It is pretty much difficult to find a review about the 2015 Nissan Titan XD and you probably struggled until you found this article. The reason is that 2016 Nissan Titan XD model was released several months ago and a new one has already been announced. Therefore everyone is concentrated on these two but we decided to take a glance at the old model so you can check what has been updated since then.
At the time the Nissan Titan XD didn’t face huge modifications since it had been released. Nevertheless, it delivered the goods and most of the drivers were satisfied with its performance. It is one of the best full-size pickup trucks coming from Asia and it is gradually becoming one of the favorites in the USA. Nissan always puts design under the spotlight but don’t doubt his abilities. Even though it was released over two years ago it can stand side by side with the latest trucks.
Unusually for Nissan, the 2015 Nissan Titan XD came with only one engine option. Don’t get us wrong, this unit is quite excellent and has good reviews, but we hardly came to terms with the fact we won’t have at least two available units. (As far as we know the announced model is going to come with at least two different choices.) As you may have expected the 5.0l Cummins eight-cylinder is under the hood of this model. This engine was also used in the following model.
This diesel V8 is one of the most powerful engines to be found in this class. It can develop 310 HP and 555 pound-feet of torque hence you don’t need to worry that it will let you down on a heavy road. However, it cannot brag with fuel consumption but, to tell you the truth, there are no vehicles in this class that can be considered as fuel-efficient. The driving system is optional while there is only 6-speed automatic gearbox.
2015 Nissan Titan XD Design
This model came in several different versions but we are going to focus only on the 2015 Nissan Titan XD. All of them are quite similar and differences are subtle. As you can see in the pictures this pickup offers a lot of space to passengers and has enough room for cargo. Nissan developed a special design for seats – zero-gravity. They are absolutely comfortable and astonishing and you’ll simply adore them.
In general, it doesn’t look much different than its predecessors but it came with several innovations. Wheelbase is longer than before and it is even longer than other Titan models. In order to achieve better handling and stability, Nissan came up with a heavy-duty suspension design. Titan XD’s frame is stronger and stiffer thus the 2015 Nissan Titan XD may be safer than the predecessors.
The price of the 2015 Nissan Titan XD has dropped in the past year since there is a new model available. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg but it’s for those who are on a tight budget. At the moment the cheapest version costs around $41,000 and you can buy a new model for a couple of dollars more.
