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 goose-neck trailer hitch for extra-heavy trailers.
Recent updates include 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 rear cross traffic warning.
