To put it bluntly, if safety if one of your chief concerns, you can probably do better with one of the alternatives to the 2013 Nissan Titan. There are several full-size trucks that have earned top crash-test ratings and offer some advanced-safety features and options, but the Titan isn't one of them.

The Titan's ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety are among the lowest of any full-size truck. Although it earns a 'good' score for frontal impact, it fails to make the honor roll in side or rear impact, and it earns another worrisome rating of just 'acceptable' for roof strength--particularly important in more rollover-prone pickups.

Under the previous (and much more lenient NHTSA ratings system, it did earn four- and five-star ratings, although it hasn't been rated under the new system.

Safety features otherwise for the Titan are nothing special compared to other full-size trucks, but a rearview camera system has been either included or made available for most of the 2013 lineup. 

 

Conclusion

Crash-test scores for the Titan have been lackluster, and the Titan's safety-feature set is no standout.

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.
