2019 Nissan Titan review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Nissan Titan?

The half-ton Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck seats up to six and comes in regular-cab, King Cab (extended-cab) and crew-cab forms. It is powered by a standard 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8 engine that drives a seven-speed automatic transmission. The Titan can be equipped with rear- or four-wheel drive and can tow up to 9,660 pounds when properly equipped. Competitors include the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500.

What’s New on the 2019 Nissan Titan?

Audiophiles will appreciate a newly available Fender premium stereo, and all Titans now have a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Nissan’s Rear Door Alert, which reminds you to check the backseat, is now included on King Cab and crew-cab trucks.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Titan Are Most Important?

The Titan offers three bed lengths: 5 feet, 5 inches; 6 feet, 5 inches and 8 feet. Available cargo bed features include a spray-on bedliner, 120-volt power outlet and a tie-down system with adjustable aluminum cleats.

In addition to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the touchscreen multimedia system also includes Bluetooth streaming audio and USB connectivity. Built-in navigation is optional. Standard convenience features include remote keyless entry and power windows. Luxury options include leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, a heated steering wheel and a power-sliding rear window. Optional active safety features include a blind spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert.

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Titan?

The Titan went more than a decade without a substantial redesign, but this generation is an all-around improvement; a powerful V-8 drivetrain and relative driving ease are highlights. We'd like to see more available active safety features as well as a more luxurious Platinum Reserve trim level for luxury truck shoppers, but if you aren't tied to one of the domestic brands, the Titan is worth a test drive.

Unexpected Favorite

I had a lo g histoey with Fords. My last truck wad an unbreakable 2013 F150 with 166k miles-still going strong. I was actually looking into Dodge based on ride quality and pricing but test drove 3 Rams, one had a tailgate jammed, another with major 4WD issue and a third where the check engine light came on during the test drive related to the EVAC system. I l then decided go back to the tried/true F150 but again test drove a 4WD with some major issues in 4wd low. Some transmission issues I read about on the F150 and the $2k 'reputation premium' also gave me pause. I drove a Titan crew cab out of curiosity and immediately felt like I was in a nicer truck than both, good balance between easy driving and response- some level of feedback from the road but not too bumpy and very comfortable seats. The V8 growl was satisfying and the truck is still under warranty for another year. I like the look outside (not so BOXY!!) and inside and felt very comfortable with the Titan even though it was not i initially on my radar. I noticed reviews from 'experts' heavily downrated the truck quoting less engine options and less towing- not issues I considered major problems. Reviewers love to dive into the details, they enjoy breakimg down lots of options which are certainly not as varried with the Titan. They also really like the supertrucks like the TRX or Raptor-almost seem to be mad a Nissan for not giving them the Beast-Mode Excess trim level (that almost no one buys) to have fun with on a weekends. One said the radio dial was too small!! Give me a break. Owner reviews, on the other hand, were very positive. My advice would be to drive one. I bet it would suprise you. I think the Nissan hits all the sweet spots for a full size truck and looks great to boot. The differenes between the full size truck offerings are generally exagerated. The Titan is legit...drive it and you'll see.

Excellent Truck

This is my second Nissan Titan that I have owned an I love it. A good heavy vehicle that is very reliable, roomy, handles great, great styling and has the power. I still have my original 2004 Titan with 267.000 miles on it which is still running good and has never let me down once. How much more reliability can you ask for then that.

Cylinder 7 blew at 29k miles

I love my titan but I'm also disappointed in it. Around 22k miles I noticed a slight tick coming from the driver's side of the engine. Was told by nissan it was my air conditioning system turning on. It continued getting louder. When I had it in for its 25k service again I was assured it was nothing. Before I got to the 30k service at 29k miles it sounded like a diesel truck. FINALLY nissan acknowledged my concerns when I took it in and told them forums suggest cylinder 7 as being the problem. Sure enough cylinder 7 was prematurely worn out. Nissan rebuilt not replaced my engine and they had my truck for 2 months! Now the transmission is slipping at low speeds.
