Powered by a standard V8 engine, the 2018 Titan has no lack of power, with strong acceleration and good driving manners that include a comfortable ride on most surfaces. The available trims include S, SL, SV, Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve, providing a good range of price and features across the board. Three bed sizes are available: an 8-foot bed for single cab trucks, a 6-foot 6-inch bed for King Cab, and a 5-foot 7-inch bed for Crew Cab trucks.
But while the Titan does many things well, its rivals generally do them better. There is only one engine and axle option, and specs for towing (about 9,000 pounds) and hauling (about 1,650 pounds) trail the class. Various factors may impact towing & payload capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories. The 2018 Titan also lacks technology features its rivals have, like advanced driver assistive systems such as automatic emergency braking, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity. The Titan also lacks the engine, cab, bed and feature flexibility of trucks like the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado.

Comfort: The Nissan Titan is one of the nicer driving trucks out there, and the ride comfort in particular stands out. It maintains its composure even on rougher pavement, and the comfortable front seats enhance that comfort. The quick-acting automatic climate control helps to keep you cool, or warm.
Interior: The column-mounted shifter, oversized buttons and door handles, and overall look and feel of the Titan’s interior are designed to appeal to truck fans. There’s also tons of room for the driver and front passenger, and the commanding seating position provides a great view of the road. Tall drivers may wish for a seat that adjusts a bit lower, and the rear seating isn’t quite as roomy as the front. Look for models with blind-spot warning, since the thick rear pillars hurt rearward visibility.
Acceleration: Although it’d be nice if Nissan offered more engine variety, there’s no denying the standard V8 engine provides plenty of power. The V8 sounds good and responds without hesitation to the gas pedal. But it feels quicker than it is, with instrumented testing showing that it’s only on par with its rivals.
Technology: Even for a 2018 model, the Titan trails competitors when it comes to high-tech features. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ aren’t available, and neither are advanced driver assist systems such as automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning. Both are major shortcomings compared to the Titan’s more fully featured competitors.
