Nissan has announced the pricing for their much anticipated half-ton Titan and, now the big question is how will their volume seller stack up to the Toyota Tundra – a truck many feel is going to lose market share to Nissan. Here is what we know.
Pricing for the 2017 Nissan Titan is as follows:
2017 Titan half-ton pricing:
|TITAN S Crew Cab 4×2||$34,780 USD|
|TITAN SV Crew Cab 4×2||$37,670 USD|
|TITAN SL Crew Cab 4×2||$46,380 USD|
|TITAN Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×2||$52,310 USD|
|TITAN S Crew Cab 4×4||$37,810 USD|
|TITAN SV Crew Cab 4×4||$40,700 USD|
|TITAN PRO-4X Crew Cab 4×4||$45,020 USD|
|TITAN SL Crew Cab 4×4||$49,460 USD|

Titan XD gas trucks will come with the same 5.6L V8 and 7-speed automatic as the non-XD models. Destination and handling fee is also $1,195.

How Does the 2017 Toyota Tundra Compare?
Just today, we told you about the 2017 Toyota Tundra pricing here. In a nutshell, prices start at $30,020 and runs to $50,030 for the top trims – Platinum and 1794.
Breaking it down against the Titan is a bit tough since not everything matches up. For example, Toyota offers their base SR package in extended and regular cabs, but not in Crew Max configurations.
Looking at the bread-and-butter configuration for Toyota, the CrewMax, large V8 SR5 2wd, is an easier comparison with the Titan SV Crew Cab 2wd truck. Toyota comes in at $35,420 while the Titan comes in at $37,670.
At the higher end, Toyota’s most expensive truck starts at $50,030 while Nissan’s top model comes in at $55,400.
Titan XD vs. Non-XD
Finally, one last comment on Nissan’s pricing is how close the XD and non-XD prices are.
On the low end, the prices are about $2k different while on the high end, it is about $1,500 difference. I wonder why customers won’t just spend the extra $25 a month in payment for the extra capacity. Customers over buy capacity anyway and this seems like a no-brainer.
Heck, if I was buying a Titan, I’d buy the XD all day over the half-ton. It just makes more sense to me to have the sturdier frame and more capability.
New Long-Term Warranty
One final note, Nissan announced a new warranty on the Titan which is sure to start some conversations and could lead a few more customers to their dealers. The warranty is bumper-t0-bumper coverage of 5-years/100,000 miles or whichever comes first. This trounces Toyota’s warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles.
Interestingly, GMC just last year, reduced their powertrain warranty to 60k miles to be “more in line with competitors.” Nissan doesn’t seem to share the same sentiment.
What do you think? Are the prices what you expect? How about the long-term warranty? Let me have it!

Honestly the truck is over priced. The warranty is impressive. I could see adding an extra $1,000 to the cost…but over $4,000? It is a gamble, and time will tell if it pans out. Hopefully when the Gen 2.5(you know it as the 3)Tundra is replaced by the next generation Tundra, Toyota will not follow in Nissan’s footsteps. House hold income is down… so this type of logic makes no “cents”. Maybe the logic is with big three prices, come big three customers. We’ll see.
Titan has better warranty but it comes at a premium. You could take the price difference and buy add-on coverage for the Tundra. Tundra is less likely to need it anyways.
Fortunately for Nissan, this distinction will likely get lost in the hyperbole.
Or, which is likely more the case, Nissan has confidence in their product. This has greater merit than the questionable Consumer Reports and JD Powers ratings–based on my first hand experience, they don’t mean squat. If Nissan added it to try and stand out without having the the QDR to back it up, then Nissan would be relying heavily on its dealer network to fix things. As we all know a good dealer is harder to find than a unicorn.
All three of my titans have been flawless. It is good to see nissan stand behind their product.
Thanks for the share! Cool looking truck!
Always great to see competition step up in the import truck market. We are biased to Toyota since that is our dealership, but Nissan has a winner with the Titan and Titan XD.
