The 2019 Nissan Titan: God-like Power in the Hands of Mortals
They don’t call this the Titan for nothing; like the parents of the Greek gods, the Titan is a force to be reckoned with. With America’s best truck warranty of 5 years/100,000 miles, a new 7-inch infotainment system that rocks both Apple and Android support and a new Fender audio system, you'll be able to rock out inside no matter how rocky it gets outside. The starting MSRP of $30,690 means grabbing a new Titan won’t be a boulder in your budget either.
The 2019 Nissan Titan comes in a variety of flavors. The S model starts you out with the 5.6-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine, the full-length, fully boxed ladder frame, Easy Clean vinyl flooring and 40/20/20-split bench front seat with flip down center seat with armrests.
Moving on up is the SV, with an Advanced Drive-Assist Display, body-color front grille, carpeted flooring, stain-resistant cloth seat trim and Trailer Sway Control.
For those seeking off-road power and control, the PRO-4X model is perfect for you. With P275/70R18 all-terrain tires, Bilstein off-road performance shocks, an electronic locking rear differential, a transfer case skid plate and hill descent control, you’ll be able to take your cargo wherever it is needed.
Finding the right interior size is easy, with Single, King, and Crew cab options for the S and SV, while the PRO-4X goes big, with King and Crew cab only. .
Interior and Technology
Comfortable seating is a must and the 2019 Nissan Titan provides it in spades. Heated and cooled front seats available are available, as well as heated rear outboard seats and a heated steering wheel. If you pick up the Remote Engine Start System, you can activate these features and the Intelligent Climate Control before ever stepping into the truck, making it perfect for thawing you out on cold early-morning work days.
The rear seat hides several useful features. Folding it down makes for a quick and convenient desk. Flipping it up gives access to a covered storage area. The cover of the storage area can be folded out to create a flat loading floor. Of course, if you need more internal storage, the King Cab features a Seat Delete package that lets you trade rear passenger seating for a flat rear load floor and rear wall finish equipped with tie-down hooks to hold even more cargo.
An Advanced Drive-Assist Display gives you a choice of 13 different screens on a 7” screen in front of the steering wheel, such as safety features and fuel economy.
Trucks aren’t really known for high-quality audio, but Nissan is aiming to change that with the inclusion of an available Fender Premium Audio System. Fender, one of the biggest names in music, helped create this 12-speaker system with the kind of deep, rich bass you won’t find in other trucks.
Phone connection of all kinds is a breeze with the Titan. Unlike competing cars that cater to only one market, the Titan has the available option of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Nissan Door to Door Navigation makes getting around even the most confusing streets a breeze, starting from your smartphone as you walk out of your house to the car’s own displays when you take the wheel.
NissanConnect Services, powered by SiriusXM, offers a range of plans features to keep your connected to your car and the world around it in even the worst circumstances.
Sign in to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant just like on your phone and in your home. Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notifications and Emergency Calling can get aid to you in the event of an accident.

Connected Search, Journey Planner, and Destination Assistance can help you find and plan for new adventures on the road of life.
Engine and Performance
The heart of all 2019 Nissan Titans is a standard 5.6-liter 32-valve DOHC V8 engine that's paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission. This V8 brings 390 horsepower, 394 lb.-ft. of torque and a fuel economy of 15 mpg city to 21 mpg highway.
Towing and payload capacity ranges depending on cab size. The Crew cab offers 9,240 lbs. of towing power and 1,620 lbs. of payload capacity. The King can pull 9,450 lbs. and carry 1,640 lbs.
Safety and Driver Aids
One of the 2019 Nissan Titan’s newest features is a rear door alert. You won’t have to worry about back doors unintentionally hanging loose after loading up the back seat and getting out of the truck. This feature is standard on King Cab and Crew Cab.
A standard six airbag system, including dual-stage passenger supplemental front air bags and seat belt sensors ensures you and your passengers are protected from many angles in the event of an accident.
The Intelligent Around View Monitor is available to give you a digital all-seeing eye, letting you see a virtual view around all around your Titan. On-screen warnings alert you to moving objects encroaching on your virtual bubble, like rogue shopping carts. Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert
and Available Blind Spot Warnings detect cars coming at you from hard-to-see angles and alerts you to their presence, especially when backing up.
In the event of oversteering, Vehicle Dynamic Control reduces engine power and applies brake pressure to the most important wheels to help maintain control. When wheelspin occurs, the Traction Control System reduces the throttle automatically to help regain traction. Anti-Lock Brakes and Electronic Brake Force Distribution help your car stop anytime, anywhere.
