2015 Nissan Titan Performance

7.0
Performance

The 2015 Nissan Titan remains one of the best-sounding trucks we've ever heard, thanks to the only engine option it offers: a 5.6-liter V-8.

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.

Nissan's big V-8 sounds brawny enough, but the Titan's performance has slipped well behind the best full-size trucks.

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.

The 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.

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.
