The Nissan TITAN XD stakes out a unique position between traditional heavy-duty and light-duty pickups. It features an extended 151.6-inch wheelbase – about 20 inches longer than TITAN models. But its differences don’t stop with just the length of it. To handle the Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel and Endurance® V8 gas engines, as well as the truck’s expanded towing and payload potential, TITAN XD utilizes a proven chassis design from Nissan Commercial Vehicles. Its fully boxed, full-length ladder frame is extensively reinforced and strengthened with added stiffness, vertical and lateral bending, and torsional rigidity. Our tester had the Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel. Like the TITAN XD itself, this engine fills a space between more expensive big bore diesels and less capable smaller displacement diesels. And more than just power and torque, the engine is refined, starts fast and is responsive and quiet. It is also lightweight and offers clean emissions.
Now in its third year, the 2019 TITAN XD lineup includes the two engine choices, Crew Cab, King Cab and Single Cab body styles, two bed lengths, 4×4 or 4×2 drivelines and up to five well-equipped grade levels. Besides all the various configurations now available, this year’s enhancements include creature comforts such as a new 485-watt, 9-channel amplifier Fender® Premium Audio System and all the latest technology to assure that the city-driving truck driver is just as happy in their TITAN XD as the one that pushes it to the extremes on the jobsite or off-road. All 2019 TITAN XD models are covered by a bumper-to-bumper warranty of 5-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first.
