You’ve met the big Nissan Titan XD, now meet its smaller crew cab brother. This is the 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab. It’s got a big gasoline V8 for your truckin’ pleasure!
The very best cars don’t come from bean counters, they come from true car people. And Hiroshi Tamura’s car guy credentials are unassailable.
