Nissan Titan Towing Capacity
For those looking to buy a new pick-up, the Nissan Titan has proven to be a powerful competitor. With the choice of three cab models, the Titan can be adapted to fit your work needs. Standard to all trim models is a hefty 9-speed 5.6L V8 engine that produces 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft of torque. That’s enough force to smoothly get you from 0-60 in just 5.9 seconds. In addition to speed, you can upgrade your Titan for off-roading capabilities with the 4×4 trim. Opting for this model will get you skid plates, all terrain tires, and hill descent control to keep you in command even on slippery surfaces. Bilstein shocks can absorb the pressure from uneven back-country roads, keeping your Titan well balanced even on gravel, sand, and rocky areas. The Titan is notably fast and well-designed to handle off-roading, but we’re here to tell you more about how powerful this truck really is when it comes to trailering.
Massive Towing Capabilities With The Titan
The lowest towing capacity is found on the crew cab model with the ability to haul up to 9,350 lbs. In addition to this impressive towing capacity, the Titan can hold up to 1,950 lbs in its cargo area. This kind of strength is satisfactory for most customers, but we understand that certain clients want to go above and beyond with their pickup. For those who require higher cargo capacities, look to the king cab or XD crew cab. The king cab has a slightly higher towing capacity than the crew cab with the ability to pull 9,370 lbs. The difference between these two models is primarily in the cabin interior. Both body configurations include two rows of seating, but the king cab is more compact. Crew cab models will give backseat passengers a bit more legroom, but they also will increase curb weight slightly, leading to lower payload and towing capacities.
The big kahuna out of the three cab styles is the XD crew cab. This model has a maximum towing capacity of 11,000 lbs. With this kind of strength, you can easily tow speedboats, sailboats, campers, and more. In addition to the impressive towing capacity, the XD crew cab has a payload capacity of up to 2,240 lbs. With this model, you can confidently bring tons of cargo on the road, all while still having a great driving experience.
Tech Supported Trailering
Nissan is known for incorporating the most modern technological advances into their vehicles, and the Titan is no exception. To improve trailering and help you as a driver stay confident, the Titan includes a number of features that make towing easier than ever. The intelligent around view monitor gives you a better understanding of your surroundings with multiple camera angles and driving guide lines to make picking up a trailer more efficient. An integrated brake controller is conveniently located in the center of your dashboard, allowing you to adjust or instantaneously activate trailer brakes in the case of an emergency.
The trailer sway control system works to keep you and your trailer safe on slippery roads or while turning. Trailer sway control avoids skidding from the wheels of your Titan and from trailer wheels. When towing a heavy load, you can turn on the Titan’s tow-haul mode to protect your transmission. This driving mode will reduce the number of shift cycles while towing to give you a smoother driving experience even when hauling heavy cargo loads.
Trailering is normally a two person job at least, but with all of Nissan’s spiffy tech inclusions, you are well-equipped to handle rigging your trailer all by yourself. Using the Nissan Intelligent Key, you are able to check your trailer’s brake lights and turn signal at the touch of a button to ensure that you are adequately communicating with vehicles behind you at all times. You can opt in for tow mirrors to give you a wider view of your surroundings and reduce blind spots.
