2018 Nissan Titan - An Introduction

Available in Single Cab, King Cab and Crew Cab configurations respectively, the 2018 Nissan Titan is highly adaptable to the job and the lifestyle you hope to lead. This new Nissan model comes in S, SV, Pro-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve trim levels depending upon the cab option you select, with Midnight Edition variants that add a different aesthetic to your experience.

This new Nissan light-duty truck boasts a single 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine that produces best-in-class standard horsepower and torque (390 horsepower, 394 pound-feet). Molded with a high-strength steel frame and supported by extensive disc brakes, reinforced double-wishbone front suspension and an upgraded rear differential, this rugged Nissan model is built to endure despite tremendous pressure on the job. Activate Tow-Haul mode for greater refinement with this experience while towing up to 9,740 pounds or hauling 1,950 pounds in the Single Cab configuration. Available Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a suite of useful features, solidifies your reassurances with these transports. Features include blind-spot  monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, along with front and rear sonar systems.  


Your cabin experience while seated inside is centered on convenience, cargo flexibility and technology incorporation. Popular features of note, available depending upon trim, include:

  • NissanConnect Mobile Apps
  • Advanced Drive-Assist Display
  • 12-Speaker Rockford Fosgate Audio System
  • Remote Engine Start System
  • Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
  • Virtual Work Bench
  • Under-Seat Storage Trays

2018 Nissan Titan XD - The Commercial Sibling

What distinguishes the 2018 Nissan Titan XD from the light-duty Nissan truck described above, and how is this heavy-duty option utilized most effectively? We first begin with the design distinctions of this commercial work vehicle, utilizing a reinforced fully boxed, full-length ladder frame into the very durable but slightly less extensive fully-boxed frame of the Nissan Titan. Commercial components are plentiful, including heavy-duty 14-inch brakes to support the larger payloads and towing capacity you can support. Speaking of these capabilities, you can expect to tow up to 12,310 pounds and haul up to 2,080 pounds of payload (Crew Cab) at the new Titan XD's top potential.

Available in Single, King and Crew Cab configurations, the 2018 Nissan Titan XD adds stiffness and increases torque for business-oriented results and rugged fulfillment of goals. While this new Nissan model does offer the Endurance V8 engine of the regular Titan, a Cummins V8 Turbo Diesel engine produces 555 pound-feet to support these larger production numbers. The new Nissan Titan XD also includes an available integrated gooseneck hitch for stabilization on the job. Commercially equipped and built to withstand whatever you throw its way, we recommend this heavy-duty Nissan truck for its dynamic qualities and the real potential it offers.
