2021 Nissan Titan: XD, Diesel, Specs, and Redesign. The Titan isn’t the most competitive pickup truck in the market, but the recent update made things a little bit better. We expect that the next year won’t bring any particular change. We count on a familiar design, which has been slightly revised last year. Now we have a little bit of modern front end, while the cabin has been updated with various tech goodies, particularly in terms of infotainment technologies. An oil-burner has been discontinued, so don’t expect to see 2021 Nissan Titan XD either.
All this means that you may count on a familiar layout, which stands somewhere between light-duty and heavy-duty pickup trucks. It doesn’t impress in any of these two worlds. Still, it’s a good choice for those who are looking for a truck that offers decent performances but also features great overall comfort. Considering that there are no bigger changes for the next year, presume the release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2021 Nissan Titan XD Engines
When it comes to the powertrain department, the next year won’t bring any change. The diesel version has been discontinued last year, so a 5.6-liter V8 will remain the only one in the offer. This gasoline engine has received an update and now features a little bit more power than before, around 400 horsepower. There is a new 9-speed automatic transmission. An important thing to know is that 4WD is standard. The overall driving experience is pretty good, better compared to most rivals. The 2021 Nissan Titan XD towing capacity will continue to be a weak point, considering that many see this model as a heavy-duty truck, but it is actually on part with light-duty models like Ram 1500 or F-150 in this aspect. In the best case, you may count on about 13.000 pounds, while most versions actually tow no more than 11.000 pounds.
2021 Nissan Titan XD Design
As we’ve just mentioned, a big update happened last year and the Titan XD receive several interesting novelties. The base layout has remained the same, we saw a new styling, with new headlights, grille, bumper and other parts. The rest of the vehicle came with certain updates as well, but in a notably smaller portion.
On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the truck has remained the same. This is essentially the same model as the standard Titan, with a couple of upgrades, particularly in terms of the chassis reinforcement and suspension setup. When it comes to dimension, this version is slightly longer, but essentially pretty similar. Of course, there are different configurations in the offer. When it comes to the 2021 Nissan Titan XD bed size, you may count on three variants. Those are Single Cab with an 8-foot bed, King Cab with 6.5-foot bed and Crew Cab with 6.5-foot bed.
The interior has also been updated for the current model. The Nissan Titan XD 2021 is about to carry on in the same way. That means you may count on a pretty nice interior layout, which comes with a relatively attractive dashboard design but more importantly, great quality in terms of materials and craftsmanship. The cabin looks good, but you may also count on a more than decent amount of space. All models off generous front seats, while the Crew Cab model is also quite impressive in the second row, with more than 38 inches of legroom. Seats are massive and very comfortable while the driving position is pretty good. The list of standard equipment is pretty good, both in terms of tech goodies and advanced safety systems.
As we’ve just mentioned, the list of tech goodies is pretty long and we don’t expect bigger changes for the next year. Base models come with a 7-inch touchscreen, as well as with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. On the other side, higher trims come with a new 9-inch touchscreen, as well as with 5-inch display on the instrument cluster, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
When it comes to safety features, the current model is already pretty impressive. We have no doubt that the next-year model will continue in the same way. This means we may count on a long list of standard features, which includes things like assistance technology includes automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, reverse automatic emergency braking and more. Additionally, you can get adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, traffic sign recognition, a surround-view parking camera system etc.
2021 Nissan Titan XD Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes for the next year, we are pretty sure that the release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the 2021 Nissan Titan XD price, base models go around 35.000 dollars.
