The 2018 Nissan Titan is the continuance of the new-generation pickup truck that Nissan hopes will give it a strong foothold in the North American truck market. The Titan comes in two formats, the standard Titan full-size, half-ton pickup reviewed here and the bigger Titan XD, a heavy-duty half-ton truck reviewed separately.
The 2018 Titan hasn’t changed much from its 2017 model year, but Nissan added a few key options, including a new King Cab body style with a long bed. This adds a much sought-after extended cab option that doesn’t get as big as a four-door crew cab, but adds some space to the standard two-door cab. Also added are some appearance packages, including a cool new Midnight Edition that brings a blackout option for the Titan.
The Nissan Titan is competitive in pricing, basic capability and good looks. It offers another alternative to the usual suspects in the full-size pickup truck market.
