Automotive Editor -

How many country songs are written about the Nissan Titan? Not too many. But that doesn't mean the Nissan isn't as much a workhorse as the American haulers. Indeed, the heavy-duty Titan XD boasts a maximum 12,310 pound towing capacity and a top payload rating of over 2,000 pounds. A Japanese full-size truck may still sound like an oxymoron to some, but there's no denying that the Titan XD has the stats to back up its assault on the traditional American trucks.

What's New for 2018

Rhinestone cowboys will appreciate the new Midnight Edition package, which outfits the Titan with a body-color grille and bumpers, black 20-inch wheels, and black badging, interior trim, door handles and mirrors. Otherwise, the Titan is unchanged.

Choosing Your Nissan Titan XD

Nissan offers two Titans. The base is roughly analogous to light-duty trucks like the Ford F-150 or Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and is listed separately. The Titan XD, listed here, challenges the heavy-duty F-Series Super Duty and Silverado 2500HD.

Nissan offers an array of choices regarding the combination of cab and bed. Buyers can choose from three cabs – Standard, King and Crew – as well as from either an eight-foot or 6.5-foot bed. The Crew Cab, with it's four full-size doors, is paired exclusively with the 6.5-foot bed. The King Cab, which uses smaller but wide-swinging rear-hinged doors, is available with either bed, as is the Standard Cab.

Of the five trim levels, only the Crew Cab is available across the Titan XD line. The Single Cab is relegated to just the S or SV SV, while the King Cab can be had in S, SV or Pro-4X.

Under the hood, power is all of the eight-cylinder variety, with one burning gas and the other drinking diesel. The former displaces 5.6-liters, and with help from technology like variable valve timing and direct injection, puts out 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.

Unlike the 5.6, which is built in-house by Nissan, the diesel is a 5.0-liter affair made by Cummins. It uses a two-stage turbo system to help avoid low-end turbo lag, and also employs technologies to reduce "diesel chatter" and improve cold starting - two notorious traits that often plague diesels of any make or model. It uses a six speed automatic versus the 5.6-liter's seven speed unit, and power output is 310 horsepower and a stout 555 lb-ft of torque.

With the diesel, max payload and towing capacity is 2,420 and 12,640 pounds, respectively. The gas engine can haul up to a 2,910 lb payload and trailer up to 11,590 lbs.


The base S starts at $33,335 (including destination) and for that buyers get a Single Cab gas-powered work truck. The S includes a five-inch infotainment display, power windows, power locks, A/C, cloth and vinyl front bench, a four-speaker sound system, cruise control, keyless entry, an alarm, and 17-inch steel wheels.

Options are limited to GAWR Package and its heavy-duty front springs ($150) and the $845 S Utility Package, which bundles an overhead storage console, a spray-in bedliner and a class IV tow hitch.


The $37,235 SV is the next-cheapest Titan and is the place where most shoppers should start. Additional standard features include trailer sway control, chrome exterior trim, gas tank skid plate, and power heated mirrors. Inside, the interior offers SiriusXM radio, a cloth bench seat, and Siri Eyes Free.

The $2,695 SV Convenience Package brings a slightly higher level of luxury with a leather-wrapped wheel, parking sensors, automatic headlights, auto-dimming rearview mirror, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, dual-zone HVAC, navigation and 20-inch wheels. The $1,145 SV Utility Package includes four tie-down cleats, tailgate area illumination, bed-installed 110V outlet, spray-on bedliner and under-rail LED bed lighting.

An SV Chrome Package adds $1,245 to the price tag and swaps in chrome 20-inch wheels, a chrome grille, and a chrome exhaust tip. A $1,250 Midnight Edition Package does what the Chrome Package does, but with black trim instead of chrome.


The $47,275 Pro-4X is the middle child of the Titan family. Mechanically, it boasts four-wheel-drive with hill descent control and an electronically locking rear differential. Outside, buyers get 20-inch wheels, LED automatic headlights, fog lamps, a spray-in bedliner and a lower radiator skid plate. Interior upgrades include front cloth bucket seats with embroidered vinyl, eight-way power driver's seat with power lumbar adjustment, chrome interior trim, seven-inch touchscreen, navigation, power-sliding rear cab window, rear AC vents, and rain-sensing wipers.

As with the SV, the Pro-4X also offers Utility and Convenience packages as options, albeit with an expanded list of included features (and higher prices). The $1,445 Utility Package includes a power rear window with defogger, a 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system, an electronic locking tailgate and a bed step. The $3,545 Convenience Package offers a heated steering wheel with power tilt/telescope functionality, NissanConnect mobile apps, remote engine start, driver's side auto-dimming outside mirror, heated front seats and leather seats.


The Crew-Cab-only SL costs $50,705. It includes the contents of the Pro-4X's Convenience Package, along with an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, a 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system, four-way power passenger seat, two-way driver memory, and chrome mirrors with puddle lights.

Also available is the $1,295 Texas Titan Edition, which is essentially chrome trim, 20-inch wheels, and special badging. For those who aren't as gun-ho for the Lone Star state, the SL also gets the Chrome and Midnight Edition packages.

Platinum Reserve

The $56,075 Platinum Reserve is the top Titan. On top of what comes with the lower-tier trucks, it includes luxuries like split-towing mirrors with automatic tilt-down when reversing, leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, trailer light check, and a surround-view camera.

A $2,195 rear-seat entertainment system is available that includes dual headrest DVD entertainment, with wireless headphones and remote. A $750 Utility Package offers the Titan Box system, electronic locking tailgate and rear bed step.

CarsDirect Tip

No matter the exact model, the diesel is a hefty upcharge - $5,000-$7,000 depending on trim. Only spurge for it if planning on doing regular towing; otherwise, the gas engine will more than suffice.
