SAFETY | 7 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal impact; 'marginal,' side impact; 'acceptable,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength
IIHS

Not yet rated
NHTSA




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.

 

Conclusion

Safety features have improved somewhat, but the Titan doesn't score well in crash tests.

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.
