You’ve seen both the Nissan Titan and Nissan Titan XD in the Nissan truck lineup, but what makes these similarly named trucks different from each other? Over a difference in performance capabilities, size, and the availability of a diesel engine variant, these Nissan trucks offer their own set of unique features. West End Nissan is your top Nissan Edmonton dealer for Nissan vehicles, including the hard-working trucks we’re comparing today! Read on and learn more about the differences between the Nissan Titan and Nissan Titan XD.
The Nissan Titan comes with a 5.6L Endurance® V8 gas engine, delivering 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. This engine delivers more horsepower (390 compared to 310) than the diesel option on the XD, but suffers in torque ability. Towing capacity maxes out at 9,320 lbs, so you won’t have any trouble on the Titan to take on big towing loads. The half ton size of the Nissan Titan is smaller than the Nissan Titan XD, but still maintains all of its high level utility. For its size, its wheelbase is 139.8 inches, overall length is 228.1 inches, overall width 79.5 inches and overall height is 74.5 inches. And, starting at a lower price than the XD, at $36,498, it doesn’t take much to get into the Nissan Titan!
Nissan Titan XD
The Nissan Titan XD is special between these two Nissan trucks in that it comes with the availability of a diesel engine. This 5.0L V8 Cummins Turbo-Diesel engine clocks in with 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque. Less horsepower than the gas engine of both trucks, but providing massively more torque in exchange. As well, it offers much more towing capacity with 11,960 lbs of strength to take on heavy loads with ease. In the Nissan Titan XD’s larger size, it more easily bridges the gap toward a full-size pickup over the regular Titan. The wheelbase is 151.6 inches, overall length is 242.7 inches, overall width 79.5 inches and overall height 78 inches, all either at the same measurement or larger than the Titan. The MSRP of the Nissan Titan XD starts at $56,998, coming it at a higher entrance point than the regular Nissan Titan.
