What You Will Like

Nissan is positioning its Titan XD as just the right size between 1/2-ton light- and 3/4-ton heavy-duty pickup trucks. This versatility in size should suit the XD well. The Cummins diesel will, too, providing Titan owners with an excellent platform for hauling and towing up to 12,300 pounds when properly equipped. For buyers who want something just a bit smaller, Nissan has reintroduced the standard Titan in 1/2-ton size for 2017.

What's New For 2017

The biggest news for 2017 is the reintroduction of the standard Titan model below the Titan XD. The standard Titan is just a little smaller, considered a true 1/2-ton pickup rather than the slightly larger XD. The standard Titan should be a hit for worksites where its more utilitarian nature and lower base price will endear itself to all manner of buyers.

Loading Comparison...


The Nissan Titan XD splits the difference between a light-duty and a heavy-duty pickup. Titan XD is smoother than the heavy-duty Ford F-250, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 (and Sierra 2500), or Ram 2500, but rides rougher than the light-duty F-150, Silverado 1500 or Ram 1500.

Built on a heavy-duty frame, Titan XD is rated to tow up to 12,000 pounds and we found it can comfortably handle 9,000-pound trailers.

Titan XD offers a choice of Cummins 5.0-liter turbodiesel or 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine. The diesel is rated at 555 foot-pounds of torque at 1600 rpm, giving it strong trailer-pulling power.

Titan XD looks like the light-duty Titan, but shares little in terms of hardware.

Inside, the cab is comfortable, with supportive seats.

The navigation screen is small, but the rearview camera is useful when backing up or attaching a trailer. Surround-view cameras help in tight places, along with cross-traffic alerts when backing up, sensors front and rear to aid parking.

Underway, Titan XD feels tall, but crisp, taut, more agile and precise than the other heavy-duty pickups. The suspension is relatively firm and controlled, and the steering is direct.

Titan beds are equipped a tie-down system that makes dealing with different types of cargoes easier. Storage boxes that lock are available. The tailgate is damped so it doesn’t slam down.

Titan is set up for towing a gooseneck trailer. Installing the ball and chain anchors takes about as much time as it took you to read this paragraph. That’s a nice feature, considering it can be difficult to get advice from car dealers or trailer dealers or anyone else about towing setups.

Titan XD comes with an integrated trailer-brake controller that makes stopping more accurate than an aftermarket setup.

It’s worth noting that the Titan XD is more American than a Japanese steak house in Tennessee. That is to say, it has a Nissan badge on it, but there’s very little here that’s Japanese. Designed in California, the Titan XD was engineered in Michigan and tested in Arizona. The truck is built in Mississippi. The 5.6-liter Endurance V8s are built in Tennessee, while the Cummins diesels are built in Indiana.


2017 Titan XD Crew Cab diesels come in SV ($45,250), Pro-4X ($52,230), SL ($53,510), and Platinum Reserve ($58,880). The Crew Cab lineup is similar with the gas engine, though there is also a base Titan XD Crew Cab S ($36,290) in addition to SL ($48,460) and the other trim levels.

Single Cabs come in S ($31,090) and SV trim ($34,990) with gas or diesel.


Titan interiors are nicely designed, with, bucket seats that are supportive and comfortable. A front bench seat is available, which adds another passenger to the seating capacity, a good choice for single cabs. Each trim level gets upgraded upholstery, from cloth and vinyl to leather to fancy leather on the Platinum Reserve. The upper trim levels are quite nice with leather seat trim that appears durable in addition to being coordinated and very attractive.

Climbing into the Titan XD requires a heave-ho, seemingly more so than with the other heavy-duty pickups; perhaps the XD’s biggest downside compared with the domestic HDs.

Crew Cabs offer full-size, front-hinged rear doors that open wide to reveal roomy, comfortable back seats. Storage is available underneath, and the rear seats fold down to a flat load floor, though that floor is too high for a big dog. Single cabs are work trucks, crew cabs offer luxurious passenger travel and everyday practicality.

Control for dash functions are large and easy to operate. The navigation screen is on the small side. The rearview camera works well and surround-view cameras make maneuvering in tight spaces easier. Cubby storage is aplenty, including big console storage.


Titan XD looks tidy and attractive, most closely resembling a Ford. Its styling makes it look smaller than it is. Park it next to another full-size pickup and it’s obvious it’s just as big. The Titan XD is an inch taller than a Ford F-150 and nearly three inches taller than a Ram 1500. Height for the XD is about the same for 2WD or 4WD. Width is similar to that of the other full-size pickups.

Titan XD crew cabs ride on a 151.6-inch wheelbase with 5.5-foot beds. Maximum payload capacity is 2000 pounds, and the Titan XD can handle a snowplow, though a manual transmission is not available.

Lights mounted low in the bed illuminate the contents, even when a bed cover is installed. A rail system in addition to traditional tie-downs make securing cargo easier. The tail gate is damped and opens smoothly and lowers easily instead of slamming down with a thud.

Driving Impressions

The Titan XD uses a much heavier frame than that of the Titan, they share nothing in the frame/chassis department.

In terms of handling and ride quality, Titan XD feels like it’s somewhere between Silverado 1500 and Silverado 2500. We are tempted to call it semi-heavy duty, but practically speaking, Titan XD will do everything most trucks in the F-250 class are called upon to do. If you need more towing capability than what the XD offers, you may want to consider the F-350 class.

We found the Titan XD quite capable while pulling a 10,000-pound gooseneck trailer. We had the same impression while hauling a heavy load.

The 5.0-liter diesel starts easily, even in cold weather, by inserting a key then pressing a start button. It rumbles pleasantly at idle. From outside, the traditional diesel clatter can barely be heard. This Cummins sounds confident, but not loud and clattery like the 5.9-liter inline-6 used in earlier Rams.

Underway, the diesel is smooth and delivers strong pulling power whenever the loud pedal is depressed. The two-stage turbo is tuned well to provide easy cruising over the flatlands or strong acceleration.

It comes with a heavy-duty Aisin 6-speed automatic controlled by a column shifter, with a rotary dial for two- or four-wheel drive.

Titan XD is set up for a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch. In literally a couple of minutes after pulling off the dealer lot, it’s possible to pop the plugs in the bed, plug in a ball. Then, back up to a gooseneck trailer using the cameras to locate, lower the trailer onto the ball, hook the chains through, and off you go to the races. But before you drive off, stand behind the trailer, press a couple of buttons on the key fob, and a test sequence will initiate allowing you to observe all the brake lights and turn signals are working, a fantastic feature.

Hooking up a bumper-pull trailer is made easier with a rearview camera that was redesigned for 2016 with this task in mind.

The trailer mirrors are effective, if on the small side, with a convex mirror below the flat mirror. The trailer mirrors can be extended manually, by standing outside the truck and yanking on them, not as convenient as the power-extendable mirrors on the F-250. Also, the mirrors tilt down when selecting reverse, a feature we seldom appreciate.


The Nissan Titan XD is an excellent choice as a tow vehicle for trailers weighing less than 9,000 pounds or as a heavy-duty hauler. It rides a bit more easily than the 2500-class domestic-brand pickups do, and it’s a bit more agile. However, the XD does not ride as smoothly as do the Titan and other 1500-class trucks.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
