According to Pick up news

Nissan used the 2016 Chicago Auto Show to reveal the newest variant of its controversial Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck, releasing a few new specifications. Unlike the bigger, longer and heavier Titan XD (the two do not share a single component), the crew-cab light-duty Titan will have a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length, and offer less payload and towing capacity.
The half-ton Titan (we view the Titan XD as a heavy-duty half-ton) will be powered by a choice of two gas engines — the new Endurance 5.6-liter V-8 making 390 horsepower and 401 pounds-feet of torque, and a new V-6, both of which will be mated to a new seven-speed speed automatic transmission (also found in the new 2017 Nissan Armada and several Infiniti products).
The lighter-duty Titan will have the same five trim levels we've seen for the XD model: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve. It will eventually offer three cabs (regular, King and crew), have three bed lengths (depending on the cab) and come in either 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain configurations.
The wheelbase of the light-duty Titan crew cab will be 139.8 inches, which makes it shorter by several inches than most of its competitors (the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the Ford F-150, the GMC Sierra 1500 and the Toyota Tundra). The only exception is the Ram 1500, which has a wheelbase less than an inch longer. The Titan XD has a wheelbase that's 11.8 inches longer at 151.6 inches, with an overall length (bumper to bumper) that's more than 14 inches longer at 242.8 inches, meaning the smaller Titan has an overall length of 228.1 inches.
This newest Titan variant will have many of the same interior and exterior design cues as the XD (in fact, the crew cab is the same for both), but with a slightly softer hood and grille look. We'll get more information as Nissan gets closer to producing this new version, which we're hearing is still more than six to 10 months away.
