Love My Titan...It Deserves More Respect! - Update

20k mile update: Titan has been great! I am as impressed with it now as I was when I bought it. Wish it had Auto 4WD, and also would like the drivers seat to adjust lower...but these are very minor compared to the list of issues I had with my 2016 F150 (didn't like the jumpy highway handling, poor headlights, horrible dealer service, many reliability quirks and recalls). Original Review: I am really impressed with the Titan and love driving it. Impressions when test driving: Its real-world V8 performance, handling, braking and comfort are equal to or better than my 2016 F150. In addition to the F150 I have owned Ridgeline and Tundra, and have test driven all choices (though only bothered to go so far as sitting in the GM). Except for favorable Ram reviews, and knocks on the Titan's exterior styling (the Titan has a couple awkward styling points in my opinion) I disagree with auto reviewers' opinion of the Titan vs competition. Minor styling aside I feel the Titan has no major shortcomings whereas the others did. Real world gas mileage of all trucks is within 2-4 mpg of each other (they're all horrible, so might as well get a nice sounding and driving V8) and configuration choices had no impact on my decision. The Titan's final negotiated purchase price (not the MSRP as often referred to in reviews) and warranty did have a major impact in my decision though...with the Titan SL I feel like I got an F150 Lariat / Limited (or Ram Laramie / Limited) for an XLT/Big Horn price...and got a 5 year/100k bumper to bumper warranty vs 3 year/36k with Ford and Ram. Impressions After 1 Month: Love: Seat comfort is the best! Safety technology works flawlessly. Engine sounds and drives awesome. Everything is where it should be and is easy to use. Headlights that work (my F150's headlights were beyond useless). Don't Love: Manually locking rear tailgate (need to use a key to lock!). The rear doors don't open as wide as the F150, and I keep trying to open wider. Transmission has been confused a couple times...thinking it's software getting used to my driving.

Great except for mileage

This is a pretty good truck. The only downside is bad gas mileage. The steering wheel feels good. The seats are comfy. Never had a problem with any of the three Titans I have owned. I would recommend this truck as long as you shop around and get a good price. The Nissan people in Gallatin, TN are some of the best. The only deal breaker the truck used to have was it's terrible infotainment screen. Now they have a large colorful one that looks great.

2021 Nissan Titan Pro4X 4WD. This is my second Titan (the prior a 2018 SL 4X4). Pros: comfortable heated & ventilated seats, quiet interior (at speed), car-like ride comfort over most surfaces, throaty growl from the strong V8. Clear midrange and treble from Fender audio system. Cons: AC doesn’t cool well on extra hot days, fuel tank size limits distance (no larger extended-range fuel tank available), heavy steering requires a lot of effort, limited adjustability for seat height on power seat, 360 camera resolution not very high (front and side cameras are low resolution), rear doors do not open as wide as front doors, updated 9 speed auto transmission shifts more erratically than prior 7 speed unit and can be frustratingly abrupt at low speeds, bass from Fender system is not clear and easily overpowers the speakers in the doors and creates “popping” sounds, clear shiny plastic screen on infotainment system easily scratches (& did so using the microfiber pad the service department sold!)

I've had a 14, 16, and now a 21. They are great trucks and work horses....and American Made! Not sure which is better. The company that is foreign owned but give jobs to Americans and makes their products here or an American company that employs in n Mexico and uses mexican parts. Anyways, the Titan is a great trucks and always has been and you don't see them around every corner so they seem to be a little unique. I would highly recommend and wish they would get the recognition they deserve for their quality and their american manufacturing.

I previously owned a 2017 Titan Platinum Reserve. It is almost like they had my list of changes I wanted to see and put them in the 2020+ Titan. I have a fully loaded up 2021 Pro-4x. The seats are crazy comfortable, the ONLY ones I liked as much were the massaging seats that are in the upper end Ford F150, BUT the shape of the Nissan Seat is better. Very solid stereo, huge sunroof, so far the build has been great. Quiet interior and it looks great (to me at least) as they tweaked the front end. 9 speed transmission is smoother than the 2017. Heated and Cooled seats also work much better so far than the 2017 (inconsistent). So far the 2021's have been very good though a shade slow to heat up, but they do and quite well. Great Tech on this truck also for parking and safety. I may have liked the previous Rockford Fosgate Stereo slightly better, but the Fender system is good for a stock system. Given the outstanding warranty it's tough to go wrong. Only drawback is the MPG as I do wish it was a bit better.
