2018 Nissan Titan changes review
The exterior of the 2018 Nissan Titan is one of the best in the industry. With its sharp and typical pickup truck like kind of looks, the vehicle comes with its own beauty. The vehicles exteriors might not be adjusted too much. Pick-up trucks are usually left the way they are supposed to be because that is how it is with its grille, hoods, big wheels, and roof. In order to improve logistics and delivery times there is a fact the you cannot get your own combination of bed and cab.
The vehicle was built keeping comfort and safety in mind. That is how it is going to be the new model. You can find sensors placed for changing lanes and while parking. You can also think of installing a camera and infotainment which comes powered with navigation and HD touch screen in color. The seats come with a flexible 8-way technology and enhanced with wood and metal details.

Power for the new Nissan Titan 2018 comes from huge 5.6-liter Endurance V8 beast that can make up to 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. This naturally aspirated engine is going to be paired with 7-speed automatic gearbox. When it comes to drive configuration it will come with rear-wheel drive system with part-time 4WD. With this drivetrain it should have fuel economy rated at around 15 mpg in city and 21 mpg on the highway.
Unlike Toyota trucks the next generation of Titan XD will be offered with Cummins 5.0-liter V8 diesel powerplant with turbocharger. This engine can produce “just” 310 horses but it also offers great 555 lb-ft of torque. Second engine available with XD models is going to be 5.6-liter naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine that delivers 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. With possible weight reduction on the truck, we can expect better fuel consumption, and it is around 16 mpg. With enhancement on engine and overall weight drop, it could raise to 17 or 18. On the other hand, towing numbers are unknown. But we are sure 2018 Titan will top its predecessor.
