Drivers in Philadelphia, Lansdale, and Doylestown can find out what’s available for the Titan XD with our comprehensive vehicle review.
2018 Nissan Titan XD Performance and Towing
The Nissan Titan XD is available with two engine options: a 5.6-liter V8 and a 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel. The gasoline engine produces 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission, and comes with rear-wheel or part-time four-wheel drive. The Turbo Diesel produces 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque, and pairs to a 6-speed automatic transmission. With the gas engine, the 2018 Titan XD is rated to tow up to 11,270 pounds. With the Turbo Diesel, this rating increases to 12,310 pounds. This heavy-duty pickup was built to haul, with the power coming in at a mere 1,600 rpm. Payload is nearly 2,000 pounds as well, and upgrades like a reinforced front suspension, twin-tube rear shocks, an American Axle differential, and a leaf-spring rear end ensure that the truck is up to the task.
Configurations and Packages
The 2018 Nissan Titan XD is offered in Single Cab, King Cab (extended cab), and the 4-door, full-length Crew Cab. Depending on the configuration, it can be had with an 8-foot bed or a 6.5-foot bed. The beds can also be equipped with the Titan Box in-box removable storage bins for safe, secure storage outside the cabin. Four movable bed cleats with tie-down points are included, which ensures you always have the ability to haul any cargo you wish in the bed. The damped tailgate lowers softly as well, limiting wear on the bumper. For enhanced towing ease and capability, the Titan XD can also be equipped with a tow package. A receiver hitch with a 4/7-pin wiring harness connector and a trailer brake controller are included, along with front tow hooks in 4-wheel-drive models. These features help the truck handle the extra weight of the towed load, limiting wear and tear and increasing your towing confidence.
The Nissan Titan XD can be equipped with an infotainment system with a crisp, clear, 7-inch touchscreen, navigation, and NissanConnect® mobile app integration. With this system, all your media and information from your smartphone can stream directly to the infotainment system, as well as from third-party apps like Bluetooth®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Travel Link, Pandora® and iHeartRadio. A 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate premium sound system with additional entertainment apps is also available. For safety, the Siri Eyes Free system is available. Using voice commands, you can send and receive calls and text messages, find and play your music, input directions to navigation, set reminders, and much more, all without pulling your attention from the road. The 2018 Nissan Titan XD can be equipped with NissanConnect® emergency telematics, which runs through SiriusXM® to give you access to emergency assistance, vehicle health information, and service reminders.
