2008 Nissan Titan New XE FFV 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)


The 5.6 puts you a quick stomp away from instant gratification. A good mash when you are not loaded will put you in the back seat. The throaty exhaust note is hard to beat. 390 lbs of torque makes the Titan the best tow rig I have ever driven. The suspension is spot-on. The interior is quiet and the seats are awesome. However, the truck has it's down side. The sloping front end and flared rear fenders make judging distance in a parking lot quite difficult- rear blind spots swallow a Caddy with 10ft to spare. The turning radius isn't exactly competitive. Fuel economy is worst in class- mostly highway, I avg'd 14. I got 17 mpg hwy with a tonneau cover and 10 mpg with an enclosed trailer.

Best Features

The sheer power is the best thing this truck has going for it.

Worst Features

This sounds stupid, but the paint is incredibly easy to scratch. Aside from that, the best change would be some modern tech in the intake/fuel system to boost the MPG. 17 should be the average, not the absolute best. I saved serious cash by trading her for a small car AND an old truck for work.
