When it comes to trucks, the Ford and Chevrolet’s offerings dominate most people’s thinking. But there are a few other options out there, from the intelligently designed Honda Ridgeline to the Nissan Titan. The Titan has just come in for some attention, with the lineup growing to include a single-cab model aimed at rough and ready commercial use.

There will be two engines offered on the new single cab. The first is a 5.0-litre Cummins Diesel, pumping out 310 hp (231 kW) of power and a chunky 752 Nm (555 lb.ft) of torque. Alternatively, buyers are able to opt for a 5.6-litre petrol motor with 390 hp (291 kW) and 534 Nm (394 lb.ft) of torque, put to the road through a seven-speed automatic gearbox. Interestingly, the diesel is hooked up to a six-speed auto.

All Titan single cab trucks come with an 8.0-ft bed, 2.5-ft longer than the bed you get on the dual-cab model launched in Detroit last year. If you’re really planning on making the most of all that space, it’s worth paying for the XD version.

Why? In regular trim, the petrol-engined Titan has a maximum payload of 1,930 lb (875 kg), with a maximum towing capacity of 9,730 lb (4413 kg). In comparison, the petrol-powered XD can haul 980 lb (445 kg) more in its tray, and has a maximum towing capacity of 11,590 lb (5257 kg).

The new Titan will be available in two and four-wheel drive when it arrives later this year.
