The 2022 Nissan Titan began production in July 2021, and rumor has it that the new model will have some upgraded features but will remain fairly similar to the 2021 model, which is a total refresh from past models.
One thing you can count on is the fact that at Matt Bowers Nissan Eastern Shore, we will have the latest vehicles in stock and the most up-to-date information. Just give us a call or stop by to see or test drive the newest Nissans for yourself.
The best place to start is with a thorough description of the most recent model, the 2021 Nissan Titan. This was a model lineup with the most standard power, tech, safety features of all trucks in its class. With a towing capacity of up to 11,040 pounds, 400-horsepower @5,800 rpm, and 413 lb-of torque @ 4,000 rpm, it is a powerful force to be reckoned with.
Of the four leading competitors, none of them offered all these safety features, standard on all models – but the Titan did:
While some of the competition offered a few of these as standard features and a few as available features, note that none of the above safety features were standard in either the 2021 Silverado or the 2021 Ram.
The Titan’s full-color 7-inch Advanced Drive-Assist Display, snuggled between the electroluminescent gauges, offers 12 panels with safety features, directions, fuel efficiency, and more.
Toggle between the options safely using the controls on your driving wheel. Intelligent Driver Alertness is an accessible tool that can help you track your driving habits to ensure you're not falling asleep behind the wheel. If it detects symptoms of drowsiness, it will warn you and suggest that you take a break from driving. Traffic sign recognition recognizes road signs as you drive to keep you up to date on the latest speeds.
Compared to its four biggest competitors, the Nissan Titan knocked it out of the park with technology. While other truck manufacturers offered just a 4.2-inch standard touch screen display size, the Nissan Titan’s was the largest in the class at 8 inches.
Other tech features that come standard on the Titan include Nissan Intelligent Mobility’s Safety Shield 360, which comes with six standard features that help drivers see better, sense more, and get assistance when they need it.
Unlike previous systems that simply maintain a predetermined speed, Intelligent Cruise Control helps you maintain an adjustable set distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning is a class-exclusive standard feature that monitors up to two automobiles ahead of you and warns you to slow down if it senses rapid deceleration in front of you.
Intelligent cruise control, high beam assist, and other advanced driver assist technology make it easy for owners to relax and enjoy their journey while staying safe and secure. Thanks to the Intelligent Around View Monitor, even parking is easy, which gives the driver a virtual composite 360-degree overhead view of the vehicle and surroundings.
Nissan points to the following changes in the 2022 Nissan Titan:
Not only is this one of the most reliable trucks on the market, but it’s backed by the best bumper-to-bumper limited warranty of its main competitors. A warranty covers it for five years or 100,000 miles. Four of the biggest competitors offer just three years and 36,000 miles of coverage.
Yes. In fact, it is more powerful than its major rivals. Compare its 400hp to just 355hp in the 2021 Chevy Silverado, or its standard torque of 413 lb-feet compared to just 383 lb-feet with the Silverado to see just how impressive this truck is.
It depends on what is most important to you in a vehicle. The Titan XD is a heavier-duty three-quarter-ton truck with a 6.5-ft. bed, so its wheelbase and length are larger, and its suspension is higher than the Titan.
The Titan crew cab with a 5.5-ft. bed has a 139.8-inch wheelbase and is 228.2 inches long and 79.5 inches wide (the Pro4X trim adds 1.3 inches of length and 1.2 inches of breadth), and height varies between 75.1 and 77.2 inches depending on the model.
The Titan XD has a 151.6-inch wheelbase and is 243.4 inches long, 79.5 inches wide, and 78.9 inches in height, with just a crew cab/6.5-foot box combination (with Pro4X bodywork altering those dimensions by similar amounts).
There are just two mechanical differences between the two Titans. One difference is in their standard drivetrains: the Titan comes standard with rear-wheel drive, while the Titan XD only has four-wheel drive. The Titan has an option for four-wheel drive. The final drive ratios of the two trucks are also different; the Titan's is 3.69:1, while the Titan XD's is 4:08:1.
What does that mean for you? It means that if you are looking for the heaviest duty option, then the Titan XD might be well worth the money. If you’re not, then the Nissan Titan likely offers plenty of power.
