2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Engine and Performance

"The 2019 Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup with plenty of muscle for tackling big jobs. Available in Single Cab, King Cab and regular Cab configurations, the Titan is a bit more flexible than the Toyota Tundra when it comes to cab size, although it offers only one engine choice: a potent 390-horsepower V8. Place the Titan against its domestic competition, however, and things get a bit more complicated. It's not that the Titan isn't a good truck, but the Ford F-150, all-new Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 offer so much more in the way of features, configurations and engines.- Kellybluebook

Engine and Transmission

The Nissan Titan is offered with a single engine and transmission combo which is a 5.6 liter gasoline V 8 dishing out 390 hp @ 5600 rom and 394 lb-ft of torque @ 4000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7 speed automatic transmission. It is a potent performer for overtaking on the highway or taking heavy load up the hill.

Unfortunately, transmission is rather disconcerting, the gearshifts are clunky and unrefined. Upshifts require you to lift the gas pedal and also downshifts are not the slickest. The column mounted Gear Shifting column allows for manual control of changing gears if the driver wants to.

Among its competitors, the Nissan Titan comes out as the strongest of all on-paper, facing a tad bit of competition from Toyota Tundra. The Ford-150 and Chevy Silverado comes out at last, the smallest engine is to be blamed for. Moreover, it's only Titan that offers a 7-gear setup apart from every others offering of 6-speed. The Ram 1500 also falls in the line of American brutes.

Acceleration

As it is pickup stallion don't expect much out, yet it does 0 to 60 in a ziipy 6.9 seconds and covering the quarter mile mark in 14.9 seconds. The performance numbers neither blows you away nor does it do any justice to the presence of a 5.6L V8 heavy sized engine.

Even after having the highest output engine in this segment the performance is similar to the smaller displacement powertrains. The Chevrolet Silverado-1500 however, turns out to be the quick off the line even after having a considerably smaller engine. The Toyota Tundra also disappoints you in terms of performance.

Ride and Handling

The V8 powertrain generates enough of power for everyday hauling and this light duty truck can go toe to toe with big boys in this segment. Although Nissan claims "capability of a heavy-duty hauler and drivability of a light-duty", the drivability isn't what Nissan had intended. The truck is slow and unresponsive, typically expected from a three-quarter ton hauler. It's a nightmare to maneuver around a city and parking is quite a task in itself.

The titan feels less than a truck and yet it is pretty capable. Even handling is better than some of the competitors. The steering is found to be precise too and thus the handling and maneuvering is more than easy. The suspension is well tweaked to absorb bumps and holes with ease. The ground clearance for this car is very ample too. Ride quality is also up to the mark because of the reinforced double-wishbone suspension. Only concern is the outward visibility which is pretty common with these trucks.

Braking

The Nissan Titan weighs more than 5 tonnes which is heavier than most of the trucks and it make the braking performance below average. The pedals are responsive in most situations but may feel soft on certain occasions. They offer good consistency at all speeds and don't let the trailer get unstable or sway away during hard braking.

The Ford F 150 is pretty good when it comes to braking because of the low curb weight and just takes 121 feet to stop. The brake combination of this comparison is pretty equivalent in every car but when the weight's in concern, the Titan comes out to be the heaviest.

Maximum Towing capacity

When we look at the towing capability of the Nissan pickup cab, it results in 9400 lbs in weight, which is quite considerable. The specially designed transmission tow mode can maintain low rpms for constant power while hauling. You can digitally control the amount of trailer brake intervention, which is really effective for reducing trailer sway and braking

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Fuel Economy

Nissan Titan comes with advanced fuel saving technologies such as active grille shutters and intelligent start/stop to conserve fuel. These numbers line up pretty well with those of competitors. It has a combined mileage of 18 miles per gallon, which is found just satisfactory, considering such a heavy engine.

Although its V-8 powertrain delivers respectable fuel economy, it's the only one offered; almost every rival has more than one engine choice that delivers either improved performance or increased efficiency. The Ford F 150 is the most efficient here.

