2019 Nissan Titan
Ratings & Reliability
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. The light-duty Titan comes with a smooth and punchy 5.6-liter V8 that is mated to a slick and responsive seven-speed automatic transmission, and the XD also offers a V8 Cummins diesel. The ride is more tolerable than the XD's, and handling is less clumsy. The roomy cabin has a variety of handy storage places, and the rear tailgate is damped, which is a nice touch. A suite of safety and driver assist systems are offered, including blind spot warning and moving-object detection. When properly equipped, the Titan can tow more than 9,000 pounds. The XD can tow 12,000 pounds, and its payload capacity is 2,000 pounds. It also has a built-in goose-neck trailer hitch for extra-heavy trailers.
