2017 Nissan Titan Trailering Capability
The 2017 Nissan Titan is a half-ton pickup designed to take on the toughest tasks that drivers have to offer. A durable design and capable drivetrain make it one of the most work-ready trucks in the industry. The new Nissan Titan only gets better with some impressive capability ratings. Here’s a quick look at just what the new model can do from us here at South County Nissan.
The Titan half-ton pickup boasts standard 5.6-liter V8 engine that delivers 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. That kind of performance brings a maximum towing capacity of 9,740 lbs. when properly equipped. The truck also offers a maximum payload capacity of 1,950 lbs. when properly equipped. Those are some impressive numbers, especially with a starting MSRP of just $29,580*.
While incredible capability and strength make towing heavy loads a breeze, it’s important to keep a few trailering safety tips in mind.
Driving at lower speeds puts less stress on the vehicle and trailer, making it easier to control. Trailer stability decreases dramatically at high speeds, so plan to leave a little earlier.
A trailer will make it harder to stop. As a result, it’s important to allow for more distance between the Nissan Titan and the vehicle ahead.
Lastly, consult the owner’s manual on towing before taking to the road. Use the manufacturer-recommended driving gear to increase safety.
