The 2018 Nissan Titan may be one of the most clever pickups I’ve ever driven. Between the numerous bins inside to the integrated tie-downs in the bed, the truck actually makes good use of its enormous size.
Maybe you forgot about it since it seems to fly under the radar, but Nissan makes a half-ton pickup: the Titan. I’m driving one with the 5.6-liter gasoline-fueled V8. There’s all kinds of clever bins and tie-downs that make me wonder why I don’t see more Titans on the road. What would you like to know about it?
The freshly redesigned 2017 Nissan Titan and its heavier-duty sister the Titan XD are supposed to revive the automaker’s relevance in the truck market. Now we know where these trucks will be positioned, and contrary to some speculation, it’s not the “absolutely cheapest” slot.

The Nissan Titan and Armada are not off-road vehicles. Not really. The Titan’s too damn big, and the Armada has 20-inch wheels and a freaking chrome vent on its front fender—clearly designed for stuntin’, as today’s teens say. But if you’re curious what the two can actually do off-road, check out these videos.
At this point you know the Nissan Titan and its heavier-duty brother the Titan XD are refreshed and repowered for 2016. But this is the first time we’ve seen them in any configuration besides a full four-door crew cab.
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD’s Cummins diesel engine weighs about 900 pounds. That makes this one hell of a trustfall for the ICON’s new suspension system here. We’re waiting to hear how it looked after landing, but I’m just stoked somebody had the balls to get hangtime in this monster!
You’ve met the big Nissan Titan XD, now meet its smaller crew cab brother. This is the 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab. It’s got a big gasoline V8 for your truckin’ pleasure!
By now you may be familiar with the 2016 Nissan Titan XD, a “hardcore light-duty” truck in between the half-ton and three-quarter-ton classifications. We knew a regular-sized half-ton version was coming, and here it is. I guess it’s “hardcore regular,” then?
The 2016 Nissan Titan and Titan XD’s standard engine will be a revised version of the company’s 5.6 Endurance V8 paired with a new seven-speed automatic. High compression, more power and variable timing is supposed to do a lot for the truck’s capability and economy figures. Finally.
It’s finally time: Nissan will let us drive their all-new Cummins-diesel powered Titan pickup truck tomorrow. Get your questions in today so I know what to poke, prod and ask about for you!
There are different yardsticks in the truck world. Instead of top speed, or acceleration, or just the right steering wheel thickness, you have payload capacity, durability, and, of course, towing capacity. And the 2016 Nissan Titan should be right up there, with a claimed towing capacity of 12,314 pounds.
This stripped and slammed 2016 Nissan Titan XD was just unveiled at the SEMA aftermarket show and will be making a run for two land speed records. Now, what you should be asking yourself is; “why not?”
The Titan is Nissan’s attempt to grab a piece of the full-size truck sales pie. What do you need to know before you buy a Nissan Titan? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you in our Buyer’s Guide.
Here's how the Cummins-diesel powered 2016 Nissan Titan XD was bumped, shaken, and slammed all over America to simulate about 350,000 miles of regular use, work, and off-road driving.
The 2016 Nissan Titan is an American-built truck with an American-built turbodiesel Cummins 5.0-liter V8, giving consumers a chance to own a V8 diesel in a light-duty truck. It'll tow 12,000 pounds and do it while saving 20% of fuel relative to other V8s they said.
I can't overemphasize how exciting it is to witness the birth of a new half-ton truck challenger to entrenched powerhouses Ford, Chevy, and Ram. Just (five years after) the Nissan Titan melts into "oh, you're still here?" status, they come back swinging for the fences.
There's a whole lot of dick-measuring happening right now on how half-ton trucks stack up on power, fuel economy, payload, and maximum towing capacity. Here's your guide to decoding what every US automaker's truck in this class is really putting down.
"Now I know why they call it The Last Frontier," said Kevin McMahon, surveying the Alaskan wilderness from a helicopter. He and David Guzman picked up a Nissan Titan, heavily modified with parts picked out by Nissan's Facebook fans, and headed into the bush for an incredible adventure.
We've been hearing the 2015 Nissan Titan was stepping up its game with a 5.0 turbocharged Cummins diesel, an engine that might also show up in the 2016 Toyota Tundra. We were almost ready to forget that 'til today, when Nissan started titillating us all over again with "#CumminsSoon" on Twitter.
