About the Nissan Titan XD

Vehicle Summary

The Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup truck that has been in continuous production since the 2003 model year. In 2016, Nissan released the Nissan Titan XD, a heavy-duty version of the traditional Titan with an available diesel engine. Since then, the XD has become a popular choice for those who like the space and style of the Titan but want a little more power under the hood. The Titan XD is also a viable contender if you're looking for a vehicle with lots of available configurations; the XD is offered in a single cab, king cab, and crew cab—as well as two different engine options and standard four-wheel drive on some trims.

Nissan Titan XD vs. Other Pickup Trucks

Let's see how the Nissan Titan XD compares to other pickup trucks in its class.

Nissan Titan XD vs. Toyota Tundra Platinum

The Toyota Tundra Platinum is a full-size pickup truck that comes standard with a 5.7L V8 engine (2018 model year). Unlike the Titan XD, there is no turbocharged diesel engine option available with the Tundra Platinum—though the 2018 Tundra Platinum does come standard with four-wheel drive. Fuel-economy-wise, the Nissan Titan XD wins out, as the 2018 Tundra Platinum with 5.7L V8 gets just an EPA-estimated 14 mpg combined.2

On the other hand, the Tundra Platinum does come with more standard features, including heated and ventilated front seats, a premium 12-speaker sound system, and a sunroof.

Nissan Titan XD vs. Ford F-150 Diesel

The Ford F-150 Diesel debuted in 2018, offering a turbo-diesel 3.0L V6 engine at 250 horsepower that doesn't quite stand up to the 2018 Titan XD's 5.0L V8 diesel at 390 horsepower. Where the Ford F-150 Diesel really shines, however, is in fuel economy. The 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel with 3.0L V6 engine gets an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined2—impressive for a full-size pickup truck. 

Nissan Titan XD vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT

The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT comes with a 4.3L V6 engine at 285 horsepower, which is a far cry from the 2018 Titan XD's turbocharged diesel. Its towing capacity is also considerably less at 9,200 pounds when properly equipped.1

However, the 2018 Silverado 1500 LT does boast some creature comforts that the 2018 Titan XD's base trim doesn't, including available wireless device charging, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an eight-inch touchscreen interface. From a fuel-economy standpoint, the 2018 Silverado 1500 LT gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined with its standard 4.3L V6 engine.2

Great Truck for towing our Airstream

We bought this truck to tow our new Airstream and so far it has been great. It is powerful, rides nice, and has features that only much more expensive big 3 trucks come with. We can tow the trailer, all of our stuff, and a 500lb motorcycle in the bed. We have put about 2000 miles on it and most of those are towing. We did have a couple of issues or it would have been 5 stars. The EVAC system had some deteriorated parts that needed to be replaced under warranty. I would have expected Car Max to have found this and fixed it before selling us the the truck. We also had to replace the break fluid due to it being dirty. Again, seems like Car Max should have done that for me. We only have had the truck since April.


  • Power: Great power for towing.
  • Ride and Handling: Rides nice when towing and under load
  • Seat Comfort: Very comfortable when traveling


  • Fuel Economy: Pretty bad gas mileage but it's expected for the power
  • Technology and Entertainment: The screen for the rear camera is too small

Nissan Titan XD Platinum Reserve

I have driven lots of trucks over the years, but have never owned one personally. I have driven every domestic brand of truck through work, and have test driven lots of imports. Based on my personal needs and experience with Nissan - I purchased a 2017 Titan XD Platinum Reserve model with the 5.0 Cummins Diesel engine. The truck is equipped very, very well and can be compared to the King Ranch editions of Ford. The seats are very comfortable and the truck drives and rides great. The XD I purchased already had a bed cover, truck work boxes (on each side of the bed for Titan XD models,) and a sprayed in bed liner. The sound system is actually pretty good for a "factory" installed Rockford Fosgate system. Heated and Ventilated seats are awesome for any type of weather condition. My gas mileage is averaging around 14.8 mpg combined (city and highway driving). The MPG would be a little higher if it was not for the REGEN process that Nissan has used to clean the Diesel Particulate Filter and D.E.F. system. My Titan is going through a REGEN process about every 250-300 miles (once per tank) and drastically impacts my MPG. Without a REGEN, I can get close to 18MPG. Thank you EPA, lol! I have elected not too, but you can find aftermarket systems that will "delete and tune" the Diesel engine and get rid of the factory installed EPA required equipment. I have towed and hauled with it - no problem. There is plenty of torque to pull the max tow rating of about 13,000lbs. Although the truck has far exceeded my expectations, the only change I wish Nissan would have made sooner is updating the GPS Head unit for the radio / GPS. The unit from the factory seems a bit dated and is somewhat small for how large the interior of the truck is. My 2017 also does not have any type of Apple or Android Car play - but you do have an auxiliary connection and blue tooth. It would have just made sense in 2017 to include those features in the Titan XD - as Nissan did for most of their line-up that year. All in all, it is a great, solid truck and is loaded with features. It definitely looks and feels more like a Extra Duty (XD) truck than other trucks in the half ton category. The argument is still out on whether the XD is a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton truck - but it has done everything I needed it to do. It keeps me comfortable and looks good while doing it. That is why I purchased it.


  • Styling: It is loaded to the max. Seats are very comfortable, two tone leather looks great, and it rides and feels like a much more expensive truck.


  • Technology and Entertainment: I feel Nissan could have added some more functionality into the Radio Unit in the Titan XD like they did in other Nissan models for the same year.

It’s a pretty truck but not very durable

I brought this car about three months ago. For a truck with less then 20k on the dash she is having a lot of issues. the first was a hood alignment issue that caused the hood to rattle so bad it looked like it was about to come off. next my suspension squeaks so bad every time I pull out of my driveway that it scares my neighbors. and finally my ac control is shorting out causes irregular temp control. I traded in a better car than I got. disappointed.


  • Interior Space: enough space for son a his equipment


  • Ride and Handling: turning radius is poor and suspension is definitely substandard
  • Fuel Economy: 10 miles to the gallon in city and 15-17 on highway at best.
