, but there are plenty of other options letting you build a perfect pickup. First, you will have to pick a cab configuration. Single Cab, King Cab, and Crew Cab are sizes of the cabin. Also, you choose 4×2 or 4×4 drive. The next you should decide is a trim level. S and SV are available for the entry-level pickup. King Cab adds Pro-4X off-road trim level. The most options you will have with Crew Cab. Besides the abovementioned tiers, there are also SL and Platinum Reserve. Midnight Package with unique features is available for SV and SL trims.
2021 Nissan Titan Nismo
For a long time you can hear rumors about the special edition of the truck. Well, the 2021 Nissan Titan Nismo is a long shot and probably impossible to happen. Why? There is only handful of models with this badge and Titan would be the largest one. No other is even close to its size. So, it will be the best to stop dreaming about the performance-tuned pickup.
Still, Nissan could introduce the Warrior version of the XD truck.
