Pricing for 2022 Nissan Titan Confirmed, Many Bargains To Be Had
Recently, automotive YouTuber Doug DeMuro called the 2022 Nissan Frontier a "new truck that feels old." We wonder very much if he would feel the same way about the Frontier's big brother, The 2022 Titan, especially after hearing some of the newly unveiled pricing information.

Pricing for 2022 Nissan Titan Confirmed, Many Bargains To Be Had

That's right, folks. You might not have to break the bank to get your hands on a 2022 Titan, at least if dealerships play by the rules in the age of the global microchip shortage.

The base MSRP is $38,010 for the TITAN King Cab 4x2 S model. Now in its third model year, the current generation of Titan competes head to head with some of the highest quality and most powerful pickup trucks in the world in its market segment.

We're talking the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, and Dodge Ram 1500. If an automaker can produce a pickup with a fraction of the appeal American ones can, they have a genuine chance of competing for market share at the very least. Thankfully, a 400 horsepower 5.6-liter Nissan V8 will make sure the new Titan can hold its head high against the best on the planet at building pickup trucks. 400-plus lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque won't hurt one bit either.

From the base, Titan S King Cab 4-2, the options and trim package options are plentiful and range drastically in price. Topping the range is the 2022 Titan Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4x4 at $63,040 before taxes and fees. In between, there's a Titan pickup at just about every price point for just about every level of work intensity.

The 2022 Titan XD is a full 15 inches (38.1 cm) longer than the standard model and will demand a higher premium than standard wheelbase options in the Titan lineup. It'll net you some of the best bed space configurations in a brand-new truck in the USA today. For our money, the best option is the $41,270 TITAN S King Cab 4x4, the cheapest four-wheel-drive option available for the Titan at the moment.

As per official Nissan sources, every 2022 Titan comes standard with the Nissan Safety Shield 360 system. A suite of advanced driver assistance systems dedicated to avoiding, preventing, and minimizing the damage to life and limb in the event of impacts with other vehicles. As one of the largest passenger vehicles in the Nissan lineup, there's every reason to suspect the 2022 Titan is one of the safest new trucks around.

Being a Nissan product, it's worth mentioning that the new Titan doesn't come with a CVT transmission, as have some Pathfinder models of the recent past. The Titan has more in common with the NV heavy-duty van and the Armada SUV than the Pathfinder, which ditched CVTs with its latest refresh as well.

They're nine-speed traditional automatic units from Jatco in this case. At least in the gasoline variants, Cummins diesel-equipped Titan models sport a six-speed Aisin automatic. A very nice upgrade if you're used to CVT boxes blowing up like grenades at inopportune times.

As for the more expensive options in the lineup, only time will tell if the level of refinement and features is enough to justify the $50,000 or even $60,000 and up prices. If the optional Fender Premium Audio System with 12 speakers in the Crew Cab variant of the Titan is truly banging, that would be many good marks for Nissan. A five-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty good for 100,000 miles also helps the whole deal go down a whole lot easier.
