The 2017 Nissan Titan King Cab has finally been revealed. The latest and last variant of the Japanese car manufacturer's updated and redesigned full-size pickup truck was unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.
The 2017 Nissan Titan King Cab. The King Cab will be made available in the standard half-ton models and the heavier duty XD versions. The updated and redesigned pickup truck King Cab features rear-hinged access panels at the second row and also provides seating for up to six passengers with bench seats fore and aft.
The King Cab is technically what the Double Cab is to Chevy and Toyota or the SuperCab at Ford. It is what the Quad Cab is to Ram although it should be noted that Ram also has a Mega Cab option on its line of heavy-duty trucks.
One particular selling point of the King Cab is the option for rear-seat deletion. These features allow one to save a few pounds by having the rear seat, rear heater duct, and the rear assist grips mounted on the roof removed and having them replaced with a flat rear load floor and rear wall finisher with tie-down hooks. The rear-seat delete option also allows for a great increase in in-cab storage space.
Vice President for Nissan's North American truck operations Fred Diaz said that "The launch of the new King Cab body is the last step in a journey that began in December 2015 with the debut of the breakthrough Titan XD, which continues to carve out a unique white space between competitors' heavy-duty and half-ton trucks." He further added that the addition of the half-ton Titan King Cab now has them covering every possible segment in the market of commercial and personal full-size trucks.
The 2017 Nissan Titan King Cab will be made available for sale in the Spring of 2017. There are no pricing details out yet for the King Cab but analysts are expecting it to be between US$29,580 and US$34,780.
