2018 Nissan Titan
Why Buy a Nissan Titan?
Just like most Nissan vehicles, the Titan is an impressive combination of performance and comfort, finding the perfect balance between style and substance. An upscale interior and powerful V8 that towers over most other base engine trucks that boast a V6 characterizes the Nissan truck. Even with that beefy V8, the Titan still provides ample room for passenger comfort and comes equipped with Nissan's Zero Gravity seats, which are specifically designed to reduce driving fatigue and maintain comfort over the long haul, a welcome addition to many truck drivers.
What is the Nissan Titan's Tow/Haul Capacity?
The base model 2018 Nissan Titan can tow upwards of 9,730 pounds, whereas the more powerful Titan XD model is able to push that number to 11,270 pounds, making the task of towing a boat or other large trailer a breeze, and not lacking power when you need it most.
Which Nissan Titan is Best?
The Titan lineup this year is composed of the S, SV, Pro-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve trim levels. The base model S provides a strong set of features including 18-inch rims,, LED bed lights in the cab, lockable tailgate, remote entry, push-button start, A/C, vinyl wear resistant flooring, split-fold front and back seats, as well as the ever-impressive NissanConnect infotainment system with a 5.0 inch display, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, auxiliary jack, and a USB port for mobile connectivity.
If your goal in looking for a truck is to find the sweet spot between performance and comfort, but staying within a budget, then the SV trim level will meet those expectations. If performance and utility is your focus, then the Pro-4X is definitely the pick for you, adding onto the SV package with upgraded off-road tires, hill-descent control, Bilstein shocks, locking rear differential, seven-pin wiring harness and receiver hitch, spray-in bedliner, fog lights, and automatic headlights. Extra off-road add-ons include skid plates and tow hooks.

In terms of safety, this level also adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and a rearview camera.
