The TITAN continues to be among the most popular pickup trucks in North America, and an important component of its appeal is that Nissan does things differently than the domestic truck makers. Nissan was, for instance, the first automaker to include advanced driver-assistance technologies as standard equipment in a pickup. The TITAN is also highly capable and comfortable, and Lokey Nissan customers now have the choice of either the 2023 Nissan TITAN and the 2023 Nissan TITAN XD.
An important note when comparing the 2023 Nissan TITAN vs 2023 Nissan TITAN XD is that the two-door extended cab, which Nissan calls the King, is exclusive to the standard model and not available in the top trim. The four-door crew cab can be had in any trim with both the TITAN and TITAN XD. The extended cab is paired with a bed that measures 78.7 inches or about 6.6 feet. The crew cab is paired with a bed that measures 67.0 inches or about 5.6 feet. The S trim level has steel wheels. All upper trims have alloy wheels. For the TITAN, wheel sizes are 18 and 20 inches. For the TITAN XD, wheel sizes are 17, 18 and 20 inches. Power folding mirrors and, on 4x4 models, front tow hooks are standard with the SV an up. All LED exterior lighting is standard with the Pro-4X and up, and the Platinum Reserve adds chrome-finished wheels, chrome running boards, puddle lamps, in-bed LED lighting and a two-tone exterior. A spray-in bedliner is optional with the base trim and included beyond it.
There aren’t many differences when it comes to the cabins as Nissan offers the same standard features and options across the trim levels for the 2023 Nissan TITAN and 2023 Nissan TITAN XD. Headroom and legroom is the same in the crew cabs. If you’re considering the extended cab, know that that the front dimensions are the same but that second-row legroom is 25 inches rather than 39 inches.
The same V8 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission are in both models. A notable difference when comparing the 2023 Nissan TITAN vs 2023 Nissan TITAN XD is that four-wheel drive is standard with the TITAN XD. Rear-wheel drive is standard with the TITAN, and 4x4 is an additional cost. Another difference is that trailering equipment is offered as an option with the standard model but included with the TITAN XD, and of course, the TITAN XD can two and haul more: 2,450 vs 1,680 max tow rating and 9,210 vs 11,000 max tow rating.
Standard and optional infotainment and driver-assistance technologies are the same for both the TITAN and TITAN XD at Lokey Nissan. The driver-assistance suite is arguably the most impressive base package in the segment with features like collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring and rear automatic braking. The most notable options are adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system.
Nissan offers the same four trim levels for both the 2023 Nissan TITAN and 2023 Nissan TITAN XD: S, SV, Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve. The S is the work truck of the family but impressively equipped relative to most base trims in this segment. The SV is aimed at the average consumer and opens up many additional options. The Pro-4X is configured with off-road enthusiasts in mind, and the Platinum Reserve is a luxury trim with a wide range of high-end amenities and technologies.
