The 2022 Nissan Titan is nearly here, and people are wondering what it will include. Can we expect a redesign? What kind of engine will be in the 2022 Nissan Titan? And perhaps most importantly in the current car climate, how much will the 2022 Nissan Titan cost? Here’s what is known about the 2022 Titan so far.
Is the 2022 Nissan Titan being redesigned?
In short, no, the 2022 Nissan Titan is not being redesigned. That’s because the Nissan Titan was redesigned in 2020. Then the Titan got major upgrades, according to Kelley Blue Book. Some of these included a whole redo of the Titan’s interior, adding a 9-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay, as well as Android Auto. In addition, the Nissan Titan’s 2020 redesign meant the pickup truck got a whole host of vital safety features, like automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning.
You can get two variants of the 2022 Nissan Titan, including the King Cab and the Crew Cab. The 2020 redesign meant that the cab of the Titan, whether it be the King Cab or Crew Cab, is nicer and quieter. The 2022 Titan will come standard with rear-wheel drive, but you can pay a little extra to get four-wheel drive instead. If you go with the Titan King Cab S trim, you’ll get a receiver hitch and spray-on bedliner.
The Titan Convenience package is still available, including navigation to the 2022 Nissan Titan. It already had a 9-inch touchscreen, remote start, and a power adjustable driver’s seat. However, Nissan is doing away with the Titan’s SL trim level.
What kind of engine is in the 2022 Titan?
The 2022 Nissan Titan is one of the pickup trucks keeping its V8 engine. As more car manufacturers are beginning to steer away from the V8s and toward the V6, this makes the 2022 Titan more attractive to those looking for the V8.
The Titan’s engine will be a 5.6-liter capable of up to 400-hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. All this means that the 2022 Titan will get 16 city miles and 21 highway miles on the basic version of the truck.
The 2022 Titan will be able to carry 1,680 pounds and tow 9,370 pounds. If you’re someone planning on using your pickup for frequent carrying or towing, you may find these numbers disappointing.
How much is a 2022 Titan?
The 2022 Nissan Titan’s official price hasn’t been released yet, but it’s likely to come in at around $37,000 for the King Cab. The Crew Cab will cost you an extra $3,000.
Of course if you really want luxury in your Titan, you may want to opt for the Platinum Crew Cab, but that’ll bump up the price by $20,000, for a total of $60,000. With any of these Nissan Titans, you’ll need to remember to add the destination fee to your final price.
The 2022 Nissan Titan may not be that much different from its predecessor, but all signs point to it being a comfortable, updated pickup truck. And, if you really have your heart set on a V8 engine, the 2022 Titan may represent one of your last chances to get one. The 2022 Nissan Titan should be released sometime in the fall of 2021, so keep your eyes open for when you can buy the new Titan.
