2021 Nissan TITAN XD Review

2021 Nissan TITAN XD Crew Cab S in Super Black

For some more grit to tackle the drives through Mobile, Prichard, and Saraland, Alabama, the 2021 Nissan TITAN XD may be just right for you. It upgrades your upgrade, so to speak, with more TITANic performance and monster strength to behold. To delve into the details of this forceful pickup, take a seat and read up on what Nissan of Mobile has to say about the XD.

Optimum Performance

Best-in-class accolades go all around for the TITAN XD with 400 horsepower mated with 413 lb-ft of torque. This stems from the Endurance 5.6L V8 engine, which is accompanied by a 9-speed automatic transmission. It offers great reliability with the shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive that enables you to switch 4LO for higher elevation and then dial it back to 4H.

Upgraded Towing

Towing receives an upgrade in the TITAN XD with the tough reinforced frame that includes commercial-grade components. This increases the amount you can tow and how much you can carry.

With the standard tow hitch receiver in place, the Crew Cab towing capacity reaches a possible 10,880 pounds. If you add on the available gooseneck hitch, it raises the amount to a maximum of 11,040 pounds. This truck holds a payload of 2,390 pounds as well.1

Count on the standard Trailer Sway Control to steady your trailer. When you press Tow/Haul mode, it comes with Downhill Speed Control that promises a smooth ride while you pick up and tow a load with you.

For surefire handling of your trailer, the available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller applies your brakes if you come across less-even terrain. The optional Remote Trailer Light Check lets you cycle through every light to ensure that they are in the OFF or ON position, depending on what you need. This is accomplished with the help of the available Nissan Intelligent Key®.

Blended Technology

2021 Nissan TITAN XD Interior View from Backseat

Starting out with the standard NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen display, stream your apps through either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to never miss a call or text. This screen received a best-in-class fist bump, and an even larger 9-inch touchscreen is available. To view your gas mileage, speed limit, and more, check it all out on the 7-inch Advanced Drive-Assist® Display.

From the center touchscreen, see if it’s the right time to pull out with the optional Intelligent Around View® Monitor. It’s a class-exclusive perk of the TITAN XD. You may also want to work out your directions for the maps and controls found in the Nissan Door to Door Navigation system.

Truck Bed and Cabin Info

As for your truck bed, it can be equipped with the available Utili-track® system for extra organization. Or you may want the optional lockable storage boxes, which can be detached from the sides of the truck bed to use as coolers.

Inside the cabin, an under-seat storage tray gives you an extra place to store useful items while the available center console provides you enough room to store your laptop in between jobs. Fold down the rear seats, and, voila, a virtual workbench is born!
