A combination of practicality, toughness, and luxury are rarely rolled into one vehicle. Yet the Titan of trucks does it so effortlessly. Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD are sleek, smart, and strong, ready for an enjoyable ride between jobsites or the hard work of hauling equipment. The Titan is equipped with enough storage for all your tools and enough technology to get you where you’re going as safely as possible.
Nissan’s Zero Gravity seating—available in the front and back seats of the Titan—gives real meaning to the saying “Take a load off.” Designed to maximize comfort and reduce fatigue, in Zero Gravity seats, your body will take on a natural posture, minimizing the amount of stress placed on your joints and bones. The Titan also features climate-controlled front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a remote engine start system, each ideal for chilly mornings or cold climates. Those sitting in the back of the crew cab won’t feel left out of the circle of luxury built in the front. With heated outboard rear seats, a 120-volt power outlet, and rear passenger vents, the feel of luxury surrounds the cab.

The Titan’s seven-inch control screen is easy to use and comes equipped with Nissan’s Around View Monitor to line up to a trailer. It also features the 360-degree bird’s-eye view to help you maneuver in the tightest of spots. The Trailer Light Check makes towing even easier with the ability to check all brake light connections with the Nissan Intelligent Key.
Nissan has a range of available Intelligent Mobility features that detect movement around your truck, whether you’re parked or mobile. Features like Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and the above mentioned Around View Monitor keep you aware of your surroundings, even if your mind wanders away from the road.
POWER OF A TITAN
A powerful 5.6-L Endurance V8 gas engine is found under the Titan and Titan XD. With 360 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque, this engine has a 4-valve-per-cylinder design, and Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL), reducing the amount of valve lift when the engine is running at low revs. This technology improves fuel efficiency, engine torque, and throttle response.
Available in the Titan XD, the 5.0-L Cummins Turbo Diesel is powerful, reliable, and efficient. Also with a 4-valve-per-cylinder design, this 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque engine has a two-stage turbo and ceramic glow plugs. If your load is hefty, gooseneck towing is available for the Titan XD. When not in use, the gooseneck is easily removable and conveniently stores in an available storage bag.
The Nissan Titan XD and Titan Single Cab models are the first-ever single cab offering in Titan history. The trucks are designed to provide an affordable and rugged entry-point in the commercial fleet/work truck market.
In 2016, Nissan relocated the shift lever back to the steering column, making room for a larger console. Both driver and passenger have easy access to the huge console in the 2018 Titan; add an available wireless smartphone charger to your console for a more luxurious, convenient feel. Speaking of convenience, no more leaning over to access your glove compartment from the driver’s seat. The Titan’s glove compartment lever is moved toward the center, making it easier to grab those napkins you’ve stashed.
If you’re going from worksite to date night, rear-seat storage keeps your tools locked up and out of site. The cargo organizer even folds out to create a flat floor for easy loading. Equip your Titan with Titan boxes to store even more. Titan boxes are lockable, removable, and fit in the bed of your truck.
The Titan comes in three available bed lengths for your specific needs. Haul more equipment with the Titan/Titan XD 8-ft single cab or the Titan/Titan XD 6.5-ft king cab. Haul more of your crew with the Titan 5.5-ft crew cab, or haul your crew and equipment with the Titan XD 6.5-ft crew cab.
The Titan is a work truck at its core. Literally. The reinforced, fully boxed, full-length ladder frame gives the Titan incredible lateral rigidity for even the toughest of jobs. With a strong core and Nissan’s innovations in technology, no wonder the Titan is America’s fastest growing full size truck brand.
