Overview

       

The 2020 Titan and its even hardier big brother, the Titan XD, are starting a new generation with some exciting improvements to their technology, capabilities, and comfort. As part of this redesign, Nissan's full-sized pickup pair gets a new nine-speed automatic transmission (the previous tranny was a seven-speed), exterior updates (including new paint choices and wheel designs), and a retuned V8 engine that leads the segment in base horsepower and torque. On the technology side, Nissan's Safety Shield 360, the automaker's active safety technology suite, now comes standard on all trims, as do smartphone connectivity for both Apple and Android. The warranty is also boastworthy, with 5 years/100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, making it the best warranty of any truck sold in America.

Mechanical Details and Capabilities

   

Nissan has streamlined things in the Titan powertrain department for 2020: they've discontinued the 5.0-liter diesel option and now offer a single arrangement: a smoothly shifting nine-speed automatic transmission working with a 5.6-liter Endurance V8 that cranks out that class-best 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of torque. It's optimized with Nissan's Variable Valve Event & Lift technology, a combination of hydraulically managed variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable lift (intake) and employs state-of-the-art direct fuel injection.

   

Naturally, the Titan and Titan XD are made to move heavy stuff. As such, they're set up with standard and available features to facilitate that, such as trailer brake control, sway control, a trailer light check feature, and a rearview monitor with trailer guide lines. Towing and payload capacities vary according to trim level, drivetrain, and overall configuration. The maximum available tow rating on the Titan is 9,370 pounds, and the hauling maximum is 1,680 lb.; those respective ratings on the XD are 10,800 lb. and 2,450 lb.

   
   
   

Titan vs. Titan XD: What's the Difference?

   

As you probably know, the main differences between these truck siblings are size and capacity. The XD adds 3 inches of height and 15 inches of length, along with 900 additional pounds of payload capacity and 1,700 more pounds on the maximum towing. On the smaller Titan, Nissan offers the combination of a King Cab with a 6.5-foot bed or a full Crew Cab with a 5.5-foot bed, in a choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Those who order the latter can add the optional panoramic moonroof. The Titan XD, though, only comes as a Crew Cab with the larger bed and 4WD. The trim levels offered for both are the S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve; only the S, SV, and PRO-4X can be set up on the Titan with the King Cab.

       

Tech and Safety

   

The 2020 Nissan Titan and Titan XD outdo rival pickup trucks not just in their base engine statistics but also by offering the most standard technology features for connectivity and active safety. The base infotainment system is well equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming functions, voice recognition, hands-free texting, SiriusXM satellite radio, and two USB ports. Separate from the infotainment system is a programmable driver information display with a standard 7-inch screen.

   

On the driver-assist side, Nissan Safety Shield 360 helps drivers stay attentive and avoid obstacles all around the vehicle. The base bundle of these active safety features on the S trim consists of a driver alertness system, lane departure warning, forward collision assist, blind spot monitoring, auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear sonar, rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview monitor, reverse automatic braking, and high beam assist. That's an outstanding package, especially compared to other base-level full-sized pickup trucks. In fact, the Titan XD is the only member of the heavy-duty pickup class to come standard with rear automatic braking. Other available active safety features for these trucks are a 360-degree monitor and adaptive cruise control.
