2016 Nissan Titan Safety

7.0
Safety

Along with its new four-wheel-drive electronics, the 2016 Titan gets an available rearview camera, one with guides that help with hitching a tow vehicle to the truck.

Nissan's pioneering surround-view cameras will be an option as well. So will blind-spot monitors, and front and rear parking sensors.

Crash-test scores are not available and, in the past, have not been great.

We expect much better crash-test performance from the new Titan; the current one hasn't been subject to the latest small-overlap crash test implemented by the IIHS over the past couple of years.

The Titan XD offers good outward vision; its towing mirrors are small but effective for towing. They can be extended manually, by standing outside the truck and yanking on them, neither as convenient nor as effective as the big, power-extendable mirrors on the Ford Super Duty. The surround-view camera compensates to maintain the same view whether the mirrors are extended.
