Even though they essentially share the same name, don't confuse the Nissan Titan with its monstrous almost heavy-duty version, the Titan XD. The lighter, kinder gas-powered version is a much nicer truck in every way. The new Nissan also competes well with other light-duty 1500 competitors. Chief attributes include the Titan's energetic V8, reasonable ride and handling, low-effort tailgate and par-for-the-course fuel economy.

    We expect the 2022 Titan to be less reliable than other new cars. This prediction is based on Nissan's brand history and the previous models of the Titan.

    Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
