Nissan Titan XD 2016 Review

so You're In The Market For A Full-size Truck You Need Something That'll Confidently Haul The Big Stuff. So, You're Thinking Diesel, But The Thoughts Of Venturing Too Deep Into Heavy-duty Territory Are A Turn-off To Both Your Wallet And Your Peace Of Mind After All They Can Be A Handful In Everyday Use Well Nissan Believes It's Created The Answer To Your Half-ton Heavy Duty Dilemma This Is The All-new 2016 Titan XD It's Hard To Believe That It's Been A Dozen Years Since Nissan Tested The Full-size Truck Waters With The Original Titan The Road To This First Complete Redesign Was A Bumpy One Hindered By The Recession And A Canceled Tie-up With Chrysler For Act 2 Nissan Is Packing A Boulder Punch Leading With The Oversized Titan XD A Gas Or Diesel Powered Solution They Say Bridges The Cost And Capability Gap Between Traditional Half-ton And Full-sized Heavy-duty Pickups Now, If This Is More Than You Need The 2017 Model Year Brings A Traditional Half-ton Titan That Is Nearly 15 Inches Shorter Available Exclusively In The Crew Cab Body Style With A Large Backseat And A Six And A Half Foot Box The XD Can Be Specified In Two Or Four-wheel Drive With Either A Gas V8 Or Like Here A 5 Liter V8 Turbo-diesel Soars From.

Indiana Based Cummins And It's Not An Inexpensive Option At Five Thousand Dollars It Boosts Torque From 401 Pound-feet To 555 At A Much Lower Rpm And Buys You An Extra 1,000 Pounds Of Towing Capacity It's Extra 700 Pounds Of Curb Weight Will Cost You About 500 Pounds Of Payload However Beyond Providing More Confident Towing Nissan Says The Diesel Provides 20% Better Fuel Economy Than The Gas Engine While Hauling Full Loads Though It's Exempt From EPA Ratings. I Averaged About 14 Mpg And City Driving And Because Owners Will Most Certainly Be Towing There's An Integrated Trailer Brake Controller Trailer Sway Control A Tow Haul For The Six-speed Automatic Transmission With Downhill Speed Control And A Trailer Light Check System That Allows One Person Hookup Operation Split Towing Mirrors That Tilt Down When In Reverse Would Be Even More Helpful, If They Power Retracted And The Around View Monitor With Trailer Guides And Moving Object Detection Is A Godsend In The Trunk Of This Size Capable Of Handling 2000 Pounds Of Payload And 12,000 Pounds Towing The XD's Bed Even Has An Integrated Gooseneck Hitch For Fifth Wheel Duty Plus The LED Lighting Spray-on Bedliner And Adjustable High Down Cleats Bring Added Smartness To The Bed There's Also A Power Sliding Rear Window And A Damped Removable Electronic Locking Tailgate The Running Boards Extend Far Enough To Help Give You A Leg Up Reaching Into The Bed, But From Behind The Bumper Is A Tall Step Nissan May Market The Titan XD As A Tweener, But It Certainly Feels Like A Big Boy From The Driver's Seat Wide Tall And Long The 5 Litres Performance Is Somewhat Subdued Affected By A Go Pedal That Takes Some Pushing Before There's A Call To Action And A Transmission That's In No Hurry To Kick Down, But Once Everything Comes Together The Plentiful Torque Is Quite Satisfying For Its Durability And Strength A Recirculating Ball Power Steering System Is Used Surprisingly Connected For A Truck Of This Size Four Times When You're Hauling Nothing More Than Your Family The Titan XD Is Poised And Quiet Inside With Big Trucks Suspension Movements That Are Soft, But Not Overly Jonesy From The Outside Though The Sounds Are Clearly And Proudly Diesel Derived This Here Is The Model For The Guy With Deep Pockets In The Market For A Lux Truck With Serious Guts It's The Platinum Reserve 4x4 With A Couple Of Nominal Options Totaling Sixty One Thousand Seven Ninety Five Whereas A 4x2 Gas V8 Starts At 36,000 For 85 Platinum Reserve Is Nissan's Nomenclature For As Far As You Can Go And As Such This Truck Is Loaded With Premium Leather Zero Gravity Heated And Cooled Front Seats Heated Rear Seats Remote Start A 12 Speaker Rockford Fosgate Premium Audio System And Nissanconnect With Navigation While It Definitely Feels Like A Well-appointed Rig Some Of The Execution Falls Short Of Platinum Reserve Status Particularly The Less Than Impressive Infotainment System Which Just Doesn't Stack Up Converting Rear Seat Space Is Clever However With Seats That Tilt Out Of The Way And Shelves That Create A Flat Surface As Nissan Carved Out A Niche Segment With The Titan XD Diesel Or Well Truck Buyers Gravitate To Tried-and-true Products From For GM And Ram Nissan Calls The Titan And Every Duty Truck, But. I Think It Skews Farther To The Heavy Duty Side Terms Of Everyday Drivability No Longer Just Trying To Hang With The Cool Kids The Titan XD Is Now Part Of The Group For Test Drive Now Calm.
