Expert Quotes:

Compared to the recently tested 2011 Silverado and F Series rigs, the Titan's ride felt skittish and overly responsive to passing imperfections.
Motor Trend

However, the rather stiff suspension (especially on Pro-4X models) can make the Titan feel skittish in off-road situations.

Titan is relatively easy to drive for a big pickup.

In extreme cornering situations, the Titan's spirited handling impressed.

The 2014 Nissan Titan has only one engine available–a 5.6-liter V-8–but that engine is one of the best-sounding we've heard in a truck.

That sound reminds us a little bit of the NASCAR circuit, which works well for this Mississippi-built machine. The V-8 produces 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, and while those aren't class-leading, the Titan always feels willing, always able to get up and move.

Towing capacity for the Titan is impressive--up to 9,500 pounds with the King Cab and 9,400 pounds with the Crew Cab--although in this age of ever-burlier trucks, it stands well behind the Silverado/Sierra's top tow rating of 12,000 pounds.

Considering the Titan's size and heft, it handles quite well (at least compared to other large pickups) and it feels smaller and nimbler than it is, with good low-speed maneuverability.

PRO-4X models are only offered with four-wheel drive, while the rest of the lineup can be had in either rear- or four-wheel drive. If you're considering the PRO-4X, keep in mind that its suspension tuning is very firm--to the point of being skittish on some surfaces. But with ten inches of ground clearance and various upgrades like skid plates, the ability is there.



The Titan's performance is just average these days, what with the exceptional new GM V-8 and Ford's EcoBoost six.

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.
