The 2018 Nissan Titan is a second generation full-sized Titan pickup truck that comes as a radically overhauled model featuring a high-strength frame which supports an all-new body and the powerful 5.0-liter Cummins V8 turbodiesel. The model will be offered as both the regular Titan and the more robust Titan XD, which will be able to tow more than 12,000 pounds and haul more than 2,000 pounds in its bed. Among the novelties are a host of convenience upgrades such as Nissan’s Around View Monitor system, along with an in-bed, removable storage system, and a cabin with expanded storage spots and ergonomic controls.
Exterior and Interior
The 2018 Nissan Titan features a totally restyled look when compared to the outgoing pickup with only the corporate grille and side mirrors having any resemblance to the predecessor.
Muscular fenders front and rear give the truck a bold, wide stance, while the huge front fascia of the Titan XD wears a chrome mesh grille with the “TITAN” embossed across the top.
Side vents above the front tires act as functional heat extractors and optional 17-, 18-, and 20-inch wheels are offered, while the side running boards extend past the cab for an easy step up into the bed.
Around back, new taillights add extra visual appeal while the tailgate gets a small spoiler lip and an accent crease along its mid section.
Inside the cabin, wood accents complement the steering wheel, dashboard, and door panels while upscale French-stitched leather covers the rest of the cabin. Two-tone leather seats with perforated and quilted seat bottoms offer heating and cooling functions.
The dual-hue dashboard features controls that offer the driver a clean sweep of things. Also, the center console features a 15-inch laptop while still offering cup holders for front and rear passengers.
Performance features include a new off-road screen, while a 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate system keeps provides crisp sound. To cap it all off, Nissan’s “Zero Gravity” front seats and limo-like rear legroom keep the occupants comfortable.