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Interior

Most full-size trucks carry their tougher-than-nails persona into the cabin, but Nissan has opted for a much friendlier, almost crossover like interior. Combine that friendly look with a smaller steering wheel and good ergonomics, and the Titan is a truck anyone will want to drive -Edmunds.com

Seating and Comfort

The Nissan Titan Regular cab features a single row seating which can take up to 3 passengers (including the driver). The cabin material has been improved from the previous generation and fit and finish . The optional "Zero-Gravity" memory foam seats, as well as, dual-tone leather upholstery, heated and cooled seats in the Platinum Reserve trim deserve more recognition than they get. The legroom and headroom may not be class leading but are in no way disappointing.

The rear seating is tighter than any of the competitors. The high up seating position improves visibility, but it's still hard to maneuver. The dash is still plastic-clad with flimsy switches, but at a lower price than the rest, it can be neglected.

Titan falls somewhat in the middle of the competition after comparing it on every scale while the Chevrolet Silverado-1500 is a clear cut winner by providing the most spacious cabin.

This is the list of features being offered inside the Titan:

  • Rearview Monitor
  • Hands-free text messaging assistant

  • Manual tilt and telescopic steering column

Infotainment

Nissan has provided its Nissan Connect Infotainment system to the 2019 Nissan Titan. It is very responsive to touch inputs and has many Features. These however can't hide the shortcomings of the System. Against its Rivals from Ford and GM, the Infotainment system in the Nissan feels very dated. Some features worth mentioning though are

  • 4G Connectivity
  • Multiple USB Port connectivity
  • Bluetooth with navigation System
  • 5'' Driver's Info Display and 7'' Multimedia Display

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Exterior

Save the blocky bodies and bulging behinds for its heavy-duty rivals' the Titan has a more subdued, more streamlined appearance that's highlighted by a pair of praying-mantis-like headlights- Caranddriver.com

Dimension and Weight

The Titan is based on the boxed ladder frame of commercial van's and it is made to challenge American pickups which dominate the market. Standing 228 inches long, 79.5 inches wide and 75 inches tall, it is considered to be an appropriate sized pickup truck. Titan's upright grille is neatly housed between tall LED headlights with DRL's. The are some quirky bulged out fender lines which you will also see on the cargo box. All in all it made to perform and not to look good, still you will attract many eyes with its gargantuan dimensions.

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Safety

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Competition

Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 has been the sales chart leader for Dodge due to its versatility, endurance and durability. The power output is lower than the Titan but then you get variety of engine options which is not the case with Nissan. It has great fuel efficiency, more passenger space. On the other hand, the Nissan offers important features like Hill Decent Control, Daytime Running Lamps as standard and offers Higher Torque than the RAM which we feel is important in this segment. So if Utility is the first thing that you need to address with your Truck, The Nissan has its nose ahead than the RAM here.

Chevrolet Silverado-1500

The Chevrolet Silverado has been the best-selling truck in the Chevy lineup for the consumers. It's lighter and wider than the Nissan and offers more engine options while the Nissan only comes with a standard powertrain. On the other hand the Nissan is much powerful and offer better reliability and lower maintenance cost. The overall Ergonomics and features are slightly better in the Nissan than the Chevy as well.

Ford F-150

The Ford F- 150 comes with a 3.0 liter turbocharged 6 cylinder which is the most fuel efficient among this segment. The F 150 have impressive list of convenience features with best in class safety tech. Ride experience is on the stiffer side which is common in this class. With a bigger bed and a fuel efficient engine, the Ford outranks the Nissan by a mile. The Ford F 150 has been the best seller for decades and nothing comes close to it.

2019 Nissan Titan Crew Cab Final Verdict

Nissan Titan is here to takes it share from the crowded pickup truck market which has been dominated by Chevy and Ford. Despite the redesign for the second generation, the Nissan feels antique and lackluster because of outdated cabin. The handling is up to the mark and hauling prowess is more than other rivals in this segment. Considering the fact that "you get what you pay" for the Nissan is a vehicle for a person who knows exactly what he or she is buying.
