Already known for its fuel-efficient sedans and SUVs, Nissan is keeping fuel efficiency a priority across all segments as gas prices remain high. This week, Edmunds.com named the 2014 Nissan Frontier and the 2014 Nissan Titan among its “Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks for 2014.” The Frontier tied for second with 21 mpg combined highway/city fuel economy, while the Titan finished ninth with 15 mpg combined highway/city fuel economy.
Edmunds.com, which provides several “Top 10” lists each year, featured nine “Most Fuel Efficient Trucks” this year due to a smaller number of available models meeting the necessary criteria. This year’s list included fuel-efficient gas-only models, and each vehicle’s ranking was determined by its Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) combined fuel economy rating.
“People have associated pickup trucks with low gas mileage for many years, but we’re defeating that stereotype,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “We’ve worked hard to produce pickups that not only provide excellent towing capability and ample cargo space, but also impressive fuel efficiency. This recognition by Edmunds validates our efforts to make fuel efficiency a priority across all platforms, from sedans to pickups.”
The powerful, full-size 2014 Nissan Titan offers a unique combination of style, innovation and excellent value – including a range of body, bed and drivetrain configurations designed to fit a variety of buyer needs from a durable business tool to a versatile family adventurer. Titan is offered in King Cab and Crew Cab body styles with a choice of 4×4 and 4×2 drive configurations, along with two wheelbases and three bed lengths.
Every Titan comes equipped with a powerful 5.6-liter DOHC Endurance V8 rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds (when properly equipped).
Titan remains one of the most innovative designs on the market today, with features such as Wide-Open rear doors, factory-applied spray-on bedliner, Utili-trackÔ Bed Channel System and a lockable bedside storage compartment. The 2014 Nissan Titan is available in four well-equipped models: S, SV, PRO-4X and SL.
