Safety isn't the Nissan Titan's strongest selling point. While trucks from Toyota and Ford get high ratings from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Titan doesn't fare as well.

It's unrated by the NHTSA, though the Titan earned four- and five-star grades from the federal agency under its previous scoring regimen, which was changed in 2011.

The Titan runs into trouble once it gets past the IIHS' front-impact tests, where it receives a "good" score. The IIHS calls it "acceptable" for roof-crush protection, but gives it only a "marginal" score for side-impact protection--despite the fact that side airbags are standard.

All Titans now come with dual front, side, and curtain airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes and stability control. However, there are no provisions for features such as blind-spot monitors.

 

Conclusion

The Titan's crash-test scores are far from the best in class, and it's missing some of the latest safety options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
