Current Model
The regular Titan is more pleasant to drive than the Titan XD (Extra Duty), which has a stiff ride and clumsy handling, similar to a heavy-duty pickup's. The light-duty Titan comes with a smooth and punchy 5.6-liter V8.
The roomy cabin has a variety of handy storage places, and the rear tailgate is damped, which is a nice touch. When properly equipped, the Titan can tow more than 9,000 pounds. It also has a built-in gooseneck trailer hitch for extra-heavy trailers. Recent updates included a nine-speed automatic, new interior and exterior styling, and an available 9-inch touch-screen infotainment system. Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB, BSW, and RCTW.

2017 Redesign Year
The redesigned 2017 Titan comes with a smooth and punchy gas 5.6-liter V8 that is mated to a slick and responsive seven-speed automatic transmission. A V6 engine is also available.
The ride is more tolerable than the heavy-duty XD's, and handling is less clumsy. The roomy cabin has a variety of handy storage places, and the rear tailgate is damped--a nice touch. A suite of safety and driver-assistance features is offered, including Nissan's surround-view camera system, blind-spot warning, and moving-object detection. When properly equipped, the Titan tows 9,730 pounds. All 2019 models get a new 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. There’s also a new rear-door alert system to remind drivers to check the back seat after the vehicle is parked. A substantially refreshed Titan debuted for 2020. Updates included a nine-speed automatic that replaced the previous seven-speed, a 10-hp horsepower boost to 400 hp, for the 5.6-liter V8; an available 9-inch touch-screen infotainment system (a 7-inch screen is standard); and a host of standard safety features such as automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, and lane departure warning.

2004-2015
2004 Redesign Year
Nissan's first full-sized pickup, the Titan has an impressively large cabin, is relatively agile and offers a fairly comfortable ride, along with a very smooth transmission. From its 2004 introduction, safety features included optional electronic stability control and head-protection airbags.
On the negative side, the crew cab's cargo bed is fairly small compared with the competition and payload capacity was a meager 1,105 pounds in our 2004 version. The payload was raised in later models. The muscular V8 provides strong acceleration, but the constant engine and exhaust noise can become tiresome. A 2008 freshening included styling updates and a long-bed version. The damped-action tailgate is a handy feature. Still, interior fit and finish are lackluster and neither a standard cab nor different engines are available.
