Nissan released pricing across the entire Titan range Friday.

Following up on yesterday’s post addressing rumors Nissan had discontinued the Titan in the U.S. (as the company had in Canada), we have some updated information for 2022 models. The automaker’s Mississippi-built full-size truck indeed lives on, more or less unchanged from its redesign back in 2020.

Across the board, each 2022 Nissan Titan truck still comes with a 400 horsepower 5.6-liter V8, putting out 413 lb-ft of torque to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The company’s “Safety Shield 360” suite also comes standard with rear automatic braking, as does forward collision warning and the choice of a King (extended) Cab, Crew Cab and Heav(ier) Duty Titan XD, as before.

As you’d expect, the 2022 Nissan Titan lineup remains exactly the same as before, with up to four available trims depending on the cab configuration: S, SV, Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve. Nissan dropped the higher-end SL trim for 2021, while the King Cab only comes in S and SV grades.

2022 Nissan Titan price talk

Starting with the King Cab models, the S 4×2 base truck starts at $39,705 including Nissan’s $1,695 destination charge. That’s a solid $1,060 hike over the 2021 model for no substantial changes. On top of that, this year’s base pice comes in $1,290 more expensive than a V8-equipped Ford F-150 XL SuperCab, $2,315 more than a 5.3-liter Chevy Silverado WT Double Cab and $415 more than a Hemi-equipped Ram 1500 Tradesman Quad Cab.

The SV King Cab, for its part, comes in at $45,035 for the rear-wheel-drive model. Based off 2021’s base price for the 4×2 model, the jump here is even more profound, at $2,550.

Getting the 4×4 option costs $3,260 extra across the entire Titan range, including the Crew Cab models. Speaking of Crew Cab, here’s how the pricing breaks down (with changes from 2021 prices). Fortunately, there’s not as much movement through the price walk for Crew Cabs as there are for the King Cab versions:

Trim2022 PriceChange from 2021
S 4×2 Crew Cab$41,475+$100
SV 4×2 Crew Cab$44,955+$130
Platinum Reserve 4×2 Crew Cab$58,395+$260
S 4×4 Crew Cab$44,635+$130
SV 4×4 Crew Cab$48,115+$160
Pro-4X 4×4 Crew Cab$52,595+$210
Platinum Reserve 4×4 Crew Cab$61,675+$300

Among full-size pickups, we’ve liked the Titan for what it offers, but it’s struggled for sales against the titanic (yeah, I know) Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado and even the Toyota Tundra. That last one particularly comes into play this year, as Toyota finally updated their full-size offering for the new year. While sales picked up 3.7% in 2021, Nissan dealers managed to shift just 26,439 trucks (to Ford’s 726,004 F-Series sales, largely driven by F-150, and Toyota’s 81,959 Tundra sales).

What about the Titan XD?

If you’re looking for the longer, heavier and more capable (2,450 pounds of payload, up to 11,000 pounds of towing capacity) Titan XD, you can still get it for 2022 as well. As with the standard Titan, the 5.6-liter Endurance V8 continues to be the sole available powertrain. Unlike the standard truck, though, you can only get the XD in four-wheel-drive configuration.

Here’s the price walk for 2022 Nissan Titan XD models:

Trim2022 PriceChange from 2021
XD S Crew Cab 4×4$47,275+$100
XD SV Crew Cab 4×4$51,055+$190
XD Pro-4X Crew Cab 4×4$56,865+$250
XD Platinum Reserve 4×4$64,735+$330

2022 Nissan Titan models are hitting dealers right now. The automaker has not updated its configurator yet, but we expect that to happen shortly, so you’ll be able to get the most updated information on the Build & Price site.
