Our Opinion - 2023 Nissan Titan Review The problem with pickup trucks is that they are all different, even though they all have big bumpers, intimidating grilles, tall tires, and beds big enough to fit a stack of sheet rock. The full-size Nissan Titan has the best warranty compared to rivals like the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado. It also has the only eight-cylinder engine of any brand that is not domestic. Every Titan has a V-8 engine with 400 hp and an automatic transmission with nine speeds. The Titan can have rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, a longer extended cab with a shorter 5.6-foot bed, or a bigger four-door crew cab. The bigger Titan XD, looked at on its own, is made for heavy-duty work. Even though the Titan’s cabin is comfortable, it doesn’t have as many modern features as newer cars like the Ford F-150. Other full-sized vehicles, like the Raptor and TRX, have high-performance versions with terrifyingly powerful engines and off-road suspensions that can move a long way. The Titan, on the other hand, has a different defense. Its slightly improved Pro-4X model can only go as far as its skid plates, Bilstein shocks, and badging will let it, which isn’t very far. We’re hoping for a new Titan before the next significant extinction because the current model is starting to feel old compared to its more modern competitors. What's New? For 2023, Nissan only makes minor changes to Titan’s equipment. The Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve trim levels can connect wirelessly to Apple CarPlay. The Midnight Edition package for crew-cab SV cars has also been brought back by Nissan. This set’s outside and inside are black, and the 20-inch wheels are black. Pros And Cons Pros: Transmission with nine speeds Good safety standards in the workplace Cabin for taking it easy V-8 thrashing Cons: A limited ability to carry things It takes work to drive. Interior supplies at a minimal cost V-8 fuel economy Engine, Transmission, and Performance The Titan only has one engine and transmission combination, which is different from its light-duty competitors. When paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, its legendary 5.6-liter V-8 engine makes 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The Titan gives up being tough off-road and can pull a lot in favor of being easy and fun to drive. Even though it can reach 60 mph as quickly as similar V-8 cars and stops well, its steering and handling are not as smooth. Even though the Titan and Titan XD, each reviewed separately, share cabs and other parts, they each have their chassis and suspension. Even though the off-road shocks on the Titan Pro-4X are better for rough roads than the original ones and replace them, they seem stiffer than competitors with the same settings. When we last looked at the 2020 Titan, its ride quality couldn’t match that of the Ram 1500. Safety The Titan comes with several standard systems that help the driver. There is also a 360-degree camera, a sophisticated motion-detection system, and other valuable features. Among the essential safety features are the following: Standards for emergency brakes that work on their own There are options like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. It is possible to make use of something called adaptive cruise control. Internal and External Cargo Capacity The interior of the Titan is quiet, and the Zero Gravity front seats that come with it are ridiculously comfortable. Only the Platinum Reserve trim gets materials of high quality. Unfortunately, the Titan’s interior lacks creativity. It has too much plastic and the least legroom in the back of any competitor. When it comes to keeping freight under control, the Titan is among the very finest in the industry. Every model includes a spring-assisted tailgate for ease of use, and advanced options such as a customized bed-channel system and concealed in-bed cargo compartments are also available. Even though it has a lot of storage space inside, it’s hard to find a place for smaller items, and its cargo compartments have the least storage space compared to competitors. The bed length of the Titan’s extended cab is 6.6 feet, and the bed length of the crew cab is 5.6 feet. Fuel Economy and Actual MPG On the highway, the Titan is expected to get up to 21 mpg, but the four-wheel-drive version only gets 16 mpg in town, while the rear-drive version gets 21 mpg. The Titan Pro-4X is thought to use 15 miles per gallon inside the city and 20 miles outside of it. We have yet to put a Titan through our highway fuel-economy test at 75 mph, but we will as soon as we can. Infotainment and Connectivity Every model has an 8.0-inch touchscreen display that works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also get a larger 9.0-inch display. Both interfaces use the most up-to-date Nissan Connect software, which makes the user experience more modern. The Titan also has a mobile hotspot, a powerful Fender audio system, wireless smartphone charging, and multiple power connectors. Towing and Payload Capacity The Titan’s towing and payload ratings are near the bottom of the field. Still, most owners think it’s enough that it can pull 9660 pounds, which is more than enough for every model to remove at least 9240 pounds. Price and How to Choose Because the Titan isn’t the best in its class, it works best as a work truck. Included are the basic S model with rear-wheel drive and the standard extended cab for this type of truck. Of course, people who want all-wheel drive’s extra features can pay for it. This version has fewer optional upgrades but still has standard features like an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connections. It also has automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and other features.
