Specs & Capability

A 5.6L Endurance® V8 engine comes standard in both the 2021 Nissan TITAN and the TITAN XD. It can deliver up to 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque in either truck. With that kind of power, you’ll be able to tow a boat to Mobile Bay, bring a camper on your next family vacation, or haul a heavy payload for your business.

The Nissan TITAN can tow up to 9,310 pounds and handle a payload of 1,690 pounds. With the TITAN XD, you’ll be able to set up 5th-wheel/gooseneck towing. This lets you tow up to 11,040 pounds. Plus, it carries a payload of 2,390 pounds.

Both trucks come with a 9-speed automatic transmission that features Tow/Haul Mode. All-wheel drive comes standard on the TITAN XD, while the TITAN offers a choice between all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive.

Interior Dimensions & Amenities

The 2021 Nissan TITAN is available in two cab sizes. The King Cab features seating for five, with plenty of room to get comfortable. There’s 41.8 inches of legroom up front and 24.8 inches in the back seats. The Crew Cab and the TITAN XD feature just as much legroom in the front seats, but your passengers will have more space to stretch out, with 38.5 inches of legroom.

That extra space can also come in handy when you want to keep things close by. There’s a storage compartment under the back seats, and if you fold the second row down, you can create a virtual workbench, or fold them into the floor.

Cloth seats come standard, but stain-resistant upholstery and leather seats are also available. You can add a traditional leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as premium amenities like power-adjustable and climate-controlled front seats.

Voice recognition also comes standard, so you can control the whole system without taking your eyes off the road. Plus, Nissan Door to Door Navigation with Premium Traffic can help you find the fastest route.
