2019 Nissan TITAN XD Crew Cab KBB Expert Review
The 2019 Nissan Titan XD occupies a unique position, offering the power and towing ability of a heavy-duty full-size pickup with fuel efficiency and affordability more akin to that of a half-ton truck. With its robust frame and available 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine, the Titan XD straddles that line between a half-ton and 3-quarter-ton pickup. But if you study the specs, you’ll see that a new Ford F-150, an obvious competitor, is rated to tow more than this Nissan.

If you’re looking for an attractive full-size pickup available with a trustworthy and powerful Cummins diesel engine, the 2019 Nissan Titan XD, built in Canton, Mississippi, is calling your name.

All three of the domestic half-ton pickups are newer than the Titan XD; no surprise, they all deliver a better ride and fuel economy. Also, the XD’s diesel engine represents about a $6,000 premium over the 5.6-liter gasoline V8, so it will take longer to pay for itself.
What's New for 2019
For 2019, all Titan XDs are equipped with a 7-inch touch screen featuring Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability. In addition to diesel models getting a larger diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank, the Titan SV now sports a body-color outer grille with a gloss-black metallic inner treatment. Midnight Pine Metallic and Moab Sunset Metallic have been added as exterior colors, while Rear Door Alert is now standard on all Titan King Cab and Crew Cab models.
Forget the notion that big trucks are clunky and unwieldy. The Titan XD is an easy everyday machine, provided you don’t have to park frequently in tight parking lots. It’s quieter than you might expect, and even the available 5.0-liter turbodiesel V8 is sometimes tough to hear with the windows down. Luxury abounds inside, where the XD is handsome, though perhaps not quite up to par with luxurious new pickups such as the Ford King Ranch or Ram Laramie Longhorn. With its heated and quilted leather seats, its 360-degree Around View monitor, standard Apple CarPlay and new 7-inch touch screen, the Titan makes life comfortable and convenient. Sure, it’s a large Nissan pickup truck, but you quickly get used to it. And the Cummins turbodiesel V8 offers plenty of torque for towing. In testing, the diesel XD had no issues pulling a 9,500-pound trailer.
CUMMINS TURBODIESEL V8
Cummins builds some of the best diesel engines in the world, and the 5.0-liter turbodiesel V8 in the Titan XD is no exception. With 555 lb-ft of torque, the Titan XD is locomotive-like in its ability to tow and haul, and it gets slightly better fuel economy than its gasoline-V8 counterpart.
AROUND VIEW MONITOR
Nissan’s Around View monitor provides a 360-degree view of the area outside the truck. This feature is not only helpful when parking but can be useful in the wilderness by showing low obstacles in the Titan’s path or when hooking up a trailer without the assistance of a spotter.
Although the 2019 Titan XD is a tough and rugged truck, it has available features sure to please the most spoiled pickup buyer. The top-level Platinum Reserve trim model exudes luxury, what with its heated and cooled leather seats, its open-pore wood accents and aluminum doorsill plates. In one of the most attractive XD interiors, wood trim is complemented by rich-looking seats, dash and door panels, all done in black and cocoa brown. Features such as hands-free text messaging, navigation, NissanConnect with mobile apps, Bluetooth, and a 110-volt power outlet enhance daily drives or cross-country trips.
While some folks think the XD doesn’t have a unique, highly individual appearance, it nevertheless looks tough and draws plenty of attention. The front overhang had to be extended to accommodate the Cummins turbodiesel grille, the intercooler and the extra battery, and it’s clear to us that Nissan engineers prioritized aerodynamics to maximize fuel economy. Note: Most new XD models come standard with an integrated gooseneck hitch that has been updated for 2019 with a plug inside the bed.
Notable Standard Equipment
While a warranty isn’t necessarily standard “equipment,” it’s important to grasp that all Titan XDs have a great bumper-to-bumper protection plan that lasts a segment-leading five years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Protection of another kind (occupant) is provided by frontal and roof-mounted curtain airbags, plus seat-mounted side-impact supplemental airbags, all standard. Also standard: hill-start assist, aluminum step rails, 17-inch steel wheels, a lockable tailgate and a very thorough gauge package. Other standard fare includes a hands-free, text-messaging assistant, 6-speaker stereo and USB ports (there are now two for 2019), plus steering-wheel controls, cruise control, Bluetooth, rear reading lights and NissanConnect with mobile apps. All XDs except the S have standard skidplate protection.
Notable Optional Equipment
The 2019 Nissan Titan XD is sold as an S, SV, PRO-4X, SL or Platinum Reserve model, with two cabs, three bed lengths and 2- or 4-wheel drive (2WD, 4WD). The Cummins V8 turbodiesel, built in Indiana, is the most significant option. Other notable options include 20-inch wheels, a spray-in bedliner, integrated gooseneck hitch and trailer-sway control (both standard on all but the S), a 110-volt outlet in the bed and a trailer-brake controller. Extendable, heated auto-dimming tow mirrors are also offered. Inside, Titan XD buyers can opt for heated/cooled leather power seats, 12-speaker audio, satellite radio, navigation, Siri Eyes Free and a DVD entertainment system.
Under the Hood
Two engines are offered in the Titan XD: a direct-injected 5.6-liter gasoline V8 with 390 horsepower, or an optional 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8 that puts out only 310 horsepower but churns out an earth-moving 555 lb-ft of torque. While the gasoline V8 mates to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the diesel employs a robust 6-speed automatic. Since the Titan XD has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 8,500 pounds (the maximum the truck can weigh, including payload, people and fluids), its fuel economy is not rated by the EPA.
390 horsepower @ 5,800 rpm
401 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: Not rated
5.0-liter turbodiesel V8
310 horsepower @ 3,200 rpm
555 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: Not rated
The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the 2019 Nissan Titan XD S Single Cab 2WD equipped with the 5.6-liter gasoline V8 is $32,890, plus a destination fee of $1,395. A 2WD Single Cab S equipped with the Cummins diesel V8 starts at $38,520. Most Crew Cab Titan XDs with gasoline V8s are priced in the $40,000s, whereas almost all Crew Cab Titan XDs powered by diesels are in the $50,000s. At the top of the Titan XD range, a 4WD Crew Cab Platinum Reserve with the gas V8 starts at $59,980, while a diesel version of that same pickup starts at $65,310.
For a quick comparison, note that the 2019 Ford F-150 starts at $28,155, while the 2019 Ford F-150 Super Crew King Ranch fitted with the new 3.0-liter V6 diesel starts at $58,815. As always, please check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for the 2019 Nissan Titan XD. In resale, the Titan XD holds up well against the Ford F-150 and is doing slightly better than the Ram 1500/2500 models.
OK, so what's next?
I'm interested in the newest version of this car. What's for sale near me?
I'm interested in this car, and I'd like to trade in my current car while I'm at it.
Then again, maybe I should be thinking about a used car.
