GREEN | 4 out of 10
12-17 mpg for four-wheel drive models, 13-18 mpg for two-wheel drive models, and 9-13 mpg for flex-fuel (E85) models.
As a large pickup the Nissan Titan is anything but green. EPA ratings of 12-13 mpg city and 17-18 mpg highway are bad enough, but real-world use will often see these numbers fall lower, even without towing or hauling. With no option for anything smaller than the standard 5.6-liter V-8 engine, the Titan's only provision for those that want to minimize environmental impact is a flex-fuel (E85) capable vehicle--an option that's only realistic in the ethanol-rich Midwest.
On the whole, however, the Titan runs about average for V-8 full-size pickups, so if you need the capability offered, the fuel economy penalty may be something you can live with.
It's no green machine, and there's no option for something smaller than the standard 5.6-liter V-8 engine.
