SAFETY | 7 out of 10
'Good,' frontal impact; 'marginal,' side impact; 'acceptable,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength
Not yet rated
Put simply, the 2014 Titan doesn't fare as well in the realm of safety as many of its competitors. Several of those alternatives have earned top crash test ratings and include modern active safety technologies, but the Titan just isn't one of them.
Safety features 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 current lineup.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 have improved somewhat, but the Titan doesn't score well in crash tests.
