The 2018 Nissan Titan comes in Single, King (two half-sized suicide doors), and Crew Cab (four full doors) body configurations. With the latter example, you’ll find a 5.6-foot bed.
There are five trim levels to choose from: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. Unlike some manufacturers, the base model doesn't sacrifice performance. It features the same powerful 5.6-liter V8 engine and seven-speed automatic transmission as the other models ,along with robust payload and towing capabilities.
Our recommendation is to take the Titan SV in the Crew Cab body with four-wheel drive. It supplies the ideal combination of passenger space, content, and cost. The SV adds trailer sway control, chrome exterior trim, an drive-assist display in the instrument cluster, and satellite radio. Its cloth seats are fine and the available leather means committing to multiple options that would add $4,000 to your price. No thanks. We do like the Convenience Package as it adds numerous comfort, safety, and towing features, and even with it equipped we think you’ll drive away from your Nissan dealership in a 2018 SV 4x4 for just over $45,000.
