2018 Nissan Titan XD Diesel

Sales Consultant Steve Sayles explains the features and benefits of the 2018 Nissan Titan XD Diesel!

The Titan XD offers heavy duty capability in a light duty truck.  The extraordinary capability all begins upfront with Titan:

Shown in the video is a Titan equipped with a 5.0-liter Cummins V8 diesel.   Cummins is the most trusted name in the diesel industry.  In fact, this is the same engine Cummins uses in its marine or boating applications.  The Cummins diesel engine in the Titan makes this an even more durable, longer lasting engine than any other diesel offered by the competition.  The engine is made from a composite graphite iron or CGI.  This design makes the engine both lighter AND stronger than all other diesels in the pick-up truck market

The engine produces an incredible 310 horsepower AND an astounding, class leading 555 lb-ft of torque - more torque than anywhere else in its class!

The Titan is outfitted with an industry exclusive Holsett Two-Stage Turbo Charger

  • The first stage gives pure acceleration punch at the low enn
  • The second gives it constant raw power at the top end of the rev band
  • There is no Turbo lag at all

Ceramic glow plugs for cold starts are standard and these plugs NEVER need replacing!

The Titan features a class exclusive particulate filter for low emissions; making the Titan the only "clean diesel" pick-up.

Aisin, the largest and most trusted transmission manufacturer in the world; mates a heavy duty 6-speed transmission to the engine.  This makes the Titan powertrain the most capable and versatile setup available in its class!

Overall, the interior of the Titan is massive with an uncommonly large center console for extra storage.  Also on the inside, the Titan has zero gravity seats, a Nissan and industry exclusive feature that makes longer trips much less fatiguing than conventional seats offered by the competition.  The rear seats both fold up offering more space and more precious cargo room.  On top of that, the Titan has a full length load floor with a locking cargo organizer as a standard feature.

Exclusive only to Titan are "glove friendly buttons"; giving the ability to operate features on cold days while ones hands are gloved.  Titan features a simple, easy to read dash with an exclusive center "drive assist" display for easy monitoring of operations.

An Intelligent around view monitor, another Nissan exclusive; is offered with a unique center line display for aligning your trailer to the hitch.  Both Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also offered.

The Titan front end is very aggressively styled with a very large honeycomb grill and large LED lighting.  The Titan in the video above shows 18" load-bearing aluminum wheels and tires.  20" load-bearing wheels also available

Titan is the only truck offering full length step rails, allowing access not only to the cabin but to the truck bed as well.

Titan uses very large mirrors that extend for better viewing while towing and fold for fitting in tight spots.

Most critical to any truck is its ability to handle cargo and tow.  Unique only to Titan is the availability for "goose-neck" towing! ("The difference is a gooseneck trailer slides over a ball hitch in the bed of a pickup truck, while a fifth wheel trailer attaches to a pickup truck using a hinged plate hitch; the same type of hitch is used by semi trucks. The biggest advantage of gooseneck trailer over a bumper pull is its stability." https://www.fthr.com/owner-support/trailer-use-and-care/bumper-pull-trailers-vs-gooseneck-trailers)  No other truck offers this, Nissan makes it standard.  Heavy duty fittings are integrated directly into the frame giving Titan up to a class leading 12,310 pounds of towing capability!  Even the bed itself can support up to a class leading 2600 pounds of cargo.

Other notable features:

  • Electronic trailer brake controller for managing heavy loads
  • Remote Trailer Light Check from the key-fob.  This eliminates the need to use two people or to run back and forth. 
  • Titan XD comes with a factory spray in bed liner for protection of the bed and cargo.  Nissan lines the titan bed with 4 LED lights for lighting at night, no one else has this!
  • Another exclusive feature is a 120 volt power outlet that delivers up to 500W of power!
  • Nissan is the ONLY manufacturer who offers a "dual weighted" tailgate.  This feature makes tailgate management effortless!

Last but not least, Titan carries the longest and best warranty in the industry!  No one else even comes close to offering the full 5 year/100,000 mile comprehensive warranty.

There are many variations of the Titan:
XD
Gas or Diesel
Single Cab, King Cab, or Crew Cab
S, SV, Pro-4X, SL, Platinum Reserve
