Overall Assessment

With its rugged body-on-frame platform and familiar interior design, the Nissan Titan provides straightforward capability in a segment that continues to become more tech-driven and complicated. Its 400-hp V8 engine is the most powerful standard engine in its class, delivering smooth power in any condition. The Titan lags rivals in sheer towing capacity. However, it still offers more trailering strength than average owners will ever need. The cabin is roomy and comfortable, though some materials show the Titan’s age. It comes with an impressive standard feature set, including Nissan’s suite of driver safety aids for extra peace of mind. It may not be the most modern truck on the market, but the Titan remains popular due to its powerful V8, excellent safety tech, and rugged durability.
