2016 Nissan Titan XD priced from $40,290

Nissan has announced the 2016 Titan XD will be priced from $40,290.

Set to go on sale tomorrow, the model isn't exactly cheap but it is important to note the truck will be available exclusively in a Crew Cab configuration at launch.  Additional body styles will be offered in the future but in the meantime customers will only have to select between five different trim levels.

Entry-level variants are sparsely equipped but the range-topping Platinum Reserve variant starts at $57,470 and features a host of upscale amenities.  Highlights include heated / cooled front seats, open-pore wood trim, and a NissanConnect infotainment system with GPS navigation. 

Power is provided by a 5.0-liter Cummins V8 turbodiesel engine that produces 310 horsepower (231 kilowatts) and 555 foot-pounds (751 newton meters) of torque.  It is connected exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional four-wheel drive system.

Next spring, the truck will be available with a 5.6-liter V8 petrol engine that produces 390 hp (290 kW) and 401 lb-ft (543 Nm) of torque. This particular engine will be connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission which features Adaptive Shift Control and Downshift Rev Matching.

Nissan also confirmed plans for a third engine but details will be released at a later date.
