Goldilocks would be baffled in the Titan XD. It endeavors to strike the “without flaw” adjust amongst light-and substantial obligation pickups. It has the trappings of a substantial obligation pickup: a cumbersome body, a meaty casing, and a torquey diesel-motor choice. In any case, truly, its ordinary capacity and execution are, best case scenario scarcely superior to those of light-obligation trucks. Since the general Titan as of now handles that class, the XD is an astounding, in the middle of suggestion. Its accessible Cummins V-8 diesel is selective to the XD show, yet the powertrain’s rough task and the reiteration of issues we encountered with our long haul illustration are disturbing. Those persuaded that the huge Nissan can adjust day by day utilize and work manhandle will appreciate a superior ride than in its HD adversaries, and they will acknowledge especially comfortable seats and cool payload bed choices. The Titan XD is neither incredible as a light-obligation nor persuading as an overwhelming obligation pickup.
In the wake of getting two new body styles and a large number of new bundles in 2017, the Titan XD moves into 2018 with a solitary adjustment to the choices list: Nissan’s Midnight Edition bundle. It incorporates dim outside components and one of a kind badging for a more evil appearance. The bundle is just accessible on group taxicab SV and SL models furnished with the discretionary diesel motor and four-wheel drive; outside shading decisions are constrained to Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and additional cost Pearl White.
The Titan XD was all new in 2016; the significant updates in 2017 were the expansion of standard and expanded (ruler) taxicabs to the XD lineup. Nissan likewise presented five new alternative bundles. The Heavy-Duty Front GAWR bundle gives stiffer front springs. The Leather bundle covers all seats in stow away and includes front-traveler situate control alterations. The Chrome and Texas Titan Edition bundles slather chrome on essentially every accessible surface, including the 20-inch wheels; the Texas Titan Edition additionally incorporates novel badging. The Platinum Reserve Bed Utility bundle packages a back guard step and a power-locking rear end, and it coordinates stockpiling encloses to the bed.
Since the Titan XD spaces amongst light-and overwhelming obligation pickups, we’d hold costs under wraps by choosing the SV Crew Cab that begins at $42,695. The diesel powertrain isn’t justified regardless of the additional $4800, as it needs refinement, and its towing and payload appraisals versus the gas motor remain moderately unaltered. Adding four-wheel drive to any model expenses about $3000, and we’d do as such, on the grounds that what great is a truck that can’t go wherever you require it to go? Standard highlights on the SV include:
– Bed-mounted gooseneck hitch and Class IV trailer hitch
– Power-movable, warmed tow mirrors
– Integrated trailer-brake controller
The Utility bundle ($1145) includes valuable redesigns including a splash on bedliner, LED box lighting, and better back seat stockpiling. The SV Convenience bundle ($2695) is required with the Utility bundle and includes 20-inch wheels, running sheets, warmed front seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, dynamic security helps, and the sky is the limit from there. After all that, our Titan XD SV costs $49,515.
