Does Nissan’s diesel-powered, Titan XD ‘tweener truck appeal to you? That’ll be $41,485. For that, you get the base S, two-wheel-drive trim of the kinda-heavy-duty pickup, complete with a 5.0-liter CumminsV8 that cranks out 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque.
Pricing across the Titan lineup is as follows, and all numbers listed here (for both the Titan and its competitors below) include a $1,195 destination charge.
- S Crew Cab 4×2 – $41,485
- S Crew Cab 4×4 – $44,485
- SV Crew Cab 4×2 – $45,255
- SV Crew Cab 4×4 – $48,205
- Pro-4X Crew Cab 4×4 – $52,165
- SL Crew Cab 4×2 – $53,225
- SL Crew Cab 4×4 – $56,225
- Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×2 – $58,665
- Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4×4 – $61,715
So, how’s that stack up against other similarly equipped, diesel-powered HD pickups? A Ford F-250 XL Super Crew with a 6.7-liter diesel V8 starts at $45,655 and tops out at $66,715 for a Platinum trim. On the Chevy front, a Silverado 2500 4×2 WT with the diesel V8 starts at $46,330, and the top-model High Country is $63,900. Finally, the Ram 2500 Tradesman costs $45,740 for the diesel/4×2 version, and commands $65,690 for the Limited.
Of course, the Detroit Three offer even heavier-duty trucks, and we still have no idea how Nissan will price its standard-grade Titan with the naturally aspirated 5.6-liter V8. Expect the latter to fall more closely in line with F-150/Silverado/Ram 1500pricing, and we’ll know more when those trucks are rolled out next year.
