Does the job with luxury and class

by RainerH from Pawleys Island, SC | April 20, 2020

So I finally retired my 2002 Duramax after 16 years of great service. What to get? As I’ve gotten older, my towing needs have been reduced as I’ve downsized my campers. Over time I went from large 5th wheels to our current 35’ drag behind which weighs just over 9,000lbs loaded. Since the wife was starting to complain about the rough ride of our 3/4 ton HD truck, I started looking at 1/2 ton since there were many configurations that should accommodate our weight. As I started to do my research, my conclusion was that a 35’ sail behind a 1/2 ton truck was not a good idea, primarily because most of these trucks have gotten lighter over the years. And simple physics will tell you that you want some weight in the truck to haul a large camper. Well that, and the very best weight distributing anti sway hitch you can afford. One truck intrigued me, though. The Nissan Titan XD had added weight, primarily by building a stouter frame and adding heavy duty brakes. Once I started looking more closely, it was also an attractive piece of machinery. Most important, my wife was happy with the ride. Although they offered a Cummings diesel, I was looking gas, primarily because this is my daily driver, and many short trips are just not what diesel is built for. Looking at reviews on YouTube, a straight comparison of this truck in gas vs. diesel proved that the gas engine was up to the task, in fact it out pulled the diesel on the Ike in Colorado. Check it out, So I went all the way out to Texas from SC to buy one, with low miles and plenty of warranty left. (Starting in 2017, it’s bumper to bumper 5 years and 100,000 miles, nice). Had a nice 1,300 mile check out ride home, and it was a very comfortable large touring vehicle. I was impressed. However, it needed a towing test. Well, we had scheduled a 4 day trip to a campground I Georgia prior to buying, so I got the chance pretty quickly. Having read all about towing with gas vs. diesel, I was frankly amazed at how well this thing handled my trailer. Sure, I knew the trailer was there, but no more so than it was behind my Duramax. We had hills on the interstate and on secondary roads, and yes, it shifted more, but I never saw anything near the red line as it downshifted. In fact, either down or up shifts ever got close to 4,000 rpm and my overall mpg was between 8 and 9 as I expected. So I was a happy camper. Still am, by the way. This is a gorgeous truck, I opted for some of the bells and whistles, but not all. Saved 500lbs on payload getting a gasser, and am saving at the pump every week. So, so far, so good, will update if that changes.

Great truck for everyone

The Titan XD is a great truck for buyers who need a 3/4 ton truck that has the price and handling of a 1/2 ton truck. It has plenty of power with the Cummins motor and is a joy to drive. Much smoother than my previous 1/2 ton truck.

So far great mileage!

Love everything about this truck so far. Bought it after we got the 8th safety recall on our 2014 Ram diesel as well as a ECM failure. Getting 16.7 mpg driving mixed city and highway while empty. Pulls our 7000 pound 5th wheel just as well at the same 10 mpg. Kept the Ram in case the XD wasn’t up to the task. Putting it up for sale. Don’t understand reviews that call the 5.0 Cummins slow. While not as quick as the new diesel Fords I have driven it is quicker than my Ram with its 3.42 rear axle. The 5.0 Cummins is also quieter than the 6.7 Cummins.

2017 Nissan Titan XD Overview

New/Notable

The 2017 Nissan Titan XD is a heavy-duty truck that competes with the Ford F-Series, GMC Sierra, and Chevrolet Silverado. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

The Titan XD is available in five different trim levels: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. It has two configurations: a single cab and a crew cab.

The Titan XD is the larger version of the all-new Titan. It features a broad, blockish front-end with a massive chrome grille. It has an overall length of approximately 243 inches with a near 78-inch bed. For higher trim levels, the Titan XD’s body color is split up with a gray-tone underbody and fender flares, which gives the truck a very rugged appearance. Various packages are also available for convenience, utility, towing, and comfort, which may include additional lighting, towing equipment, step-rails, sliding bed extender, power mirrors, all-season floor mats, and larger 18-inch or 20-inch wheels. All trim levels come with a center high mount stop light and 4-fixed tie-down hooks.

Under the hood, the Titan XD is powered by a new, standard 325-hp, 5.6-liter Endurance V-8 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 311-hp, twin-turbo-diesel 5.6-liter Cummins V-8 engine coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission is still available as well. The truck can come with a rear-wheel drive or a part-time 4-wheel drive configuration.

Each trim level for the Titan XD has a distinguished interior, which can come in a variety of colors and finishes. Front seat configurations include bench-style (for 6-passengers total) or bucket-style. With a USB cable, smartphones can be connected to the dash mounted NissanConnect system for navigation and music. Other standard features include a 5-inch color display, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, streaming audio, air conditioning, dual zone automatic temperature control, cruise control, power windows/locks, and rear reading lamps. A 7-inch touch screen, satellite radio, Rockford Fosgate audio system, and a DVD system are available as well.

The Titan XD’s structure features zone body with front and rear crumple zones, body side reinforcements, hood buckling creases, knee bolsters, and a shift interlock system. The truck also has standard front air bags, passenger restraint systems, anti-lock brakes, vehicle dynamic control, traction control, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Rain-sensing automatic wipers, a blind spot warning system, and rear cross traffic alert are also available.
