    Read our most comprehensive review of the Nissan Titan XD's of a heavy -duty pickup: a bulky body, a beefy frame, and a torquey diesel-engine option.

    This year, Nissan adds a Midnight Appearance package that adds a few darker accents to the exterior, but we're not sure that the foot long, 5,pound truck .

    There were plenty of nightmare stories from the first year model XDs, but that is true from new products from most companies. The best mileage I managed occurred on a mile interstate round trip through the northern tier of Pennsylvania and into southern New York, where the Titan XD returned To Nissan's credit, they wiped the slate clean and started with a completely new design for both the standard Nissan Titan, as well as the larger Titan XD we tested. On the highway and over rough terrain, the Titan XD provides a well-mannered, compliant ride.

    Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Diesel Long-Term Verdict - Motor Trend

    In most cases the Titan XD proved useful, but we did find some capability shortcomings and a few ongoing issues. The Nissan Titan XD represents the first attempt by a non-American automaker to offer a full-size pickup larger than a half-ton. With the realization that a niche market segment exists between the traditional light-duty half-ton and heavy-duty three-quarter-ton pickups, Nissan aimed for something in between. The automaker benchmarked year-old domestic three-quarter-ton pickups for the unofficially called eXtra Duty Titan.

    Unfortunately, modern half-ton pickups have already surpassed that benchmark—at least in payload capacity. Although Evans was able to use the Titan XD for the majority of his landscaping needs, he did need to rent a Ford F for the truly heavy-duty chores.

    Not long after inheriting the Titan XD , I began the first of many adventures helping friends move both long and short distances. I was even given the opportunity to tow a couple of vehicles long-distance. On two separate occasions I used the Titan XD for towing: With a maximum towing capacity of 12, pounds for a Cummins-powered four-wheel-drive Titan XD, neither of the compact vehicles and tow dolly combos came close to half of the XD's max tow rating.

    In fact, even from a dead stop, the XD didn't even notice the cars hooked onto the back. I kept an eye on my rearview mirrors to ensure the cars were still attached. For comparison, when I used our previous long-term Ram EcoDiesel to tow my newly purchased Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham , I noticed a slight tug upon initial start before effortlessly getting up to speed.

    The Ram with its 3. Although the Cutlass' midsize body-on-frame platform and tandem trailer combo were much heavier than the compact vehicles I towed with the Titan XD, for frequent towing chores, the Titan XD might have the advantage over the half-ton Ram. In addition to towing long distances, the Titan XD proved useful for hauling over both long and short distances. The rear crew cab was routinely packed to the ceiling with boxes and odds and ends while the bed was stuffed with either furniture or appliances—sometimes both.

    The bed offers lots of useful tie-down points, including adjustable hooks along the top of the bed. Although the Titan Boxes were useful for storing ratchet straps, bungee cords, and a tow hitch, they did eat up lots of real estate in the bed. Fortunately, they are removable. Just four bolts two star bolts at each end and two socket heads inside the lockable compartment hold the Titan Boxes to the bed sides.

    They were easy to remove and fairly easy to replace, thanks to my trusty rubber mallet used to line the bolt holes up. With the Titan Box hinges mounted toward the inside of the bed, the lid can be difficult to open when the bed was full. Although all this tire swapping was for a tire comparison , off-road driving in the Pro-4X felt more like play than work. With the odometer showing more than 30, miles, we took our Titan XD in for its third service, which consisted of an oil and filter change, a tire rotation, a battery service, a new air filter, a new cabin air filter, a new radiator cap, new wiper blades, a coolant system service, an air-conditioning service, fuel conditioner, and a brake inspection.

    While at the dealership, we had the reoccurring issues checked out. We also were informed that the power steering fluid was low. The tech drained and filled the power steering fluid and checked the system lock to lock, which seemed to clear up the binding and moaning coming from the steering system. Additionally, the infotainment system was updated to fix the Bluetooth glitch that caused a piercing sound to come through the speakers just before the system rebooted the issue only happened during lengthy phone calls.

    The infotainment update also fixed the system's flickering backlighting. The intermittent passenger seat-belt light issue where the light turned on several hours into drive, even when the passenger seat was empty was not repeatable. These issues never recurred during our remaining time with the Titan.
