2016 Nissan Titan XD REVIEW

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is an all-new gasoline or diesel-powered large truck with more towing and hauling capability than regular "half-ton" pickups. But although it qualifies for heavy-duty status, it's not quite a direct rival to established HD trucks from Ford, Ram and General Motors. Instead, the crew-cab Titan XD aims for a middle ground that has emerged as those products have moved upmarket. If you want to save some money but need something stronger than the half-ton Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, this Nissan is designed to hit the spot. Some might find the 2016 Nissan Titan XD's front-end styling a bit challenging, but its capabilities command respect. The Titan XD is technically a heavy-duty pickup because its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) exceeds 8,500 pounds, thanks to beefy components previously developed and proven in Nissan's NV line of commercial vans. For XD duty, the fully boxed ladder frame was modified and stretched to a 151.6-inch wheelbase that can accommodate the standard crew-cab layout and a 6.5-foot bed. Interestingly, heavy-duty trucks are legally bound to a bed length of at least 6 feet, which is why the XD doesn't offer a shorter bed like regular-duty crew cabs. This works out better in terms of versatility, but the end result is a truck that's about as unwieldy as 2500-series crew-cab models, measuring more than 20 feet from nose to tail. The standard engine is a thoroughly reworked and modernized version of Nissan's 5.6-liter gasoline V8, which now makes 390 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. But the XD's most notable available feature is the brand-new Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel engine, which makes 310 hp and a whopping 555 lb-ft of torque. That's less output than the heavy-duty diesels from Chevy, Ford and Ram, but considerably more than the Ram 1500's diesel V6 (240 hp and 420 lb-ft). By the numbers, the Ram 1500 diesel's towing capacity tops out at 8,870 pounds in crew cab form, while the typical 2500-series HD diesels can tow 14,000 to 17,000 pounds. There's a lot of room in between, and the 2016 Titan XD diesel exploits it with a healthy 12,314-pound maximum that might just be all you need. Of course, it might also be more than you need, in which case the forthcoming regular-duty 2017 Nissan Titan could be a better fit. Aside from slightly slimmer front-end styling (because the hefty diesel V8 won't be offered) and an available 5.5-foot short bed, the half-ton Titan will look similar and come with basically the same interior. As for closer Titan XD rivals, the abovementioned Ram 1500 EcoDiesel remains your only choice for diesel power in a regular-duty truck, while the recently redesigned Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and the tried-and-true Ram 2500 and Ford F-250 offer mega-capable diesel engines. If something in the middle feels right to you, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a must-drive.
