According to an article from jdpower.com, the 2017 Nissan Titan gets 5 year / 100,000 mile bumper to bumper coverage. Nissan calls it America’s Best Truck Warranty.
Nissan knows this tough truck is built to last with a heavy duty frame and chassis, plus an updated version of the proven Endurance V-8 engine that shares only it’s 5.6L displacement.
Every 2017 Nissan Titan half-ton uses a durable chassis design, starting with the fully boxed, full-length ladder frame. The front suspension is a double-wishbone design, while a rigid rear axle suspension utilizes hefty leaf springs and leaf bushings, along with twin-tube shock absorbers. Hefty stabilizer bars are utilized front and rear. PRO-4X models feature Bilstein mono-tube off-road shocks. Also available is an Electronic Locking Rear Differential. Hydraulic cab-mounts help isolate occupants from the chassis.
While the 2017 Titan half-ton’s new 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine shares its displacement with the previous-generation V8, that is where the similarities end. The new engine features 390 horsepower @ 5,800 rpm (up 73 hp from the previous 317 hp) and 394 lb-ft of torque (up from the previous 385).
The new engine utilizes Nissan’s advanced VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) technology, which combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side to provide high performance and crisp response. Throttle response is enhanced by directly controlling the intake valve, rather than using the traditional method of controlling intake with a throttle valve, and valve timing and opening with non-variable camshafts.
The Endurance V8 also features Direct Injection Gas technology, which provides better wide-open throttle performance and improved fuel economy and emissions performance (versus a non-direct-injection system) by reducing engine knock, improving combustion stability and offering precise injection control.
Helping handle the engine’s power and torque is a heavy-duty and smooth shifting 7-speed automatic transmission tuned exclusively for TITAN.
