Nissan Titan Wins 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year
Surprising Performance, Value Vaults Titan to Top




Quote :
The totals have been tallied, the votes counted, and ultimately, there can be only one. For 2017, it’s the 2017 Nissan Titan. As last year’s competition in which the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali nabbed the trophy, the Titan was expected to be a solid contender, but ended up being somewhat of a dark horse candidate. The most highly anticipated model of the competition was undoubtedly the all-new Ford F-150 Raptor. There’s no doubt the Raptor was a blast to drive on and off-road, and was packed with technology and drool-worthy hardware. However, at the end of the day, the Titan emerged as a more well-rounded truck that made more sense as a daily driver and as a pickup truck.

The strong power and throaty sound of the 390-hp 5.6L Endurance V-8 won unanimous praise from the judges, giving the Titan ample power delivered through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The V-8 engine note was there when you wanted it, and quiet when you were cruising, never intruding on the comfortable, well-equipped cabin. And well-equipped is not an understatement. The top-line Platinum Reserve model had essentially every option you could get, minus a sunroof and the rear seat entertainment package. Among the highlights were Nissan’s Around View Monitor 360 virtual overhead camera display, heated and cooled front seats featuring Nissan’s exclusive “zero gravity” design, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a memory function for the steering wheel, driver’s seat and outside mirrors, 7-inch touchscreen navigation and entertainment display, LED low-beam headlights, Titan Box in-bed storage compartments, and integrated trailer brake controller. All of this equipment for $56,595 including destination, well less than many comparably equipped peers, not to mention a class-leading 5-year, 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

The Titan was neither the fastest of the test, nor the most capable, ceding that territory to its stablemate Titan XD model in terms of payload, and the dedicated HD models for towing. What propelled Nissan’s new fullsize to the top was its combination of capability, comfort, value, and all-around practicality as a daily driver. In our eyes it represented the best overall truck experience for the money. For those reasons, we’re proud to name the Nissan Titan as Truck Trend’s 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year.

Nissan didn't do enough crash test and research. I thought everyone in the pickup biz knew about the offset crash challenge and Ford's relatively easy solution (F150) to the IIHS offset test. That's gotta scare consumers aware.

Looks like most of the 2017 crew cabs did poor.

Class leading 5/100 warranty.
Too bad GM can't advertise that. Evil or Very Mad
