Trim Levels and Features

The Nissan Titan comes in 5 trim variants - S, SV, SL and Platinum Reserve. There is also another trim variant known as Pro-4X, designed for off-road conditions. Similar to other full-size trucks, the used Nissan Titan is also available in various cab configurations as well as plenty of other options. Depending on how you intend to use the Titan, you can get it as a single cab with an 8-foot long bed, a crew cab with a shorter 5-foot 7-inch bed or as an extended cab featuring a standard bed. The single Nissan Titan cab can accommodate two or three occupants while the crew cab and the extended cab can seat five or six, based on the configuration.

The base S model is available with any of the 3 cab designs. It comes standard with an active grille shutter, 18-inch steel wheels, cab-mounted LED bed lights, remote locking, and unlocking, a lockable damped tailgate, manual exterior mirrors, power windows and locks as well as tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. It also comes standard with push-button ignition, cloth upholstery, split-folding front bench seat, split-folding rear set, and a vinyl floor. You will also get a five-inch color display, NissanConnect, Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a 6-speaker stereo system, featuring an auxiliary input, a USB port, and a CD player.

For the SV trim, you will get all the main features that come standard with the lower trim. You will also get chrome exterior trim, front tow hooks, a carpeted floor, power-adjustable heated mirrors, vinyl, and cloth upholstery, satellite radio, driver information display, as well as Nissan's Trailer Sway Control, designed to keep the trailer stable when driving on poor-quality roads or windy conditions.

The Pro-4X trim comes with all the equipment found in the SV variant. It also comes standard with off-road-tuned Bilstein shocks, hill descent control, a lockable rear differential, a 7-pin wiring harness, a receiver hitch, and skid plates. It also comes standard with automatic headlights, automatic wipers, foglights, a spray-in bed liner, keyless entry and ignition, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, front bucket seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, unique cloth upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a navigation system, and a seven-inch touchscreen. The SL model drops most of the off-road gear present in the Pro-4X. It then adds heated front seats, leather upholstery, remote start, wood trim, a 12-speaker audio system, 20-inch alloy wheels, and parking sensors. On the other hand, the Platinum Reserve comes standard with most of the features that are available for the lower trims.

Performance and Handling

The Nissan Titan comes with two engine options. There is a standard 5.6-liter, V8 engine, which is ideal for most shoppers. There is also the Titan XD, which comes with a Cummins turbodiesel V engine. The standard 5.6-liter engine is designed for highway speeds and normal hauling needs. On the other hand, the Cummins turbodiesel is designed for robust hauling needs, at low speeds. Both engines deliver plenty of power. If you are planning to do off-road driving regularly, then you should go for the Titan Pro-4X. The Nissan Titan is one of the most enjoyable full-size trucks to drive, whether you are in the city or cruising on the highway. Its steering is responsive and the brakes provide adequate stopping power. However, its wide turning radius can prove to be an issue when maneuvering tight city streets.

New Vs. Used Nissan Titan

The latest models of the Nissan Titan come standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. But apart from these two features, there isn't much difference between a 2020 or 2019 Nissan trim and a 2018 or 2017 model. Therefore, when you buy a used Nissan Titan, you will get similar capability and performance, but at a lower cost. You can even realize further cost savings by purchasing a Nissan Titan from the previous generation of 2004 to 2015. However, it's important to note that trucks from the previous generation don't have as much towing power as the new generation models. Also, the older generation trucks have a lower fuel economy.


The Nissan Titan offers a nice blend of comfort and utility. It's stronger and more comfortable than some of its competitors, even at the base trim. It also offers ample passenger comfort and space, while providing adequate power for your towing and hauling needs. If you are looking for an affordably-priced, well-equipped and hardworking full-size truck, then the Nissan Titan offers the best value for money.
