Driving Impression

The Titan XD uses a much heavier frame and chassis bits than the Titan. It might be seen as semi-heavy duty, but for all practical purposes, it will do everything a three-quarter-ton truck in the F-250 class can do. We found the Titan XD quite capable hauling a heavy load, or pulling a 10,000-pound gooseneck trailer. If you need more towing capability than what the XD can handle, you’ll need a truck in the F-350 class.

Both engines are strong and extremely capable, although the 5.6-liter gas V8 is a bit aged. It makes 390 hp and can tow 11,270 pounds. It’s pretty quiet, although the 7-speed automatic transmission can be slow to kick down when acceleration is needed.

The 5.0-liter diesel starts easily, even in cold weather, by inserting the 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, 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. 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.

The XD uses a double-wishbone suspension in front, and leaf suspension in the rear, the bits beefed-up over the regular Titan’s. The rear uses twin-tube shocks and an American Axle differential with an available electronic locker. The ride is smooth, but not creamy as rivals like the Ram, with optional air suspension. It feels somewhere between Chevy Silverado 1500 and Silverado 2500.

It steers well, while basically handling like the 19-foot-long, 5,000-pound behemoth it is.

Titan XD is set up for a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch; it’s very easy to pop the plugs in the bed, and plug in a ball hitch. 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. It’s a fantastic feature.

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

Walk Around

The Titan XD is tidy and attractive, with styling that helps make it look smaller than it is. The Titan XD closely resembles the regular Titan. It looks a bit like the Ford F-150, although it’s one inch taller. The XD grille is bigger and blunter than that on the regular Titan, while being showy and clunky compared to rivals.

It’s nearly 19 feet long, with a wheelbase of 151.6 inches, and a width about the same as rivals.

Lights mounted low in the bed illuminate the contents, even when a bed cover is installed.

Interior Overview

The cabin is nicely designed, with large controls that are user friendly. The navigation screen is small, but the rearview camera is clear, and the surround-view cameras make maneuvering in tight spaces easier. Cubby storage is plentiful, including big console storage.

We haven’t tried the bench front seat, which adds another passenger to the seating capacity, but the bucket seats are supportive and comfortable. However climbing into the Titan XD requires more of a lunge than with other heavy-duty pickups, namely the all-American ones: Ford, Chevy and Ram. It’s nearly three inches taller than the Ram 1500, which might make a difference on the step-in, for that one. But the XD’s height is the same, whether 2WD or 4WD.

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.

Summary

The Nissan Titan XD is an excellent choice as a heavy-duty hauler, or tow truck for trailers weighing less than 9,000 pounds. It’s more agile than trucks in the 2500 class, and rides a bit better, so it’s a good fit between a half-ton and three-quarter-ton truck. There are no bad choices among the heavy-duty pickups.
