A QUICK LOOK AT THE 2017 NISSAN TITAN PRO-4X!






The Nissan Titan Pro-4X is essentially this: a Nissan Titan, but with the added off-road and utility cred. The Pro-X4 gives buyers a truck with some more attitude. 

Its main competitors are the Ford F-150 FX4, Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 and the Ram Rebel. The car sits at a base price of $46,215 and an As-Tested price of $52,305 at the moment. 

The drivetrain for this vehicle is a 5.6-liter V8, four-wheel-drive and 7-speed automatic transmission! The output is 390 hp and 394 lb-ft torque. 

Here are the highlights you should know about the Nissan Titan Pro-4X... The car has off-road prepared features like Bilstein performance shocks, an electronic locking rear differential and skid plates for the radiator and transfer case. This helps show off the rugged-looking Pro-4X! At its core is the Nissan's very capable redesigned Titan full-size pickup.

A writer from Autoweek had this to say about the 2017 Titan Pro-4X:

"At its first-drive event last fall, Nissan executives conceded the Titan -- good as it is -- is unlikely to peel off many of the die-hard domestic truck buyers. They're among the most loyal bunch in the market. So why expend the capital to bring a full-size pickup into what's admittedly a limited market? Because the truck market in America is so big that even if Nissan only sold Titans to brand fans, they'd move enough to make the investment worthwhile.

 

It appears to have paid off: Nissan moved nearly 4000 Titans in July 2017, up 230 percent over the same month in 2016. There's a lot to like about the truck too: Our Titan Pro-4X off-road special not only looks the full-size desert-stomper role, but also delivers interior amenities worthy of a highway road-tripper. Heated/cooled leather seating, an easy-to-use navigation system and surprisingly quiet ride made a 700-mile round trip in the Titan perfectly comfortable, and it returned an 18.8-mpg average with a few hundred pounds in the bed.

 

On the plus side, Nissan provides a fold-up option for the rear seats that helps configure the rear for people, cargo or a combination of the two; there's a hard load floor that folds down to create a flat surface for easy loading too. A flip-out rear step, damped tailgate and super-bright bed lighting also make for easy hauling. On the downside, there was quite a bit of driveline shudder on upshifts, especially into the higher gears; also, the automatic climate control system seemed to deliver a similar blast of arctic air whether it was set at 67 or 75 degrees, requiring manual fan control to keep from freezing occupants.

 

From a power, convenience and towing perspective, the Titan doesn't break any new ground in the full-size pickup game, but it doesn't have to: Nissan owners or brand devotees in need of a credible off-road pickup truck will find everything they need to keep them in the family, and that's really this truck's game."
