With the arrival of the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra, the Titan remains the oldest full-size pickup on the market. The current generation has been around since 2016 and there is no doubt that the full redesign will happen in the next few years. However, the latest reports suggest that the 2023 Nissan Titan will remain pretty much the same and that it won’t feature any bigger updates.
This could easily be the final production year of the generation. So, we presume that not only the overall layout is about to remain the same, but the list of standard and available features as well. The Titan will continue to deliver pretty impressive ride quality, in a combination with a capable V8 engine and a user-friendly V8 engine. However, it will remain subpar in many aspects, such as max towing capacity, interior space and fuel economy.
We expect that the 2023 Nissan Titan will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2022.
2023 Nissan Titan Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the current generation has been around since 2016. This makes the Titan the oldest model in the segment not. Of course, it rides on Nissan’s well-known F-Alpha platform, which brings well-known benefits. This pickup is easy to drive and offers composed handling and a quite precise steering. In this aspect, the Titan is still one of the best models in the class. On the other hand, the Titan is less capable than rivals, while the ride isn’t particularly comfortable.
Styling-wise, the 2023 Nissan Titan will continue with the design that was introduced last year. The 2020 update has brought a number of interesting novelties, particularly at the front end. The new face looks modern, while there are even some interesting trim levels and visual packages that make this truck look even more attractive. All in all, this aspect shouldn’t bring surprises for the next year.
Interior changes aren’t expected either. We expect the 2023 Nissan Titan interior to remain the same, which is good and bad at the same time. On one side, we like the model’s large touchscreen and intuitive infotainment system. Also, the dashboard looks quite attractive, while the overall build quality is rather decent.
On the other hand, the Titan features one of the least spacious cabins in the segment, whether you choose a Kind Cab or Crew Cab model. Both models come with the standard bed size.
As this will probably be the final production year of the generation, we presume that the list of standard and available equipment won’t change too much. For reference, the current model comes standard with goodies like an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, two USB ports, satellite radio, and a six-speaker stereo. In more expensive versions, you can get upgrades like a 9-inch touch screen, HD Radio, navigation, two rear USB ports, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a household-style power outlet, a power-sliding rear window, and remote start.
When it comes to safety, all models should come standard with goodies like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. Additionally, there are options like adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, a surround-view parking camera system, and front parking sensors.
2023 Nissan Titan Engines
Under the hood, the 2023 Nissan Titan will continue with a familiar 5.6-liter V8 engine, which puts out around 400 horsepower and 412 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which does a pretty fine job. The overall performance is pretty good. Driving dynamics are surprisingly good, though the fuel economy could be better. You may count on about 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
When it comes to max towing capacity, the standard Titan is good for about 9,310 pounds, while the max payload is rated at 1,680 pounds. The upgraded Titan XD version is good for about 11,040 pounds when properly equipped. Also, it can haul up to 2,240 pounds. However, that’s still lower compared to other pickups in the segment, such as Ford F-150, Ram 1500 etc.
2023 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price
The 2023 Nissan Titan should arrive sometime in the last quarter of 2022, with a starting price of around 37.000 dollars.
