The Titan aims for that—and falls short. Available in full-size Titan configuration, or nearly heavy-duty Titan XD trim, the Titan is available with three cabs, two powertrains, in five trims, with numerous options along the way. Rivals go even further. Its gas and diesel engines keep pace with the percenters, but stop short of superlatives that others provide. The Nissan wins one contest: its warranty is unmatched by rivals.
The Nissan Titan Is An Unexpectedly Smart Stuff-Hauler
The Nissan Titan is a valiant attempt to topple domestic rivals that have sat atop the Mount Olympus of full-size-pickup sales for decades. Although it lacks the recognition and respect of Ford, General Motors, and Ram alternatives, the Nissan uses the same big-truck formula. Its standard hp V-8 and seven-speed automatic are effective partners, but the Titan's ride is rougher than the rest. A dedicated off-road model and customizable cargo box also align with the competition, but the Titan's towing capacity is the lowest in the light-duty class. The Titan tries hard, but it lacks the breadth of powertrain choices, originality, and innovations necessary to destabilize the status quo. The Titan receives an upgraded infotainment system with desirable options. Every model now has a 7.
The Nissan Titan gets a new Midnight Edition model that comes with dark inserts on the grille, dark headlights, black fog light surrounds, black exterior badges, black side mirror covers, inch black-finished alloy wheels, and black Midnight Edition badges. The Nissan Titan is a full-size truck that slots above the midsize Frontier and is available in three cab styles and in rear- or four-wheel drive. Five trims are available including a luxury-oriented Platinum Reserve and off-road-oriented Pro-4X.
Between the numerous bins inside to the integrated tie-downs in the bed, the truck actually makes good use of its enormous size. There were plans to do a new version based heavily on the Dodge Ram back in , but those fell through. I had to haul away a large antique desk, and I also wanted to pick up some of the extra tools around the house that I could definitely use in putting my one true garbage automotive son—the —back together. This 4x4 Crew Cab SL Midnight Edition has an attractive appearance package which makes most of the usual chrome trim bits black or body color, plus four doors and a back seat that is most definitely usable by full-size adults. Low-hanging fruit!
