What is the Titan?
The Titan is Nissan's entry into the cutthroat full-size pickup truck market, a field so cutthroat that 2024 might be the Titan's final year of production. Nissan will continue to offer the midsize Frontier so its lineup wouldn't be left without a pickup, but the Titan has failed to gain a true foothold in the market.
For 2024, the Titan will likely still be offered in standard and Titan XD guise, with the XD sitting somewhere in the gray space between light- and heavy-duty pickup trucks. The Titan comes in two cab configurations — extended and crew — and comes with a standard V8 engine. Other pickups offer more powertrain diversity, with some even offering hybrid and electric models that the Titan just can't compete with. It also falls behind the competition when it comes to max towing and payload capacity.
Where the Titan does have some distinction is on the safety front, and Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of safety technology, which includes adaptive cruise control, comes standard. But this isn't quite enough to move the needle in this segment, where numbers and capability largely trump features.
