The new 2022 Nissan Titan Diesel will reportedly debut later in the year. Besides some minor exterior refreshments, the upcoming pickup will come with a revised interior. However, like the previous generation, it should host the same comfortability and durability.
The new Nissan Titan will be offered with two engine options. The base powertrain is a 5.6-liter V8 engine that has a maximum power output of 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. The second engine is a 5.0-liter turbodiesel engine that was used in the Titan XD truck. This engine produces 330 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Nissan Titan Diesel Exterior
Regarding exterior styling, the forthcoming 2022 Nissan Titan Diesel will not be different from the base model. During last year’s mid-cycle revamp, Nissan made some changes, creating more distinct looks for each Titan variant. For example, the Titan SL is the variant that will differ from other models with heavy chrome present on the grille, mirrors, door handles, sidestep, exhaust tip, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Platinum Reserve is the second popular trim, featuring a 2-tone color scheme with a satin chrome grille and tailgate finisher. In general, this model looks more sporty and is complemented by illuminated chrome running boards and painted 20-inch machined alloy wheels.
The top trim and the rugged off-road-oriented Pro-4X model is the best alternative if you seek more uniqueness. This variant features a blacked-out grille with red Nissan lettering, red tow hooks, a black tailgate with red Nissan lettering, and black door handles. On top of that, the Pro-4X also rolls on attractive dark-painted, 18-inch alloy wheels wearing all-terrain off-road tires. For 2022, the manufacturer adds more colors making the pallet list larger than ever. In addition, exterior color choices include Cardinal Red Metallic, Super Black, Baja Storm, Red Alert, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Pearl White Tri-Coat, Glacier White, and Deep Blue Pearl.
Interior Design and Trim Equipment
Like the previous generation, the new 2022 Nissan Titan Diesel is available as a King Cab with a pair of rear-hinged back doors and as a Crew Cab with four conventional doors. Both variants provide enough room inside for five passengers (or six when you choose the base S model with a front bench seat).
In terms of technology, the entry-level trim S will include an 8-inch display, Bluetooth, USB port, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, air conditioning, 4-way manually adjustable front seats, and a 6-speaker audio system. However, choosing models like the Pro-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve, buyers will get an impressive 9-inch touchscreen with WXGA resolution.
The Titan Pro-4X can also be ordered with power-adjustable side mirrors, embroidered seats, power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated rear seats, power-adjustable steering column, panoramic moonroof, 12-speaker Fender audio system, and an indispensable 360-degree camera system. As the Titan flagship, the Platinum Reserve version adds some extras. This model features a panoramic moonroof, rear bed step, and a Utility package that includes a lockable toolbox.
The new 2022 Nissan Titan Diesel is the pickup truck that will come standardly with the latest Safety Shield 360 array of driver aids. So, expect automatic rear braking, automatic on/off headlights, trailer sway control, and much more.
2022 Nissan Titan Diesel Engine Specs
The upcoming 2022 Nissan Titan will be available with two potent engines. The standard is a 5.6-liter V8 engine with a maximum power capacity of 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission, pushing power to the four-wheel-drive drivetrain.
The second engine is a 5.0-liter turbodiesel unit that delivers 330 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, both machines are powerful, allowing Nissan Titan to tow excellent towing capacity. According to Nissan, the new Titan King Cab 4×2 is able to tow around 9,370 pounds.
Release Date and Price
The 2022 Nissan Titan will receive some exterior and interior upgrades. However, don’t expect something significant, considering that last year’s model is still fresh. For the 2022 year model, we can expect some refreshments on the front fascia and many upgrades inside. Reportedly, Nissan will introduce more standard equipment across all trim levels. The redesigned variant will probably arrive in late 2021 or early 2022.
We expect the 2022 Nissan Titan to have a starting (MSRP) of approximately $37,000. A Crew Cab model costs $3,000 more, as does a 4-wheel drive system. At the top of the trim lineup is the Titan Platinum Crew Cab 4×4 that starts at about $60,000. Compared to the models like the F-150, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, and the Toyota Tundra, the Titan can’t match its resale values.
